    On the plus side, jump drives are ridiculously cheap and large now. As are portable hard drives. I have a 64 GB jump drive on a lanyard that I carry around, and I have a 4 TB portable hard drive for backup.

    Pretty amazing the storage technology we have at our disposal, now.
    I was given a 512 GB thumb drive for an activity sponsored by my employer.
    I still remember when it was a big deal when the 5 1/4 inch floppies doubled in capacity to 360 KB

    Yeah...My first Mac at school was a HUGE 100 Mb. I thought, "How could anyone ever fill that much space?" Now it's just 20 digital pictures and an amount that is too small to even come on a jump drive...

    I can remember when I bought 'The latest' kick ass pc, It was the biggest thing available at the time in the UK ! I can remember installing it in our 'office' and setting everything up before my son returned from visiting a friend - he had no idea at all that I was intending to get a PC, let alone the latest model ! When he came home, I had left the office door open, by mistake and he noticed what he thought was a corner of a TV set. Curiosity overcame him and he went to investigate. As he opened the door wider he saw this amazing PC sitting enticingly on the desk, the monitor screen to one side with a keyboard infront, and a mouse and joystick in the space beside the keyboard. His face was a study and he let out such an exclamation of delight and disbelief. I think he thought all his birthdays and Christmases had arrived all at once !

    I can't for the life of me remember the make, but I do know that it was around 512 something-or-others and had a huge memory for it's day. I had also installed a pair of very good, well balanced speakers, so he was all set up for playing video games on it.

    I can remember the hours of hysterical laughter coming from me and my son as we played "Worms", I can remember my team was called 'Badass' and they had Yorkshire accents, my son's team were called 'Wyrms' and they had Scottish accents. It was a brilliant game ! But the only game that ever kept me up playing all night was a game called Sid Mieyer's Pirates - I loved that game, it was an adventure game and really addictive - brilliant fun. I wouldn't mind getting it again to play in Windows 10 on me noo HP Omen laptop ! Gawd, I think there would be no housework done by me if that happened ! Well we didn't have such wonderful stuff like computers, computer games, etc. when I was a child, so I'm only proposing to catch up on lost time !!!! It enthralls me to be able to control such lifelike people on a screen and have brilliant sound as well ! When I was a child, we had Dinky Toys and we used hard-backed books as buildings laid out on the dining room floor, and I used plastic thingies from a Chinese Checkers game that I had, as the people. I remember that the blue ones were police, the red ones were firefighters, the brown or green ones were 'baddies' and the other colours were just ordinary people ! Oh the imagination of a child ! Mind you I played for hours like that, with my two older brothers, much to my mum's relief !
    I'm a Saga-lout, growing old disgracefully
