 Mega Floppy 2006

Wacky but fun. Enteresting use of old hardware. Well as a way to play with it at least.

"We work in the IT department of the college, and were inventorying equipment in the closet. We ran across a box of USB floppy drives that were just sitting there...looking very sad and lonely. We blew off the dust from them and decided to give them a second life. We also had to test the drives, and rather than waste the time to test each drive individually we thought it would just be easier to RAID them all together and test them all at once. So that's exactly what we did."
