Gametap... Somehow I don't think I have that many GB's.



  • Gametaps downloader messed up big time, once it realised I didn't have enough space for the game to download and install...Picture says it all.

     



  • If anybody has enough space on their home computer for one game, they have way too much time on their hands.



  • Given that it comes on five cds, I can understand you. They went a little nuts with the media there.



  • Notably, that's like 4 times as much data as the Hubble telescope has (or had, a couple of years ago when I talked to a guy from MySQL).  At the time, they had 1.6 exabytes, and you're clocking in at around 6.

    Yeah, but the Hubble telescope isn't even moderately entertaining as a platformer.

    I have about 1.2TBs of free space. Does that count?

    Whoah BTK, way to remember things correctly.  I went back and asked the guy what the actual numbers were, and he had this to say

    Actually, it is the Large
    Synoptic Survey Telescope (LSST) to which I referred.  I recently met
    up with Jacek Becla from Stanford who told me that the data
    collection will be in the area of 120 petabytes per year over a 10
    year period, which would come out to about 1.2 exabytes of data in the end.
