It's the BBC Micro crowd stumbling onto this place, clearly. The way forward is to have taglines exclusively about the BBC Micro given to us by Jimbob.

Semi-genuine question: did the person who came up with 'hard disc' and 'floppy disc' make the naming phallic intentionally? Because it feels like that's the only place the terminology could go.

According to google, floppy discs are called floppy because the first ones were 8 inches wide and made of vinyl, so the flopped about when you waved them around.
Hard discs are called hard discs because the inventor, Horace Heltsenberger, had - at the time of filing the patent - a full erection.

I presume he also spelled 'disk' wrong.

The forum was a wee bit wonky this week as you may have noticed, but everything should be back to normal now! If there's anything you've noticed that's still broken, let me or Balla know and we'll try our best to sort it. Thumbs Up!

They were all rushing to our Death Stranding thread to read our thoughts on the review scores when the embargo was lifted, obviously.
