And now for something completely different…

…from the Lost Format Preservation Society:

The floppy disk

The floppy disk

Floppy Disk
Dimensions: 5.25 x 5.25 inch
Storage Capacity: up to 1.2 Mb
Manufacturer: Dysan Corporation
Introduced in 1976 as a replacement for
IBM’s 8 inch floppy disk.  Later has been
made redundant after a battle between
2.0, 2.5, 2.8, 3.0, 3.5, 3.25 and 4.0

formats.  The 3.5
” format won.
