The time has FLOWN by - I remember my old Xenix 286 system that had
not 1, but *2* Seagate ST419s! They each provided a whooping 15
megabytes of formatted storage. My case was too small for 2 full
height 5.25" drives, so I one of them was outside the case. That was
my first personal *ix system and my first experience with UUCP. I've
been hooked ever since...
