Thanks for having me on. BTW I just bought that American Girl Macintosh. Can't wait to see how I can hack it!
Neat episode ! That was a fascinating look at zips, a seriously deep dive down the rabbit hole. 1997 was my year of zips, learning Photoshop and Illustrator at OWCC. Thank you Rick, James, John, keep em coming :) tim
A good episode, I remember when I upgraded to OSX on my G4 Graphite which had an internal Zip drive.
I tried erasing a zip using OSX drive set up and I think it erased the drivers on the zip disk itself.
Not a good start to using Zip disks under the new OS.
I never found a way of recovering the now totally blank Zip disk.
