    How many floppy disks did/do you own?

    Having been a big collector of Amiga software back in the Amiga days, collecting everything from games, demos, PD, shareware, applications, utilities and coverdisks I amassed a huge collection of Amiga floppy disks over the years.

    I've also obtained a lot more since by being given other peoples complete Amiga collections. This included a friend who hadn't used his A500+ for years and just gave it to me with a few disk boxes containing around 300 disks full of games and other software. Another was a huge collection of disks I got with my A4000 which I bought from a friend at university.

    In total (I haven't counted them all) I estimate I have at least 3000 floppy disks!

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    That is a lot. I used to have about 300 disks, which I overwrote regularly. Then again some were sold, and finally I sold everything together with my amiga.

    When I bought an amiga again, it came with 100-120 disks, which I still have, and those were all Fish disks.

    It definitely is a lot and I am constantly trying to find ways to store all of the disk boxes. It is a losing battle!

    That is one constant worry I have had to live with for many years now. One day I will find myself waking inside a disk box and not be able to find my way out. It haunts me to the extent of night terrors.

    This is quite a serious condition. It's called:

    Myobsessionitis. It is quite common, but commonly misdiagnosed. You must seek immediate medical attention

    I have the feeling many of us could be suffering from this condition. Do we need help? or is this forum really out support network?

    Just think of poor DC. He must stay awake most nights with the worry that his console collection will one day eat him alive!
