Sad news to report, I've sold my final remaining working PowerPC, my Quad G5. A bit bittersweet as this is the first time in 15 years I won't have a PPC hanging around.

I have one quad salvage in my closet, I think I'm going to part it out (failed LCS), including a spare Quadro FX 4500.

This has been one of my favorite forums to hang out on, it will be a little different not being able to tinker and respond directly to posts that relate to something.

I've seen dead G4 chips with a copper ring soldered to the back used as key fobs. I think they hold up pretty well, and you could always round off the corners with a diamond dremel tool so they're more pocket friendly.

Good luck on your next project.
