Now for some better news: YAY!

We went to three computer stores today looking for local solutions… The first had SATA capable computers, but it was all via the motherboard so they didn't stock PCI cards or enclosures. The second carried no SATA at all. The third, a little dive in a strip mall, managed to find an old 4-drive SATA RAID card covered in dust at the bottom of a box, although they didn't carry power cables for the drives…

But, with that adaptor, a power cable scavenged from a derelict computer here, and a precariously dangling drive, I've managed to bring all of my files online. Right now I'm waiting for the copy to begin from one of the mirrors to my RAID NAS device for archiving (I don't even begin to want to think about how long it's going to take to get from “Preparing to Copy” to “Copying” there are so many files). So anyway, problem solved I think!

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
