Hello, little corner of my memory that hasn't been accessed in how many years.

I should go dig out those copies of Home & Office Computing from the mid 1980s and boggle at the ads.
S'quite all right. The fact that it made an impact on you, too, is worthy of note.
The original jacket says Leading Edge, but I believe the floppy disk manufacturing division actually got sold to Dennison Mfg. Company in Framingham, MA around the late 80s/early 90s. I know this because my dad worked there. We skipped town when Dennison underwent a hostile merger (still boggling that one) with Avery Mfg. Inc.
If you can find a pic of the Elephant logo with one of the Dennison stickers, I'll give you a cookie.
Thanks for this, though. I needed it.

I can actually hear my older brother saying "You can play next. Maybe. ...one more guy."
