Anybody still have a use for 3.5" floppies? I have a shitload of them, and they're going in the trash unless you want them.

When you go to the Cambridge Election commission to get the voter registration list it comes on a floppy. I still have one computer with a floppy drive.

I just gathered together all my 3.5s together so I can burn them onto CD before the end of the week, and then I'm going to toss them all. So much for a technilogical epoch...

I've refound some cool games like the original Tie Fighter, Wing Commander I, Star Control I and II, and the original Unreal, Graviton and Scorched Earth. Wow... that explains my grades sophomore and junior years ;-).

If you do get rid of them make sure you destroy them before tossing. I'm sure that your computer is as pure as the driven snow, but you may have financial data or some other stuff that you wouldn't want others to see hanging around on them, and the material can usually be recovered even if you've wiped the floppy. I tossed out about 50 recently and I broke them all up and snipped the platter in half before I tossed them.

I can go one better than you. Do you want a 5.25 disk drive?

I didn't even bother to ask with that one. I just chucked the 5¼ floppies.
