    Default The World's Largest USB Thumb Drive

    The Vintage Computer Festival last weekend featured racks and racks of old minicomputers, enough terminals for an entire lab, and enough ancient storage devices to save a YouTube video. These storage devices – hard disks, tape readers, and 8″ disk drives – were only connected to vintage hardware, with one exception: a DEC RL02 drive connected to a modern laptop via USB.

    Fabulous. Thanks Xelosia!

    I used to use RA60's on a regular basis, and this RL02 looks very similar to the RA60's. The 60's had a cool feature in that the drive enclosure and motors and electronics were one piece, and the Platters were removable. We used to have to change them periodically.

    I used the RA60's on a MicroVAX, but had used a PDP 11/44 prior to that with a Teletype console.

    Ahhhh...the old days.

    LOL

    Imagine him putting that "thumb-drive" in his back pocket and walking around.
    He would look like he took the world's biggest crap in his pants!!


    This was interesting to see.

    That is pretty cool that he was able to do that. He is no doubt a nerd of epic proportions!
