Answer is in white text below. Use cursor to see: Now I"m going to type a bunch of crap into this so you can't see the answer with a mouseover. I wonder how much junk I have to type before you won't be able to see it via the mouseover on the front page, that thing that DaFace complained about. Hopefully he'll be happy with this.


Its a hard disk in 1956.... The Volume and Size of 5MB memory storage in 1956. In September 1956 IBM launched the 305 RAMAC, the first computer with a hard disk drive (HDD). The HDD weighed over a ton and stored 5MB of data. Let us start appreciating your 4 GB jump drive!

Kinda ruins the fun when you mouse over the thread from the Lounge to see "hard disk" in the file name.

It's a computer AND a cubicle. They may be onto something.

And a space heater, I'm guessing.
