I’ve been archiving some old hard drives – Amiga hard drives as it happens.
I have a USB to Parallel ATA adapter, but powering the drives was a bit of a headache. Usually I’d just pull the side off the PC and find a dangling cable. Instead, I made a quick 12v to Molex converter.
A couple or three decades ago, I was a lot geekier than I am now.
I favoured a non IBM PC compatible type of computer known as the Commodore Amiga. At the time it, and the community surrounding it was a huge part of my life. I used to host meets at my house where 20 or 30 folk would show up and many would bring their machines.
