New pair of hard disks arrived today. 12TB — if my poor math is right, that’s about 600,000 times larger than the first hard drive I bought and installed in the late 1980s — I think it was 20MB
The computer was a no-name 8088 that was built from parts from Akihabara in Tokyo, originally with a pair of 5-1/4″ floppy drives. There was a foreign guy who built PCs. Adding the HD was a huge advancement back then!
