Yeah, but you have to keep at least one wheel turning over at the hydro
plant to power them, Bruce. I took the easy way out & moved one of the
1GB Seagate Hawks I had in my amiga to the coco when the amiga's big
drive died, and now have 500megs for os9 and 255 virtual floppies using
hdb-dos. All on 2-3 watts to turn it.
159 Megs? Those would need to be formatted at 2 sectors per cluster as
its about 28 megs over the 1 sector size limit.
People having trouble with vz bouncing email to me should add the word
'online' between the 'verizon', and the dot which bypasses vz's
stupid bounce rules. I do use spamassassin too. :-)
