I just posted the article Sony says goodbye to floppy disks.

You probably didn’t know that Sony still makes floppy disks. It does, but not for much longer.

Is that a “high definition” floppy? (top-right logo) :slight_smile:

I go all the way back to the days of 5.25" disks. Now THOSE were floppies.
When I started a new job in 2000 I saw they had an old machine (still in use at the time) that used the old 8" floppies.

My first drive was a $100 surplus (128 KB!!!) 8" drive that I interfaced to a Commodore Vic-20. Wrote most of a page swapping OS for it too…How many of those could I backup on a BDR???

I think I actually have a pack of floppies sitting around collecting dust somewhere around here. Hmmm, what do do with them…
