Are you geek?

Do you remember the importance of keeping a hole punch near your computer and why?

  1. Umm, that would be to make a write protect notch in your 5 1/4 floppies

    So, do I have true geek cred yet or what? 🙂

  2. Aww, LK beat me to it 🙁 But yes, I remember that well…

  3. And would you double side to get a full 360kb? (frankly I had to look that up as I was drawing a blank on the media size) High Density disks stored 1.2MB but weren’t they already double sided? Prior to DOS 2.0 the floppies held 160kb per size.

    I remember scouring the computer catalogs to find the cheapest disks. I remember one dollar per disk being pretty exciting and I think eventually by buying bulk we saw the price drop to five or maybe even two cents a disk.
