the improbable infinity drive of impossibility

hi there

an ambition of many computer types out there - in particular those that like doing a bit of a hack of them cloud things and getting the nudie pictures - is to make a "flash" drive of a memory stick thing that has infinite storage space. no 8GB or 16GB limit on it; just store as much as you want.

is such a thing possible? from what i recall, yes. if i read this right - and i am happy to be corrected - if one combined all of the data stored on all of the internets, it would weigh......the same as a grain of sand. or something like that. so as a grain of sand is quite small compared to a memory stick, loads of such grains shoved together into a memory stick would give you, in actual if not real terms, an infinity capacity drive.

people are really working on one, you know. there have been two or three false claims, but at least they are trying i suppose.

i mention this because i might have made one, by accident.



yeah. that's what happened when i recently plugged in a 2GB drive to transfer some files around. as you can see, there are all sorts of peculiar files there. what are they? don't know, but the size listed of them suggest they go way - and i mean waaaaaay - beyond the 2,000,000KB max capacity it should have.

i am guessing that this is a sign that my flash drive is, in effect, knacked, although it is strangely working as i want it. perhaps all of this gibberish is a sign that either i have a sensational virus on the go on a piece of equipment, or otherwise it is the last ride of this stick before it dies.

well, it's been a fun ride, and in the words of that big Russian one out of Rocky IV, if it dies, it dies.

if you know what the above is and have absolutely nothing better to do with your time, feel free to leave a message or something.




be excellent to each other!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
