Computer Nostalgia

Oh, for the days when things were simpler. You played "Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing" on your Apple II. You enjoyed Oregon Trail ("You have died of cholera.") on your black and green monitor. All that computer was for was typing the occasional essay for school. (Remember dot-matrix printers?)

Then things got complicated. The Internet. Microsoft Office. Adobe's Creative Suite. Final Cut Pro. Flash memory. If I had a nickel for every stupid spreadsheet I need to do my damn job, I'd have enough to retire by next year.

So if you're yearning for the good ol' days of saving single papers on multiple diskettes, and hiring two guys to move your CPU across the room, try these CDRs in the shape of your old friend: the 3.5" floppy.

Feel like you're back in the days when bad hair was cool, not ironic.
