@jslater: from earlier tests it seemed it did not affect everyone, or at
least not equally. For example, I have an ASUS EeePC 900 (4GB SSD, no
built-in webcam, purchased from Target) and I see the problem very
clearly on my Patriot Lite upgraded SSD but not on the stock ASUS 4GB
SSD. I haven't swapped the 4GB SSD back in since we have discovered the
trigger -- it's possible the stock SSD was somewhat affected but didn't
trash data as thoroughly or something. When I get back to my office
later I might get out the screwdriver set and try it.
I agree that this bug should be noted somewhere on that netbooks wiki
page. Please feel free to add it! (Though it would be hard to know
exactly which models might be affected. Maybe ALL of them, depending on
which SSD is installed.)
I believe some SSDs have been reported that are not installed in
If you see a good place to include the warning, please add it.
