Ok this is a classic f##k-up. I can't believe what I just did. I'm setting up my brand spankin' new MP 2.26 Octa monster.... I have been waiting for 2 weeks, drooling and I got it today at work. Bust out of the office early, get home this afternoon, and begin the setup- only to find I need a Firewire 800 cable to load all my crap from the old, venerable G5 dual. Thought I had one (I've got 15 FW 400 cables in every iteration!) but noooooo! Now I'm a little hot, cause I know I read that it only has 800 ports, but I missed it. Off to the closest Apple store because absolutely no retail business in the surrounding 50 miles carries these! The idiot at Best Buy says "you're a Mac guy right?" ... I swear I hear him chuckle under his breath. Finally, at the Apple store and I'm so freakin excited now that I go bonkers and buy a second Radeon card (that's my ultimate plan, to have dual 23" Cinema's side by side) in addition to the FW cables. I'm out, I get home and I go. Now the G5 is hooked up in transfer mode and it's churning for over 50 minutes and I look up and I've got less than 3 minutes left! Now picture the G5 placed on my physical desktop, the new MP under the desk is devouring all these new bits and bytes and wait.... my iPhone goes off, there's a new email, and I have, like 2 minutes before I can blow the doors off my entire previous computing experience. I reach out for the iphone and of course... accidentally bump the power cord on the back of the G5. Power cuts off!!!! The MacPro's 8 cores stutter and vomits! Transfer error, go back and start over.... Tried transferring just the last part of the set-up, my applications folder but no, this doesn't seem to want to fly. Right now, reloading from the installation discs and will probably be up till 2am...crap! Go ahead have agood laugh at my idiocy, I deserve it.
