Just got me thinking, How many still have one of the above? and do you still use it?

Another one for you, Programmers seem to have lost the ability to create small fast programs. It must be that they have become lazy because most have big fast cpu's and hard drives

A floppy disk comes in handy when you get [on switching on your computer] a blank black screen with the message " NTLDR is missing " ... just happened this morning on my laptop :o[

I'm confident I'll be able to fix this with a floppy XP boot disk and recover 100gb of important sound files :o]

Whenever I do a self-build which is about every two years, I always include a 3.5" floppy and a multicard reader combo unit

"I have never required a floppy to recover a system."

Neither have I.
