ok, so the new 'puter is jolly lovely, runs nice and fast, and now has over a terabyte of storage.
That's a thousand gigabytes. 1,000,000,000,000 bytes
(yes, I know about SI vs binary values. stick with me here)
My first PC had 4MB of RAM, and a whopping 100MB of hard disk space.
how long before we look back and laugh. "Oh, remember the days? I had a *whole* terabyte of storage! how quaint! my phone has more than that!"
actually, my phone has a 4GB memory card in. A thousand times more than my old PC's RAM.
in other news, I hate this keyboard. It's really clacky and noisy, and my mouse is a cheap piece of crap.
in other other news: yes, I am procrastinating about writing any more of my NaNo.
