    No doubt.
    My father-in-law was an electrical engineer that worked on those bad boys for control data.
    Huge changes in even the last 10 yrs.

    Pretty crazy how far computers have come.
    Hard to believe that something the size of two fridges held something the size of one MP3 song and now an IPod can hold 5000 easy.
    The best part of my day is when I get down on my knees, with my head in my hands, and thank GOD for everything he has given me.

    My computer teacher showed us an old one that was big and
    round with several layers to it, and it only held 256 mb!! Cost about $5000 to boot!! Things really have changed.

    Yeah it is pretty crazy. Technology just gets better and better and more and more advanced by the day it seems!

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!
