I noticed this when I logged into my UBC email the other day:

It was accompanied by an announcement that the amount of storage UBC student1 email accounts were increased from 30 MB to a whopping 120 MB. That’s quadruple the space! Wow, whatever would one do with all that space? I mean, everyone knows that 640K is more than enough for anyone.

And so I couldn’t resist adapting the image to show the UBC account relative to my Gmail account:

I’m just sayin’.

1Faculty accounts were upped to 200 MB a few months ago in a move that prompted me to email my friends and say “Welcome me to 1997!”

  1. Oh my FUCKING gods… you should TOTALLY send that image to the Faculty mailing list and to everyone whose address at UBC you have!

    I cannot believe they can even CONSIDER making a big deal out of that PATHETIC increase! It’s embarrassing and makes them look retarded!
