Heh. A post on why the MS-DOS floppy disk read cache was set at two seconds:
"Mark Zbikowski led the MS-DOS 2.0 project, and he sat down with a stopwatch while Aaron Reynolds and Chris Peters tried to swap floppy disks on an IBM PC as fast as they could.
They couldn’t do it under two seconds.
So the MS-DOS cache validity was set to two seconds."

Repair Kopitiam, an initiative in Singapore to teach people how to repair their household items, has opened up a third repair site. Nice work.
