Crazy computer home office

Cool... But I wouldn't like to have such thing (just 3 monitors for my desktop).

Isn't it?
Hey, Google, what's with you? The best company in the world ever! And? To lose such good thing. Heh, say "thanks" to your engeeners that took my proposal list on google techtalks and just recycled it to trash (not to the project).

TSSTcorp TS-L632D on acer (maybe on some other laptops)

After installing linux on my acer aspire 7110 series (7112WSMI) I always have hand-up after some amount of a time (20 ot 10 minutes or even 5 minutes).
dmesg shows such thing:
Feb 16 14:28:14 pfx-car kernel: [17186841.644000] Additional sense: Scsi parity error

The system just stops for 30 seconds. I thought it was HDD driver bug, but I've found it's a bug in the TS-L632D firmware. Acer hasn't updates for it (only AC1), but other manufactures have. See this page (to find firmware).
Reflashing from AC0 to AC1 didn't help me. But when the drive isn't empty I haven't this error - it's enough for me.
Waiting for comments :)
