It's clearly some program he invented that made him enough money to buy those bad ass glasses, sweater vest, and tie.

Remember when it was awesome that a disk could hold 1.4MBs? Ha.

Re: Why is This Man Holding a Computer Disc?

Wow, about 5 years ago I saw that photo with the exact same question to debate.




My theory: The contents of that disk, a program that took him years to complete...was the ticket to his success and the means to buy those snappy clothes. He's one of those nerds who end up ruling part of the world.


18 years later, the disk is found...

Re: Why is This Man Holding a Computer Disc?

So how long until we have a similar thread in regard to the CD and the DVD? Probably not long.

Re: Why is This Man Holding a Computer Disc?

I don't know, that seems to be a somewhat more reliable media, although the storage capacity of a CD-ROM has become inadequate...but DVD-Rs are still a good option and now there are dual-layer DVDs with over 8 GB of space on them. They could hang around a bit longer than floppies did. They're still good for archival purposes as long as you use good quality discs that won't break down over 10-20 years like the cheap ones can.

Wow.

CD you could start today, I have an 07 4Runner and I have never once used the CD player in the 3 years I have owned it.

Blu Ray will keep DVD's alive a little longer but with the advent of downloading and streaming it is only a matter of time.

Same here, I think I'm on my 2nd car where I haven't touched the CD player. I don't even own any CDs anymore.

Re: Why is This Man Holding a Computer Disc?

That's surprising.

I am a computer geek I suppose, I build them and repair them...do things most people can't, but I have not fully left CDs behind for downloadable music. I like having the actual CD I can hold, the booklet, etc. Also, it's too easy to delete or lose music files as opposed to losing a tangible product you can hold. If I pay $15 for an album, I want something more than a file.

While being technologically-advanced and up-to-date in most parts of my life, I'm old-fashioned I guess in other ways. That's one of them. Also, I hope I never see books replaced by e-books in my lifetime...and I believe there are enough people like me to keep the publishing industry afloat. I prefer old razors to new ones. I like building furniture whenever I can. I carry a pocket watch instead of looking for the time on a cellphone. When I'm able to, I want to get an old muscle car to restore.

There is something enriching about holding onto some traditions, it keeps your life from being a bore from having everything electronic and existing only on your hard drive. In today's busy world, sometimes it is nice and beneficial to slow down. Newer doesn't always mean better to me.

Oh one good thing about my CD player in my car is when you hit the eject button when no disk is inside it will first read on the display "NO" then "DISK".

So if my wife ask me to go somewhere or do something I don't want to while in the car I hit the eject button and she see's "NO", LOL I think it is funny she hates it.
