Nice to hear you kept the your old machine and even better that it still works.

Welcome to the forums and have fun.

My main computer is a PowerMac G5 (late 2005).

But for on the road I keep using my old 800 Mhz TiBook and then there is the good old PowerMac 7100/80 waiting to be turned on every now and then for a classic game or surfing around the net, trying various things Smile

Wow, I thought my PowerMac 6100 was old, (I'm using it right now with Classilla 9.3.1). I'm glad to hear of people using much older machines regularly. I have an LC and a IIsi, but I hardly ever use them. I keep them running mainly as a novelty.

This 6100 (well actually a 6116CD), has been upgraded with a 500MHz Sonnet G3 CPU, 264MB RAM, 4MB HPV video card, 50GB scsi Hard Drive, 32GB Compact Flash with IDE converter, and a nice scsi CD burner.

Some of the more heavily used software includes MS Office 2001, Photoshop 7, Classilla, and quite a few emulators & games. It also runs Windows 98SE via Virtual PC, although I don't really need it because it's networked with my PC using DAVE.

This thing will actually run quite a few 3D games that are capable of software mode, such as Deus Ex, Unreal, Unreal Tournament, etc. These are quite playable at decent framerates, especially UT.

I have a Powerbook G4 1,67 that I use as a router. I create an ad hoc network on my main computer upstairs and then connect the Powerbook to that over wi-fi and then connect whatever other machine I want to take online to the Powerbook through ethernet. That's the Mac that sees the heaviest use, obviously.

More recently, I acquired an SE/30 so I've been playing around with that a lot just to see how much better it is than the 68000 based machines. I'll probably put that away as an investment once the novelty wears off.

I am currently working on a cookery show that includes 2D traditional animations. I have a Mac Pro do most of the video editing work but I still do all the hand drawn animations on a G4 upgraded 9500 that runs Mac OS 7.6.1. This mac has a Wacom tablet and as I found the way do do file sharing between snow leopard and 7.6, I kept the 9500 as my main drawing/animating platform.

I also have an old LC III with a few games that I setup for my son.

I had a 3400c that is having hard drive issues, so I've fallen back to my trusty 1400c.

I multinboot between System 7.6 - OS 9 based on the apps I want to use and when I need to go online, I use my VNC client to get on my G5 desktop.

I even have my G5's DropBox folder shared on it, so I can upload and download documents and other items with my Mac and share files online with other computers!
