RE: Mac Pro shipping from RI to you via FedEx would be about $75 (50lb package 24x24x10).
I have an good box.

So if you want it for $500 total (and we do the sale through eBay) you would need to come up with money for shipping. Or you could buy it from me directly - sending the money without a PayPal fee via the send money to friend option. Otherwise I would only net about $375 after shipping, PayPal fees and eBay seller fees. Postal Money order would be another option. Or I could list it publicly for $400 and shipping and we could see what happens. You might be better off finding a single or dual tray CPU 4,1 in your area and upgrading it as funds become available. Just make sure it's the Mac Pro version with the pull out CPU tray. Let me know.

Hey! Just wanted to drop by and say "Thank you" for your uploads on the OSX PowerPC front. There is so much software out there that needs to be archived - keep up the good work! Smile


Hi Scott. Thank you for your upload of Chamber of Secrets. I have removed some material from you description (references to EA and other trademarks, and the Aspyr support link which no longer leads to support as Aspyr do not support this any more)


Hello Scott.

Thank you for your message. Here is some info about myself and the admin staff. We are all unpaid volunteers. We do what we can to keep the site working smoothly as possible. But there are no jobs going here, in the sense of the word "job" meaning gainful employment. The work we do here is done in our own free time, outside of our own regular work or lifestyles. So we do not and cannot hire people. If the site was a commercial venture then it would likely be different in that sense, but as the nature of the MG as being free for everyone, this is unlikely to change in the foreseeable future.

Myself, I am 63 years, born in New Zealand and now live in Australia. My current Macs are Centris 660AV, Beige G3 300MHz, eMac G4 1 GHz, G4 iBook 1.3GHz, and Mac Mini 2GHz Intel. The Mac OS's I use most, range from System Software 6.0.8 to Mac OS X 10.6.8.

Do have a safe and happy New Year's eve, Scott. I hope to see you active and participating in the MG in 2017 and beyond.

Regards, Mike.

Hello Scott. Any of those games advertised at Amazon should be OK if the seller is not the publisher. For example; Centipede from macsoft 2001 - MacSoft being the publisher, if they no longer sell the game and the Amazon seller is not MacSoft, then this game would be OK.

If a commercial game is no longer sold by the publishing company and is 10 years old or older then its pretty much OK to upload here.

Exceptions in your list are the Electronic Arts games. You had better hold off from uploading these as these are still not acceptable for now. I have asked the other admins for a 2nd opinion, but as a rule we haven't been allowing them (except for those that were owned by EA previously but have since changed ownership).

The two systems;

Power Mac G4 Software install and restore 1-2... This would be good to have archived here.

Mac OS X 10.5.6 DVD... the 10.5.4 DVD + 10.5.8 Update is here. But I'm not even sure that one should be here now, as it is newer than 10 years old. I will need to consult with my colleagues about this.

Cheers, Mike.


Hi Scott. Any of those games should be fine. If a commercial game is no longer sold and is 10 years old or older then its pretty much OK to treat it as being abandoned. Thanks for your involvement with the site, its very much appreciated. Cheers, Mike.


Hello Scott. You may be wondering what has happened to your "Burning Monkey Solitaire 4.0.2" upload? This was removed for being currently "too new" for the site. See Rules in "Guides" link for the MG's updated rules section. Don't worry tho' as it will be added back into the games section in January (approx. 2 months from today). Thanks, Mike.

Hello Scott, I removed your patch update pages and moved the patches to their appropriate pages (for Crystal Caliburn & Loony Labyrinth) in case you were wondering what has happened to those pages for the updaters. Thanks for uploading the patches, too.
