the funny thing is, i still have one of those exact drives in my computer. it makes a great SWAP drive and it has been used extensivly since about 1997, and still works flawlessly with no bad sectors.. they just don't makem' like they used to!

Heh! Amazing how far we've come in such a short time. I remember when a 100 Mb drive was considered HUGE!

I remember paying over a hundred bucks for 4 megabytes of ram for my 486 with 66mhz. Damn that computer was fast, especially when you hit that turbo button.

I remember when my parents took me out to get our first family computer back in the late 80's. It was an Apple //c and I vividly remember the salesman bragging about how it had 128k of ram. I remember it so clearly that I can even quote him as saying, "You will NEVER need more than 128k ram"


Now that is funny!
