It just turned the 24th here, celebrating by decorating my PowerBook and checking out the Advent Calendar HyperCard stack I made back in 1997.
The art was stolen from a "Happy Holidays 1989" type jigsaw puzzle game we had on our Mac Classic that I have been unable to find again! (anyone else remember it?)
There was actually a little bit of drama involved in getting this screenshot. When downloading a 15 MB sit file of stuff I needed, the machine froze up, and on reboot crashed on boot (first picture).
After powering off and waiting 10 seconds and rebooting, it just showed a flashing question disk. Booting off this random Disk First Aid disk (that I don't ever remember buying??), the SCSI2SD was nowhere to be found!
After a few more poweroff+wait and reboots, it finally showed up and booted. But the second drive configured on the SCSI2SD was missing!
Running FWB, it showed up in there but wouldn't mount. After re-installing the disk driver with FWB and rebooting, it all worked again.
This SCSI2SD (or the SD card in it?) has felt kinda flakey to me since day 1, maybe it's time to replace it with an internal BlueSCSI/SCSIPi?
