Oh damn, I got confused with the units there.

However, shouldn't you count with the actual data those pages could contain? Let's assume he doesnt carry microfilm or detailed printed graphs around. That makes about 3200 characters of Times New Roman size 11, per side. So that's 6400 characters per sheet of paper including whitespace. This means 6.4 kB of data per sheet of paper.
6.4*20*150=19.2 MB

Meh, it's larger than a 3.5 inch floppy but my memory stick contains a lot more.

Nooo, you need to think old school like that Teddy with his 80s piano scarf.

You said you didn't see the USB connector... it's because it just stores paper! :lol:

But for the record your maths is better than mine.

- 09 Adelaide street directory (to replace my ageing 2001 version)
- Underwear, including socks
- Car wash detergent
- Chamois
- Dual function torch
- Clarkson on Cars (not bad, although as his humour is generally topical, much of the printed articles are no longer revelent)
- $100 from grandma, plus a further $250 for the family. Not bad at all, especially considering...
- $50 from my other grandma to be split between the four of us (thats $12.50 each) in my immediate family. I dont mean to sound dicourteous here, but it's a pretty poor effort, it has to be said...:p

That pretty well covers it. Nothing particularly outstanding, but its all fairly useful nonetheless :)

Well, I finally got a camera - but it's not just for me to use, we're all going to use it. It's just a basic Nikon Coolpix costing about $200 AUD, but it's enough for what we intend to use it for. Random happy snaps, and the like. I've started playing around with it and the pics look nice enough on my compy screen and printed out on glossy photo paper, so I'm happy.

Besides that I got some essentials - eg. reading material, makeup, petrol moneys and chocolate! Oh, and a bar of eucalyptus oil soap that I can't stop smelling 'cause it's so nice. :picks it up and smells it again: LOL

Nope.

I think the eucalyptus smell reminds me of the first home I lived in as a kid. We lived about half an hour out of town and we were surrounded by a eucalyptus forrest. We did see plenty of koalas though. Then, when I was seven we moved into the middle of suburbia. I still miss that old house so much, and the smell takes me back there.

Edit: Gonna eat some chocolate now. :drool:
