A new auction is up. This one is a 1.25 Ghz G4 mini. It has the 128 GB SSD upgrade and a new stick of 1GB RAM. It's listed with speakers/mouse/power adapter. It's in good condition.

It's a 5-day auction with no reserve.

Also, has the Forum link changed position in the navigation? I feel like it should be given a little more priority than at the end of the nav?

I've been using the new theme for a while and I'm a fan. It is very white but so are the majority of websites out there. It's great we have the ability to change themes, I didn't know this was possible until the mention of the new theme in a previous post. Perhaps the theme changing option could be made more obvious somewhere on the site for users who prefer darker themes?

Thanks for your work Knez and Bolkonskij!

@DieHard have you got any videos or recordings of your performances? Fallout Live sounds fantastic!

Sorry I thought I had read this topic thoroughly.

Then read it again! Conditions similar to yours were described and three solutions were discovered.

but after about 10 minutes of culture shock, I can say that the new site/theme looks so modern and amazing !
I updated the forum page in the evening, and almost went white. It's terrible, I shouted.
I'm always annoyed when browsers show a white "page" when the site loads slowly. There is so little content and so much white on this 27" monitor.
I wrote about it in iMessage to another forum member... and we grumbled like two old men, although I be much younger.  ::)

As a result, I am one of those 8 forum participants who switched to the old topic, where white is much less and my eyes don't strain.


We need a dark theme!  8)

OK, so I was doing the "old guy" rock and roll thing over the holiday weekend.  One reason it was hard to keep the site fresh was the time constraints I had in 2024 by deciding to do live music again.  The first 8 years of the site were rough, with very little sleep time between a 50+ hour a week day job, spending time with the family, and the cover band on the weekends while trying to admin the site.  So in 2019, I decided to dump the music for a while and address all things that I could not attend to by spreading myself too thin.  Mission accomplished, life got back in balance :)

Then 2024 hit, and after Covid, moving my business, and the kids becoming adults, it was time to go back to my personal drug.... music.  I finally took Knez up on his long-time offer, to take the helm.

This particular weekend was rare for me not to use my phone or computer to say hello and check into the site. I logged in here, like every Monday, at 8:30am and got transported into a different reality; but after about 10 minutes of culture shock, I can say that the new site/theme looks so modern and amazing !  This is way beyond anything I expected or even imagined.

We really should all pay homage, as I am personally grateful, to Knez and others that got us this cool Modern/Retro look up and running.  Knez has obviously put a lot of energy, thought, and time into breathing new life into the site,  And although "change" is very difficult for the human condition, it must be embraced and acknowledged.  Change will ensure survival, it always has.... so thank you Knez !

In my case, I have a DELL U2412M, it's a 16:10 aspect ratio, 24", 1920x1200 @60Hz monitor. Used with the 1.5GHz Mac mini G4 (AKA "Super mini") model.

After using these ATI Extensions, which are different from what's on both v8 and v9, I got it to recognize a lot of resolutions and frequencies, via DVI. Even 1920x1200, but only @ a frequency higher than 60Hz. But my monitor is limited to 60Hz maximum. I get a black screen if I try such higher frequencies. However, at 60Hz, I do have the option to use 1600x1200 still, which is 4:3, and it just adds some black borders to the side, but otherwise it's a pixel-native resolution that works well, as long as I configure my monitor to display everything with a 4:3 aspect ratio.
Sorry I thought I had read this topic thoroughly but missed this. This is the same issue I see. The Dell 2407WFP will only do 1920x1200@60Hz, but that resolution is not listed. So on DVI at least I am limited to 1920x1080@60 or 1920x1200@76Hz

Sure, they will work with some other monitors, but not always and not at all resolutions, nor connection variants.


i will never understand why some monitors work with a certain GPU drivers and others not, and i know that i am really lucky that i´ve chosen a mass product which seems to work under any conditions.

the pictures from ssp look like the cable or adaptor would be wired wrongly, but the resolution was supported?
Good point. I never even thought to try a different DVI cable. I will give that a go!

Let's see. I have a feeling it might be the opposite.

maybe i took your "DTP" too literally.

i am an amateur, but from what i know the compatibility situation between all these indesign and illustrator versions between 9, X and win is a terrible minefield.
so the only professional (professional as in "industry") applications always were quark 4, acrobat, and of course latex/textures. quark 4.11 still has a small relevance as file format, the others are completely outdated and incompatible to the modern world.

the creative side of visual things is not, of course. :)
