More updates this weekend... Site News
With some luck, there will be a couple of special reports published this weekend. First, I hope to finish my overdue OS X "Intro to OS X Troubleshooting" report -- this is just my collection of techniques for diagnosing OS X issues, from basic troubleshooting through online resources.

Second, and perhaps of more interest, I hope to publish an in-depth hands-on review covering the new dual G5 PowerMac -- yes, after 100 days in the order queue, my new G5 finally arrived this week! I've spent the last couple of days updating this old benchmark chart (the new chart is not yet online), as well as running some new head-to-head comparisons of my current box (G4/733) against the G5. I'm going to try to pull it all together into one comprehensive report for anyone considering one of the new boxes.

Update: Yep, 0 for 2 this weekend. I did make some great progress with the G5 writeup, and hope to have it online in the next day or two -- both articles just turned out to be much more work than I anticipated, and family matters took precedence for much of the weekend ... sorry!

A new G5...

I can imagine that a new G5 leads to the same thing I experencied when I got my first broadband connection to the internet.

That is: 72 hours of no sleep:)

Looks like either the G5 has been so much fun you had no time for anything else, or it crashed and burned and you spent the whole weekend putting things back together :-)
