There is an infinitesimal chance that c1581's non-standard GAP's
cause this. You see, after each sector header and sector data
block there is a sector GAP, which is filled with valid MFM.
Normally it is 101010.. or 010101..., but because it seemed so
cool, I had c1581 put my name and URL there.. I wonder if anyone
would've noticed if I hadn't said anything. :-)

You could store some real info, but the 1581 couldn't normally
read them anyway..
