Wait no longer my friends!

Reddit says this is from 1981. Google says this would be $9,800 in today’s dollars.

I’m surprised by that date, though. Even in 1994, when I got my first job, 10 MB was the standard desktop hard drive size in a PC. In that amount of space, you could fit DOS 6.22, Windows 3.11, Quatto Pro, Word Perfect, and even Doom.

The last time I downloaded a fancy mouse driver, it was 150 MB. Compressed. Lord knows what it expanded to on installation.

I checked the browser dev console. The Imgur web page showing this post took 3.5 MB of data transfer to display.

I remember when my rule of thumb for my internet connection speed was 1 MB per 10 minutes.

Get off my lawn.
