  1. What’s up with the floppy disk? Low budget movie?

  2. Freakin’ Brilliant.

  3. mellowman: Hackers was made in ’95. Floppy was were it was at!

  4. Do not diss the 3.5 inch floppies. I have TONS of fond memories involving installation of games requiring a stack of 40+ floppies :).

    Does anyone actually remember this movie? I recall that it was made before the wide adoption of instant messaging. It was back when I was still using a dial-up modem which clogged my phone line for hours, connecting with friends to play Doom over direct IP. I remember hating it when it came out because Hollywood was capitalizing once again on the ignorance of the masses, playing on the public’s fears of “cyberspace” which was the term used by non-technical writers to describe anything and everything involving computers. If I were to watch the movie now I’d probably enjoy it though.

    This post also immediately reminded me of this site:

    Back in the day there was the cheesy pickup-line. “Hey baby, you make my *** inch floppy disk hard.”

    You could substitute *** for 3.5, or 5 1/4 depending on how awkward and funny you wanted to make it sound…

  6. @DanH: I know that ‘Hackers’ is an old movie. I was obviously kidding about the floppy disk since is says ‘Shaqers is a 2010 thriller’.

    @Adrian: I still have a copy of Shaq-Fu for the SNES. Granted I haven’t played it in a while because my SNES is catching dust in the basement now. But I really enjoyed that game back in the day.

  7. Huh… Shaq and Angelina Jolie kinda have the same lips… Creepy…

    Nice job “Gaylord”
