Remember, there is a generation that don't see nothing wrong here.

Boost if you get it ;)

@DavitMasia which generation is that supposed to be? the pre-floppy one that doesn't know physical memory gets erased by magnets? I believe they're all dead now.

@anarchiv @DavitMasia Yeah, sonny, I don’t see what all the fuss is about. That plastic punch card will be just fine.

@DavitMasia I'm zoomer and I get it baka

@Nonetrix @DavitMasia I read that as system restore dick…

@Meeper @DavitMasia I like to hold mine and do funny thing with hand at 3am sometimes

@DavitMasia@mastodon.social yeah, nothing wrong here, it's not demagnetizing that much with a constant field despite what the package says.

Now laying them on a transformer, rubbing it on a magnet or laying them out in the baking hot sun to dry, F.

Now here's something that newer gen hipsters, like me, def. don't get.

@DavitMasia jokes aside, I used to take floppies apart and replace the disk with a mini-cdrw. It made for a nice casing.

@DavitMasia ich booste gar nichts nur weil du das willst boomer

@anarchiv @DavitMasia I think it's the zoomers, the oldest of which are 20 this year.

@BalooUriza @DavitMasia
why though, it's not like this is exclusive to floppies

anyway, sorry for ruining a perfectly okay post...

@nick @DavitMasia Adjusting the heads on a tape deck?

@BalooUriza@social.tulsa.ok.us @DavitMasia@mastodon.social the clue is that you didn't degauss your screwdriver and got a fire mixtape as a test loaded

@DavitMasia
I physically flinched when I saw that. Before I read the label too.

@DavitMasia now I have a flash drive with pretty same contents 😁

@DavitMasia

won't the magnet damage the floppy disk?

@DavitMasia where am I, Facebook?

@anarchiv @DavitMasia I am a millennial and I still have some games for the amiga. Family still has 5 1/2 for the commandore.

@DavitMasia lol that text is too small for that save icon

not OC

@DavitMasia this is the nerd equivalent of a condom pinned to the wall with a "be safe" note

@DavitMasia Clearly that is just a piece of plastic taped to the diskette, and the disk is also held to the refrigerator with double sided tape for security.

Nothing to see here, move along. linus

@DavitMasia No. I will not boost that. I have seen people do that unironically.

@DavitMasia I got it (I'm 16), but I won't boost it cause I dont think its funny.

@wzqtparor @DavitMasia spiro agnew.. It was always the question with spiro Agnew...

@DavitMasia I'd say: Strike! :-)

@DavitMasia If you wanted to stick a floppy drive to something, apply it to a non-magnetic surface and nothing bad will happen.

@DavitMasia I‘m old... 😳😀

@DavitMasia My eyes are old and need new glasses or optician. But all I can read is "System lestore disk". So what's wrong with a 40 year old typo?

@DavitMasia How can the piss poor fridge magnet pin the disk to the fridge? In the middle of this disk is a (magnetical) steel piece, which shields magnetic fields...

@DavitMasia 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 it stick to the wall with a magnet

@DavitMasia oh well... 😱

@DavitMasia In the early days, backup copies were made using Xerox machines. No kidding! Another thing I've seen: those 5.25" punched and filed. To a backup "folder" of course…

@DavitMasia what's supposed to be wrong with this? it's not as if the magnet is over the data tracks, this disk will probably be just fine

@DavitMasia aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

@DavitMasia Well, I can see something wrong here: there is no image description. Does that count? 😇

@DavitMasia xdd boníssim 😂😂

@DavitMasia Same generation thinks that Beethoven is a dog and Pitbull a musician.

ya lo borró el imán

@DavitMasia OMG!! xDDDD

@DavitMasia Boomers pre-date this storage format and even they don't get it half the time.

@DavitMasia it took me a huge while to understand that this was supposed to be a refrigerator and that a magnet was used to pin it there

@matt @DavitMasia that was literally how I've interpreted the picture first cause I did not even see that it was a refrigerator and thought it was just a wall

@DavitMasia
Wow ! Bad Idea 😅

@DavitMasia Quand on pense que c'était déjà un gros progrès, ces disquettes-là

@DavitMasia 🙆🏻

@DavitMasia I won't because there is not alt text for the image but yeah. 🙂

@DavitMasia Tiens, j'ai pensé à toi @VoronoV

@DavitMasia lol @ remeber there's a generation post and pic.

@DavitMasia

Ha ha ha ! Such precautionous 😂

@DavitMasia
Nooooooooooooooo!!!!!!! 😵

@DavitMasia I'm probably part of that generation, but I'm guessing it's the magnet?
