 Dumb Filemaker
How dumb is a database that crashes ignobly when it runs out of disk
space when saving?  Ran into that wrinkle today saving to a floppy
disk.  The file didn't fit, FMP put up a "Continue/Exit" requester,
"continue" achieved nothing, so "Exit" it was.

Anyone know of a workaround?

Well, Mark, most of us would probably advise you to just avoid floppy disks! In
this day and age, they're just plain obsolete. If you just gotta, get an
Imation Superdrive, which gives you 120MB on a floppy form factor (although
it's a bit slower than some other removable storage options in this price and
size range, and you do have to use a special disk which is *NOT* readable in a
regular floppy drive).

Other alternatives would be to save to a network drive, your hard drive, or any
of the other fine removable media out there (Zip, Jaz, Syquest, MO, etc.).
