That's a lot of space for porn....

I've just had two more storage units arrive that we're racking next week. Once added & configured that will put us at just over .5Pb of physical disk & .325Pb of raid disk. Nearly a full rack of disk!

I remember my first PC. 90MHz CPU, 16MB of RAM and a 200MB (odd) HDD. It didn’t even have Windows!

I remember the zx81 with 1kb of memory and a plugin brick that expanded it to 12kb. Probably the dawn of home computing.

And tapes to load games/programs. If we had to do that now, if I wanted to play BF1, I’d have to start loading a week before!

I remember the PC game arena that came on about 14-16 floppy disks. Moving between rooms in the game, you have to juggle disks and had enough time to go make a drink!

i remember "Dragons Lear" for my Amiga 500. it was on 35+1 DD 3`5 disks, after each Point you have had to go to the main disk(+1disk) and then put the next point disk in.
and i became king in my hood when boosted the Amiga 500 into a Amiga 1000 and got me a second drive for the main disk
