    I had a staff member a year or two ago who was still bringing reports in from home on floppy, so I explained to her that the penstick I had in my hand, 4Gb, contained as much data as a 9m line of floppy disks stacked vertically the length of the staff room. It's scary when you work it out.

    I've got a RISC PC as well, though nowhere near as quick as that one!

    I'm stil USING one!

    It's a Sony one, it was fantastic in it's day. Still useful for our kids to use (ASD) and it's built like a brick sh!thouse. If you drop it, nothing damages it!

    Got it for 50 off eBay back in 2004. Found the StrongARM card in a storeroom at a local primary school!
