Remember, there is a generation that don't see nothing wrong here.
Boost if you get it ;)
@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 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 😭 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 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 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 Clearly that is just a piece of plastic taped to the diskette, and the disk is also held to the refrigerator with double sided tape for security.
Nothing to see here, move along.
