G5s and Minor Traffic Violations

I got my grubby hands on a PowerMac G5 for the first time on Friday at the CompUSA across from work. It was nice but it was the low-end model and only had 256 MB of RAM. Not exactly fully loaded. Still, any G5 hooked up to a HD Cinema Display and Bose speakers doesn’t fail to impress. Steven Frank is right though, the plasticy Cinema Displays don’t go with the all-metal G5. Now if only I could figure out how to conceal one in my pants and slip out quietly, I’ll be set. =-)

Also, thanks to Rob and Irene for having us over last night. I started to take a wrong turn on our way back to the highway, realized if I kept going we’d be headed the wrong way, reversed until we were facing the right way again (since no one was around), was getting close to the correct on ramp, and was promptly pulled over for the little stunt. I was let off with a warning and a head full of adrenaline.

Ugh - I can’t beat that. Though - within the first 6 months of having my drivers license, I was pulled over 5 times.. FIVE! !! For no real reason. I’ve never gotten a ticket or anything. Strange.

MY Cinema Display isn’t plasticky. It’s a little translucent god.

as a person who has watched someone else get a cinema display and the death of his beloved G4: eat me.

The G4 died?

Nick Runco
