    That's absolutely hilarious

    Just think, that's 5MB and today the single biggest hard drive is 1TB which is 1024GB or 1,048,576MB. How times have changed.

    In 1982 we had a 10MB Hard Disk that was in its own cabinet the size of small fridge and a guy used to come out and carry out regular services on it.
