That's probably why he said "these days" Have you priced the cost of
disk space now compared to 2 years ago? Two years ago, a 2 gig Seagate
Baracuda was CAN $2500. Now they're selling for under $1000 and larger
drives are even cheaper. The biggest problem now adays is finding a
drive under one gig for sale at all.
