    Some smart phones support floppy drives. Won't meet your needs but might fulfill internet enabled tweener roles for a limited segment.

    Do you mean to tell us that you would sit in a corner and do algebra and calculus rather than play 'Call to Duty'? Sheesh!

    I used to use Teleflip to send SMS right from the computer to any cell phone. It was easy and free. Unfortunately it's no longer available.

    Of course you can send SMS via your computer's email client, as well.
    If you're looking for DS/DD or DS/HD 3" or 5" floppy disks, PM me. I've got some new, used, and factory over-labeled disks for sale.

    So where do my 8" drives plug in?

    I've had a couple of GV numbers since forever. SMS there is pretty good--you can even CC to multiple numbers.
    My VoIP provider also provides a desktop-accessible SMS as well.
    TBird in Windows can do SMS, apparently, but not in Linux.

    Fooling around with functions, differential equations,
    matrix manipulations, etc....is a lot of fun and very intriguing.
    Some of the stuff I haven't done in many years, and the joy of
    re-discovery is too much.

    I think, that is why many of us here get such a kick out of
    computer archaeology,,,,digging into the past....finding out
    the mentality and design philosophy of those who made
    the software/hardware, and why they did it that way.
    That is what is intriguing to me.

    The Japanese also have a simulator that allows playing of old PC98 games on a smartphone.
