My age is showing -
I started on 5 1/4 floppys, 'fixed' to use both sides. Then I bought a 5MB 14 inch platter drive from a surplused PDP-11 (and wrote all the Z80 code to run it with CP/M) - when I got down to about 250K I got a 20MB PC drive - got down to about 500K I got nervouse and bought something larger
I now have 5TB of SSD and a WD 16TB NAS with RAID5 and about 10TB Free. I am starting to worry about the next iteration up.

My take away: you always need 10% more than what you have.
A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, navigate a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects! - Lazarus Long
