PERSCI??  IEEEEeeeeee!  Yes, I had one of those.  Yes, it 
sort of worked, maybe it was the crappy floppies I bought, 
but I did buy them new from various media suppliers, like Inmac.
I found it to be relatively flaky, but maybe it was actually 
a crummy floppy controller that would write stuff anywhere.

I eventually got a 10 MB Memorex winchester drive and SASI 
controller in about 1977 or so, and that was a godsend!  It 
was absolutely reliable, I never had corrupted files again.
(Oh, it was faster, too, of course.)  I had this on an S-100
