I recently got (paper) junkmail from a local disk reseller, pushing 26G
drives.  Yup.  Twenty-six gigs in a single drive.  (They weren't cheap,
but I think they were not out of line for their capacity.  I think it
was 26G - between 20 and 30, certainly.  I also didn't investigate
whether they were real gigs or disk-manufacturer gigs.)

Of course, even at 16 partitions per pack, they'd be good for not much
but enormous filesystems like an MN port matrix. :-)
