Hmm. I had a number of second-hand floppies with what looked like it might be
interesting stuff on them; I was planning on reading them, seeing if it was
worth uploading, and then re-using the floppies.

Unfortunately, dipping into one box of them, there are a lot of Verbatim and
Memorex in there. Am I wasting my time even trying to read them to get the
bits off, or what?

Also, other brands I see that weren't listed above - Maxell and HP. Good/bad?
