Crash, bang, wallop: What a power-down. But what hit the kill switch?

Re: Not Unique...

I got my work computer, G3 Power Mac, back after it went dead. Got called by the tech guy you had the side down (wonderfully accessible machines) and was looking at the board.

'The only thing will be to hit the reset switch' he says (it was on the board) obviously not wishing to take responsibility for doing it. At which point my finger snaked out and pressed it, machine whirrs into life and I'm a happy scientist.

It was still working well when I left that lab. I did personal surgery to that box, swapping a drive bay with another box to enable the installation of an internal Zip drive. Very easy to do. Compared to iMac surgery the G3/4 towers were a dream to work on.
