Back in the misty dawn of time, when I was still at school, I spent two weeks at Hewlett-Packard on a work experience program. (This was when HP was still renowned for their engineering, rather than cursed as a pusher of expensive ink cartridges.)
At the time, HP was having a sale on disk drives. You could buy three 400 meg drives - and these were serious drives, with 14 inch platters stacked into cases as large as washing machines - three of these for just $250,000.
"But", said one salescritter to another, "how many customers do we have that need 1.2 gigabytes of disk?"
I downloaded 1.4 gigabytes of stuff today. Episodes 17 to 20 of Kodocha, and epsiodes 6 through 9 of Saikano (Saishuuheiki Kanojo). Fortunately, this didn't require me to buy $250,000 worth of disk to store it on. Though I did pick up a couple of DVD-RWs on the way to work. 4.7 gigabytes each. $8 a pop.
