So there

I hate that my old files are all on floppy disks. I didn't like floppies when I was using Windows (for that matter, I didn't much like Windows either), but they were the most useful way to switch around between computers that might or might not have internet or CD-writing drives. Now I just hate having all my old stuff on them. I don't want to go to the bother of going down to the lab to see if maybe something I wrote a couple of years ago might be helpful, and I don't want to go to the bother of transferring all my stuff to my iBook (which is why I haven't done it yet).

I eventually got all my old stuff archived onto read-only CDs. That has worked fine, since I can always copy the files onto my iBook if I want to revise them for any reason.

I wonder if a Kinko's (or somebody) might be willing to transfer the stuff onto a CD for you.

This leaves aside the issue of backing up or transferring currently-active files, of course.
