Is that an admission of guilt?

I need to see the custom painted floppy rolodex.

No.

Rolodex?

Always just stacked the little buggers up and wrapped a rubber band around them.

I have WinBlows 1.1 on floppy discs.

And the very first version of AutoCAD on discs too.

Not that anyone might want them or nothin'.

Just sayin'.

Oh, and love the Gangsta Floppy slam.

Dope, yo.

Or something like that.

Y'all may giggle, but I still find the occasional use for mine. It get dutifully migrated from machine to machine when I build an upgraded box.

I haven't slipped a floppy disc into a drive for longer than I can remember. In fact I only slip an optical disc into a drive when it is time to back up RAW camera files.

Come to think of it, I need to do that.

I remember floppies! I remember Microsoft Office coming on a heap of disks (I can't remember how many, but is was a mammoth pile) I had to load it on about a dozen new PCs, and just walked around from one PC to the next transferring each disk to the next one in the line!!
