If it's just pictures upload them to one of the 253478569283475693 image hosting site then download them on the new comp. No need to get fancy.

Even if they're not on the same network you should be able to use a crossover cable and do a peer-to-peer connection. Of course this won't work if both computers aren't in the same vicinity.

Hahaha. Now that's old school. I wonder if a parallel connection would work. The old direct cable connection. IDK if that is still supported or not.

No, floppy disks with spanning software is old school... we used to do that crap back in the mid-ninties before we set up our first LAN. That was also back when files were measured in KB instead of GB.

Oddly enough a coworker of mine had to get my help using spanning software yesterday. Probably had to email something giant.

If you didn't use a floppy disk, I don't want to hear about it.

Besides,that's what they make FTP sites for. :D

Jesus, that was a nightmare. Half the time you'd try to restore from the set of disks and one would screw up on you.

Yep... and do you remember the first CD writers? It would take like 2 hours to write a disc and 3 out of 4 would bomb 2/3 of the way into writing them. Those were the days...

Yep!

Worse yet...I have CDs that are close to 10 years old that get all kinds of read errors when I try to get files off them. So much for CDs/DVDs being good archival media. I think I'd rather put files on a hard drive. One where you'd only write to it until it was full. No writing and deleting over and over. Write only when (not connected to a pc).
