Harddisk of old time

Since our school days, we are taught generations of computer and so we learnt about vacuum tubes, which were as large as room or even bigger than a compartment to say. But , what about Harddisk.

This is a mere 5 MB harddisk used during 1956. But considering our brain which is equivalent to only 1 or 2 MB for storing information(as i read somewhere), 5 MB was indeed an adequate option for information storage at that time.

Now, i possess 80 GB while there are already 200 GB to 750 GB harddisks in the market.

Prashant Tamang -A Nepalese in Indian Idol 3

CONGRATULATION !!!! PRASHANT FOR BEING INDIAN IDOL Here in US, we don't have Sony channel, may be there is but the region where i am, we don't have. Whatever ... am glad to hear that PRASHANT became an INDIAN IDOL. Update(Sept,12 2007): Prashant Tamang in Boudha Prashant Tamang is becoming sensation day by day as the final decisive day is approaching nearer and nearer. For his support, lots of people are convincing people to vote for him. People are relating his victory with nation's pride which i don't like. Besides, the communal attachment for him is growing day by day. It's only we mongolian face supporting him in Nepal.

Yesterday, it was no moon day and i was lighting butterlamps in front of BoudhaNath stupa and suddenly i saw, there is huge banner of Prashant Tamang.

Do you have a Blogger(blogspot) Blog and do you know Google is deleting blogger blogs??

As usual, I was checking backlink tool to find some of the friends link (who has linked backed to me before) if they still have my link backlinked to me or not. Well, some of them didn't link back to me. I checked their site and the message I got upon visiting their blogspot(blogger) blog was something like "this blog has been deleted." As I was visiting some of the other blogspot blog, I found few of them got deleted too. I thought, may be they got over blogging. Recently more and more blogspot(blogger) blogs are unavailable or being deleted. Now, these things forced me to think why those blogs are being deleted. I usually check official google blog for any kind of stuff they are upto. Their blog was shut down too(it's some days before), they are online now though. But, it's quite eerie because this very blog of mine is hosted on blogger's server too. I don't know what happened to their official blog but it's confirmed news they are deleting blogs. M
