TFW I can *totally* see myself saying "shut up and take my $95", and checking the mailbox every day to see if my order arrived. I mean... a 5.25" DOUBLE SIDED DOUBLE DENSITY floppy with WDI data in a Lotus 1-2-3 WKS file. I'm tempted to send it in now and see what happens! ๐Ÿ˜

Dear friends! A huge tragedy is going to happen in #Tashkent. Worldwide known Ilkhom Theater could be closed soon. A new owner of the building sent us a notice to shut down the theater. We need your help!
