lol :) great !
The A drive? Good lord if you’re using 3.14MB floppy drive you’d need 7.64×10^9 of them. o_O
:D great! :D
so if I calculated right the Internet is **only** about 24 thousand terabytes?
24 Thousand ZIPPED !
This is silly, why use floppies when you can use DVD’s !
@Gordon why use DVD’s, when you can use cloud storage. It would make sense to store internet on the internet.
It’s just a joke :P. Floppy Disk is epic :P.
@Monk, is it just a joke? You don’t say? O:
41.2 kB/ps? at least he’s not using dial-up i guess.
7.64×10^9 + 1 is still a packaging option in the 3rd world.
can you imagine unzipping and getting to the last disk to find it corrupted?
It is not animated on my computer
hmmmm, that is one funny joke, gave me a good laugh :D , but with holographic storage that’s theoretically possible !
you only need about 4000 HVDs , according to wikipedia one disk can store up to 6TBs …
well the number isn’t real anyway , and there would be a “bandwidth” problem too . another problem is that there aren’t 4000 HVDs in the whole world ,probably , and commercial products only fit about 100-200 GB so far . And I didn’t mention the cost yet ..
Isn’t there like a Petabyte worth of information in the Library of Congress?
great,^_^ how i can fix? I have Blu-ray drive,you can change it for me ^___^
Oh no… I better get started on the download now before it gets bigger.
This joke is about 20 years old, but it still keeps circulating, and it’s still working on the download LOL.
Good to know about the Downloading the Internet [Animated Humorous Image].
On Megaupload closed servers, it can be saved. xD
this is stupid… if you wanted to backup the internet you should really print it out.. :P
زمانش نصف عمر جنتیم نیس
I miss those old dialog boxes. I miss the old Internet.
wait a minute… the whole internet is just under 24 petabytes? you mean i could fit it on a couple racks of data servers in my garage or barn? (i was figuring 12TB/node, 40 nodes per rack is ~24racks.. but IBM somehow managed to fit 12Pb in 7 racks.. so theoretically it can be done with 14)
