    Ok, so I have had this 1.0Ghz G4 just sitting around with a bad hard drive for a while.

    So first things first, I pulled the drive and cleaned it:


    And installed Leopard on it.

    Where might I find, or can anyone recommend, some good educational software for the PPC?

    I've got an Airport Extreme card on the way ($15) and already maxed the ram @ 1GB.

    First time I've ever used Apple's parental controls - freaking NICE, I have to say!

    I don't have anything to add on the educational software but I can say that your video was very nicely made and edited.

    A warning about the possibility of high voltage electrocution would have been nice.

    The way I see it, hes already done it and survived obviously so no need for warning.

    As usual, you've missed the point.
    The warning would be for others, those that might use the video as a DIY.

    I'm not an orthopaedic doctor based in California so I wouldn't know why your neck ''does what it does''.

    If you yourself have been injured by a CRT then surely you more than anyone would approve of some sort of warning message?

    Edit Did not see jbarleys post took another look at it and it seems as thou he was refering to me saying that the video was good and him adding in that would it of killed the maker of the video to simply add a warning
