I have a few boxes piled up in my room, that I've never actually got round to unpacking from when I moved in here last September. Sometimes I think about just chucking them out, on the grounds that if I haven't needed anything in the last year, it can't be that important. But, I've been making an effort to go through them item by item, which does pay off.

Case in point, had a look through one box yesterday. Found a bunch of old 5.25" floppy disks, that I bought in 1992 (just after I went to Durham) - never used them before, never likely to use them again, so I binned them. However, the same box also had my passport in it - haven't used that since I came here, but it's a useful thing to hang onto! So, relocated that to my briefcase, as a slightly more sensible place to keep it/find it.

Aside from that, I've now gone back far enough to find AOL floppies (they predate CDs)...
