End of an era

On Sunday I threw out the old Gateway 66Mhz Pentium machine on which I wrote my PhD thesis many years ago. It still worked, but the inability to boot from its CD drive was becoming a bit limiting! And its two hard disks had just under 2G of capacity between them.

Floppy disks

Today I threw out my floppy disks, realising that I no longer had any machine capable of reading them.
