Nostalgia | How long has it been since you last

There was a shop I used to sometimes pass in Taipei that looked like it hadn’t updated its stock in decades which sold LaserDiscs and VCDs and various other things you don’t expect to see anymore. I’ve never actually had the pleasure of using LaserDisc myself.

I remember back in the days I had Windows 95 on like a dozen floppy discs. :laughing:

I think I only used it once.

Yeah, I had that box for floppy disks with a key too!!!
Not sure if it is still in my parents cellar in Germany.

Both single and double

Anybody remember these?

If you carefully cut out a notch on the other side (to disable write-protect), single-sided ones could usually be flipped over and used as double-sided. 360KB capacity, IIRC. woo!

I remember the countless hours to install win 95 and changing the discs. Then I had the fortune to get my hands on Win 98SE CD AND a 2x CD drive.

My grandfather used those up until like 5 years ago on his commodore 64 setup. He used to code some math problems in BASIC to stay mentally fit.
