@rummik you can get from me the original discs. For 20 Euro one ;)
@rummik the funny thing is, judging by the size of the sd card, even that mod is outdated, probably only capable of holding maybe 256mb to 2gb
@jackofallEves It's USB 3 and has a 128GB SD card according to the Imgur album! :O
@rummik HOLY FUCCENING SHIT
I WANT THIS
@rummik I feel this would make it a lot easier to not lose sd cards
@rummik <3 MacroSD Card
@rummik can't wait for someone to build the same thing for an "Actually Floppy" Floppy Disk
@rummik That is badass
@rummik Wow, that's hot.
@rummik c'est un put*** de hack sympathoche. Un bon moyen de cacher un carte sd avec les clefs luks du serveur.
@Truck It doesn't look like it is. From what I've read it's just a regular SD adapter inside a very fancy enclosure
@rummik This does not make me want one less, just... well...
It _does_ remind me of the floppy adapters for some cameras 20 years ago.
Ah well, I ... probably don' t need to go buy the things to make one today (:
@Truck I don't have any floppy drives or floppies floating around, or I'd probably be doing this ^^;
Tu viens de donner une raison au pourquoi je n'ai jamais jeté ni mes diskettes, ni le lecteur ! ^^
@rummik That reminds me, I had something called Professor Windows, for Windows 3.1 training. It came on a set of floppies. Sadly, I sacrificed the floppies a long time ago.
@rummik The floppy drive, you mean?
@rafu Yes. That mod is super amazing :3
@rummik I dunno ... Floppys caused me a fair amount of HeartAche.... :/
@rummik me too...
Technically, that should be easy to build, since tooling and molds for 3,5" FDDs and drives still exist, and electrrically it's replacing the drive head with a vertical contacting assembly...
I would consider embedding an SSD and pinout-ing either SATA-6G or USB 3.x as a faster option, through SD cards have replaced FDDs in their use cases...
@k3vk4 The person who did that used USB 3
@rummik for the cardreader: propably...
@rummik this is thw most extra thing ever and I love it
