Bye Bye Floppies, I\'m sad to see you go

  1. I'm cleaning house and I think it's finally time to get rid of my floppies. I'm sad to see them go so I'm creating this obituary.

  2. You could store 'em somewhere :)
  3. They've been stored for 15 years. I'm never going to use them.
  4. Windows ME... oh you poor poor noob :x
  5. Lol. Floppy discs. They were perfectly fine back in the day, now you couldn't store a picture from a loading screen on them.
  6. How are you getting rid of them? I hope you're not binning them, I'm sure a collector would want them.
  7. Stick them in the microwave..awesome fireworks..

    Also; highly toxic...but colourful still
  8. Someone like you monsly?
  9. I'd probably have them - I've got a few old floppy games which I like having for the packaging. That said, they do take ups lot of space and I have no way of using them so I've never bothered to get many. Just thought it'd be a shame to bin them when people would probably buy them on eBay.
  10. I've got a computer with a flopydisc drive and as such I occasionally buy DOS games off of Ebay. I don't know why but I like legitimately owning stuff, so I don't bother downloading DOS games. Anyway, like monsly said, see if you can sell them somewhere. I know that there is a market for them on Ebay at least.
  11. I suppose if I were artsy I could glue them to a board and make a wall montage.
  12. How can monsly resist the floppy charms of Epic Pinball Cyborgirl?

  13. You monster. I bet you'd convert an antique cupboard into a media unit given half the chance.
  14. lol that is very cruel heheh just think of all the struggling bits and bytes in discland!! I don't want to be pinned up momma!!
