Never thought I’d use it…

Earlier this summer when someone told me that you could hook two Macs together with a firewire cable, boot one up while holding down the “T” button and access its drive from the other like any other external firewire drive, I never actually thought I’d use it.

 

Today, while working on one of my daughters’ Macbooks, I screwed up the hostconfig file while trying to edit it with TextEdit (I know, I should have used VI to start with). I should have guessed that TextEdit wouldn’t leave the file without a file extension, but I didn’t.
