But I'm sure we've all got NOS diskettes of all type squirrelled away
for our projects.
More surprising, Sony has stopped making the Walkman.

I thought it was a link to a Viagra ad! :P
- After The Next HOPE, Jeff Jonas got me an archive containing the full Walnut Creek CP/M archive. I was able to finally get a copy of the interrupt-driven terminal emulator for the Kaypro II I'd been looking for, but was unable to find in the near-complete copies other people have mirrored on the Web. Since today is the 16 year anniversary of the last CD-ROM release (at least, by the dates on the files in the archive), I've created a BitTorrent tracker for it:
As far as I know, uploading shareware/freeware without modification is completely legal. I'd have hosted the file on my personal web server, but I don't have the bandwidth allowance for that. Help save a valuable retrocomputing resource while showing that BitTorrent does have legitimate uses!

Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical
minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd
by the clean end.
