Yes indeed, there are first time
builders using your [CUSL2] guide. Musta read it at least a dozen times before buying the
mobo (bedtime, john, snackin' in front of the tube). Also bought a P3-733, Asus 7100, 128MB
stick of PC133 .. and went to town!
Except for a sound card problem (like a lot of
people) that's now solved, it's perfect! Appreciate your time and effort
you've put forth to share what you've learned with us newbies.
Rad, I just read your SCSI guide, and
was shocked. I finally found a level-headed SCSI user
that can debate the points without getting all bent out of shape.
want to say thanks. You
have one of the most useful sites I've ever seen. It ranks right up there with Windrivers and
I recently used your Ghost guide to test the program for the company
I work for. I've since mastered partition cloning and image transfer over both our
LAN and via direct cable crossover. Our 'hi-importance' units are now safe
thanks to your help.
Rad, Your site rocks! What a refreshing change from all the mealy mouthed tech sites. You need to put up some
banners so we can click and support you.
outstanding. Your Digital Warrior guide is a real eye-opener. I'm a computer
instructor in an elementary school. Let me assure you that, even as I write, a committee is
convening somewhere in one of our 50 states, trying to determine the computing
skill set required for today's student to be successful tomorrow. They
could save a lot of time by reading your guide.
I just spent an entire day creating a few simple pages on my site, so I have
some understanding of what you've done here. Do me a favor: go to amazon.com
& create a 'wish list' of gifts that
you'd like to receive. I promise I'll buy one item for you. Your
efforts deserve tangible appreciation.
Good site, good links, straight talk. I like your
ideas on partitioning. Very nice.
You guys are the best. I found your website
earlier this year through a search with Google.
I have been truly touched and motivated by the information you make available about USC Film school and your
I cant wait to finish my undergraduate degree so I can apply for
Thank you both for your time. The information you post is greatly appreciated.
Without your website I would have never been able to experience and get an idea of what film school at USC is like.
You have an amazing ability to educate
people in simple terms, so people like me can finally understand computer jargon. I'm
so glad I found your site.
Been checking your site now for a couple of months. I
initially stumbled across it whilst researching DV capture and liked
it so much that I've made it my home page! Love the informal and
friendly attitude to digital toys. The new CSS pages look great.

Rad, I gotta tell ya, your site is on my short list: I check it every day. Keep
up the good work.
San Mateo, Ca.
Thanks for the clarification and posting your SCSI guide. I learned a few things, despite
3 years of SCSI experience.
Nice site. I especially like the way you say when you're not sure about something.
It's such a refreshing change from the know-it-all mentality that
pervades so many tech sites.
Hey Rad, I just bought and installed a 9GB Quantum Atlas 10K II drive & an Adaptec
29160 card. Installed everything & Win2K without a hitch. The system really sings.
Thanks most of all for the inspiration. I love your site. (BTW, I used to live in Redondo
Beach, '85 - 88.)
Excellent! Enjoyed your brown bag approach to using Ghost. Thanks for the
Rad, A quick note to say thanks for the great motherboard user's guide. I've been
all over the net looking for some help with my CUSL2 and a new
Quantum Fireball+ that I'm trying to install. I still
need to reread your guide to get this problem sorted out, but so far, all the other
info has been fantastic.
Rad, I downloaded and read your SCSI
guide today. I found it interesting and useful. I use SCSI for my burner (Plextor),
but not my hard drives. I'm now re-thinking my hard drive situation and
considering SCSI for my next system - the Northwood P4. Keep up the good work. You
have an interesting site.
Nice job on the
[Ghost] guide. It was easy to follow, and I was still
awake at the end. Keep up the great work.
Terrific site you've got. I found it looking info about EAC. It
read as my own digital history. In other words, it's what I already
know, but written down in an informative way. I now recommend your
site to those who come to me for advice.
Rad, Thx for the CUSL2 guide. It was indispensable in setting up my system. Feel free
to use any/all of my message for your guide. Anything I can do to help the next
CUSL2 adopter is fine by me.
I like what you're doing. I just read your SCSI
guide. Now you got me thinking about a SCSI boot drive. I have a friend who wants me to help him put together a video-editing
system .. and you had that too! Deja vu, all over again. I gotta go lie down. =)
Thanks for the guide you wrote about the CUSL2. I read it several times
before deciding to buy. It's refreshing to see a real-life review by someone who
actually owns the board for once.
Rad, Love your site - especially the Yosemite pictures. I plan to hike up Half
Dome later this year on vacation. Gotta conquer that mountain before I hit 30!
Rad, Happy Anniversary and Congratulations!! I only
discovered your site a few months ago, but visiting Radified is now a daily
ritual. Your site has helped me so much! Keep up the great work. And best
of luck to Wendy as a filmmaker.
Just want to say thanks for providing an awesome CUSL2 users guide. I just
installed my board last night. It was the easiest motherboard I've ever
Just a note to let you know my new mobo arrived. BIOS flashed successfully this
time. With the help of your guide and guys at the asusboards.com, my 'puter
is up and running perfectly. Still
waiting for the SCSI card to arrive. That'll finish it for me. Lovin'
info in a way that is
- Rad, I read your article on the CUSL2 and thought
it kicked ass. In fact, that's the reason why I read your Ghost guide. It too is
comprehensive, yet simple. And I like the way you're quick to note when you're not sure of
something. Thanks for
You da man! Thanks so much for the article. Being a small startup company,
we're always looking for a few good men. Perhaps someday we could do business.
- I read all six of your CUSL2 pages on installing a CUSL2 motherboard. Last weekend I built my first computer. Everything seems to be working fine.
Just want to say thanks.
Rad, You saved my ass! Wish I had money to send you for writing this tutorial, but all I can send is my thanks. Everything worked just the way you said it would.
Can't believe how fast Ghost restored a 1-Gig image - Vrrroommm!
Rad, U run the coolest site. Well done.
I first came upon it while searching for help with Ghost, and found it A1+.
I now log on every day to check on the family .. well, that's the way it feels to me.
Almost every night at dinner I
have a little story to tell my wife about something I found in a corner of
your site. Loved the photo-tour of your vacation! Great work, many thanks.

