Shortly after I wrote that post my computer informed me that I was running out of primary disk!
I went to Frys the next day to look for a solution and ended coming home with 2 x TBs of external storage! I was completely blown away by the technology.
I used to sell disk storage to a major bank, (I won't drop names but they are partial to red stagecoaches), for $5/MB back in 1994. If they had bought 2 x TBs from me in 1994, they would have had to cut a PO for $10,000,000! I whipped out my credit card at Frys and paid $198 for both TBs.
Ten years earlier I was selling 5 MB disk drives in word processors. I forget how much that option cost but it was probably very close to $100/MB.
Let see now....$100/MB x 2TBs = ?
My calculator just broke......It's showing EEEEEEEEEEEE!
