    1. Did this to a roommate once…

      Took the magnet part off of a fridge magnet, stuck the disk to the fridge with a piece of this foam tape meant for hanging posters, then stuck the rigged magnet to the disk with another piece of tape.

      He was horrified for about 5 seconds until he realized that there was no way I had done this for real. Good times.

      I still have some old disks. I should make real fridge magnets from them.


    2. Oh man, the floppy disk.

      I have copies of turbopascal on the old 5.25.” I don’t know why i do, i mean i was only like 5-6 years old when that program was super popular. I think i was playing donald ducks quack attack and some game about human anatomy.


      • I have all my college papers on disk…somewhere. Last time I used one I couldn’t read them because it wasn’t being recognized. Some of them were typed on a c64 and later, Corel Word Perfect.


    3. I bought an external floppy drive when I got my laptop. Haven’t used it once, although I really should copy over my thesis paper and stuff. But then again, why? I’m never going to read it again.
      “Archaeological Contributions to the Study of Osteoporosis.” Anyone interested?
