You just missed a carton of 10 boxes (100 diskettes total) of 32-sector 8"
diskettes yesterday.  Maxell, NOS still shrink wrapped.

I was not aware that there were 16-sector 8" diskettes; I've never seen
them.  But I have seen (very rarely) the ones with the holes around the
outside edge of the diskette.

Hi Dave
I've seen 16 sectored 8 inch disk. I'm had been looking
for good deals on 32 hard sectored 8 inch disk for my Nicolet
computer ( I have enough disk now ) and came across
a 16 hard sectored one. There was also a hard sectored
one with the holes around the outside of the disk. I have
a friend that has a machien that uses these. I don't recall
how many holes it has.
