Now you can access all the information in the Museum about floppy disks, from a floppy disk!
The entries on 30 types of floppy disk, along with small images, have been coded to fit onto a standard 1.44 MB 3.5-inch floppy disk.
Simply download the Floppy Disk Museum in Zip format, extract to a floppy disk (this may take a while), open index.htm, and off you go! All links on the Floppy Disk Museum point to pages within the microsite, so the entire site can be viewed offline. If you don’t have a floppy disk, you can extract the files to any location.
This is a bit of an experimental project, so any feedback is appreciated.
The HTML is simple, and the microsite should work on most modern browsers but has only been tested on Internet Explorer 11, Chrome and Edge. It does contain a small amount of CSS so may not work on early browsers.
