If you have a very large pile of duff disks, or you are from FAST or ELSPA and you have a lot of pirate disks, do not destroy them! Recycle them my good
friend, and you may even get some money for your troubles. Here are a few tips on what to do with those annoying duff disks...
NUMBER 1 : A KEYRING
Yes, you can have
a very fashionable (don't snigger) keyring at a price you
can afford. Simply place a keyring loop through the write
protect hole. Jazz it up by applying paint.
NUMBER 2 : APRIL FOOL'S CREAM CRACKERS
Apply tonnes of
butter and tonnes of cheese for that authentic cream
cracker look. Great for annoying cousins etc... For the
really authentic look, place in a toaster for a few
minutes to give a brown texture.
NUMBER 3 : A PLACE MAT
Fed up with tea
stains on your modern worktop? Stop those stains with a
duff disk. Only 40p from your local computer shop. (Perhaps.)
NUMBER 4 : WINDOW SCRAPER
An icy morning and
you cannot see out of your car window. Use a duff disk to
scrape the ice away! A much cheaper alternative to the
humble Credit Card. Also complete with keyring attachment.
NUMBER 5 : A PATCHWORK BLANKET
Drill holes on
each side of a disk, and simply tie them together using
string. Use this method for various fashion (don't
snigger) clothes. Be the first person to own a disk vest!
NUMBER 6 : MAKING OTHER COMPUTER FRIENDS
Yes, create a
really wicked virus (don't call it HHome virus - it's
copyrighted & you could get sued for millions of
pounds!) and give it to a mate with a PC. You will have
loads of friends (Oh, I'm being sarcastic!)
NUMBER 7 : SELL THEM ON A CAR-BOOT SALE
Pretend you are a
computer pirate, and write some top software names onto
the label. Sell them for £1 each, and leggit! (With the
money of course!)
NUMBER 8 : SUPER DELUXE LUGGAGE TAGS
Similar to the
Keyring idea, but writing your name, address & flight
number on them in felt tip. You can then rub it off later
and use them for another trip. Ingenious or what?
NUMBER 9 : NOVELTY FRIZBEE (OR HOWEVER YOU SPELL IT)
The ultimate kids
toy. Bintendo carts can't fly half as well as PC disks.
The ultimate Frizbee has to be the old BBC 5.25"
NUMBER 10 : SHARPEN THE EDGES, AND USE AS A VERY DANGEROUS WEAPON
Not advisable for anyone under 24 months of age!
NUMBER 11 : MAKE DISK PYRAMIDS
replacement for the traditional playing cards, comes
complete with sticky labels, so you can cheat!
