2TB of slow storage is _still_ 2TB.

Damn spoiled youngsters!  In my day we had 64k of max program space on 
the PDP-11/44 and WE LIKED IT!  ;-)

I was dreaming Rem. Everything was so horribly dry, there on that 
planet, even people's hearts. As I watched the people who lived there 
from far away, I kept wondering why they went on living, how they kept 
on living. Rem, listen to me Rem. I did a bad thing. I did a bad thing.
