I've been gathering up my collections of orbital elements, and seem 
to have a little over 100 megabytes (30+ MB compressed) or some 7e5 element
sets. These are mostly from recent times, though there are significant numbers
from the '80s.

Since I typed in some several thousand of these with my own fingers in the
days before easy electronic access, I wouldn't mind doing similar duty
if that were the only way to capture really interesting historical sets.
But let's hope NORAD or the Russians take pity and spare me that task! :)
