Re: Luxury

The first computer I worked on that was graced with a hard drive was a Burroughs B21. It had 256K RAM and a massive 5MB drive which contained the OS (BTOS), the Pascal compiler (the C compiler was still a year or two away) and all the programs and data that I was developing. One summer, which wasn't quite as hot as this one has been, it spent several weeks with the case off as the heat was making the hard drive power down!
