Big Mac

So I got another Mac. This replaces Donald as my main machine, who has been temporarily been cast aside, but I have several plans for him.


Big Mac is a Power Mac G4 Quicksilver. 733 MHz. I've done the Open Firmware diddle to get Leopard running on him, and given him a nice 768MB of RAM to run with, and there's a USB 2.0 PCI card on the way as I write, though its arrival has been delayed by the volcanic ash cloud.


I have the typical 'new computer'…

iMac G4 & Snow Leopard

Hi Vintage Mac Fans,
I will be moving soon and I want to have a whole new desk set up. I am getting the Macbook Pro 13" but I also want a desktop. I don't want to get one of the new desktops so I am looking at some old ones. I have done some research and found one that I like, even though it was announced years ago but it still looks cool, the iMac G4. It has a nice flexible neck and is good for a cheap set up.

Update!

I just noticed that it's been a few days since I last posted, and wanted to get something out there!



Next weekend the friend whose uncle is selling me his Apple IIe, is going back home to compete in a fishing tournament. He's from Tipton, MO which is about 133 miles north of Springfield. He is coming home pretty late Sunday night, so I'm going to have to wait to pick the computer up on Monday. That's cool, I don't have a place to set it up yet, put I probably will by then.



I'm… Continue
