Yes, alas....

Floppies are too cheap!. I can remember paying \pounds 3.00 for a 5.25"
disk. The thing is, that I can still read the data I stored on said disk.
I'd _love_ to be able to pay that sort of amount again, with the
assurance that my data would be readable (I can assure you that my data
is worth a lot more than 3 quid!)
