I'm an old buddy of John's from when I still lived in FWB,FL. I logged some time on John's many arcade and mac machines!

Where did you get that Woz song? Do you know if I can play it on the podcast?

Timbotronik,

Thanks for the kind words about my MacQuarium. It was a fun build.

So I see Alien and fractals on your screen. Nice! Two of my favorite things!

Very cool song with the Woz, the Wiz, and the Tetris. Thanks for putting it up for us all to enjoy.

I donate in $ and yes they are quite popular although they seem more prolific,easier and cheaper to get hold of over in the USA.

Hi. I still use my Beige to this day. It has a 1 GHz G4, along with a whole slew of other upgrades, and its running Tiger (10.4.11) quite nicely. I thought I was at the end of line with this thing 5 years ago, but then I started upgrading the heck out of it, and was pleasantly surprised, so I kept going with it. Plus, with the help of XPostFacto, each release of OS X actually ran better than the previous ones.

I thought the same thing thing when I unboxed the 1400... it did have the warranty card still in the box :)

No, I haven't read Hackers, but it sounds like a good read. I'll have to check it out. I know what you mean about being born ten years too late. I've often made the same statement. And yes, Space Quest is the best that came out of Sierra.

Hi, Timbotronik. Thanks for the add. :-)

I would say I'm more of a hobbyist as well, although I wouldn't mind doing some professional stuff with it. ;-) I've got two synths and a few computers I work with. I've been messing around for a few years with GarageBand and it's done me well, but I think I've hit the wall with it currently (especially with no built-in MIDI out). I've been looking at more of the open source music production apps out there and they do look promising. I've got Ardour running on my iMac G5 and I have some free software synths I've found, and they seem to have worked for me. I'm also using LMMS on GNU/Linux and it's been fun.

Hope to hear from you again soon. I'd love to hear some of your stuff. :-)

BTW, I did enjoy "Woz Went Down to Georgia." :-)

Thanks for asking - how did you know that I've been needing a little push on that project? So many projects so little time! The "new" GS is running fine - the old one is still pretty much an empty box. Lately I've been spending what free time I have on trying to learn Cocoa and Xcode and a little Filemaker on the side (and other "little" projects) so I'm a bit spread out and my focus is easily distracted. I have made only small strides that's for sure! The GS has taken a back burner but it's right here where I can admire it every day. It's all fun and there's really no rush - that would take away the fun of the journey!
Love your page by the way!

I know I was lucky to have 64mb on my 486, but remember that my dad was into computers and they had a lot of spare parts. It originally had only 16 when they bought it but the mother board was very expandable. I had a lot of fun with it. I guess the only reason why win98 ran half decent was because of the enormous amount of memory I was able to put into it.

Right now I am running two macbooks. One of the last white ones and one of the late 2008 aluminum ones. I had a blueberry imac, a indigo imac, a g3 powermac blueberry, a dual usb ibook and a beige g3 7600. the powermac and the indigo imac I am donating to my sisters who never had a computer before. Everything else I had to give away for lack of space to keep them running. So sad, but such is life you know.
Thanks for commenting.

Thank you for the generous offer. We even have someone in our mac user group who is still using an imac with os 9. Tried to get here to upgrade, but she is to comfortable and does not want to learn something new. This offer will help her also if her computer needs a clean install. Thank you again.

well... it is the stolen from apple logo if you went into the debugger and typed a certain hexadecimal it would show up on the desktop. Steve jobs interned to use it if he took the clones to court.

Thank you again for the much anticipated OS 9 and other cds.
