    Floppy discs ?



    CLICK HERE TO REMOVE THESE ADVERTS
    Am I the only one in the world still using floppy discs? I use an ancient (in relative terms) Akai sampler for my music thievery and creation and work with an equally ancient Yamaha keyboard. These are terrific for a daft old soul to play with himself (and sell the odd bits too), but I still have several hundred blank 3.5 floppies in sealed boxes that I am never likely to use, Anybody want some? If so, pm me and although I do not pressure for reimbursement of mailing charges, I do ask that a small donation is made to the Help For Heroes charity

    I think its probably just you. I would be interested to hear more about your music gear and sampling though. I bought a synth recently (Well A midi keyboard). As you may or may not know im a Rock star you see . Im well into recording stuff and have got well into the synth having played guitar for 40 odd years, its a new toy. The only thing I dont have is a sampler.

    Such old technology. You’ll be talking about LPs next.

    A mere youngster. I have a Teisco synth, a Yamaha PSR 640 plus a Akai S2000 midi sampler and a whole load of mixer junk, plus the Vox AD30 and severial guitary things, you may be a rock star, but I, my friend, am a rock god !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Seriously though, I seem to have acquired so much junk over the centuries of my existence, that a lot of it has to go. The market for my floppy backing tracks is, or rather, has died, so this poor old pensioner is desperately trying to offload a whole load of 60s,70s, and 80s junk. So any of you potential Karaoke stars wanting some backing trax, well try me, I've got some wonderful MoTown stuff too

    Cleaning out an old store cupboard at work found some five and half inch floppies, serca 1976 ish They are still selling Three and half inch floppies on ebay and commanding a good price, Anyway LP's are now making a come back "what goes around comes around", bring back the cassette tape, boombox and two pencils to fix the cassette tape.

    I thought your post was about a new bling word for male impotency!
    The value of a man should be seen in what he gives and not in what he is able to receive.
