Just a sanity check (on _my_ sanity, in case you're wondering :-):

Is this a message that's been hanging on some mailhost since 17 June,
or did you not set your date correct after the "year 2018" problem?

Did you supply the device with the correct capacity? Due to some
obscure reason, _all_ floppies on Alpha's are detected as 2.88MB,
which will cause the default device to go wrong while formatting.
Use /dev/fd0h1440 as argument to superformat, not just /dev/fd0.
