How times change....

After months of procrastination I decided to take the bull by the horns this afternoon and tidy my study. After a couple of hours work I now have full access to both the floor and my desk ?? quite an achievement. As I tidied I rediscovered a few little gems, some of which will no doubt appear on my blog over the coming weeks when I??m short of something to shoot. However, the item that tickled me the most was this compact flash memory card. It came with my first digital camera, a Canon Powershot S50, in March 2004 and contains a staggering 32 megabytes of storage. I tried it in my current camera, a Canon 40D, and it??s big enough to store exactly one photograph! It??s amazing how quickly technology moves on ??no doubt I??ll look back on my current 4GB card in a few years time and marvel at how tiny it is!

Great close up! My first laptop (2000) had a hard drive capacity of 20 GB. LOL!

Congrats on extraordinary feat! If you feel like continuing to strike while the iron's hot, come and do mine...

I've kept an 8 Mb card from *my* first digicam, a Canon Powershot 10 (can't even remember the name), purchased in the mists of digital antiquity when men were men and Kodak was a company... way back in 2000. It is, of course, completely unusable.
