Not that I can recall really, though there may have been that very momentarily twinge once or twice. To be honest I don't even bother to monitor disk space usage any more.

Meh, I've got a 12 TB file server and it's still not enough. Every time hard drive capacities increase, it seems I find ways to fill them up even faster.

Do you remember when telephones had cords on them and you could only walk as far as the cord would let you?

(I have a whole box of them with really long cords! Do you think that they're worth anything?)
When I was a kid we would visit my aunt & uncle in Madera CA, on the outskirts of Fresno, and their phone was still on a party line.

Ooohh, oohh, and my great-grandparents, in North Carolina, still had an outhouse when I was a kid. Apparently my great-grandfather thought it was gross to do your business in the same house in which you ate and slept.

My grandparents had an outhouse ... and chamber pots under the bed in the winter.

Fun times!

I don't know about gross, but it's certainly really, really bad feng shui!

Do you remember when you could beat your computer at chess?

Not any more. These days the computer whips the hell out of me at chess.

(Fortunately, it's still no match for me at kick boxing. )

Much more than I can read in my lifetime, that's for sure. Unless someone comes up with some majorly life extending treatment or something.

It's easy! Just keep having birthdays. They are very, very healthy for you. The more you have, the longer you live!

There ain't that many books in the world!

Hmmm, I think I've heard that phrase somewhere before.

12TB may or may not fit all the books in the Library of Congress. (*estimates range from 10 to 20 TB*)
