G4’s Floppy Disk Invite

g4_invite017.jpg

G4’s CES event invitations this year came printed on a 5.25-inch floppy disk. It makes me wish I had a still-functional drive around to see if there’s anything on it. (The only one I know I still own is an old TRS-80 and it’s sitting in a shed in Missouri.)

    HA! I’ve got a C-64 with a C1540, or maybe it’s a C1541, 5.25 floppy in the basement. Probably wouldn’t read what’s on that floppy tho’.

    I still have my Atari 810 disc drive if you want to send it me, if it’s empty I can always put Temple of Asphi on it for you.

    Our 8-track “Encomium” proved to be a Kenny Rogers album.

    Quick, call the RIAA! <g>

    The Disk idea looks like it was directly “borrowed/inspired” by the band 8 Bit Weapon’s Album in a Diskette format! ;)

    When the 1995 Led Zeppelin tribute CD “Encomium” was being sent to radio stations, they included what appeared to be a copy of the album on 8-track tape. Full label, track list, etc. (Don’t recall if there was a cardboard sleeve cover…)

    Of course we had an old beater stereo receiver in the shop that had an 8-track player in it…
