Why on earth would you make your P800/P900 look like a Pocket PC? That’s just wrong, and a little nausiating.

I’d really love to know more about how it works, but here is the jist from Dan’s site:
Although I am keeping the source-code private for the time being, I can and shall devulge the basics. This page interfaces to a MySQL database from which a web-service feeds. The iMac parses the requests and then pushes the data through a maze of shell, perl, python and applescripts. The result is returned in the form of a PNG to the requester’s browser window.
Glue, baby! Cool stuff, Dan.
The latest version of XPostFacto has initial support for booting Panther on older Macs:
XPF now includes limited support for Panther (Mac OS X 10.3) on the 7300 – 9600 (and friends), as well as the Wallstreet Powerbooks and Beige G3 (with some limitations related to video). The original Powerbook G3 (Kanga) is not yet supported, but I will be working on it.
Of course we’re still in Alpha release mode, so it may work for you and it may not. I sent in $10 to fund development a few weeks ago, as eventually I should ne able to boot a recent version of OSX on my hopped up G4’d 8500.
Here’s a synopsis of the latest regularly scheduled CERT Summary:
Since the last regularly scheduled CERT summary, issued in September 2003 (CS-2003-03), we have documented vulnerabilities in the Microsoft Windows Workstation Service, RPCSS Service, and Exchange. We have also documented vulnerabilities in various SSL/TLS implementations, a buffer overflow in Sendmail, and a buffer management error in OpenSSH. We have received reports of W32/Swen.A, W32/Mimail variants, and exploitation of an Internet Explorer vulnerability reported in August of 2003.
