@Horus and others ;)
I mentioned that yesterday I sorted, or rather didn't sort, a bag of old leads and bits and pieces. I came across this that I think is quite interesting.
9272

It is a 256MB USB drive. It could be 20 years ago that I bought it. I had learned of a small store in Dubai that was right up to date with digital components and as we were about to go to Dubai I took a taxi to this store. At about that time memory storage was limited to 64MB floppy discs if memory serves me right.
I paid about £40 for it and portable memory of 256MB was a big step forward. This is not a flash drive and from what I can see through the plastic case, it is a micro hard drive.
How things have moved on.

So they have Grandad, it does not seem so many years ago when my mate bought a 'single' speed CD player (not DVD) for his PC, it was over £500 and he had to travel from here to Luton to buy it. :o

In every way, Horus. In every way. :lol:

My children got so tired of hearing about how prices had risen when they were kids that my daughter said "I know you used to be able to feed a family of four on tuppence halfpenny a week, but that was then. Now you can't. Get used to it!" :lol: :D

I used to wind my own kids up by saying "When your mum and I were courting we could catch a bus to the cinema, buy two bags of sweets, some popcorn, salted peanuts and have an ice cream each in the interval. Then afterwards we would go and have a chinese meal in a restaurant with a couple of drinks then catch the bus back home again ....... and still have change out of a farthing" :lol: :lol:
