I'd like a poll! My vote goes against floppies. If I need a file 1.44 MB or less in another location, I'll email it to myself or burn it to a CD that I never close.

Haven't had one since November 2001. Approx one month after XP came out. That's how I remember the date.

Can't boot off a flash drive though. I have floppies for startup disks for Partition Magic, Norton Ghost, WIndows 9x, Seagate Discwizard, Western Digital Lifeguard tools, Maxtor Maxblast, AVG and Norton Antivirus, Madbootdisk, Memory diagnostics etc...

I've read that you can boot from a flash drive under certain circumstances, but that doesn't matter to me anyhow since I always boot to CD.

I have one. I use it for dianosis and such, as well as fdisking the drives. As far as they go though you don't really need them anymore. Alot of things are on boot cd's. If you just use it for the small things I guess it would still be good though.

Also does anyone still have a drive B - Tape Drive ?? :)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
