I was told tales of guys manfully wrestling out of balance disk drives that would bounce around the floor like bucking broncos.

And was shown a picture of the university's 128kb ram pack being delivered by cargo plane. It was the size of a shipping container.

I'm a little sad I missed that era. But maybe not that much.
