So I interviewed for a job yesterday and they wanted to see some samples of my past work. Since I've upgraded several times since I was last doing a lot of freelance work, all my samples were on my old Mac (PowerComputing PowerTower Pro 180), so Thursday morning I dug it out of the closet, hooked it up and crossed my fingers as I pressed the power button on the keyboard. The thing actually booted up right away. I decided I should take the opportunity to back my stuff up, so I copied everything over to the Firewire drive on my current Mac, and I'm glad I did, as one of the drives just crapped out. I'm saddened to report that the original drive from my first Mac, a PowerMac 8100/80 AV, is no longer with us. At ten years of age, He lived a long, profitable life, and he stuck around long enough (even through five years of being in storage) for me to get a back up so I can't complain. RIP, my trusty, SCSI, newly clicking friend.
