  • Apple G5 Specs Leaked: Another Webmaster Fired

    How many Apple webmasters get fired before major product announcements?  MacNN points out the apparent goof and posts the specs that showed up at the Apple Store:

    • 1.6GHz, 1.8GHz, or Dual 2GHz PowerPC G5 processors
    • Up to 1GHz processor bus
    • Up to 8GB of DDR SDRAM
    • Fast Serial ATA hard drives
    • AGP 8X Pro graphics options from NVIDIA or ATI
    • Three PCI or PCI-X expansion slots
    • Three USB 2.0 ports
    • One FireWire 800, two FireWire 400 ports
    • Bluetooth & AirPort Extreme ready
    • Optical and analog in and out

    Who can say if these specs are accurate, but either way it’ll be an interesting WWDC.

  • Uptime Lost!

    No!  My local Linux box with the most uptime (280+ days) didn’t withstand the thunderstorm.  It’s on a UPS that must not have been able to handle it.

    Perhaps I’ll move it to its own UPS in the next day or so, since uptime isn’t much of an issue now.
