    ...lives a badge to remember its past.

    Some of us do, but not all of us use a PowerPC Mac as their daily primary machine. For those of you that don't any longer, do you acknowledge Macs That Once Were on your desk? How do you do so? I use a 2010 Mac Pro as my main desktop these days, and I love the fact that it looks nearly identical to my G5 that I still have on the other side of the desk; plus, it still works well with my PowerBook that comes back and forth to school with me. Inside I stuck the processor cover from an old dead single-processor G5 that I parted years back. What do you all do?

    I would've stuck the cover on the CPU heatsink itself, but I couldn't fit the little bugger on there :p

    Mid-2010 Mac Pro at work.

    I acknowledge PowerPC Macs at work by using them! :D

    Tiger G4/350 far left, our Applescript server - running headless.
    Leopard G4/450 on the right, our print server, older apps platform. Without this Mac serving up our printers my MP cannot print.

    MP on the floor. PS. The 1.8Ghz G5 is off to the right being used by my coworker to do the same thing I do.

    I bought it for the jar, not the coffee. :D

    Kind of screwed anyway here at work. The bosses only buy Folgers. :(

    Just pulling your chain Erik,:) I've drank my share of really bad coffee over the years, and always at my place of employment.

    Oh I know, no worries! :D

    Unfortunately, we will probably get our next Intel Mac at work well before the bosses decide to start buying Starbucks or Seattle's Best - which is to say never. :D
