I have a network of machines and only about 1/4 have floppies. If I need access to a floppy on a machine that does not have one, I simply share another machines floppy. The process is a reasonable compromise, that works and allows an extra bay when needed. The bay shortage seems to be more and more prevalent with modern non-expandable boxes that seem to be everywhere now.
You knew him and loved him as JamesW, the spelling nut and occasional FAQ-writer. Now he's back, slightly shorter (name-wise, but in reality still the same imposing stature) and no better than he was before - Ladies and gentlemen, I give you : James!
Oh come now, surely there wouldn't be an actual Tumbleweed in the bar?! *grumble*
A computer without a floppy drive is like a car without a spare tire. Sure, you hope you don't have to use the damn thing very often, but I wouldn't dream of not having one. In the workshop, building and fixing machines eight hours a day as we do, they are utterly indispensible.
That might be a matter for some controversy, but on the other hand,there is no doubt whatever that a forum without Will and James in it would be a poorer place. Welcome guys.
