Take some bits out of the one you have :-)

Does that mean the website is back up?

Anyway, I've always had trouble with teledisk and it is
an undocumented format. When such floppies were sent via
network in DEC they were usually a BACKUP/PHYSICAL of
the floppy. Assuming you have a VAX with an RX50 and
a handy copy of OpenVMS, it might be worth archiving
via this method too. (More than twice the work for you,
but some of us will be very grateful should we ever
stumble across a Pro or two. BTW: usual file extension for
this was .BKP).

Note to self: Must remember to be re-incarnated as someone
with plenty of storage space available :-)
