memory for a non-ham computer at the house. 16 GB for around
$100 thanks to all the bitcoin mining morons out there.
Way back in the when, I remember paying that much or more
for 16 MEGS of memory and thought, "Wow I'll never use all of
Yep, we're old!

16GB USB sticks
were introduced by SanDisk in the 4th quarter of 2006.
I gladly paid $199.95 for one. They were NEW, they were
exciting, they were
recognized by my then-new 17' MacBook Pro. Many other devices
NOT recognize such devices.
But that was 4Q 2006. TODAY, faster-speed 16GB USB sticks are
for less that ten bucks each. AND they have much faster
read/write speeds ...
It's a wonderful time to be alive ... (grin)
