I saw the ones listed on eBay. Seems kinda silly to order one to read
one floppy and most likely never use it again. Sigh ..
I asked the Records Manager what provision the city had for reading
older floppies. We'll see where that gets me.

Re: Where the heck ...?

No luck here, Lindsey; part of them wouldn't even spin up, and none would
even recognize a disc was in the drive....
Oh well, another bin cleaned out......
Sorry....

Not really. Prolly cost us more to ship to and stuff, and I would need the cable
as well, and once I did get the info off the disk, It all gooes bye bye. Prolly
better I send the diskette to someone and have them send me back the info.
