Floppy Disk Book.

This book is made from 5.25" floppy disk, spiral-bound with approx. 50 heavy-weight white paper and is the perfect gift for a geek.

If you don't know what this is, you missed out on an entire era of computing!

Okay... really dating myself, but I remember when they sold special "cutters" which would nick the side of the floppy to make it copy protected. If you wanted to write to the disc you had to cover it with tape. Of course my memory may be failing me but I think that's how it worked. All I know is when the 3.5" disks came out with their high density and hard shell it sure did make life a lot easier...

Anyone remmeber 8" floppies?

The original creator of these books (i.e., not Jonathan above) has some 8" available even though the raw material is becoming harder to acquire.
