it's good to be back

If you've been following this blog, you might recall that I bought a Power Mac G4 (dual 1.42GHz) in April 2004. Not long after that, I bought a 20-inch Apple Cinema Display (ADC version). Then in January 2007, I sold it to a friend.

Apple Power Mac G4 and Cinema Display

Two weeks ago, she gave me back the Power Mac G4 and the Cinema Display. Actually, she gave me back a super-charged one. (After she bought my Power Mac G4, she bought another identical one, but with all the upgrade options on.)

The hard drive failed. I replaced one and re-installed the operating system. The machine boots and works like new, just a bit noisy. Speed isn't great (at today's standard), but back then, it was pretty fast.

It was my main computer for many years, and there were quite a bit of memories with it.

Instead for installing Mac OS X Leopard (v.10.5), I decided to install Mac OS X Tiger (v.10.4) on it. What am I going to do with it? I haven't decided it yet.

I suggest you will add it to your existing large power usage, and expensive bill!
But hey, it doesn't matter, anything could happen in 2012, enjoy!!
