Yup, put a G4 in your Power Mac 6100!

Re: your latest purchase

Yeah, it was a little more than I wanted to spend, but these things obviously don't come up very often and it's in like-new condition. I want to bench the 7300 before and after so I haven't gotten a round tuit for installation yet. Hopefully this weekend. And I always find it surprising what upgrade...

Re: What I did over the weekend

Well, both. UAE got a lot faster on my G5 once they got the JIT working. It's pretty useable now.

Nice job though!

Re: your latest purchase

It's also a Sonnet. The urban legend is that Motorola sent them some 1GHz parts when they were out of the 800MHz ones, so Sonnet made a small run of the faster card. The various estimates of how many were made are all less than 200, and some dude on ePay had three of them in the original box! Compar...

Re: How to measure time?

I don't wear a watch anymore (I used to wear a solar powered Casio G-Shock with WWVB automatic time synchronization too, and it may even be the same model as smj's), but I do have a CSS Time Machine 1000A which provides a GPS-based time source over NTP.

Don't be sorry, because I never got around to fixing this. I'll have to try your method!

Re: your latest purchase

Got one of the hard to find 1GHz G4 upgrades for the beige PCI Power Macs. Though the bus holds these systems back, the L3 cache doubles to 2MB, so that should help quite a bit. My 7300 has the 800MHz/1MB version of this card and this ought to be a very welcome upgrade, since it is primarily a class...

Re: your latest purchase

Any pearls among the software? There's a RiscPC on the other desk here, plus an A5000, A540 and R140 under it (been playing with RISC iX). Giveme a shout if you hit any snags with yours. Unless someone has already done it, cut the battery out of the RiscPC _now_ and clean the m/b with vinegar/disti...

There's a (somewhat) native OS X build of Oni, too.

Re: Looking for good software For PPC macs

I know that pain. I had my first 1.2GHz iBook G4 cook its hard disk (the feetsies on the bottom don't provide nearly enough ventilation; I slap on bigger ones from the hardware store) and I managed to make a mess out of the bottom half. I never did get it replaced.

Yeah, the hue lights are stupid expensive, but having tried a few I think they have the best API and flexibility.

But, it works on IRIX! viewtopic.php?f=1&t=16730085

Re: Looking for good software For PPC macs

The main thing you're going to run into is, even by Power Mac standards, the iBook G4 wasn't super zippy with the possible exception of the very last generation (I myself use a 1.33GHz 12", and I would consider it useable for most things, but not quick; its main advantages over my MacBook Air a...

I have devices that control lighting, security cameras and power switching. They have internal APIs and sit on the non-routable network. I manipulate them through scripts I write and maintain myself.

Re: Macintosh Performa 475 replacement HDD

I also really like the Q605/P475. I put a full '040 in it and it runs NetBSD pretty well.
