Blacksheep. .. .Can't believe I'm making this, perhaps the saddest post in Pprune history, but the B: drive goes back to the pre hard disc days of PC's, when they would generally have two floppy drives, hence the hard drive when introduced became C:. .. .Take me away and shoot me somebody....

Ivchenko,. .. .I have images of people of my generation being asked by their kids in 10-15 years time: "Daddy, why is there an A: drive, and a C: drive, but no B: drive".. .. .Other questions we might be asked by our kids: "Daddy, why does milk come in 568ml bottles, isn't that a really strange number?". .. .Anyone got any more?. .. .FFF. .----------

Ah, that's all very well but when the CD ROM was invented they could have put it B:\ack! <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="biggrin.gif" /> . .. .I once had a B:\ drive it was B:\eautiful. I still have my old Spectrum and it still works! I don't know why I know that, am I just a sentimental old fool? Can anyone else still write programmes in Spectrum Basic or am I alone? Was Clive Sinclair just eccentric or truly mad? Why does Bill Gates wear a suit - has he been turned? Whats an A:\xiom anyway?. .. .**********************************. .Through difficulties to the cinema
