Um. I'm probably a bit worse than that (depending on your point of view) -
I've never seen an 8" floppy disc and I've never even seen - let alone
used - a papertape reader/punch. Seeing as it was more-or-less the only
reasonably-priced data storage format available at the time the 6502 was
released, I thought it would only be fair to let the 6502 have some form of
papertape storage. Guess I'm stuck with 3.5" floppy disks though :(
