How can I reuse or recycle floppy discs?
Remember when 1.44MB seemed like all the storage space you’d ever need? And then later on, when games came spread across 8 of them, meaning your heroic rescue of Sophia from the evil Nazis is interrupted while you change to disc five? And how it was so easy for the discs to corrupt if they got within a 14mile radius of a magnetic field? And how it took about half an hour to load and save to them?
Yes, we remember them so, so fondly. And have a giant stack of them to get rid of.
- Reduce: Use a USB key instead where possible.
- Reuse: Use them to make retro notepad covers, desktidies or bags.
