5.25in. Floppies

My IBM PC Server 320 has a 1.2mb floppy, my Pentium III-750 has a 1.2mb
floppy drive, etc. I have boxes full of DSDD and DSHD floppies, most with
old archives that have been stored since the days of SEA's ARC program
(before they started in with Phil Katz about his "infringements").

The only odd thing is when the "normal" users have these around. I had a box
of 8" on the shelf and of course everyone that comes to the shop HAS to ask
what the heck they are.

  Is it just me, or is there something not-so-subtly ironic and
gratifying about a 450mHz desktop with a working 5.25 floppy drive
installed? Not to mention the fact that I "just happened to have"
enough new DS/HD floppies (~60) for this entire floopy-based (sic)
  And, am I the only one who forgets just what a PITA it is to handle
lots of them?
