I've been meaning to check a few disk boxes of 800K floppies but I don't need any more clutter, so I was hoping I could buy someone dinner or something and copy my old floppies to 1.44MB ones before they die or I do. There's probably nothing of much importance on them, maybe old school papers or emails or games, so I never got around to it (in the last 20 years), but I'd like to convert them to virtual disks for some incredibly bored future historians to sift through. I'm in Gwinnett county. It looks like I have 4 disk boxes, so about 50 disks, and I still have 1 or 2 disk boxes with Mac formatted 1.44MB left too. You could also have the disks when I'm done; I've been throwing away garbage bags full of old cassttes and floppy disks. Scary that all of those won't really fill one DVD-R.
