The answer to today’s #WhatsItWednesday question, as correctly identified on Micro.blog: a 5.25” floppy disk. This one with Pascal for Apple ][ on it, from about 1985. One of a few I still have in a carrying case.

The Micro.blog challenge word for day 25 is “call”. In moving back to my upstairs office, I didn’t bother plugging in my landline extension, since I never use it anyway — we have the most basic phone plan on it, with a per-minute charge for an outgoing call. 📷☎️ #mbnov

The Micro.blog challenge word for day 16 is “memory”. Who remembers cassette tapes? An ancient form of memory storage. This is my very first one from my childhood, with some badly-spelled theme songs recorded off TV in the early 1980s. 📷 #mbnov

The Micro.blog challenge word for day 13 is “guess”. When I ordered my iPhone 12 Pro Max, it said it’d be delivered today, but it has been pushed out to November 25; I can’t guess why, but hey, what’s a few more days. 📱 #mbnov

The Micro.blog challenge word for day 2 is “concentrate“. As many will observe, it will be hard to concentrate on work for the next couple of days… but I’ve got lots to do, so will leverage my ability to not worry about things I can’t control. 📷 #mbnov
