    OMG, I've been looking through notebooks lately, and the HP small notebook model is AMAZING!
    Aren't they though? I really want an HP notebook for college. That'll be nice.

    Just over a week ago I got a brand new PCI-Express SATA RAID card, the HighPoint RocketRAID 1820A, cost me just over £150 from scan.co.uk.

    Inside the box, apart from the RAID card and SATA cables, were 4 floppy discs. 3 for installing the RAID management software and 1 for the drivers.

    My motherboard has an onboard SATA RAID controller, before Windows will recognise my 160Gb SATA HDD (which is connected to my motherboard) I need to put the floppy disc in and install the drivers for it. (I've had to do this several times in the past during Windows setup because I used to install to the 160, but now I use an 80Gb ATA drive).

    Whenever I decide that Windows is running so unbearably slow that I need to re-install, I don't just format and re-install, I DBAN and re-install. Although granted, DBAN can also be burned to CD and used that way, I choose to use the floppy disc version. It also came in very handy when I was working at a secondary school and there were a few PC's that were FUBAR until DBAN came along, and at the school 99% of the PC's don't have CD-ROM drives.

    Ghosting PC's from an image can save sooooo much time, especially when you have 30 PC's. Rather than setting them all up individually you just set one up then take an image of it's hard drive, then you can use that image on all the other PC's. How do you access Ghost? Well at the school they had a network boot disk (a floppy disc) which booted to DOS and then ran a batch file which mapped a couple of network drives on the server and then ran ghost from the server. At home I use one floppy disc to get it to a DOS prompt then map the network drives manually (usually different every time, sometimes I don't map any) then I pop another floppy disc in and load ghost from that.

    I use floppy discs quite a lot. They're an old and comparatively unreliable way of transporting small amounts of data, and they're extremely useful.

    Edit: Just thought I'd add, that I'm actually using that RAID card in a normal PCI slot in another PC, the only reason I got a PCI-E card was because I didn't see a SATA RAID card that wasn't, but since PCI-E works in both PCI and PCI-E slots, I figure I may aswell get the PCI-E card incase I decide to upgrade my server in future.

    Also, since my server runs Linux not Windows, all 4 floppy discs are useless as they contain software and drivers for Windows only (but that's besides the point).

    Floppys

    Old man @ my work gave me a floppy disk and said it could not read cos it said the disk is not formatted. He had stuck the label on the top part of the disk.

    Oh dear flash dives are the dogs bollocks when it comes to smallscale file porting etc.

    You: "how could anyone use such olllld technology."
    Me: "Did you just skip right to the end or something?"

    Does that clear anything up?

    Dude, floppy discs bite (No pun intended). They'll work on one computer, and the next will say it needs to be formatted. I use my USB key for ALL my data storage, like All the documents I make for school, a copy of each of my websites are on there and a bunch of other random things are there. Floppy discs don't work for me.
    I love my USB key and my USB key loves me.
