Cleaning Out The Basement, Finding Floppies


I spent 7 straight hours today cleaning out the basement.  I purged a lot of stuff collecting dust down there, including some old relics from years past.

For example, I found a bunch of old 3 1/2 inch floppy disks.  Back in the day, I backed up all my digital pictures on floppies.  Today, that almost seems laughable.  In an age where 160GB external hard drives go for $50 and flash drives are practically free, the floppy reeks of the 1990s.

The floppy disk may be dead, but it's still the de facto save icon.
