        Does anyone remember the 100Mb Zip drive and the "Click of Death"?
        All our backups used to go onto zip disks, the storage was HUGE at the time and now just laughable. That is technology for you. Have a box of old zip disks in the basement here at work collecting dust and will one day be pulled up out of curiosity as the next generation tries to figure out what these were for.

          Zips were a gift from God when they came out. Was always having to get files over to the Service Bureau's to get film output and it sure made file portability a cinch........ahhhhhhhh the good ole days

            The old "Sneaker Net"... running between desktops with a ZIP as it was quicker then the TokenRing and appletalk.

                I would buy an Oregon Trail on 5.25 or SimCity on 3.5.
