Not Anymore - THANKS MARK

Let's just hope there wasn't anything valuable on that ancient piece of #technology  - that's right kids, what you see tacked to this cork board is not a 3D printed save icon as some of you might think.

That is actually a 3.5" floppy seen out in the wild. And according to this note from Mark to Steve, Mark probably either didn't fully know what it was or at the very least understand how they work.

You see, inside those historic storage media is a magnetic disc that contains a whopping 1.44 megabytes of information. But they don't work so well with a freaking tack through them.

So to answer your question Mark...no, we no longer need them.

I did see a family of five or more on a scooter when I was there, but I did not see anything like this.

It looks awesome
The village of Inakadate, Aomori Prefecture is hoping to drive tourism with a Star Wars-themed rice paddy. The image of R2-D2, C-3PO, and the newly introduced BB-8 take up a 1-hectare field. The varying colors are created using 11 varieties of rice.

Why this is on The Register, I have no idea. I am still looking for the IT angle.
