Ahhh… Floppies

There's nothing like the smell from a fresh box of floppies. That acrid plastic fragrance, reminding you how technologically advanced these little wonders are...

I recently found this box for a dollar at a local tip shop. Over the moon, I thought I could finally build a solid set of DOS 6.22 and other disks. I even got labels! Of differing colours!

Of course... none of them worked... They'd neither be read, formatted or imaged. I assume that fresh smell of acrid plastic meant that these had all been toasted by the sun at some point.

In the bin they go... Or maybe I should make some art.
