That brings to mind "Ron's rule of computing."   Back when 780's were the bomb, one of the managers told me that soon they would have a computer the performance of the 780 that would sit on a desktop and they'd give me one for myself and I'd be happy.     I told them, no, my expectations would also increase.

Ron's rule of computing:    I need a computer this (holding my arms out about as wide as the 780 CPU cabinet) big.
