Could you imagine showing a 64GB microSD card to somebody in the early 90s and telling them what it was and how much data it could store?

Yeah this holds 44,444 of those. It's also a lot faster and about 1000 times more durable.

Pluto will always be a planet to me. I think scientists discovered other Pluto-esque planetoids out there and rather than add new planets to our solar system they revoked Pluto's planet status.

I remember MS-DOS 1.0 - it didn't have those crazy things called "subdirectories" or "folders" yet, just like the OS it was derived from - CP/M. Version 2.0 was the first to have a directory tree structure ("folders").

I was at a weekend computer show many years ago and a vendor tried to sell some original Microsoft MS-DOS 1.0 floppies. His price went down and down until it was at 10¢ each and there were no takers. I bought a NIB Fortran set, and only later found out it would only run on version 1.0 of DOS. Shit.


CP/M 2.2 had no sub-directories in the file structure, but provided 16 "user areas" to organize files on a disk. The user area concept was to make the single-user version of CP/M somewhat compatible with multi-user MP/M systems. A common patch for the CP/M and derivative operating systems was to make one user area accessible to the user independent of the currently set user area. A supported command was "USER x" where x is a value from 0 to 15. User 0 was the default. If one changed to another user, such as USER 1, the material saved on the disk for this user would only be available to USER 1; USER 2 would not be able to see it or access it. Since CP/M was a single-user operating system, no security was provided for the user command; nothing would prevent any user from accessing any of the 16 user areas. The user area feature arguably had little utility on small floppy disks, though it was more useful for organizing files on machines equipped with large hard drives.

MS-DOS was a renamed form of 86-DOS – informally known as the Quick-and-Dirty Operating System or Q-DOShttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MS-DOS#cite_note-paterson-2][3][/url] – owned by Seattle Computer Products, written by Tim Paterson.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MS-DOS#cite_note-paterson-2][3][/url] Microsoft needed an operating system for the then-new Intel 8086 but it had none available, so it bought 86-DOS for $75,000 and licensed it as its own then released a version of it as MS-DOS 1.0.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MS-DOS#cite_note-paterson-2][3][/url] Development started in 1981, and MS-DOS 1.0 was released with the IBM PC in 1982.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MS-DOS#cite_note-paterson-2][3][/url] (86-DOS, in turn, was a clone of Digital Research's CP/M (for 8080/Z80 processors), ported to run on 8086 processors and with two notable differences compared to CP/M, an improved disk sector buffering logic and the introduction of FAT12 instead of the CP/M filesystem. This became possible because of the increased availability of RAM compared to what was typically available when CP/M was designed originally.)

So, what we have learned here is that people age over time, and products are discontinued if there is no demand?

I reckon the point was to make me feel nostalgic? I guess I remember those days a little more clearly than some others, maybe the device in my mind that applies the rose hued filter over childhood memories doesn't work.

I remember both. Does anyone here remember in '89, I think, when Ghostbusters 2 came out, and Hardee's had that "Slimer" sundae, with the green, goey topping? I used to love those things.

And I seem to remember that was also about the time that Hardee's went "healthy", and started using peanut oil or something to fry their crappy food, and the shit was always dry as an old ladys vagina
