1,000,000:1



1982 1.2GB Hewlett Packard disk: $250,000*
2008 1.2TB Western Digital disk: $218**

* Technically, three 400MB drives each the size of a washing machine.
** Technically, two 640GB drives each the size of a paperback book.

1 What sort of scares me is that now even 1.2TB of SDRAM is an order of magnitude less expensive than the HP disk was.

2 But would you say those are EXACTLY a million to one?  Because, you know nobody's ever said it's a 999,995 to one shot, but it just might work, and then actually have it work.

Maybe blindfolded, on one foot and with your off hand.

:-D

3 Pixy --

I missed class when the new instructions were given out...can'st you drop me a private note so that I can get the new R/J up to speed? (No, I can't wax political -- I still work in television, but some of the rules have been relaxed)...
