Old Floppy Disks

  Phate 14:45 27 Jun 2004

I seem to be in possession of about 100 (!) floppy disks that are currently of very little use, and was wondering if anybody had any ideas as to what to do with them?

Send them to me, I use them all the time, loading norton ghost, disk managers and various tools, still very convenient.

Plenty of uses for floppy discs. As jimv7 says, send them to me. I have plenty of uses for them.

I'll second (or should it be third) that. Call me old fashioned, but I wouldn't buy a PC that didn't have a floppy drive

Could always tile your kitchen with them !!

If they are the old fashion large ones, send them to Nasa, as they have put out a worldwide call for them.

Post to them to your neighbours as a free gift.

I can't remember the last time we used one, and in any case only one of our machines still has a floppy drive. some of the disks are dated 1990, but I can't bring myself to throw them out.
