They DID ship them. Just received notice of shipment.

You know, the postage from Garland, Texas to LA, CA for a box of 88 floppies would
have been more than $6.95. How much more, I don't know. 
Could they have made a loss on that transaction, hence the price bump?

Can anyone estimate the likely US postage for that package? Please let me know.
If BG Micro are badly out on that transaction, I'll contact them and make it up to them.
Would not if it was some big corp, but BG Micro are clearly honest. Such a rarity.

Funny, I was thinking of Diogenes and his lantern just the other day.
