When did you last see a stiffy?

I couldn't resist this gem at my local CNA today.

Yes, stiffy disk covers/pouches. Considering that I probably last saw a stiffy disk eight to ten years ago, I'm not surprised these items are on sale; down from R80 to R9.95. The only person likely to buy this is probably a... computer historian!

I was wondering whether to tell the store manager that many people using computers these days have probably never encountered stiffy disks so he's going to have a hard time selling this stock. Then I reasoned that he has probably never encountered a stiffy disk so maybe he thinks this is the next big thing to replace DVDs?
