Another year, another year of service out of my G5.
2017 for me promises to be a weird year – of resistance, change, renewal, and growth. I plan to get back to school with some graduate studies. I plan to write and read more. I plant to program a tad more. I plan to try some new things.
On the G5 front, I really appreciate all the emails that come my way, and I hope my meandering responses are helpful. I’ll be combing through those emails and offering up a new Troubleshooting page to the site, with tips and suggestions when your G5 goes horribly wrong. Let’s face it – these old Macs won’t last forever.
Second, I am hoping to dive back into some programming in XCode and work on a thing or two. New software for our PPC G5s is essentially non-existent or rare. We have TenFourFox, maybe Leopard-Webkit, SimpleMarkPPC (shameless plug), and some themes (like LeopardRebirth). Can we encourage new versions of software or new software products for our aging hardware? I think it’s a worthy goal. Stay tuned.
I’d love your feedback as usual. What are you looking forward to for your PPC machines in the new year?
