Default Nostalgia

I'm having a bit of a clean up here; after 38+ years in the same house, I really, really need to do this. The house is tiny, and we don't have cellars here.

Just discovered: the box that my 800K external floppy drive came in, the one I bought with my original Mac in April 1986, a Mac Plus. I got the external floppy to avoid spending hours swapping floppy discs, which was a good idea. Except that the Mac OS still kept spitting the discs out and asking for a different one, something it continued to do for many years. The part number for the external drive was M0131, and it was made in Japan.

Also discovered: the box my ThunderScan came in. Remember ThunderScan?
