I finally got the G5 set up. I think it is just a shame that I have 2 dual-core processors and a measley 256MB og RAM! I ordered the new sticks, so they should be in next week I suppose. Still getting prefs. set up and apps installed. I will nee to get an FTP program and a text editor with syntax highlighting and preferrably FTP save.

I LOVE iCHAT!! It lets me keep my buddies in my contacts, which means I can see their real names!!


RAM for Sale

I have some RAM I bought for my new G5, but due to a restocking error, I had to get the new motherboard, which means the RAM is no good. Here is a link:

So the computer is only 2 months and 3 weeks late, but who’s counting? I actually decided NOT to plug it in today, because I know it will consume my life for a while, just gadgeting around. I need to get up in the morning and work for 3 hours before I do this (or as long as it takes to add a new preference to Unity. I also found out the RAM I bought is no longer good for my new machine, so now the decision is re-stock fee vs. eBay. If anybody is looking for 2GB of 184-pin RAM, ask me. I need you to beat $200 to make it worth my while.

New Digital Camera

Something pocket-able, but 4 or 5 MP that doesn’t break the bank. Mom also got one for Stefan, with matching 256MB SD cards, or 150 full-size pictures. I think 5MP blows up bigger than an 8.5×11 inch sheet of paper, so that is plenty enough quality for me. Breathing room for cropping, automatic red-eye removal, a bit faster shots for brightly lit action, a VERY bright flash, a timer with an option to take two pictures (serious and goofy?), as well as 3x optical zoom, macro mode, all the standards.

So it turns out too many people wanted to upgrade their old single-core Macs to better ones, meaning they ran out before they got around to filling the employee orders. So I got a refund and my Mom was like, “just order the best system you can”, so I pretty much did. Now the “PowerMac G5 Quad” (2×2.5 GHz dual-cores). I opted for the GeForce 7800 GT and Bluetooth/AirPort Extreme (802.11G).
