Found what looks like a 2Gb drive in the Alpha when I was cleaning up the computer room a little yesterday. I had forgotten it was there.

Also discovered that the alpha appears to be having some power supply issues. Oh well, I can use the drive in the sparc, and start working on getting the AlphaPC running. It needs a floppy and a CDROM, at the very least. OK, a CDROM, since the floppy looks non-standard….

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.
