Computer Memory Then and Now

Computer Memory
Sometimes it’s hard to see the forest through the trees. In 1956 an IBM Model 350 Disk File – 5mb hard drive was unheard of and only used with gigantic main-frame systems that required highly specialized users. This baby held 50 24″ disks when 5 MB was virtually limitless storage.
Next to it today, I have even generously over-estimated the 500mb storage capacity of Sandisks 128GB flash memory, that doesn’t even use moving parts!

Why post this here? Gaming incorporates more than just dice and table-tops. To ignore that idea is foolish. I am working toward being able to contribute to the world of gaming beyond old school RPGs as I work on my skills and techniques.
These are exciting times to be an illustrator.
