When I bought my 44 MB first Syquest I budgeted for 5 cartridges, and used
it quite a bit, initially for backups, and later on as just a handy
portable scsi boot device. Once I had a bootable CD that kind of fell off,
but recently I bought a EZ230 and a 270 MB drive, and those I expect to put
some usefull things on (small projects like a NETBsd firewall to copy to
internal drives).

Sometimes a network connection, even old slow LocalTalk is the most
convient thing to use. SCSI has fussy issues it isn't worth sorting out.
