A very simple portable storage device. It's probably among the best choices for use on sneakernet because it's easy to write to and requires no special software. It's far faster to write to a floppy than to burn a CD, and it's kind of a waste to put a few documents on a CD. Plus you can edit files on a floppy without having to re-burn. They are slowly being replaced by USB drives, but they have at least a few years ahead before they are officially obsolete. Floppies are far more durable than most of those Linux geeks say they are, as long as you don't dip them in bleach or something. You can drag your keys all across the outside of a floppy and it'll still work fine. Try THAT with a CD. They hold 1.44 megabytes with standard formatting and are about 3.5 inches square.
Me: I need a box of floppies.
Linux geek: What are those?
Me: FLOPPIES! You know? The little squarish plastic things!?
Linux geek: Umm...
Me: Damnit! Am I the only one that still uses these things?
Linux geek: I bet you use Windows. Linux is better.
Me: Oh, kiss my ass.
The most evil, lowliest people on the face of the earth, Spend most of thier days chasing ambulances (ambulance chasers), or suing the hell out of innocent civilians for stating their opinions.
From an Urbandictionary stay/go vote thing:
I am a lawyer representing the company which this individual has said untruthful statements against. I am recommending you remove all anti-AOL, as a matter of fact all AOL, America Online, or any other names people come up with or within 14 days I will be placing a lawsuit against this website for closure due to slander against the AOL company. AOL did not request this, they had enough employees..."
Whether this was a real lawyer or not, its fairly typical of that they do.
