    I actually still have some sitting around the house. Don't know why, but I do.

    It's not a problem until they dig up the floppies... too funny.:-P

    I remember 8" floppies for the IBM S/34/36/38. :w00t:

    Ah yes - memories. I remember the time I knew what happiness was - let the memories live again.

    You know, it could have been stored on punch cards, or even paper tape! 😛

    Yes, I am quite familiar with these technologies.

    Bwhahahahaha... This is awesome. I had a manager once that wanted me to get the code off of microfishe. He also thought that we could restore a 300gig (Large at that time) database from microfishe.

    I have a huge pile of DAT tapes if anyone wants them. I was going to have them cremated with me when I finally blue-screen.

    That just made me laugh out loud! I remember 5.25 floppies but never had to use them for more than loading a game or something (I was still very young then).

    Raw Materials just keeps getting better and funnier all the time. Keep up the good work and keep 'em coming!

    Won't you just need a reboot? You may have to start up in safe mode, though to isolate the cause of the BSOD. 😉

    No surprise the contractor is dead. If he made a habit of taking the source code with him someone would soon put out a contract on him.
