As you may know, I am a Computer Systems Analyst. I work with PC’s and have been doing that for many, many years.
Yesterday, I was in one of the remote offices, a user asked me what she should do with these disks –
She was new to the County and found them in a desk drawer and did not know what they were. They were from a PC that desk had at it a long time ago. We replace PC’s in that department every three or four years. This was from 1998 – just eight years ago – Windows 95 on floppy disks – 24 disks – drivers for pc – 35 disks. I also unpacked a new PC yesterday, all that above now comes on one CD with room to spare.
Yep, I would not want to go back, we don’t even put Floppy Disk drives in our new computers – who would use them????
Just so you can see what they look like un-bagged from the big bags.
Well then I had to un-pack all the individual floppy disks – this is the row that results from that – – –
One last shot – the baggage – waste from un-packing all those suckers!
Don’t tell me about the “good old days” – I hope I never see another floppy disk!
