I guess the boy was too young to make difference between "dick" and "disk".
Anyway, how about NONE OF POLICE WAS BOTHERED THAT DAY ending, without any trouble?

How can the kid not know the word disk!? Art said it very clearly to him and yet he mispronounced it!!! Even my 5 year-old cousin would not miss that up!!! Shocked

Because Sex Ed > Computer Science.
Precisely. The whole concept of any removable media that could be described as a 'floppy disc' has been dead for at least 20 years, removable diskettes died with the ZIP-250 about five to ten years back and I'm pretty sure that the CD-ROM/DVD won't survive the rapid increase in reliability and low cost of Flash drives.


Until a couple of years ago I was responsible to realize the final version of a school newspaper made by children during summer games, because I was the only one that still had a computer with USB, CD and Floppy disk doors. Such a pain!

Kat! How about starting an argue? Or "You can't spell "ESSSSSSSSSS", boy?" line...

Kat: Wait a sec. You REALLY don't know what a diskette is?
A. Kingston: Since when such a thing as floppy ... I don't want to discuss it!
Art: No, YOU listen: DISSSSSSSSSK! Flop' diSSk. Diskette, in other words. Open a dictionary!

And, as cruelar pointed out, modern state education puts more emphasis on sex education than anything 'hard' that might benefit someone in adult life.

Not to be disagreeable, but there are times when (like with Games, Applications or Archives) where you DON'T want to be able to Erase/Write Over. DVD/Blu-Rays are great in that the Disk is big enough to be able to write a description with a fine line Sharpie that DOESN'T have to be Machine Read and small enough that storing a bunch of them doesn't eat up a lot of room while storing enough data to be worthwhile. Plus it's CHEAP. For what it would cost me to get a 32GB Thumb Drive/SD Card I can get 50 DVD-R's for 235 GB of Storage

He didn't say they were better, he said they were getting better. Given enough time, disks will eventually be phased out by flash drives.

so you are saying 50 burnable dvds cost about $15 because that is what i can get a 32 gig flash drive for. last i checked that would get me maybe 20 and they take up a lot more space and need so much more protection then a flash drive. do not worry soon enough film makers and others will catch on that dvd's are over rated bulky and way too easy to ruin with a simple scratch. if you wanted to get funky with a locked flash drive you could have a mini led display that would scroll the title of the movie/game along the flash drive when you press a button.

When you buy them a Thousand at a time? Easily. In addition, those "Archival" Quality DVD-r/+r's are Guaranteed for 25 Years with an expected Life Expectancy of over 100 (not that _I_ will care at that time) AND it's easy to prove in Court that the Data hasn't been Modified.

Flash Drive Data has a Life Expectancy of about 10 years. Just because a Flash Drive is "Locked" doesn't mean it can't be over/rewritten, all it takes is the right program. Your "Label" Idea sounds neat, how do you propose to power it? Might I remind you that ALL of the current Rechargeable Battery Systems have a Lifespan of around 5 to 7 years?

Sure you can make a CD/DVD "Unreadable" by making a Scratch on the Label Side (unless you've got the right Program), you think you can't make a Flash Memory unreadable through Physical Damage? Heck, they're only good for some Number of Cycles before they wear themselves out...

your normal flash drive/ssd has a million read write cycle usability which is very high. true current systems only last 5 to 10 years i know that i was conceptualizing. there is already some copper nano tube battery concepts out there though that could last 30-50 years. powering small devices is probably going to be its first use as they will be expensive in larger sizes. a flash drive I as strong as the casing that is provided. did you ever see them test out old nes cartridges and subject them to extreme where and tear. you have to work at destroying a flash drive. a cd/dvd on the other hand has the data fully exposed that any little scratch can damage the disk irreparably.

No, you might be old if you knew how to properly use a type writer.

Hey, I'm not hating on typists. I have a Lettera 22 myself, and I can use it almost as fast as the computer keyboard.

Additionally, put emphasis on the "might." As I said, I'm a typist, but I'm only twenty.

You know... I have B52 font to imitate a type writer, so when I have to "write" something, I pretend I have one instead of pen.
So, especially when I buy "warm yellow" paper, no one thinks I used Internet - sometimes people even think Internet uses me.

I had a typewriter for three years during my childhood. I actually fixed and older gentleman's typewriter and my grandpa's office. But I have no idea what celovision is. You got me there.

I remember at one time thinking the ColecoVision console was the absolute coolest.

Wait! sorry, it was the Intellivision console with the overlays for each game, I loved.
