And I thought I was already "old" because I have used floppy disks :-D
But have you used 8" floppy disks?
8" single sided, 5" single sided single density, 5" double sided double density, 3 1/2" floppy 720K, 3 1/2" floppy 1.44M, 128M optical WORM drives, ZIP drives, and even cassette tape on my TRS80.
Have you ever punched a hole in a single sided disk where the write-protect tab goes to use the other side? I did that to save money when I was poor but then realized the disk spins backwards when you use the other side and the dust collectors built into the envelope puts the dust back on the disk when you do that.
I also used a soldering iron to burn holes in 720K 3.5" floppies to let them store 1.44M (unreliably of course)
