Anything I should watch out for in shipping floppies by mail to avoid demagnetization?


@misty i think technically there's a chance they can be x-rayed, but at least for film i think it either isn't a problem or so infrequent that nobody bothers. no idea if x-rays can affect floppies

@_ Oh fantastic! That’s pretty definitive

@_ @misty it is a problem but it’s pretty rare yeah. xrayed film gets foggy and unusable, but it’d really rare that it does get xrayed
