Lazy Afternoons

it’s gloomy, school’s out, and the couch is our best friend.
it must be time for another hackaday lazy afternoon!

back once again with wednesday’s insanely lazy afternoon. college has gotten out for awhile for most of us and we’re finding a lot of spare time. normally i’d throw a speech your way, but you readers sent in some great content over the weekend, so let’s get right to it!

don’t ask me why you still have one of these, but if you do, make it bigger, better, stronger.
e-mail [xblackdemon] if you demand turning a 720k drive into a 1.44mb drive. again, not on us.

putting a game on a TI-92 calculator could be considered a hack because it’s not the norm for the calculator’s purpose

  1. Ugh, that floppy diskette trick is rather old. My “Windows 98 for dummies” book had a brief article on it (I read this in ’99 or so :P)..
    There was a good analogy of how it’s like using a rake to draw lines in the sand. The finer the sand, the more tracks you can make in the sand. A 720k floppy has large particles and a 1.44mb floppy has fine particles. You can make lots of little tracks in a thicker sand pile, but they will eventually collapse (the disk will go corrupt).
