But have you used 8" floppy disks?


They flew so much better across the data center. How about the 5MB platters used to make the disk packs?:-P


5MB platters used to make disc packs? That's really modern stuff Wow! The platters used to make an exchangeable disc pack when I first came across one had much (a couple of decimal orders of magnitude) smaller storage capacity ;-).

Oh, any my first modem was a 300 baud acoustic coupler.

Did you ever see the movie war games? They used one of those too. You take the receiver off the phone and place it in this device. What is so funny is that the movie used an automated dialer program to call all the numbers to find out which ones had modems answering so they can be hacked.

You cannot do that in real life with an acoustic coupler because you have to physically hang up the phone before you get another dial tone to dial another number.

Boy, I'm getting all nostalgic today. Those were the good ol' days. Thank you SQLServerCentral.com for the blast from the past.

I too had the 300 bd modem, but yes - there was software that could both take and convert a number to both DTMF or pulse dial codes. There were disconnect codes that could be used to simulate a hang-up.

Are we hijacking this thread for nostalgia or whatHehe

Haven't mentioned some of this stuff in years

I didn't know there was a disconnect tone until this very moment. I found a website that explains it. Of course my modem didn't support that tone so I didn't know about it.

Thank you very much. You made my day because I love learning new things. So this nostalgic thread was worthwhile for me.

Enjyoing every bit of the discussion here...I was a cobol/cics/idms programmer in the late nineties... and I used to think I was old Smile I mean I started late as well...

Tom I wanted to ask you...what does your signature mean? I am referring to these words below
Na tog mi gun tuit mi ach ma thuiteas tog!

OK, here are two translations:-
(literal) Don't lift me without I fall but if will fall lift.
(real meaning) Don't correct me unless I'm wrong but when I'm wrong, do.

I thought it was Croation at first but now I have my doubts because I cannot find all the words in that language.

Perhaps it's some form of Cobol or Pascal? ;-)
