Comment Nokia 2720 fold (Score 1) 313

It's served me well for about 4 years now - still gets about 10 days on standby from a full charge on its original battery. SO & kids all have Samsung feature phones (not sure of the model - they look like Blackberry ripoffs) that take up to 64Gb MicroSD cards and seem quite happy with them. They're still on sale for around â90 (though sometimes on offer for ~â60) and seem to be in short supply, so I assume they're popular.

Comment Re:Iomega Zip Drive (Score 1) 466

I did this recently to revive to an old IBM laptop (an N33sx/16, i.e. pre-Thinkpad) with a dying floppy drive. I had two Zip drives, one USB, one parallel, so was able to transfer from a modern PC once I managed to install the DOS driver for the Zip drive via floppy. Of course it helped that there was still a functional DOS on the laptop from many years ago (DR-DOS 7.03 FTW!).

No, but the Wayback Machine always respects takedown requests. Note that the British Library maintains an archive of UK sites, and still has the speeches in question (from April 2008 onwards):

Every cloud has a silver lining; you should have sold it, and bought titanium.
