Doing a perfect 360
Do you need 5¼-inch diskettes? Let me know. I have boxes of the darn things.
And a drive, should it be necessary.
Love and segment registers,

Oh come on! Did you read all of that paragraph? I was talking about the inner conflict between "wanting the new but at the same time hating the inconvenience and expense of constantly having to buy something new."
The one I really hated was having to replace a perfectly good printer because it got to be a huge hassle to get ribbons for it. Of course, NOW I'm glad I have a color printer even if the cartridges are too f___ing expensive but... you know...It's just constantly having to buy something new.
Well, I'm perhaps less conflicted than some; I didn't take that drive out of service until 1998 (!), at which time it was probably as unrecognizable as spats, and no more useful.
My Betamax works, too. :)
