Beware the trainee with time on his hands and an Acorn manual on his desk

NATTtrash

Blown away by the delights of saving to 5 ¼ inch floppy disks (sometimes to both sides)

So help me out here, have trouble recalling (who said something about beards?)

Was it just the 3.5" disks that you could use on both sides when you drilled an extra hole in it, or did that also work for the 5¼? I think I do remember going at 5¼ with a hole puncher, but not sure whether that was constructive or just youthful vandalism...
