Yeah the movie is... psychedelic. I can't watch it. It gives me a headache. Of course, we own a DVD of it too...

Do Mobos still have a place to plug the floppy drive into? I haven't built a machine in a while, in fact my last one has XP Pro on it.

Sorry I am on a roll tonight

Toliet.

That reminds me of the first load assignment I had to Joliet, Illinois. Whoever wrote up the load dispatch misspelled Joliet as Joilet.

My very first though was, Joilet, rhymes with Toilet.

And anyone who has ever been to Joilet will agree, it is indeed a Toilet.

I have a USB Floppy drive that likewise moves with my machines. It was originally a hot-swappable drive for a laptop and I found a cord that works.

I have to move the drivers too now, though - can't find them to download any more.
