Yeah. I think there's one 4gb drive; the rest are the Barracudas and a couple
miscellaneous 1gb drives.

I can go back to the Z80 days by digging around in my basement... that TRS-80
I shipped you wasn't my only Z80 box. And if I really wanted to, I could
one in a jiffy, even with my poor skills. I still have my 8" floppy drives
plenty of copies of CP/M and related documentation. I think I sent you my
WD controller board, though, for the hard drives... though come to think of
it, I think I junked all my MFM drives a few months ago. Ah well, I don't
time to do all that, either.

I still have that ESDI drive and controller, but that's for a PC with ISA.
