It's a hard disk in 1956...
HDD with 5 MB storage.

In September 1956 IBM launched the 305 RAMAC, the first computer with a hard disk drive (HDD).


The HDD weighed over a ton and stored 5 MB of data.


Have you started to appreciate your 8 GB memory stick?

There is more computer power in a singing birthday card than was on board the Apollo 11 Lunar Lander!

Yeah my first hard drive was for my Tandy 1000, it was a 20MB drive and was on a "hard card" slot. My parents paid almost $1000 for just the hard drive upgrade. This was somewhere around 1985.

Later when I started my own BBS, I was running it off MFM and RLL drives on AMD 386/40's (had three of them, my BBS had 9 nodes and was running DesqView and PCBoard). This was somewhere around 1992.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
