It's round and wobbles, but madam, it's a mouse pad, not a floppy disk

I remember archiving my thesis onto 15 3.5" floppies in 1991. I don't think those discs have been back in a drive since. To be honest, I'm not even sure I could find the discs now.

As for punching holes, I remember round about 1980, when I was at school, making an extra cut-out for the index hole on 5.25" 80K single sided discs so that you could flip them over and use the other side.
