When I was in University I had a friend Jim. Jim was a mature student in his 40s with a brain tumour. Well at least that’s what he told me, not sure if it was just an excuse to explain his nutty’ness.
Jim bought a new hard drive, probably showing my age now, but it was 500MB. He said to me – “I’ve got THE hard drive I’ll never EVER need a bigger one, I AM COMPLETE” … guess what a year later he was buying a 1GB hard drive (twice the capacity).
Fast forward to today, and you can buy a 4TB hard drive. That’s 8000 times the size of my friend’s hard drive to end all hard drives …
So my question is – why don’t they make hard drives that are big enough ?
OR will I ever buy a hard drive that is big enough to store everything on ?
OR am I always destined to feel inadequate in the hard drive department ?
OR will my computer ever feel satisfied with the size of hard drive I put in ?
BECAUSE – a lady once told me size doesn’t matter, but I’m not sure I believe her.
(trying to keep a straight face, but struggling, a lot)
