Mega Spools

Of course, massive amounts of data call for massive spools! Here, we see a 600 giga-byte spooler in operation. Immense quantities of heat are generated as all these bits are packed into bytes, requiring the whole operation to take place outdoors. It is rumoured that Dr. Hornschnabel is hard at work on an algorithm to extract the energy which currently evaporates in the bitstream, and put it to work!
