    My dual 1.8 GHz G5 PowerMac died the other day, just wouldn’t boot up. So I replaced it with a dual 2.3 GHz one that’s about a year newer. I can’t use the existing Apple LCD display cos it uses an ADC connection. But I have a spare 20-inch DVI monitor.

      @doctorlinguist It is the DP 2.3, not the DC 2.3. And I has it. Just need a bit more RAM in it, currently it has 1.5 GB in 4 of the 8 slots. Cost me $150.

        @doctorlinguist There’s fella on the other side of town who has a dual 2 GHz & a dual 2.3 GHz G5 on sale for $69 each. I’ve made enquiries, just waiting for a call back. A dual 2.3 would be excellent.

          @doctorlinguist Bother. I’d had the thing on standby for about 6 weeks after the last shutdown. I had intended to turn it off completely but never got around to it. It had been working fine until then.

            My latest fuel consumption figures are interesting, I averaged 5.45 l/100 km over a distance of 627 km. That's almost 52 mpg (imperial gallons). And traveling at or just under the legal limits.

                Simple spelling exercise. I loathe doing such & such. I am loath to do such & such.

                    Because I work seven days a week, I tend to lose track of days on some level. Today feels like my Monday. In other news, I get a real day off on Friday! And coincidentally, Sunday, too! #Grateful

                      Reallt odd, scrolling thru my tineline in Kirby app, either up fom 2 hrs ago or down from now, at one particular post the app always falls over and has to be reopened. Switching to DotDot gets me past that bit.

                        @whoisashygirl I sinetimes use a 2008 MacBook Pro with a dodgy trackpad & keyboard. At some undefined stage they stop working si I use a mouse & Apple Bluetooth keybiard instead. The jeyboard fits neatly over the built-in one but it lacks backlighting.

                            “Hello, this is Marie, I’m calling you from Tekstra…..” “Get fucked, stay fucked and fucking LIKE IT! You’re a fucking scammer! Piss off, bitch!” Even if it had been Telstra, I rather doubt I’d have had a call from them at 9:40 pm.

                              I mentioned to the lady who was driving for last night's food parcel delivery run that I may need transport from home to the clinic then to Mum's place the day after the operation. She made herself available if no-one else could do it. So generous.

                                  @doctorlinguist I have a sick DP 1.8 G5, it won't boot up, just flashes its LEDs 3 times on a repeating cycle. I have reseated all four RAM modules & tried Cmd Opt P R, to no avail. If left long enough the fans spool up to full speed. Can it be salvaged?
