Ooh, my machine is SO much faster than yours... Oh, wait, that might be a bit of a problem...

I didn't get where I am today without starting with 80286 machines with 20MB hard disc drives, and a *one* Mb file seemed like something *huge*. If you were really lucky you go one of the special custom-built machines with (gasp) a 16MHz processor and a 1.44Mb 3.5" floppy disc drive. I'm pretty sure my bulging IT museum (in the attic) has some 8-bit coaxial Ethernet cards.
