Which of the following is required to install Windows XP on a SATA RAID? (That's Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks.)
  1. RAID Drivers on a CD or DVD
  2. RAID Drivers on a USB memory stick
  3. RAID Drivers on a non-RAID hard drive
  4. RAID Drivers on a networked computer
  5. RAID Drivers on a floppy disk
  6. Any of the above

Oops, who said f? What do you think this is, the future? Of course not. The correct answer is e. Now, who can tell me why you would put a floppy disk drive in a modern computer?
  1. The computer won't actually start without it.
  2. The thrill of carrying a gigantic 1.44 megabytes of data in any large, flat pocket you might possess.
  3. It's the only removable media from which you can boot the computer.
  4. It takes up less space than a betamax drive or a vinyl turntable.
  5. It reminds you of your Amiga.
  6. Solely for the installation of RAID drivers. Every single other task requiring a floppy disk can be performed with some other (bettter) form of storage instead.

You guessed it, it's f. (Although e has some merit.)

Sigh. When I'm done, does anybody need a floppy drive, a floppy drive cable and a pack of ten 3.5" disks? Like new. Only used once.
