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
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.
