From the Cradle to the Upcycle Julia, iFixit, 5/21/13. "Could this really be possible? Design for repair and disassembly would go a long way, but end-of-life is just one side of a product’s environmental footprint. Will it ever be possible to manufacture computers without materials that ravage the earth? Without toxic elements?"
Slowend Mac Dr. Dave, PowerPC Liberation, 5/19/13. LEM is slowly coming to terms with the fact that just a few months ago Mozilla fired gutshots at Gecko browsers (TenFourFox, SeaMonkey, etc.) used on PowerPC Macs running OS X . Migrate to PPC Linux, folks.
SeaMonkey 2.18 release for PPC is available Hiker Biker, 5/17/13. "It seems Mozilla won't be putting out a SeaMonkey 2.18 on their own because their build machine is broken?" Hmm...

We interrupt our regularly scheduled (PowerPC related) programming to report on something that has never before happened in human history.
Debian 7.0 ("Wheezy") Released Timothy, Slashdot, 5/5/13. "Debian is a solid enough distribution that plenty of other distros use it as a base. That should say something about the quality of the work they do. Without Debian there'd be no Ubuntu or Linux Mint."
Debian 7.0 RC3 released Debian Developers' Corner, 5/2/13. This should be the last release before Debian 7.0 is declared "stable". After adding the lightweight LXDE desktop environment and Netatalk to a basic installation... So far so good on my Quicksilver.
1st website ever restored to its 1992 glory CBC News, 4/30/13. CERN, the European organization for nuclear research, hosted the first world wide web site on a NeXT workstation (25 MHz 68040, 64 MB RAM). Think NeXTSTEP, think Steve Jobs, think OS X.
