Saddest thing I've ever seen on an architect's website

Construction document details for students, young professional draftsman, designers and Architects. 100MB zip Disk containing Construction Document notes, schedules, details consisting of hundreds of man hours. For students or new graduates, detail disk cost $250.00 .
Really, "zip Disk"?  Dude, it's 2013!  When's the last time you updated your website?

Oh, so it is up to date.  Even worse.  

When's the last time anyone used a zip disk?  100MB.  That's one Revit file.  Anyone still have a zip drive?  How many of you kids out there have never even heard of one?

I found one of those 250 mB ones a few weeks ago at home while cleaning out stuff. Makes you nostalgic but not enough to use it!!!

Hey, don't be hating on zip drives, man! I'll hit you in the head with my super dot matrix printer!

My Syquest 44 & 88 drives predate your Zip drives. My first zip was a scsi interface too :)
