Ah, bovinated shitboxes! Still not as bad as eMachines.

Is it bad that the vintage of the shit on these threads is moving forwards? No BBC Micro? No C=64? No ORIC-1? No PDP-11 or VAXen?

I know my hair's going white but I don't feel this old. Newfags will never know the horrors of twiddling a screwdriver to adjust the tracking of your cassette tape so it sounds nice and sharp not muffled, and adjusting the volume that fraction of a mm so maybe it'll load this time - you'll find out in 5 minutes...

Don't mistake this for nostalgia. New technology is brilliant. Old technology was a bit shit, we were just used to it. That's probably what we'll be staying about this in a decade or two.

Didn't the 3,5' solve the R/W protection issue?

>> No.55895672

It had nothing to do with R/W protection.

The purpose of drilling and stamping disks is to double the capacity.
3.5" Double Density floppies stored about 720 kB.
3.5" High Density floppies stored about 1440 kB.

The density was marked with a second hole on the top left. Due to the rules of mass production most DD floppies were actually HD, just lacking the marker hole.

That's why we drilled floppies back in the day.
There were no stamps for 3.5", only for 5.25"

5.25" floppies were all the same density but the hole allowed you to store data on the other side.

5.25" stamp
3.5" drill

Tape is still in use today, Google uses it for backup even. Pic related.

It's incredibly cheap for long term storage, even for the home user. The drives have a decently high price on them but the tapes themselves are crazy, with a bit of shopping around you can get 3TB tapes for $25

You will never find better price:size ratio for storage, just be sure you don't intend to keep retrieving files off it all the time, it's slow.

That tape helps prevent people sticking in non-agp cards into a universal slot that didn't have voltage keys (plastic tabs) to help deter stupidity. Original spec had the right slot be longer so it prevented non agp cards from being inserted. When agp pro cards were supported the left slot was added and it made it possible to go full retard and insert non agp cards. Shit design. You could stick "agp pro" cards that took extra power. The card pictured is a universal card that accepted old and new spec for voltage.

Yeah, that is part of the function.
It is plastic fan holder from the front-bottom area of 1997-98 AT case (but ATX could have it too).

The nice thing about it are the rims facing into the inside of the case - those should be there for support of extra long PCI/ISA cards that reached all the way there*. I never had any such card though, only saw PCB of one back at school - in arts teacher's collection of rubble, incidentally.

I wish modern phones would feel as good. It's something that you want to take with you because it's unobtrusive and has proper battery runtime and is cheap enough to not be stolen on vacation, but also good enough to have proper voice quality.

I used a flip phone on vacation that was nice but way too fucking quiet to hear anything if you were outside.
