Well, that’ll be an end to it then.
My stalwart PC containing my trusty SX2.2 install has finally and irrevocably clocked it’s last cycle. It might be the PSU, the MOBO, the processor. To be honest, I don’t have the will to find out.
I’ve popped the drive out and put it into a USB2 caddy and it spins up fine and the Macs can both see it, so the data is all retrievable. Such as it is.
If I had the first clue where my Cubase install disks were I might try putting it on the iMac, though I suspect SX2.2 and Snow Leopard have never met, and probably wouldn’t get along if I tried to introduce them. So there we are.
Might make an ornament out of my syncrosoft dongle. Encase it in epoxy resin for future generations to wonder at.
Might buy a house plant instead.
