Got this in a forward today.

Hard Drive weight increasing?

Quote:
Apologies if this is the incorrect area for this question.

I've noticed that as I copy data/install programs on my Laptop, the weight of the Laptop increases. I have a bad back and am medically limited on the amount of weight I can carry so I need to be very carefull not to inflict injury upon myself.

I have also noticed my XBox feels heavier as well (the more games I save or purchase from arcade). I generally don't travel with my XBox so that is not an issue for me, but note the I am having the same results.

My ask, what is the weight/file ratio? So for example, how many GB's = 6oz? I dread the day I need a dolly to commute to work with my Laptop.


Thanks in advance!

Default Upset in the ocean!

A purser on a passenger liner was reprimanding a new bedroom steward:

"I have had a complaint from a young lady in cabin A20 that you burst in on her when she was taking a bath. Well what do you have to say for yourself?"

"Well it was like this, sir. I went in to change the towels thinking the cabin was empty - the bathroom door was not locked - and there she was in the bath"

"So what did you do?"

I said "Sorry madam," and shut the door again quick!

"My lad," said the purser, "In a situation like that you have to learn to use tact. First, you should have knocked, then, if you had entered as you describe, you should have said:

Sorry Sir

to let her think you hadn't seen that much."

A few days later the purser saw the steward with a black eye.

"What! on earth have you been up to now?" demanded the purser.

"Well sir, it's you and your tact. I took the honeymoon couple in A35 their morning coffee and they was.....they were.....they were in bed together, sir. So I put down the tray as if nothing was happening and, remembering what you said about tact, I asked:

"Which of you two gentlemen likes milk?"
