from a personal computer point of view there there only 3 sizes of floppy disk in common use: 8", 5.25" and 3.5". smaller sized floppy disks emerged late in the game which got used for things like music players and cameras. but these formats never found a foot hold in computing. almost everything about a floppy disk is the same no matter how large they were. disks use physical detections for practically everything: read/write capable, track zero detection, and sometimes sector position. 3.5" drives had density detectors. this meant the the floppy inside the drive define how it was read. you can see how easily a drive could become "out of alignment" making media impossible to read in other drives.

messaging has been powered with everything: smoke, light, drums, pigeon, horse, person, bottle just to name a few of the contraptions used over the centuries. electricity is the most recent change to this. it's what put guys riding on horseback out of business 150 years ago

you can learn the mechanical by taking a class or reading books and manuals. but we've found the best way to learn is to just use the NLE. don't be daunted by the insane interface and the thousands of keyboard commands. eventually it won't look like it makes sense. and don't try to learn all the command keys all at once. instead learn them over time so you will pick up things that work for you. here's four keys you need to know to start things off: ABMN. A is the pointer, B is the Razor, M adds a marker, N is turns Snapping on and off.
