Yeah, I've got a 32 MB CF card that came with my first serious digital camera - 5 megapixels. It will hold two TIFF files ... .

These days, I am hard pressed to find anywhere that stocks even 8 GB CF cards ...

^ I have several boxes of these that contain the data and programming of SPSS to analyse what people did when typing stuff.

From the late-ish 1970s, when I was responsible for the assessment and purchase of the first screen-based word processing computer used in Telecom.

^ Who?

Me?



But it was the first time in the world that this had actually been done! So I am a tad proud of my experimental design, data collection and programming of one of the Telecom mainframes that had SPSS on it.

And so you should be. Well done.
No sarcasm or cheek implied.
It`s possibly worth money for someone somewhere.
