Whilst clearing out my office I found some receipts. Nothing special there, except that these were for IT kit I’d purchased in the late 90s/early 00s. I couldn’t beleive how much I’d paid for some of this stuff:
- Hayes Accura 56K modem (in December 1997): Â£139
- Pretec Compact Flash (CF) 56K modem (in October 2001): AUS$280 (about Â£112 back then)
- 64MB CF Card (in July 2001): Â£68 (and another Â£16 for a PCMCIA adapter)
That’s not a typo: that really was a 64MB flash card!
How times change!
