Sounds like my brain . . .   :)

I have a Performa 5xxx with a SCSI port and a LAN one; so can export all the
ancient, past it, probably reduplicated gubbins any time I want: 
probably put the content of
20 Zips on a DVD or a spare Hard drive.

I copied ALL of the Zip disk stuff, cleverly, onto a hard disk in an old 
Grey-&-white
ex-G3 (popped a G4 processor into it about 9 years ago); the only snag 
being that that
machine is now in the attic of my house in Scotland, and I won't be 
there until at
least July-August 2011.
