Nice present Hugh, although a little on the large side


I'll never forget the first 'windows' computer I bought, I distinctly remember the salesman saying "it has a 4.2 GB hard drive . . you'll never fill that"

Re: What have you just bought?

I have 2 x 500GB SSDs, and 2 x 2TB HD - OS on one SSD, games on the other, documents and media on one HD, Photos and other stuff on the other; all photos and documents backed up to OneDrive, Amazon Photos, and Google Drive (as well as a portable HD, which I keep at the MiLs when it's not backing stuff up (monthly)).

Re: What have you just bought?

My first PC (25 Mhz 386DX) which cost over a grand, had a 40 Mbyte HDD. In the pre-Windoze days (DOS 3.1) that seemed quite large.

Just recently added 2 Terabyte drive for HD films to the current desk machine (128G SSD, 500G HDD) which doubles up as a media server. This has bays and interfaces for another 3 drives. At the rate it's filling up I'll soon need to get another drive as well.

Flowable silicone to hopefully seal a tiny gap in the windscreen and sunroof seals that have been making puddles in both footwells.

Re: What have you just bought?

Going to have to go to B&Q tomorrow and get a toilet plunger. Got the blockage from hell.

Still it'll be cheaper than a plumber.
