Zippedy doo-da

I was in the charity shop again today and found I'd got the prices wrong, the zip drive was £6 including 5 disks - 2 100mb and 3 250gb. So I've bought it in case I ever need to recover data from that sort of disk - it'll probably never happen, but I've got a floppy drive for the same reason and I don't begrudge the money I paid for that. Tried writing a file to it and it was painfully slow - about 1mb/second but it works OK and while I may never use it, I'd feel really stupid if I did need it and hadn't bought it.
