Blogs/Sites for Mac PowerPC
In this post I wanted to share blogs/sites that I check often for news & information with my PowerPC fans. There are a good number of people out there that are on the same page as us and they support our goal of keeping our processors running for as long as as they can;
*LowEndMac - http://lowendmac.com/ - It’s a really good place for resource, software, news, articles, etc. They are online since 1997 and I recommend clicking here!.
*TigerOSX Tiger is Here - http://tigerosx.wordpress.com/ - This is like my “sister site / brother blog” and I visit it almost every day. Recently, the blogger took a vacation but he is alive and posting! His post about AppleWorks6 is really good material/tutorial! I would say this blog is a must not just for Tiger but for all PowerPC users. Leopard users should watch out…because the Tiger is HERE!
*OldApps - http://mac.oldapps.com/ - They support old apps of the 3 main OS, Mac, Linux and Doors oops sorry I mean Windows. If you are still running an old computer you must check this site… you will find great apps available.
*SystemFolder - http://systemfolder.wordpress.com/ - Good informations about vintage Mac, manual, etc, but not limited to. Browse around and have some fun.
*PowerPC Software Archive - http://www.powerpcsoftware.com/ - For PowerPC users this is a great site that supports G3/G4/G5 (you can not go wrong), it’s all organized in tabs (Internet / video & audio/ text & document/ utilities, etc.) Some of the apps have an option of Mirror downloading or a link to the Official web site. They already have a good resource of apps/software, and a visit is a must. Their own words: “We have made our best attempt to deliver the last PowerPC versions of various Macintosh software, so that you may continue to extend the life of your computers.“
*PPC LUDDITE - http://ppcluddite.blogspot.com/ - They always supply great information, options, sources for PowerPC machines. It’s the perfect blog to check on a regular basis and you will always find great material. “Living PowerPC in the age of Intel”.
*Macintosh Garden - http://macintoshgarden.org/ - It’s a place for abandonware! Here we can find games/apps/software/emulators/etc. Even software for OS 9 and above. Browse around and I’m sure you’ll download a few things.
*My Mac Collection - http://macintoshcollection.wordpress.com/ - Also a “sister site / brother blog” that just started and already has great material available online, giving you great selections of software and tips on how to optimize your macintosh.
*F.A.Q for PowerPC Macs - http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1091765
*TenFourFox - http://tenfourfox.blogspot.com/ – How not mention one of the most important blog for Mac PowerPC users.
*And the Museum sites, I don’t know about you but I love to check old computers:
*Vintage Mac Museum – http://vintagemacmuseum.blogspot.com - It’s a nice space to browse with time.
*iMac World - http://imacworld.110mb.com/ (this is a nice site, it’s all about iMac G3, one of the most beautiful Macs).
*MyOldMac - http://myoldmac.net/ (nice place to know more about the old Macs).
*iFixOldMac - http://www.ifixoldmacs.com/ - Hardware repair/upgrades, software installation and other services check this site.
*RescueMyClassicMac - http://rescuemyclassicmac.com/ - Here we are talking about classic, Macintosh Classic, Macintosh Plus, Classic II, etc. They have available Systems: 1.1/2.0/6.0.8/7.0.1 in diskette format. I got one 6.0.8 myself and I will fire up my Macintosh Plus as soon as possible.
*MyAppleCollection - http://myapplecollection.wordpress.com/ – Very interesting blog, I could even get a feeling of what the life of a Mac Collector is like.
