One More Reason My Wife Hates Me

Here's the first post from the couch in the living room.

I got the old G3 out of the basement and started tinkering around with it this morning. After about seven hours I finally got the old beige box to digest OS 10.2.6 (I'm being specific because I relied on a number of posts from people trying to accomplish the same thing I was -- maybe I can help someone with an old mac). That's when I got the idea to throw a wireless card into it. After two more hours, I also got that to work.

So now I have a very slow machine that's not really good for anything but surfing the Web or posting to the blog.


I tried to think of a way that I could do it without spending any money. My original idea was to convert the G3 into a DVR. People have done it, it's just a little more involved than I thought. So I compromised by settling for just getting the thing to work on the TV.

$200 later, I'm sitting on the couch with a wireless keyboard and mouse listening to Deb gripe about the money I spent.

I don't care. This shit is cool.
