Indeed, I couldn't even tell you. I *do* know where the write *enable*
notch is, however.
I can't ever recall hearing anyone ever calling the plastic ring on
open-reel mag tape a "write-protect" ring.
I've sometimes wondered how many 5.25" diskettes got inadvertently
clobbered because of the reversal of the sense of the notch.
