    Current favorites: IBM 5160 (EGA+Hercules+PGC, 8 floppy drives, XT-IDE), DCC D-116 (Nova 1200 clone), ASR 33 Teletype (now FULLY armed and operational! Mostly.)
    Wishlist: IBM 5161 (expansion chassis), Diablo 31/RK02/RK05 or equivalent, Data General equipment, and the meaning of life.

    This is, as far as they know, the last of their stock.

    I'd been selling them for $10/box of 10. Thinking I'll sell them for $5/box of 10 ($250 for a full case) at VCF Midwest.

    Did Athana really announce last call on floppy disks? If so, where did you see that or did you just get lucky?

    Athana recently sold their business to floppydisk.com and last time I talked with them, it sounded like they were just running on existing stock. Some stuff they apparently still have a lot of, but according to them I bought their very last box of 8" single-sided soft sectored media. I forget if that was early this year or late last year.
