More PowerPC Here

I feel really happy and I get twitter/e-mail of people all over the place trying to get into the PowerPC scene.  There are pretty much 2 ways, you can either use Mac OS X 10.5 or Linux (very update), also you can play both sides as long you have a good size hard drive.

Djay for Mac PowerPC

Who doesn’t want be DJ?

I would say that djaying is one of the most time consuming thing to do with your computer if you are into music and throw party to friends.

Sad news to get the newest Macbook Air or Macbook Pro just to djaying is very expensive, so why not look for an old cheap option like PowerBook  or iBook, most of people won’t know the different unless you are using a very cool colour iBook G3 or a PowerBook Pismo/Wallstreet that the Apple logo is upside down.

Either way you can install a old version of Djay (3.1.2) totally compatible with Mac OS X 10.5.  Of course there are some limitations when you compare the most recent 4.2.3, but the application run just fine and you will rock the party… …as long as your music rocks, of course.

Have fun guys.

RightZoom on PowerPC

The green button at the top of every window is actually called the “Zoom Button”. In some applications it actually does maximize the window. Then, in some like iTunes, it changes the interface from the full iTunes layout to the mini-player. In other apps, it just resizes the window to what Apple thinks is the best ‘fit’. To say this is a bit confusing to recent switchers is putting it mildly. So – lets fix that button once and for all.

Right Zoom provides a quick and easy solution for the zoom button’s inconsistent behavior. It enables you to make the zoom button maximize to full screen when you click the green orb.
