While this box and its contents might not seem too thrilling to a modern audience, to a 1980s computer jockey like myself, they meant the world. They meant storage and access. Perhaps “borrowed” games or at the very least games I write myself. I recently did a major purge of my vintage computer possessions and among the things I let got were hundreds of diskettes, many of them with this bold yellow Kodak label.
They were a black square of double-sided, double density heaven. A legend indeed.
