    Floppy Diskette T-Shirt

    Saw a guy on the bus (!) yesterday wearing this T-shirt. I want one!

    Introducing the Floppy Diskette:
    *Nearly Limitless 80 kilobytes of Storage
    *State-of-The-Art Cardboard Enclosure
    *Iron Oxide Coating
    *Read-Only Storage
    *Only Eight Inches!
    Never Use a Punchcard Again!

    Punch cards... heh heh. I remember filling in circles on cards with a pencil! I was about 5 or 6 years old then, I think. Child labour laws hadn't yet been introduced for the computing industry.

    Wait a minute...!
    I think there still aren't any (hence the Google Summer of Code) !

    PS I have nothing to do with the graphic or the shirt, so please don't flame me for spam. I only saw and liked the shirt!

    Right now the killer is being surrounded by a web of deduction, forensic science,
    and the latest in technology such as two-way radios and e-mail.

    When I started work in the 1980s, the 8" disks were rare beasts. I think I've only seen one desktop computer that used one, ever, but I could be mistaken. The only other time I recall seeing them was in some aging cluster controllers for the terminals at work.
