It's a law of the universe, that no matter how big a storage device is, be it RAM, flash, or hard disk, it is never large enough.

To think that I used to fit an entire years worth of school work on a pair of 3.5" floppy disks. And now I've run out of space for eBooks on a 8MB Palm, my 512MB MP3 player never has the music I want to listen to on it, and I've had to play musical hard disks after filling a 30GB partition.

I think the pornographers will end up winning that race, especially now they're a) filming in HD (which needs stupidly large amounts of space), and b) probably taking photos in RAW mode (which also uses stupidly large amounts of space). Ass to that the fact that hard disk manufacturers have basically run out of space at the moment, pending a technology breakthrough, and it's not hard to see why NAS systems are becoming popular.

Thinking about things, I do somewhere have a complete set of DOS 6.22 and Windows 3.11 install disks. Perhaps I should frame them and mount them on my wall, as a testament to past times.
