Remember, there is a generation that don't see nothing wrong here.
Boost if you get it ;)
@DavitMasia AAAAAAAARGH !
@DavitMasia hey, it's one of those 3d printed save icons.
@DavitMasia it’s already dead... what did that poor floppy do to deserve that..?
@DavitMasia which generation is that supposed to be? the pre-floppy one that doesn't know physical memory gets erased by magnets? I believe they're all dead now.
@DavitMasia Somebody has left all their magnetic poetry in the still in the blocks it came in and hasn't even bothers to separate the words....
@DavitMasia jaja all my code .basic stored at those then I remember when a friend introduce me a 256mb USB 🤓
@DavitMasia@mastodon.social yeah, nothing wrong here, it's not demagnetizing that much with a constant field despite what the package says.
Now laying them on a transformer, rubbing it on a magnet or laying them out in the baking hot sun to dry, F.
Now here's something that newer gen hipsters, like me, def. don't get.
@DavitMasia ut oh
@DavitMasia In the early days, backup copies were made using Xerox machines. No kidding! Another thing I've seen: those 5.25" punched and filed. To a backup "folder" of course…
@DavitMasia where am I, Facebook?
@DavitMasia The save icon is upside-down, so all your files are going to fall out.
floppy disks ...
i remember times using a driller on 700KB floppy disks to create detector hole to 1.44MB
i heard this story:
some child told his parent when seing a floppy disk for the first time :
Wow Cool this 3D printed save icon !
@DavitMasia Mort de rire
@DavitMasia what's wrong with that? (he says to appear younger than he is).
@DavitMasia Hahaha, the library I worked at had security gates that used to wreck those.
@DavitMasia "Hey why do you have a 3d printed save icon" heh
@DavitMasia 😭 I was laughing so hard about it! I showed it to my girl and she said: "what about it?" – it made my day!
@DavitMasia I’m just terrified, at one time I was afraid of storing floppy disks (5.25) together, but here it’s a magnet!
@DavitMasia Is that what SSDs used to look like?
I physically flinched when I saw that. Before I read the label too.
@DavitMasia explanation by someone I showed this: "of course I get it, there's an eraser right next to the text 'do not erase'." He had no idea how floppy disks work, though.
@DavitMasia now I have a flash drive with pretty same contents 😁
I hope read/write toggle was on read only 😜
@DavitMasia Curiosity and floppy disks, how magnetic. Curious how all my data is gone though.
@DavitMasia idk, young people still know what floppy disks are
@DavitMasia "How to format your disk" boomer edition 😄
@DavitMasia what's supposed to be wrong with this? it's not as if the magnet is over the data tracks, this disk will probably be just fine
@DavitMasia oh cool, somebody 3d printed a save icon~ 🧲💾
why do you want to hurt me like this
@DavitMasia Everybody should see something wrong here!
