I was thinking they probably are. The the guy with the old moldy food is their grandpaw.

LW1: Ask yourself honestly if you are ready for dating after 24 years in an unhealthy relationship that you just recently summoned the courage to leave. JMHO, but you might want to take some time to work on yourself. I suggest that you tell loverman that you can be friends for now and date in a few months.

LW2: Why don't you clean out his refrigerator and put some fresh food in there instead of writing an advice columnist? If you can afford it, hire a housekeeper cook, or contact Meals on Wheels.

LW3: You have chosen a difficult path. You need to focus on your education and raising your child. Jesse will either get on board or not, but your child needs to be your first priority and your education is crucial to your ability to support yourself and your child.

South Florida is New York with better weather (except Miami, which is basically Cuba).

Back to the museum-quality office supplies: I didn't even know that 9" floppy disks ever existed until this conversation. And I've never seen an 8-track tape in person.
;P

Both the 9" and 8 track were used on mainframes i think.
And giant real to real tapes also (Forget which movie I saw those in)

Back in about 1978 I keyed in child support payments and then had to take the tape to, I guess, would be the mainframe? Down in the basement of the courthouse. cutting edge stuff...

I don't recall 9' floppies... well not floppy discs.

I was married to a TV audio engineer. We leap frogged from reel to reel and vinyl to cassettes for home audio. I knew the big reels for the computer- the tape was 2" wide, but I knew punch cards, too.(By crickety, in the old days we didn't have any of these new fandgled mega clouds . Makes the younguns soft.)

In my life I've used mimeograph machine to duplicate schedules and always remember that from school on test day. The ink was always that certain blue color. A girlfriend of mine had a reel-to-reel for music -- it was suppose to be the best sound. The punch cards that computers worked on -- those were a PITA. So glad those didn't last. Selectric Typewriter anyone? I believe we have a couple of those old things in the office somewhere. Floppies -- both 5" and the 9" ones -- I'm sure I have both in my cabinet at work or perhaps they got thrown out in the last move.

8 track tape -- always switching tracks right in the middle of the best part of the song.

So how long before USB flash drives are obsolete?
