I was wondering...      now that SATA drives are 20 years old...    are
there any young 'uns on the list who have never dealt with PATA drives?

Just curious.     And feeling old.

I suspect I've got a couple of MFM drives still too. Heck, I can remember backing up the 10MB appletalk connected hard drive to VHS tape back in the day.
