    Took the words right outta my mouth, arn. Well, that and the cobwebs... *ptooey* Heh...

    Apple's web site sure is a great place to find old defunct pages, ain't it? I wonder if those old original iMac pages are still around. I remember a little less than a year ago doing a search online for some Apple PR pics and the PowerMac G3 was still there! :eek: (Just not linked from the main PR page.) Craaazy man. :p

    Ummm, guys...

    I don't know where that link came from, but it is quite old indeed. In fact, I don't think the Mother Ship knows it's open. The whole site is a private link for the designers of Apple's MoBos for the 1998-1999 computers. It gous into some great detail with issues known on the boards and how they plan to fix them. I almost feel dirty for having been there. Hope I don't get into trouble.:(

    I find this to be interesting. On the secure login page for vendors it lists Intel, of all companies. And their file folder was last updated on July 25 of last year.

    hmm....interesting. :D

    Anyone know who foxconn is? their folder was updated only a few weeks ago.

    We could start a new sport, web spelunking. You go to massive corporate tech sites and see what you can dig up. ;)

    Sorry to double post but I found out what Foxconn is. Foxconn is the maker of CRTS for the CRT iMac and eMac. Nothing exciting.

    :D first thing I noticed :D

    That seems a nice, and thrilling sport.
    This could very well be the next gen sport
    people singning in for a session of web spelunking, and then during 1 hr we drill into the securest sites around, cost for such an event 10$

    Why, exactly, is the IBM thing a tad weird? I understand intel being a tad wierd, but IBM?

    Didn't IBM make all the G3 processors? And several other PPC chips...:rolleyes:

    Actually, i got to thinking about it. the dates aren't modification dates, they're creation dates (which is why the moto date is so old). these are simply redirects to secure servers, and that's why there appears to be nothing in the folders.

    i would stay tuned on the intel thing. that's just much too interesting given the current state of the powermacs.

    ...pure speculation, though. :cool:

    Something makes me think of CHRP...common hardware reference platform. Could Apple have been testing it all along and we don't know anything about it? Perhaps they've tested it and decided to wait until we all can comfortably live as Mac OS X on Intel. Remember, Apple could be testing dozens of designs and not one ever comes to market. Remember the Apple Design Group?

    Intel no big revelation

    Intel has been providing controller chips for Apple Mobo's for years. Most notably, open up your old G4 and you'll find an ethernet controller made by Intel. That's all. No big rumor revelation.
