I've got a load of 720k disks from a dumpster-diving evening (woowoo, I
also got a clock :) ). Yours for shipping. I'd guess somewhere around
50-100 of them, though I haven't really seperated them from the 1.44
ones... I almost never use disks except to boot OSs and install them, so I
have them all in a box in the corner of my basement... I tend to make a
pile of 720k disks when I find them.
