 By the time of the [[progress_level_5|Fusion Age (PL 5)]], magnetic storage devices have been replaced by three-dimensional crystal hologram storage devices—commonly called 3Ds. A 3D contains a huge amount of space within its crystal interior, since data can be recorded in three dimensions instead of one. By the time of the [[progress_level_5|Fusion Age (PL 5)]], magnetic storage devices have been replaced by three-dimensional crystal hologram storage devices—commonly called 3Ds.

-Of course, program complexity and size has increased to fill the newly available space. While this makes new programming technologies possible, it doesn'​t provide the unlimited amount oi storage space that was predicted near the end of the Information Age. The programs needed to access the virtual reality aspect of the [[grid|Grid]] and otherwise run the machinery of this age are stupendously complex and incredibly large. A huge number of PL 5 programs can be stored an a single 3D, but no cutting-edge computer operator or [[gridrunner_advanced_class|gridpilot]] of the age uses the outdated, outmoded, and outclassed programs at the earlier Progress Level. They use updated, [[progress_level_6|PL 6]] versions of those same programs, versions that incorporate the newest programming techniques and make use at the newest technology.+Of course, program complexity and size has increased to fill the newly available space.
