A blast down ‘memory’ lane!


Rifling through an old storage box from ‘studios gone by’, I came across an unopened box of floppy disks, now theres a blast from the past! Looking at the packaging it was funny to think that these disks were being promoted as ‘the best memory available’, a whole, staggering 1.44mb! Not only that but ‘Double Sided High Density Super RD Ultra, with 135 Tracks Per Inch’ WOW, how things have changed.

I have a 4gb memory stick, of about the same thickness, that would fit 21 times into the overall footprint dimensions of one of these disks, 84gb of storage compared to 1.44mb, now that’s what I call progress!
