I got a call from Lucy Frost of Granite House (a video production company) 
in Austin just now.  She's desperately in need of a 5.25" or 8" floppy 
disk for a video shoot they are doing tonight.  They are doing a spoof 
infomercial for a client around the Btrieve software product.  Yes, that's still being published by a company called Pervasive 

Anyway, if you can help (Jim Battle?) then please contact her directly:

She tells me they Buda to Roundrock is her vicinity.  She knows about the 
Goodwill Computer Works and is going to try calling them today to see if 
they can help.  I also suggested she try other local thrift stores in the 
area as they normally have some 5.25" floppies in the electronics section.  
I don't believe there is any preference for either size format.  They 
just need one and need one now.  They had a 5.25" floppy ready for the 
shoot but it's been misplaced.

Someone please help Lucy.
