Remember when floppy disks could save/destroy the world?
1MB was a dangerous thing
Science side of tumblr here. 1,44 MB can hold lots of compiled viruses (implying they’re around ~100-150 KB executable files. Because why would they need to be bigger?). A CIH.1103/1019 assembler virus, which fucking wrecked around 60 million motherboards in 1998-2000, beyond any repairs, was only, if I remember correctly, 91 KB in size.
So yeah, maybe not destroying/saving the world, but a 1MB of space is pretty much capable of wrecking shit and havoc.

No, that’s okay. I definitely needed to cry over a comic today. That is fine.
oooh I am crying right now
I got to the bottom and actually made a dumb vocalized “oh” noise and teared up. Jfc. Good comic.
