    I thought selling something for $0.15 was stupid enough?

    Yep, pretty stupid in my book. If you sell 10 you have a full $1.50. Well worth the time you spent making a tileable texture. LOL.

    I still have stuff on floppies and diskettes. I also have a shoebox of cassette tapes with programs I recorded for Commodore 64. Hmmm, I have an extra TV. Maybe I should pull out one of the Commodores and use it.

    I have a Spectrum stored under the bed in the spare room, but it is not mine, tis Neil's who seems to think that it may be worth enough money by the time he retires to fund some of his retirement.

    I still own a fully functional Acorn Electron, data cassettes and a ZX Spectrum. Though, I have no idea where the power cable is for the Spectrum, and the caps/shift key is a bit gummy. I actually have a fair quantity of stuff still on floppy diskette, and by floppy I mean genuine 'floppy' diskettes; the 5 and a quarter inch ones. Though obviously no drive with which to use them in.

    Looking back I can see my old copy of Windows 95. On a whopping 11 disks!

    Actually, 5.25" discs are only semi-floppy -the originals were 8", otherwise a similar design.

    Very true, but by the time home computing really took off, 8" discs were superseded by its younger brother. And a good thing too, as they would have required significantly more table space for the drive :D

    I also remember owning a Zip Drive at one point. It was a doggedly slow parallel port high density drive which. at the time, had a capacity which rivaled cheap hard drives (Around 250Mb). I remember that I only ever ended up using it for backups due to the slow speed of parallel ports, though internal Zip drives fared much better.

    That old Zip drive was left in the attic of my old home I believe. Another relic consigned to history.

    Like this one http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zip_drive I hadn't used it for years, but I too left one behind when we moved here, and that was 4 years ago. Mine was an external one.

    Long time I ago I used one of those drives but I no longer have it or anything related to it.

    Who knows, one of these days we may have to go back to using the old equipment. Even the old Remington typewriters I still have. Darn, my daughter is right. She does live in a museum.

    If I still had the TV connecter I could boot and see just how much I've forgot in 20 plus years. Stupid Thief!!

    EDIT, Load "*",8,1 that loads the first file on a Floppy, remember that. Also put Menu boots on most none game Floppies, I would be good to go I think.

    I'll have to dig around in my stuff. I just might have an extra connector. You know how it is with us attic-dwellers; we keep everything.
