Dave’s MFM Emulators work well, I remember when I exhibited one at VCF,
while a bit confusing to use, no pretty GUI or anything like that, it does
what it needs to do. I had tested it and duplicated an existing hard drive,
and created several “blank” hard drives over my time with it.

Unfortunately this year, I didn’t get anything vintage related, but I did
get a WiFi controllable power strip that also monitors energy usage.  So
when I hook up my vintage systems, I know how much electricity I actually
used. :-)
