The problem I remember being told about in the Mac’s SCSI days was that if you failed to remove the plug smoothly you could short out other devices in the SCSI chain.

From what you and my friend are saying, that was a crock. Oh, well.

He also changes things on the network without shutting down each time. My cable modem instructions tell you to shut down completely, then plug one thing in and restart, and repeat for each device. Gets very old, that does.

I always was one of those kids who followed instructions literally and precisely. Silly, huh?
