If you work for a company that makes USB 3.5″ floppy disk drives, like Daniel Olson does, you probably find yourself with a lot of down time. In an effort to make 3.5″ floppies relevant again, Daniel made himself a RAID array out of 5 drives and a USB hub. The array has a usable capacity of about 4 mb, and is able to fill itself in just over 30 seconds. That’s like, uh, 0.13 mbps! Wow!

For his next project, Daniel plans to make a 125 disk array with a capacity of something like 256 mb. I guess he’s keeping ‘em out of a landfill, so that’s a good thing.
