Paper is not going anywhere. Not in another 100 years at least. Not till these folks do something about technology, backward compatibility and bit-decay (nice word that). I have books with me that are 30/40/50 years old. I would like to know what people with data on punched cards are doing with that right now.

1.2" - what is that? The 5 1/4 one or the Japanese one? I have only seen the regular 1.44" drives and the bigger one which is supposed to be more reliable. Anyway, all that is ancient ancient history. If someone talks about floppies, I ask them what's that.
