A Real Floppy Discovery

A little digging in an old cabinet today, and look what I’ve found.  Oh, well, some of you Gen-Y-ers may not recognize it: it’s a 5.25” floppy disk.  From the time they were really floppy.

Disk and sleeve mismatched (3M in IBM), old media reused – the handwritten word “diploma” means this must be the diskette that has my University Thesis on it … probably in an early release WordStar fomat.  (For the Y-ers, WordStar is a piece of computing history).

So all this means I have it and I don’t – highly unlikely I will ever be able to access it.  It’s all my fault.  I did not have my advice piece to follow back than.
