Default Anyone have a USB Floppy drive?

Does anyone have a USB floppy drive I could use at fest? I left mine at work and won't have time to grab it in the morning.

Ya, I know, old technology....

I'll grab a floppy drive for my laptop and I have a USB stick to transfer data if needed as well.

I also have both floppy and stick capacity and I'm here. If the others don't work for you I'm willing to try. I have a spare floppy disk and also a nearly empty 512k stick for transfer from my PC to yours.

If the change from floppy to stick required only a purple pill I'd have upgraded years ago!
How sad is it that I used tape drives (both reel to reel and the more convienient 'Phillips' cassette form) in the days before the 5 1/4 inch 'mini' floppy came the media of choice even before the 3 1/2 inch 'micro' floppy? The highschool to which I went had not just one, but THREE computers to which the students had access. We saved our programs on inch wide punch tape on those.
