Apparently the RAM crisis right now was caused by the extremely low prices
last year -- a lot of factories closed down as they couldn't make the $$$
with those margins. (That's where George Soros should have come in and
bought them all up ;)
But the news.com article seemed to indicate that things will be improving
RSN... it's just a temporary shortage of production. That's no good to me
though, I wanna play Quake 3 NOW!!
