Does anyone know if one of these exists, or if not, where I can have one made? Today I was really missing the old 5.25" floppy disks, and I thought it would be cool if someone made a 5.25" floppy drive that connects via USB but lets you connect a USB flash drive to the back or something for actual data storage, but every time you access the flash drive, it makes the drive seem to read whatever 5.25" disk you have in the drive. Nostalgia, I guess, but yeah, I miss the sound of the reading of 5.25" floppies. I also liked they way they looked and felt.

I've said it before, I'll say it again.

You're a strange bird, CV.

I could hear the sound of a body falling down stairs after I read that. It made me laugh.



Does that make me a bad person?


I can explain it to you but I can't understand it for you.

And that made me laugh, so we are both evil.

I think there was a Wilhelm scream in there, too.

Never knew there was a name to go with that all too familiar scream.
