Stick to graphic designing. You definitely have no future in computers.
A hard disk is >>not<< ROM (except in rare special cases where write
inhibit has been set with a jumper). It is certainly not a ROM on a
Macintosh, even. A disk cache most certainly doesn't use ROM "twerp",
and neither does a RAM disk. I won't comment further because your
twisted prose is too difficult to make any sense of.
