Zip drive? Luxury. Oh what I had to go through to pull a few QuarkXpress documents off of a SyQuest drive for my brother! "SCUD: The Whole Shebang" wouldn't have been complete without it!

Had to dig up an old Performa-era Mac that had the SCSI-1 (non-Centronics style) connector that the SyQuest drive had. The drive was borrowed in friend-of-a-friend style. And then... how to get the files off of that Mac!? Ethernet/AppleTalk issues on an 80's Mac in a 21st-century networking environment wasn't trivial.

I don't think I could remember how to do it again if I had to.
