Abort, Retry, Fail

Who is General Failure, and why is he trying to read my floppy disc?

I actually have a USB floppy drive and have had to use it on extremely rare occasions.

Heh, it would only cost you around $3633 or so for enough floppies to hold 8.1, never mind by the time you finally get it installed it would have already hit end of life. (And quite possibly you as well.) Shoot, I hated waiting on Windows 95, which was what, 13?

I accidentally order 40 60 minutes recordable cassette tapes once.

 

I found better price on one site and told other site to cancel the order and they could not cancel. so both sites shipped me 20 tapes each.

 

what hell am I going to do with the all cassette taps

 

 

so far I used 1,  I was going use 20 for a project but plans changed, so now...

The disturbing thing is that Microsoft's metro style icons really don't look out of place on those out of date media items.

So thats a tad over 6GBs of floppys and at around one minuite a floppy it would take a mind numbing 62 hours just to read them then another half hour os so to install.

I am going to ask on Microsofts website if Windows 8.1 can be ordered on floppy drives :D

 

I hope they don't start calling me a troll

You mean on floppy disks, bro.  The drive is where you put the disk.
