Quite possibly :) Come to Bulgaria one day, breath in slowly, have a 
good look around you,

chant "misfit toys" to yourself several times, and then . . .

But, I digress.

-----------------------------

When I lived and worked in the UAE I needed something to back up work I 
was doing on my
Performa 5270CD  and my G3 Beige box, and the ONLY thing that was 
available in the one Apple shop
in the country (in Dubai; a 2 hour drive from Al Ain) was a SCSI IOmega 
zip drive.

I still have that zip drive and 20 zip disks with all the stuff I backed 
up in Al Ain. I connected it via a SCSI PCI
card to my Linux box, and then transferred the file via a Flash drive to 
my G3 iMac running Mac OS 9.

I also found a back up of about 2 years' worth of academic work my wife 
thought she had lost 12 years ago; so a very good thing I hung onto the 
thing and the disks.
----------------------------

I don't know why there seems to be so much flack about IOmega Zip; I 
have worked with ZIP disks, and
used them to restore various "old but gold" Apple computers for 
financially strapped pensioners with
absolutely no problems at all for about 15 years.

At one time, in the UAE, I used an IOmega JAZ drive and disks to cart 
work back and forth between
home and work. The only unfunny thing was that I had to work with 
Toolbook, which is not nearly as
good as Livecode.
