The Whole Internet On a Floppy Disk

Haven’t times changed, while we enjoy the luxury of having all of our computers interconnected through the web and all our files stored in a central location available for access by each individual device, let us go back a few decades and reminisc about how the internet was like back then.

It seems that it was possible to download the WHOLE internet onto a floppy disc, something if you tried to do today would take a total of 4000 years using your standard home internet connection.

Or is this really the case? This has been sweeping across the blogosphere for a while now, and I’m here to debunk this myth. This is in fact a very good photoshop.

The tell tale signs? well the ©2005 is the biggest give-away, that suggests that the disc was produced in 2005, a time when floppy discs were on their way out and floppy drives certainly certainly weren’t available on laptops.

The other sign obviously is that for the internet to fit onto a floppy disc it would need to be in the 1970′s era when the internet was in earlier research stages and only a handful of computers were connected.

    Haha, that’s really funny because I saw another blog just a second ago where they featured this, and they were claiming it was completely legitimate
