Oh, yeah!
Do you know anything else about that vid, uki? Or more about those planes?
Search for J11 RC airplane.
A couple people on youtube made videos with kits from banggood.com (I've never heard of them), some commenters say they've not received theirs after waiting a long time.

Apple II didn't have SCSI.

And if there's one thing TV has taught me, it's that clones often (usually?) come out "wrong."

I was so stoked about superdiscs I was kind of disappointed with the advent of crappy CD-Rs and how they took over. I wanted rewritable data dammit!

I'm pretty sure I still have zip discs somewhere with a bunch of old writing and stuff on them. It would be cool to see what's still there.

as do I.. sadly, my zip drive was "cleaned out" by my wife.... I was later told SCSI is obsolete and I didn't need that taking up space anymore. :(
and now that you mention it....I wanna know what's on those old disks in the box.

I had one of these through high-school and my first couple of years of college. It was an amazing machine, and yes, it was 100% compatible with the Apple II. I ran ProComm on it connect with the university mainframe and wrote papers with AppleWorks.
I've never seen a floptical disk. I'm guessing they were popular in Japan like other magneto-optical media?

My Dad bought into SyQuest drives in the 1990s. They were hard disk platters in cartridges.

Your wife is the one telling you what technologies you're allowed to use and which are obsolete?

Sorry, dude, all due respect and all, but that's pretty hot.

i would love to access my old writing from my commodore 64 days, stored on 5-1/4" floppies, god knows how i'd access that content even if i got a drive for my pc

the real goldmine would be the freaky, propprietary floppies used by smith-corona back in the 80s ... i think they were 2-1/2" or something weird

:lol:
My business cash records are still backed up to Zip disks daily, for almost 20 years. Six years ago I configured it to also backup up over the network, but it still uses the zip disks as well. Every so often I check to see if the disks still work. Never saw the "click of death". I keep at least one system floppy-ready because sometimes customers come in with mystery disks.

I've got a USB zip drive lying around somewhere, so I know they made them. Might be worth finding one secondhand, for the lols?

One of the clinics I was working at still uses those Maxell 720 optical drives for image storage/archiving. Their Toshiba 7100 gamma camera was built in 1996 and uses a Sun Sparkstation running Solaris. The only thing in that lab that had been upgraded in the last twenty five years (including the Technologist) was the flat screen monitors that replaced the burned-out CRTs.

I want that piaggio scooter. I've seen it in real life, going around an "S" shaped curve. The independent suspension of the front 2 wheels is amazing, super smooth.
That toyota thing is... intriguing.

And I'm sure it's just a publicity photo, but if that woman rides that scooter in heels, she WILL get seriously hurt. Or anybody in any shoes. Most people think scooters are easy because of the handlebars, but they're not. It's not just about balance, it's the coordination between balance, brakes, and throttle. People fall on segways, which are supposed to have gyroscopes and be computer controlled. Segway lady is wearing a helmet, she's smart.

I think games are on mine. I was the cool kid in middle school who stole my dads zip drive and disks to take them to school and install games on the macs.

The way the computers were set up was anything not saved in your (user server) folder was deleted on machine restart. But you could mount multiple server folders if you had the user id/pw (after their system managment software was bypassed, I knew the hot key to turn off extensions, lol). So I'd install to the desktop than charge for the kids to log in (mount) and than I'd copy paste to their server folder. Only had 3 games to choose from, Nascar, Tombraider or Doom.

Nice.

What's funny is half the games my students play on the web now more or less look like they're out of the same era as Doom.
