Geez... You guys are just archaic... ;-)

Just yesterday we cleared out a basement storage room to be
converted to a AC'd server-room. I found lots of old computer stuff
that we threw away. Like some old tektronic crt integrated with
what looked like a floppy drive, the old really floppy-type. It
seemed to have kbd-in too on the back. It was really crummy. Also
found a lost cache of 20cm^2 floppies (8"?). Weird things lurk in
our basement...
