Sigh, I feel dumb. I had my old Powerbook 145B up and running, and had it copying files to an emulated Mac running under Basilisk II on my laptop. Then it crashed, then the Powerbook failed to boot; I know those unhappy-Mac tones all too well. The drive wasn't spinning up at all.
Then I tried to unplug the SCSI cable connecting the HD to the motherboard, and RIPPED the damn thing. I am such an idiot.
Fortunately, a quick Google search turned up a place that actually sells old Powerbook accessories, including said HD cable. So I have it on order, it should be aWt the office in a couple of days. 'Course, that still doesn't mean the HD is going to spin up.
The truly stupid thing is that I had finished the copy about halfway earlier, then crashed the powerbook trying to plug in a battery. I then ended up _deleting_ the disk image with the copied files on the laptop. Figured I'd get a clean start. AUGH!
Oh well. The garage sale went well over the weekend; we got rid of what we needed to, and made a few bucks in the process, which will help in the moving process. And in software news, I got my DOM-based SOAP/SDL handler working today and should have WSDL sometime tomorrow (it's actually working, but there's a problem in the response handling). Hopefully I'll be able to commit this to Reef sometime tomorrow (need to get a couple of dependency issues figured out first).
