Thanks to the wonders of Google Books, I spent last night reading through a 1985 issue of Computerworld, the newsweekly for the computer community. Within its pages I came across this advert for Dysan, a company that has the most amazing slogan – Somebody has to be better than everybody else!
The modesty extended to their write-up of its 5.25 inch floppy diskettes which were, by all accounts, the best diskettes ever created. Backed by a life-time warranty and 100% error-free guarantee, they implored you to take the long view when making your purchasing decisions!
Should you still have some of these diskettes around, you might need some assistance in getting them cleaned up. Unsurprisingly, YouTube has a video for that, complete with a retro Robocop 3 C64 dance track as musical accompaniment!
