Dug out my old Powermac 8500 to use as a basement computer. Plugged it into an extra dell 2005fpw and bam, it works. Plugged in an ethernet cable and I'm on the net. Using a 604 180mhz processor with 448mg of ram on OS 9 and Internet explorer 5. Downloaded the flash plugin and all the kids websites work fine. Computer is damn quiet too.

PS: I wrote this message on it and it is awesome. You really don't see that much speed difference on the internet.

Why MG, when you got GB right? It should be obvious... Megabyte, Gigabyte... MB, GB... Unless you're taling about memory that is physically weighted 16 mg?

Yeah, I weighed it. Its 16 mg. :eek:

I guess I should fix that. It stems from me calling ram megs.
