Just a fun post about some old technology.  The link contains a picture of a 1 GB hard drive 20 years ago.  It's amazing how much technology has changed in those years.

I worked a job back in 1987 where the drives were that very same size. Only in that cool set up the drive itself was in a portable pack, weighing about 20 pounds, and you would drop it in something the size and shape of a standard washing machine.
