Real Memories and Fake Stories

A memory/factoid bubbled up out of the recesses of my brain. With my trusty Apple //e, you could take floppy disks that were allegedly single-sided and then, with skillful use of a hole-punch, you could make a matching un-write-protect notch on the other side of the disk and use it as a double-sided disk. It was like writing on both sides of a piece of paper! Why pay more for double-sided disks?
That's how I stuck it to the man back in the day. That and using programs to illegally copy games.

And I wore an onion on my belt, as was the fashion at the time.


And now a meme:

Tell me about a story I haven’t written, and I’ll give you one sentence from that story.
