122. Floppy Skull

Floppy Discs Cut with Scroll Saw. Being a Mac user I'd basically forgotten about these things, since we haven't had a drive for them in a long while. But I was reminded when I saw one on the street the other day and happily I found that I had actually stored a few of my old ones.

This is the cutest! It might even be cuter than the cute pink one.

Hey! Those are our coasters!

No. Wait...

A few days ago I found a floppy disk from a typefoundry – of course with a font on it. And it's "just" 6 or 7 years old. Crazy how time flies.

Skulls (and indeed coasters) are about all they're good for. Can you believe they only hold 1.44MB? That's like... a dozen Skull-A-Day photos compressed for web.

I'm thinking about the day when we muse, "Oh man, can you believe our hard drives used to be measured in GIGABYTES?!?" :D

I would have been seriously impressed if you had used 5.25-inch floppies. Those guys are hard to find. (I think have a bunch. *cough*)

Send me some Kim and I'll totally make a skull out of them. Now if we really want to go old school, does anyone have any of the old 8" floppies?

Kim said...

Hmm. I will have a dig around to see what arcane storage devices I still have.

I *might* even have punch cards... Ooh it's just like trash and treasure! How exciting!

Sorry, pretty lame, by me. I find the edgy-er ones, like the blades much more appropriate than Tofu or floppy discs...I get it, but - you're slackin' off, or just making some juicy ones for us for Halloween?
