Today is a homework day (yes I’ve got schoolwork), but I did take a little bit of time to ready another computer for the Quake LAN. WIth the addition of Violet Beauregarde (iMac G3 350 MHz slot loader), the LAN now stands at 4-player. Nice thing about the slot-loading iMacs is that they are somewhat easier in regards to putting in the computer battery. Nice hatch on the backside, even though you got to have very flexible fingers (or in my case a pliers), to get the battery in the socket which is slightly away from the opening. It still beats having to take practically half the computer apart as is the case with the original tray loading iMac G3 computers. Past this Mac, I’ve still got two tray-loaders left (one of which is the currently broken one). The rest are slot-loading, and depending on how they turn out, I may through in some other Macintosh model computers. This may be done due to time constraints, as two of the G3 iMacs need a thorough overhaul, including reformatting, OS loading (cloning), and testing (more than on ones I’ve used in the past). Time will tell if this will be an ‘all iMac year’ or not.
That is it for now. Time for schoolwork, and I have a game (D&D) going on tomorrow, so no show work till later next week.
