Floppy Disk

I recently came across a box containing several unused 3.5 inch floppy disks, the old 1.44MB standard that began to disappear in the 90s. There was a time when I would not own a PC unless it had a 3.5 inch floppy drive and I recalled how much better they were than the old 8 and 5.25 inch disks.

I left them in the box at my workbench. I'll come back in 20 years and sell them on EBay.
