Sadly, as I look over this site, I admit that many links are now non-functional. The information here is generally still fine, but you will have to search around for working links to the apps I recommend. Some developers have likely removed older apps, even though it is handy for users of old PowerPC machines. There are some app alternative websites too, including at websites like PowerPC Software Archive. Open source apps are just a great resource in times like these, as they tend to have ready archives available for users trying to maintain ancient machines.
So, hang tight. I’ll be fixing links, removing some outdated software, and seeing what the future is for this website.
It’s a nice, wet spring afternoon up here in the lower northeast, so I got a bit of updates done on the website that have been brewing for a while. I continue to want to improve the readability and accessibility of this website. If you have suggestions or feel like something is missing, please let me know in the comments below.
Meanwhile, one subtle change to the website is that I am trying to include notice of when each page was last updated. Below the introduction text on each page, you’ll see a new line:
I hope it is helpful as you make return visits, looking for new links and other updated information.
It’s been nearly a month since my last post. I’ve basically just been very busy with travel and projects caring for homeless men and women in my community.
So to tithe you over, here are a few links for your continued perusal and learning.
The Quadras, Cubes, and G5 blog followed the exploits of its author in trying to get his G5 back and running after it failed to boot up. It’s a good read if you have similar issues with your G5, because someday, you will. Maybe it’s the G5s finicky power management system? Who knows. Read the first one here, then his followup, and then the exciting conclusion.
Good news: TenFourFox 31.5.0 is out. Also, in that same link, find out how to build RAM disks in Tiger/Leopard if you want. Cool stuff.
