Haven't used them for myself in a few years, but I still have both sizes hanging around. Got some 5.25" boxed up with the Commodore 64, I'm sure, and some odds and ends 3.5" for the odd repair job with old school floppy drive, win 9x puters...
I voted yes but havent used them forever for myself. But my aunt had a old mac and wanted some files off of it to her new laptop (Big jump) so I had to put it all on floppys and then on my computer then put it on disc them to her laptop lol
My mom was upset that her new PC at work didn't have a floppy drive. She didn't know how she was going to back things up. I then introduced her to the flash drive. lol I still use one for XP boot disks but that's about it.
My first computer at home was a Macintosh Plus, take an original Mac, give it a WHOLE MEG of RAM, a 800K 3.5 DSSD floppy drive (as opposed to a SSSD 400KB drive) and a SCSI port and that's basically a Mac Plus.
I had two of these floppy drives.... one floppy held my OS (System 6.0.8...upgraded from 3.2!) the other held about TEN apps! I could do everything except internet on it.
I later bumped it to the max of 4 MB and added an 80MB SCSI hard disk.
Looking back, I did some cool stuff with 1MB of RAM, 1.6MB of storage and a 8MHz CPU.
The fist computer I ever used was an Apple IIe without the 80 column display card (non enhanced config).... 64K of RAM, 1 5.25" floppy.
I haven't used floppy in a while. I still have a few laying around but just collecting dust. I have an internal 100MB ZIP in the tower but that isn't hooked up either. I might just get an 8 n 1 memory card reader or something like that to fill the slot.
The floppy got outdated as soon as CD R/Ws became the standard and could boot from that. Most of the time if you pre order a computer from a company you have to specify the drive and when they do add it, they add $30 or so to the total.
For the record though, I did vote what is a floppy because i am a smart ass like that.
I do remember the lazer discs. When I was in like 2nd grade or something like that we used them in class.
Figured everyone was getting tired of me posting this stuff in the Whore thread so I'll start one here. Maybe a following in the making? heh

Can you guys comment on what OBD2 readers are recommended? I had one of the $15-ish readers (ELM327) and bought the Torque app (so I have the full license), but I let my friend's son borrow it and never got it back. The unit I had looked pretty much like this one:

If you want more hard drive space on your laptop with an upgrade, I recommend one of the newer 1Tb SSHD drives. Around $55 dollars. These are Hybrid Hard Drives with 1Tb of standard platter storage space and 8Gb NAND (SSD) memory for OS files. You get fast boot times and generous standard...
