There are some amazing pictures on that website. Wow.
Sadly, my microdrive bit the dust.
When it came out, it was almost $500.
Thankfully, when it comes to memory cards, my card was not alone in dropping… the prices have fallen too. Even 2 gigabyte compact flash cards are looking cheaper (and much faster).

If you’re in the Boston area, you may want to know about Head of the Charles and the Pumpkin Festival (in Boston Common). Both are happening all day tomorrow, and the Head of the Charles is continuing through Sunday as well.
