I remember 20MB hard disks

My dad's second IBMPC XT had a 20MB hard disk. And I never thought we'd fill it. This was the days of Displaywrite 3, Lotus Symphony and that's about it. Everything turned up on one 5.25" floppy, and perhaps a few extra disks of clip art.

Anyway, alovely new LaCie d2 120GB 7200rpm drive turned up today. 120GB - a scary amount. And even scarier is the fact that I seem to have already planned a way to fill it - it's less than 6 hours old!

(Okay, so getting all the MP3s off my work laptop and onto something I *owned* was probably wise, but still...)
