    Re: New 'side project'

    Reminds me of life after my first layoff, back around 1973.

    I knew I had way too much time on my hands, when I found myself dusting and waxing the water heater.

    Re: 5.5 floppy drive

    Paul - that's the system I used. A couple caveats: the controller only works on a TEAC 360/1.2meg drive. The Windows software supplied is a bit "challenging" to use.

    Any questions, just PM me. ...

    Paul - if you desperately need to remove Edge: click Start, then when the program list pops up, go to Microsoft Edge. Right click and choose uninstall.
