    Well I completely missed 3k going by, so here's 3500 instead :)

    A quick competition to celebrate, winner is the first person to post in here with the right answer and the prize is a lovely bit case badge :D (when they arrive).

    So the question: This week I started a review and realised I couldn't continue without a floppy drive, what am I reviewing in this day in age which needs a floppy drive to function?

    Looking for a product type/name and manufacturer :)

    If the correct answer isn't posted before the review the compo will remain open... ;)

    Cheers,

    Rob.

    You're testing a new form of floppy drive which also produces 3.5" toasted sandwiches at the touch of a button. New flavours can be downloaded every week.

    ewww.. floppy sandwich :D ... FYI be careful jams and jellies are actually very efficient conductors and could fry, say, some ram chips... don't ask me how I know that so be carefull loading the ingredients into the drive.
