inally got my fileserver - a blue and white G3 stacked with drives - back together after the archive disk fiasco. four drives, three bays. so i’ve squeezed a drive into the zip bay, which means its probably going to overheat anytime soon (but at least its just the system disk), and i couldn’t use the ata connector just lying there as the 1st gen B&Ws have a bad ata controller… so it now looks like a bad PC, with a modder cable stretching all over the shop.
bad, bad design case - the G4 was so much better. oh, and can i now open the side door? not all the way, the cable’ll break out of the pci card. sheesh.
