A shot in the dark here and I'm sure I'll be laughed out of the forum but here it comes.
I retreived my old Commodore C128 computer from my mother's loft recently and I was wondering whether anyone knows of any company that still make the old 5 1/4 inch floppy disks that we used to use before the 'Big Bang'.
You can probably tell that I'm not as young as I used to be...
I recall that NASA were advertising for these items some time ago. Apparently their software still uses this out of date stuff. (Also the computers controlling the space shuttle etc. is not much more advanced that a few Sinclair spectrum computers strung together.)
That sounds scary (if I were an astronaut) I have not seen one of these drives for years...Knowing that NASA use them in the shuttle is an eye opener...They were really prone to damage which is why the more solid 3.5 was invented, and how many of us build machines with those in now?
I only have one (and a cupboard full of old ones!)
