Another fun meme brought to you by rfreebern.


Not exactly sure that a 3.5" floppy counts as a "trick," but ok ;)

***edit***
Also, I don't know what the flavour of evil is, but i would expect nothing less from alan_ie

Heh. I have plenty of the disks, but not the drive.

So how does one obtain a computer with a 3½" these days?

Really? Do you ever use it? I haven't had one in five years, now, and not on one single occasion have I missed it. Now that I can boot from CD, burn 4-gig discs for permanent storage, and use my mp3 player or networks for moving data between computers, I can't really think of a reason for floppies other than, how do you say it? Masochism?

I haven't used it in ages, but the few times that i've had *serious* windows crashes, it's been awfully useful. Also, some hardware (for some unexplainable reason) still have drivers only on floppy, so if you don't have a net connection, again, it's useful.

Oh, also, on a totally unrelated note: You actually did meet _goodmanbrown_. He and i were having a conversation recently because neither of you actually seemed to remember meeting one another. It was only once, if i recall correctly, but i introduced you outside by the steps before our Weimar Cinema class way back when.

I remember that! And then he took off immediately so as to avoid me imprinting his face in my memory. :P
