Life is full of synchronicity; most of the time, this is through the workings of chance, but every now and then we get to help it along. Two ships may pass in the night, but how often does the helmsman take a hand?
You’re the owner of a no-longer-working original PowerPC Mac mini. This awesome little piece of technology once rocked your world, but slowly, you moved on to bigger and better things. Maybe you upgraded; maybe it stopped working. This Mac mini, though, still hangs around, complete with a working SuperDrive. You may feel a bit of guilt over not passing it on or getting it refurbished.
I’m the owner of a proud original PowerPC Mac mini that is having problems with its SuperDrive. My mini wants to be a member of the OS X 10.4 generation but can’t boot from the internal drive, nor can it seem to find an external USB drive as a boot device.
If you’ve got a spare original Mac mini (or drive that fits) and you’re willing to part it with inexpensively, please drop me a line. No pina coladas or getting caught in the rain required.
