Gasp! The Horror!
What shall we ever do with no floppy drives and floppy disks?
I really was unaware that companies were still making floppies, but apparently they are still being produced.
I took my Computer Science team to a UIL Regional Computer Science contest and we had to submit our solutions on floppy disks. I was quite appalled to say the least and I had to search for days to find floppies and drives. It was like going back in time. The contest was held at a University which made it even more ironic. None of my laptops or PCs have floppy drives.
For those hosting high school contests, PC^2 is the only way to go. Forget the disks and USB drives and use a Computer Science solution to solve a Computer Science problem. We host a contest here in the Houston area and we use PC^2. The UIL State Computer Science meet here in Texas will use PC^2 this year and we are all very happy about that.
So – glad to see the floppies are being killed off. It is a long overdue death!
