Computers – then and now

At work, our ITS support person is going to be transplanting our development system from one set of hardware to another (slightly more powerful).

He sent out an email annoucing that he would be doing a full system backup tonight (always a good idea when doing a major system change). He indicated that he would be running the backup from home.

I responded …

You wimp … back when I was doing upgrades we had to wait hours for the system to prompt us for the next diskette.
Of course, trying to lift a 200mb hard drive would give you a hernia … instead of having to worry having about it getting lost in your pocket change 🙂

That got a laugh.
