Re: That farmer...

Well i can reveal for you , safely under the cover of the anonymous tickbox , that right now , in 2017 , soon to be 2018 :

There is a part of the NHS in southern Wales that has to regularly transfer pictures to another NHS site in Northern England.

They do this using a 1.4mb 3.5" floppy disk and the Royal Mail - you know , the ones with the red vans and sacks full of paper in envelopes?

It would not surprise me to find out that the copy of the image on the floppy is the only copy - because that's what people who use floppy disks do.
