243 discs! Wow, your were busy.
All my old C64 code is on tape. What are chances they’re still readable? Looks like a visit to my parent’s attic is on the cards next time I’m home.
My brother recently bought one of these, http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00308CBSS. Seems happy enough with it. It’s sitting next to him in his office and he hasn’t complained about the noise so it can’t be too bad.
