   I missed this first time around.

   Of 20 or 30 CF cards I've used, only one was bad out of the box, and 
I think a flaky connection killed that one.

   Of the last 100-count tray of floppies I bought, at least 15 didn't 
survive the first format, and another dozen or so didn't live through 
the second overwrite.

   That's my math and I'm sticking to it.
