The Machine Room is Back!
This is the recovered Machine Room from 2005. Please don't expect wonders. The look and feel of this site is nine years old, and so is its code. Some of the functionality has been recovered while the rest of the site is modernised and restructured. Watch this space!

This one is the a graph of the total peripheral storage capacity of machines (different types of discs, in most cases). It's intriguingly easy to distinguish the two clusters of data, the lower one being floppy drives (usually a maximum of four units, each storing around 360 to 600 KiB), the upper one being hard drives. There are very few cases where the middle ground was covered.
