Teeny server space

I just discovered that the ''server space'' that I'm entitled to as an employee is... 50MB. And if you exceed that, the IT folks charge your School/Dept./Program/Centre AU$5 (per year) per 40MB. Yow.

Given that I had around 500MB of data... That's AU$50 towards a USB key -- which you would then only fill to an eighth of its capacity.

Yes, I know that maintaining a server costs in equipment and labor than a USB key or external hard drive -- but, sheesh! Fifty megs? By today's standards, that's **teeny**!!!

Isn't it?
