Hmm, a way of backing up / restoring to / from a machine connected to
the serial port might be a handy feature, by the way - assuming the port
speed doesn't knock that on the head..

I'll mention it to the others at the museum - cool bit of hardware :)
We've got 4 working Profiles left (and a 5th that we haven't tested yet)
so we're doing OK for working units at the moment. Good to know this
exists though!

Getting working ST506 drives still of course isn't much of a problem,
but far as I recall the original drives were low level formatted by
Apple themselves prior to being shipped and neither the necessary
hardware or software is around to do this these days :-(
