Chuck,

You have not lived if you have not had the *dubious_pleasure* of loading a
S/34 or S/38 from diskette....A release upgrade was a weekend event
literally!  The 10 diskette magazines were a real step up from individual
diskettes!  You could get two of those in for a total of 20 diskettes.  :-)
If I remember correctly, Release 8 of CPF was over 100 diskettes!

Regards,

Mike Shaw
