Anybody remember the ZIP drives? I think it was IOMEGA.
I loved my Zip drive. I still have it. It was great for backups.
šŸ¤£I've got a zip drive & 3.5" floppy drive laying around.
I have an Apple II 5.25" I'm looking to unload. Comes with original cardboard box.
Yeah the cartridges sucked. The tiniest little bump against anything and they were toast.
The ZIP disks seemed pretty rugged to me. I never had a problem.

I was in heaven when CD burners came out. That and owning an iMac DV made for some real easy backups and CD burning because the mac was so reliable. My iMac DV still works. I used a 32x pass write re write wipe on the drive when I last formatted the drive so it's all ready for a new owner.

Yes they were, and the Jazz drives (1Gb). The Jazz were soooo buggy with corruption, I lost more data on those then I care to think about playing with those at home.

Actually while I said I had problems with the ZIP drives it was a Jazz drive I had problems with in the past. I used it to back up my dad's old Mac to a Jazz drive. Like Reptile said, burning to a CD made life so much better.

f***, you guys are annoying! Open your very own mega-nerdsterfire thread with your computer bullshit. Nobody except for the five dungeons and dragons guys on here cares. Seriously, it's getting old. Just imagine a world where nobody gives a shit about what motherboard you were using in 1997. People are coming to this thread to see if they can find a bargain, not what microchip pictures you're beating off to.

Good deal on a monocular for for the range bag for those days when you don't have the time or inclination to set up the spotting scope.
Normally just over $100 and currently $62.

Gosky Monocular

Gets good reviews from birdwatchers and I'll venture to say they're going to be pickier about the optics than targetwatchers,
Mine comes in tomorrow and I'll post what I think.

Damn, it's back over $100. At 62$ I would have jumped on it.

An ad for the following monocular has popped up several times. Looks good in the ads but I "thimk" it might belong in the too-good-to-be- true category.

My 3+ stops .308 and green tip 5.56. If I need more than that I'm just gonna put my hands up lol. For $80 more I'm sure they're pretty heavy and bulkier. Not great to leave in my car or give to my wife.

Oh and the 3+ are multi-curve so I can LARP in comfort.
