Hah, thanks for this...we're not adding super old drives, mostly because there aren't many people to add to the database. Is that thing still spinning?

Yep, it's still spinning, and still only at 3600 RPM. Works great. No bad sectors. I have MS-DOS 7.10 installed on it. It's too bad that you're not adding it though...

Still has better seek times than a optical drive!

And better than a Miniscribe 3650 (which I'm also assuming won't be added). I hear those were awful.
