Yeah, I got a box of floppies. I keep them in case I feel the urge to install DOS 5.0 onto my computer and play wolfensein 3D.

I've seen a few new Gateway's that don't even have a floppy drive. I still use them.

A few people around the office are giving away their ZIP disks, too. Stupid CD-RW drives.

i'm disappointed in you G-man. you should have a dedicated machine with a RAID array for that very purpose.

Laptops are starting to become affordable with DVD+-RWs. Give a year or so, and CD-RWs will not be enough anymore.

CD-RW isn't enough for me even now. I've got 200GB of hard disc space total, I download about 5-10 GB every few days. Most things I download would be between 200 and 4000 megs. Definitely need the DVD-R.

But I don't use that anymore. websites like suprnova went down and you just can't find any good torrents anymore.

At least I can't
