2014 …and Justice for us.

This is my first post after a long vacation!  I really tried to keep in touch and do some research but for so many reasons I couldn’t get back on track and actually I was most of the time “off line”.

We are on our way through 2014 and I’m glad to see you’re all still using PowerPC!  I was pleasantly surprised to see that people have started collecting the PowerPCs…I saw that the G3s have gone straight to the “rare list” and noted an iBook clamshell on eBay costing over $200.  The message is simple:  if you’re lucky enough to have one, then hold on to it because you might get way more in a few years!

A while ago I received an e-mail from Zen (PowerPC Liberation: http://powerpcliberation.blogspot.com) telling me that a copycat was mirroring his blog.  I was very surprised that we get to this point where people would steal material for unknown reasons, because if this person is looking to make money with ads, frankly PowerPC material is not the most popular technology online!  Also he copied everything and I mean EVERYTHING.  So please, as we are becoming a very united and close group if you guys see something suspicious let’s give a heads up to each other and share information.  We PowerPC users know where to get news/information and if there is a new blog with a suspicious material let’s report it.

I’m glad to know that Zen found out and reported to Google and they removed the copycat blog.

I have new recommended blogs/sites that I’ve stumbled across, and highly recommend that you all take note of what they’re posting.

* My Abandonware – http://www.myabandonware.com If you are looking for an old game here is place to start.  Games from 1980 to 2002.

* FreeSMUG – http://www.freesmug.org/start If you’re looking for Open Source software that is still available to your Mac PowerPC, then here is place to stop by and take a look around.  Graphic section is really good!

* MacOS9Lives – http://www.macos9lives.com This blog will definitely will bring you back to the roots. I can see you taking your G3/G4 machine out of the closet and powering it back on. Mac OS 9 Lives (just saying).
