Power Mac G4 cooling project: Phase 1 - The plan fiftysixk, PowerPC Liberation, 7/27/14. It's good that someone is looking into this. My Power Mac G4 Quicksilver sounds like a 747 taking off with all the fans running. It might be a software issue.
TenFourFox TenFourFox Development, 7/21/14. TenFourFox 31 works great on my Power Mac G4 Quicksilver running Mac OS 10.4.11 (and Debian 7.6.0). Thanks, Cameron.
Watch NASA's Curiosity Rover Zap A Rock On Mars With A Laser Mike Wall, Huffington Post, 6/19/14. The Curiosity Rover just keeps rolling along and doing its job. Its "brain" is a radiation-hardened version of the PowerPC G3.
Tomorrow is the 45th anniversary of the first man on the moon. Hmm... Why not more space exploration and less war?
PowerPC Macs most definitely still have game Bob Skelley, Hitting the Sweet Spot, 7/17/14. "The rule of thumb for me and my ilk is that if it serves our purposes then by all means continue using 'outdated' technology." So true, Bob.
New Raspberry Pi “B+” uses less power, has more USB ports Jon Brodkin, Ars Technica, 7/14/14. This little RISC board has been very popular, with over 2 million sold. "There's an established ecosystem catering to it with literally hundreds of cases, add-on boards, etc. available." Why couldn't this have happened with PowerPC?
“Weaponized” exploit can steal sensitive user data on eBay, Tumblr, et al. Dan Goodin, Ars Technica, 7/8/14. "Like all security updates for Flash, users should install it immediately." Sorry, PowerPC users, no updates for you. Migrate to Linux and try GNU Gnash instead.
It's time to stop using Flash on Power Macs. Period. TenFourFox Development, 7/8/14. YouTube depends on Flash for .FLA file playback. PowerPC machines running OS X will continue to be vulnerable to the new Rosetta Flash exploit because Adobe won't patch Flash on PowerPC.
Men would rather give themselves electric shocks than sit quietly John Timmer, Ars Technica 7/5/14. Maybe some time working out in the garden using one's hands to pull weeds would help someone be at ease with their own thoughts. It's sort of a Zen thing.
