Just call me sheepish.  After fiddling with a couple of data cables to no
avail, discovered that the molex power plug from the power supply
and/or the molex power socket from the SATA power adapter cable
doesn't have a good grip and came unplugged.  Kinda hard to work
without power. ;-)

Since there isn't another spare connector, I redressed the cable to
minimize the risk.  I may thread a twist-tie around the coupled
connectors between the wires to strap it together, too.

There's always something...
