Ah, those days. I only had a 10MB drive on my PC clone so eventually I had to start compressing and unpacking directories to have enough space to work. Adding a 20MB drive was luxury. Nowadays it's not even enough to hold Notepad..
That's actually one of the few things that vexes me about modern IT (other than Microsoft in general): there seems to be depressing little extra value for the extra gigabytes that software needs. Why do I have to *wait* for Microsoft Word when I am *typing*? WTF is it doing?
