It looks like Floppy Diskette is getting reckoned this week, and this feels like the perfect follow-up to it. Great design!

Yeah, so there's that...

Re: 56K

I'm a sucker for an art deco design. I just wish it was a little bigger on the shirt. Nonetheless, got my vote.

Ha! 14.4K. You young 'uns are spoiled. My first modem was 300 baud. Then 1200, then 2400, then 14.4K, then 28.8K, and finally 56K.

To put things in perspective, on the Apple II, 5.25" floppy disks had a 140K capacity, which is equivalent to less than five seconds of a typical MP3. But it still took nearly an hour and a half to download one disk worth of data at 300 baud.
