As my only viable backup of Hackintosh 2.0 was killed in the fall, and it looks like the only way to get it booting is to completely reformat the working drive, I've spent the second half of today copying files and folders over onto THE PENGUINATOR using a 32GB memory stick. But there's something like 700GB to transfer, and the memory stick is *slow*. I can't immediately lay hands on a DVD-RW, and even if I could I'd have no easy way to verify that it worked, I'd just have to take it on trust. Which, with my recent luck, I'm not willing to do.
I'm using Ubuntu to copy off the files, specifically a 10.04 LTS "Live CD". It seems to do the job.
But there were a few false starts where the video screen scrambled or locked up through overheating. Eventually I had to turn the internal fans up to "small jet 'plane circling" levels, and I can now feel it warming the room.
I'm having a glass of to cool off.
I watched "Archer", "Supernatural", "TV Burp" and "The Jonathan Ross Show". I'm now waiting for "Law and Order: SCU" to come on 5+1.
