Floppy Drive Power Update

Well, I ran a test on the power supply for the floppy drive today, and I found
that you can get about 10 minutes of continuous drive use (the drive is always
running) out of the batteries. That isn't all that great, but the printer
port is active LONG after the drive can't be run anymore. I'm going to look
for a better battery supply, but right now, at least AA's are a common
type, and they're small.
