Previously, previously, previously, previously, previously, previously.
Goes well as a soundtrack when I pop discs into my "new" (refurbished) FloppyDisk[dot]com drive.
And then there's this (via Ars Technica):
Chuck E. Cheese still uses Floppy Disks in 2023 - but not for long.
Whose job is it to lick all the suction cups every morning?
Given how automated the factory is, i am sure they have a sexbot for that.
I like to think that in some dark mothballed factory, this manufacturing line still sits there, just waiting for Sarah Connor to crawl through it and push the "Go" button.
Watching manufacturing videos from 30+ years ago vs. now is like listening to a 45 at 33 1/3. Were they powered by steam engine?
For a while I kept wondering when they were going to put the platter in. I'm surprised it's so late in the process, but I guess that reduces the risk of damaging it.
I watched this expecting to see actual floppies being made. Somewhere in the middle I noticed the metal tabs being folded in and I realized that the video title is a lie. Those aren't floppies, those are STIFFIES!!
