This is rather what I suspected.  I'm looking for any advice on 
preserving what is still readable and transferring it to CD.  I've 
never messed with a TI with floppies, and have only powered on one of 
my TI's once or twice.

I did some googling tonight and see some floppies have been archived, 
but I suspect we have a *LOT* more than what I was able to turn up on 
the web.
