    any computer tech/builder/tinkerer worth their salt is going to own one for quite some time to come.

    I have one in each of the computers around here.
    Will continue putting them into computers I build.

    I have about 12 of them. I only realized last night how many i have. One in my SO's computer, one in my sgi540-to-pc mod, one that is _supposed_ to be in my current system (not connected, but still used to load the raid drivers in case I need to reload windows). I even have a scsi floppy for some of my old sgi systems. I only recently threw away 2x 5 1/2" floppy drives, still in working condition (let see you try and buy media for that drive).

    I am in the process of purging stuff, that is how I know how many I have...

    I have a few scattered about. I don't use them since I converted all my boot programs to CD.
