<I keep an 8" floppy disk in the front of my store to amaze people ("Jus
<fold it twice and stick it in your holds a lot!")
<Just how much do (did?) they hold? (I'm sure there were different data
<densities...just a range is all I want!)

standard single sided single density was 128bytes*26 sectors*77 tracks
or 256k.

The high end is double density two sided and around 1mb.
