That's funny, I don't care what year you were born in (if you know what Floppy Disks are, of course.)

Not only is this design funny, but it gives me a twinge of nostalgia at the same time.

I heard a lot of hype about Woot switching to different shirt blanks???

Does anyone know is this on the old or new style tee? And are the sizes the name, or do I need to remeasure??

:/

Ahh yes, the good ol' days playing Oregon Trail, Lemonade Stand, etc. That and trying to learn programming on an IBM PC Jr.

Awesome design and perfect tee color. Also loving the aged look. A+

Also, this will be my first Woot on the Anvil tees..

EDIT: Looks like this is on AA blanks after all. I will have a ML to trade! Anyone?

IMPORTANT: As the transition to the new shirts continues, you should always check the size charts prior to ordering your shirts. In addition, be sure to recheck the chart if you order again at a later date (i.e. from the Reckoning).

Thank you!

Great design, AA Blanks, and I still have my $8 from the lack of Barrels of Crud and Monkies. Might just have to dig $4 extra and buy this epic shirt.

Floppies are read/write, not read-only.

Too bad the shirt gets the technology wrong.

Floppys like that weren't read only and the enclosures weren't cardboard, they were more like Tyvek.

Can anyone tell me what this means? I've been buying their shirts for a while now. Are the sizes different now with AA Blanks?

Perfect year. Perfect design. Perfect colors for it. Unfortunately, they are colors that are horrid on me. I can't get one for that reason, but I do love it. Congrats on the print.

Good to know. I thought the switch over was done already. Must have lots of Olive tees left

They were initially read-only. took a while to develop the write notch.

Woot is changing to (imported) Anvil blanks.

Up until the beginning of this week, the shirts have been American Apparel (made in the USA).

Thinking the same thing. Would have bought it, if it didn't have incorrect information. All of my friends at work would have pointed it out.

AA blanks are teh 'old' style that you've been buying. the new ones are similar, just a half inch shorter.

Then you could educate them. The initial floppy disks were read-only.
