Floppies do fail

I have a piece of advice for everyone. When you put important stuff like assignments on a floppy
disk, make sure to make two copies or use a web mailing service to mail yourself a copy. I had an
assignment due at 2 pm and thus I took the 1:40 pm shuttle to my campus to print it out. Yes, you
know what’s coming. I didn’t realize it at first. I was thinking, hmm…my document is taking a
long time to load. But that nasty grinding sound tipped me off. I tried using another computer in
the hope that the first one’s floppy disk drive is somehow faulty. Nope…it didn’t load there
too.

Anyway, I signed the pink CSSE declaration forms, handed them to Franky (my assignment partner),
took the 2:40 pm shuttle back to Clayton, ran from the bus loop to the halls in 7 minutes (a
personal record!) and burst into my room to send the stuff to Franky, who printed it out and handed
it in coz I couldn’t get back in time. Oh, and much thanks to Franky for the kang tau. ;)

What’s the moral of this story? Don’t copy that floppy.

Oh wait…that’s not it. It’s “Always make backups“.
