INARA Wing: The Silverbacks

Do you remember, and used, 5 1/4 floppy disks? Do you remember when The Tandy Corporation wasn't just a leather goods company? Do you remember renting games at the video store and if they didn't have the instruction manual, you were out of luck figuring out what the game's story was about? Did you stand in line for the original Star Wars movie in 1977... before it was labelled as Episode IV? Did you order Pong from the Sears catalog for Christmas? Did you waste endless hours on your new Atari 2600 the day it was released? Did you stack quarters on Ms Pacman at the arcade to show your place in line? Did you watch the Planet of the Apes TV series when it originally aired?

If so, then you're a Silverback. Welcome home.

5 1/4 floppy disks? Too small to be of any use. They'll never catch on. 8 inchers are the way to go.

All are welcome. As the About Us states, just don't act like a dingus and all is well.
