i'd first check with friends to see who has a ZIP drive... check with 
geeks... check with programmers and graphic designers who were in 
school 15 years ago... check with a friend who works for a college or 
a large IT department...

many orgs (like mine) dropped money on a USB ZIP so that we could 
pass it around internally and sometimes help a client rescue old data 
by bringing it on-site...

if that doesn't work, buy the refurb and install it in a friend's 
machine without telling...
