Got myself a Lacie Biggerdisk 1TB external disk unit. Less than 10 years ago I was working at BT and remember the IT Director claiming that we had a total storage capacity across all the data centres of almost 1TB. How things have changed. Not necessarily for the better though – programmers can now be lax and produce bloated code that depends on modern processing power and advanced storage systems. No longer does it seem necessary for programmers to produce elegant, streamlined solutions that they can be proud of.
