Here is a preview of a more in-depth report on the Exatron Stringy Floppy


The stingy floppy was introduced in April 1979 at the Computer Faire in San Francisco USA.

The order form for the purchase of a stringy floppy includes a field to select the drive software for either the TRS 80, SWTP or S-100. I have a typed copy of the s-100 assembler, but it's for the Cromeco.

The "nose" protrudes 1/2 inch from the drive. The dimensions of the hole from which the nose protrudes is 3" wide x 1" tall

The Stringy Floppy Wafers are 2 11/16" x 1 9/16" (must be metric).

Most of the documentation refers to the TRS 80 with Level II BASIC, except for the Cromeco assembler.
