on my part-irement in 2005 I downsized my home and had to part with some old friends from my storage - an RM380Z and a 'portable' Amstrad PPC 640 (my right shoulder has never recovered from that 6kg weight!!). Throwing out the 5 1/4" discs I felt like I was committing a sacrilege, but in spite of advertising no-one wanted to give them a home (not even local museum!).

I have fond memories too of the 8-inch floppies. Whirr Whirr Click Clunk!! Memories of Wordstar surface at this point - oh happy days!
