Hi Miles,

Thanks for the loan of your ZIF-PATA adaptor last year.

Now, I am wondering if I might be able to borrow your LIF/ZIF to SATA
(or, even better, USB) adaptor for a day or so? I have a (possibly
dead) SATA drive from a not-quite-so-old MacBook Air A1304 where they
switched from PATA to SATA, but retained the ZIF/LIF cable connection.

Let me know if it is convenient for me to come and collect it from
