There may, however, come a day when there isn't much choice...

I looked on Amazon.co.uk for "floppy disc 5.25" and I got no floppies, 
but I did have "Apec Pair Rear Brake Discs - Ford Mondeo - 2.5 - 
10/2000-3/2007 - 280mm Solid". Remembering somebody who couldn't list 
little glass animals on Amazon, I'm wondering WTF Mondeo brake discs are 
doing there!
There are only HD 3.5" floppies on Amazon.

www.grosbill.com [French] don't even list floppies. At all.

www.pearl.fr lists three 3.5" floppy drives [internal, USB, 
internal-with-card-reader]. And no blank media. Hmmm...

The best I could find for 5.25 was:
Any guesses on postage costs?

Best wishes,
