Cut Down to Size

Hello, tech support.

Hi, I sure hope you can help me. I just got one of your new computers and I'm having trouble loading the programs from my old computer in it.

Well, that shouldn't be too big of a problem.

I didn't think it would be. Except the disks for my old programs were too big to fit in the new computer.

You mean they were on five and a quarter inch disks.

I'm not sure how big they were. But one is stuck in the new computer now.

You didn't fold it did you?

Of course not!

Believe it or not, we've actually had some people do that.

That's funny. No, I trimmed them to fit and used some black tape around the edges.

You're kidding, right.

No. That's why I'm calling. I can't get them to work.
