I have 80gigs, which I find to be a huge amount of space.  It is enough
that I get lazy and never delete anything :)  At the moment, I have 30
gigs free.

I probably stated my computer's speed wrong.  I mentioned its number of
cycles per second.  Its rated speed, when compared to Pentiums, is
either 2.8+Ghz or 3.0Ghz+.  I can't remember for sure as my CPU speed
monitor states the actual cycles.
