    Source for MAC-format floppies
    Hey all, just joined today. had to get the message out, if you need floppies for your old mac (I myself, own a classic), you can get them at walmart (10 for $4 or so). they come in the neon colors, but who cares about the color? they work well and you don't need to format PC disks. lol
