ha ha, I wonder how many symbols we currently use actually refer to a real-life object that's long disappeared.

every now and then I get strange looks when I say "Hit return"

"What's return?"

me, "You know, carriage return."

"Where's that on the keyboard?"

me, "FFS! It's the big key on the right, near the numeric keypad!!!"

"You mean enter"

He is showing the label (top) side of the floppy, but the bevelled corner and the window in the metal slider are on the wrong side.

Alternatively, you could say that, based on the corner and the slider, he is showing the bottom of the disk, but drew the label instead of the hub.

Congratulations you've been "rewarded".

Actually what i saw was that the disk is drawn mirrored (and from the label side).
Had to go to the next room (which looks like a hoarders nest) to confirm this by digging up an actual floppy disk.
But your description leads to the same picture drawn.

ha. I looked at it and though 'this looks off'. but I attributed it to simply not having seen a floppy (yeah, I know, that actually refers to something mystical, that I am too young to actually remember...) in a long time.

happy to see that it actually *is* off.

What's a carriage and why would it have to return?

For that matter anyone know what a TAB is?

And CC, why would you "carbon" copy someone?

Yeah all you old timers will know.

On typewriters there was a row of little metal "tabs", one for each character on a line. Mostly they were in a low position but if you raised one (with a special key IIRC) it would block the "carriage" from moving.

Pressing TAB would allow the carriage to free run to the left until it physically hit one of these raised tabs at which point it stopped and you resumed typing at a given column.

the carriage of a typewriter needs to return back to the left plus move roller up to a new line.

For that matter anyone know what a TAB is?
above...

And CC, why would you "carbon" copy someone?
a copy of a letter, now even further changed to "hard" copy for physical, and "soft" copy for 'file on your disk' version.
carbon (paper) was the method with which a copy was made, as you wrote the letter.
