hey check this page here
if u can help me track down any of those kernel debug kits from the ADC developer cds if you haev any of the ones im missing would be a big help
thanks

also check my adc mirror ive been making here

basicalyl apple has removed all PPC stuff from the apple developer site entirely
not sure when this happened im sure in the last 4 years sometime tho

the most important ones im after obviouisly are 10.3.9 (ppc) / 10.4.11 (ppc) / 10.5.8 (ppc)
i only have the 10.4.11 for intel at the moment

this kind of thing really bothers me; because as a web developer/designer you arent supposed to BREAK LINKS
and REMOVE CONTENT the whole point of making new websites + adding information is not to obfuscate + delete the previous existing links
that other people may still depend on; it used to be that companeis would pay designers/developers like myself extra to go out of our way to find ways of avoiding breaking old existing content; but nowdays companies just delete old websites at a whim; and dont think of the impact.. i hate it; i hate the way youtube removes users accounts for copyright aswell; its so abusive + disrespectful to their own users; the internet in general; if you told me in 2004 that it would end up this way i wouldnt have believed it; everyone was so all about independance + anti-corporate control; everyone used to quite the book "no-logo" naomi klein https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/No_Logo its disgusting where we are at; everyone has their heads so far up their own asses they only care about their own money making agendas;  anyway; lets try to get these files back in public domain; for people who wish to still do their own development on ppc versions of OSX; even if it is only for hobby purposes;

1.25 vs 1.33 lol
is the performance increase really worth all that effort? in swapping cpus?

my 1.25 will most likely stay a 1.25;
stock configuration is the lesser headache, imho.

The 1.33 is 6% faster than the 1.25, It have 2Mb of L3 cache which increases around 5% the overall CPU performance. So we have a 11% faster CPU. OK at this point It's a personal option because an 11% increase in performance it isn't so much ...
But if we overclock it to 1.5 Ghz ( which is a walk in the park ) we have an extra 13% of speed increase, So we have an 24% faster CPU than a stock 1.25, which in my opinion is actually worthwhile.

The 1.42 GHz models featured Firewire 800 and there is software available to run OS 9.2.2 on them here. I’ve several of these machines but still prefer the “lesser” 1.25 GHz models. Suppose that it really depends upon what your primary intended end-use actually is because the 1.25 models seem to run OS 9.2.2 easier, or with fewer “hiccups”.

Hi, thanks for the reply. I was thinking of the last generation of 1.42 GHZ modelss, that could boot OS 9. I figured they would ahve taken the problems with earlier models into account.

On separate note, can anybody identify this Mac, and advise on whether it's worth $50 sans harddrive.

Firewire enclosure is oxuf934ssa.  ;)

No real security in OS 9; boot without extensions, then turn off or delete Multi user control panel, trash preferences; Think I used to do that by booting to an external... but should work on the same drive

Step 1) Run the Pismo Diagnostics via CD image here:

Step 2) Check the chipset on the external FW enclosure controller board (if possible),
Pismos do not normally have these issues, so try an old Lacie or equivalent OS9 era FW enclosure

you can put a 1.42 into an OS9-only MDD and it works fine. Ive been using one like that for years now. if you manage to find one with an all-copper heatsink, there's basically zero heat problems with that combo.

Yes, good point, but the Mactron 1.5 (1.33 Overclock single) stills runs cooler than a dual, and OS9 in almost all instances; won't take advantage of a Dual CPU :)
