I have some 200 3.5, 150 5.25 floppies and some 8 ZIP discs - but no
LS120s. I still have a 5.25 floppy drive and the ZIP drive - all they
need is installation in a box.
While I transferred the data from the ZIP and 5.25 discs ages ago to
either 3.5 or mainly to HD (> CD), I still have some 50 3.5 discs with
data on them - including the full installation of (?)W95 :-) .
And I still have on vinyl Herbie Mann, Pink Floyd, WAR, Santana, Barry
White, Hot August Night (Neil Diamond), the only LP released by Billy
