One Hell of a Hard Drive

One of the most endearing parts of Classic Traveller, for me, is the "archaic" computer technology. I saw this photo today on the Internet and was reminded of players loading a model/2 computer onto a Far Trader. This 5 megabyte hard drive seems funny today - what's astounding, really, is that I can put 64 GIGABYTES on something the size of my thumbnail. I don't think those of us living in these times quite appreciate the rapidity of the advances we're making.
