You might recall that the computer which powered the Z-Cam is down and out.
I ordered an gizmo which allows you to connect a hard disk drive to a USB port. This is a SATA/PATA/IDE Drive to USB 2.0 Adapter Converter Cable for 2.5 / 3.5 / 5.25 Inch Hard Drive / Optical Drive with External AC Power Adapter. What a remarkably handy gizmo. If you don’t need one at this moment, you probably will.
Fortified by a lunch of Gui Zhou Chicken hot enough to rouse the dead, I figured out the gizmo and plugged it in. .
I am now transferring stuff from the disk. I have just left it in the old computer for the time being.
The Z-Cam. What to do…. I knew things were going too smoothly for too long and Zuhlsdorf’s Law had to kick in. What to do…?
