I went around all the local places that I could think of a couple of years
ago and bought up whatever stock of floppies that I could find (and picking
sure were slim). Quite a few boxes of 3.5" HD, a few boxes of 5.25" DD, but
zero 3.5" DD and 5.25" HD.
3.5" HD media just killed off the use of 3.5" DD and 5.25" HD, I suppose.
I'm not sure what the reason for my finding a few boxes of 5.25" DD was,
though - perhaps it was just produced in sufficient volume for there to
still be a few survivors kicking around.
I've never had any luck finding used disks anywhere locally; people are a
bit too concerned about data theft these days, and all of that seems to go
straight to landfill.
