"640K ought to be enough for anybody."
-Bill Gates

gotta start small... gotta use 3.5.

This is a nice idea and not badly executed.. I could have done without the bubbles though... O well, GMV

There are 10 types of people: those who know binary, and those who don't.

I know I'm being nitpicky but anyone nerdy enough to wear this would notice too... The metal slide is backwards. All 3.5" floppy disks have that part slide to the left not to the right when viewed from the side you've pictured.

man, your right. i was so confident in my memory of such a huge part of my past, and i screwed it up! well, shush, but i didn't sub my color breakdown yet, and it will be fixed in that (assuming this gets anywhere near the fog). lets all just go into the dyslexic mode that my brain runs on, and it'll look fine

btw thanks for pointing that out. maybe ill resub it if im motivated enough tonight...

the 3.5" disk released in 1984 was 720KB later upgraded to 1.44MB...

and Bill Gates was talking about RAM in that statement...

Other than that though, nice shirt : )

I know, just added it in there to give a reflection of the mindset at the times. seems these days my 2 gigs isn't even enough RAM.