That's one well-written article [Ghost guide]. It was truly a pleasure to read.
In fact, I just
sent the link to my editor.
- You're running a great site. Your Ghost guide is a great resource on
imaging. I keep the guide printed out in a binder IN FRONT OF the user's guide, since
yours more useful. =)
I lead the testing for Audio, Video & Streaming
applications here in the Windows group. I checked out your site & was
impressed. If you find any bugs in Windows XP with any of your AVS
applications, please email me.
I located your web site, which I can best describe as
fantastic .. very helpful & informative. No wonder Microsoft contacts

Just a quick note to say that you have a great site. Thanks for your efforts.
Thanks for a cool site. It's not often you
can learn something important and relevant in the space of ten minutes that
you weren't aware of before, but it happened for me here!! [Upgrade guide]
Just a quick note to let you know I read your excellent "Guide to SCSI - boot from a beast". Today I installed Win2K on an 18-gig, 10Krpm, IBM beast, with a Tekram DC390-U2W adapter.
Installation was nearly painless. Thanks for posting it! BTW - You were right, SCSI is cool!
- The Internet is great. I found your article just as I am moving to a used
IBM Intellistation PII-350 with dual-channel onboard UW SCSI.
Congratulations on a well-written article. Focused but very even-toned.
- I enjoy checking out your site from time to
time. I first found it while searching for info on the Intel 815E chipset. You
strike me as a non-computer guy who invested a great amount of time and effort
and learned plenty in your CUSL2 build experience. .. I envy you and your
family. Your lifestyle sounds most interesting.
I felt compelled to write a short note and
thank you for posting your experiences with computers and your family film
ventures, and urge you to continue.

- Rad, You are the King Of All Hard Drives! That was an excellent read.
- Wendy, After having spent several hours on your site, I just had to drop you a quick
thank-you note. I am starting classes at USC grad Film school in January. I feel
like I've gotten a tremendous head start just by reading your story.
free to contact me if you (or someone you know) needs any PA help on projects
this semester. I am a former web developer who is enjoying several months
"retirement" before starting classes next year. I live in Los Angeles
and would welcome the chance to get a head start on my education. I look forward
to eventually meeting you.
- Thanks for the great site. You
have a real gift for
This thing [Cheetah X15] is blazing- fast. You were correct in your guide.
The upgrade to SCSI is much more noticeable
than a faster CPU. I try telling people that when they're thinking about a new HDD. But most don't want to spend the cash. I felt that
way too for a long time, but now I'm sorry I didn't do this sooner.
Very nice! You nailed the pro's & cons of SCSI vs IDE .. something I've been
trying to do for ... ever! Been running SCSI for almost 10 years, and finally
built my first IDE rig. When it comes to certain things, SCSI
beats IDE hands down. Others - like price - IDE is hard to beat. Best
thing was when you said how people who diss SCSI the worst usually have never used it. Thx for giving me a place to send unbelievers.
I'd like to thank you for your 'little' [CUSL2] project. It's been most helpful.
The entrance to your site is a joy. Not only does it bring back fond
memories of The Matrix, but your aphorisms about creativity are what the
world needs. Also, your Ghost online assistance pages are extremely well put
Are you using any search engine strategies, or paying for search results?
I'm interested, cuz the phrase "norton ghost" ranks #3 on Google,
which is very high for a web page that was introduced only

Rad, A quick note to say that I loved your Boot from a SCSI beast article. Good
read, great info.
Can't believe the luck I had finding your site. Just
bought a CUSL2 yesterday, along with a P3-800. Your guide will no doubt come in handy
the next few days. I can tell already that it will save me many a headache. I'm
leaving tomorrow to spend a few days in the mtns.
I printed your guide and will
take with me, so I can jump right in when I
return. Rebuilding a 2-yr old system, based on a P2B-S with P2-450. Was also surprised to see
you're using the CardDeluxe. The one by Digital Audio Labs? .. that was featured in Stereophile last month?
