I've been closing out multiple business websites and telling them they need to find another web person, because I can't keep doing them anymore...  :(

That's strange.  I don't know what the problem might be.  I had to log into GoDaddy today for a business website and didn't have any problem.  Wish I could help, Neil, but there's nothing I can do on your account...

Huh!  Neil gave me the link to the new site, and I checked it out yesterday.  Looking good.  But went to look at it again today and can't get there.  What do you think, Neil?

I'm lazy. What a crazy looking boat anchor  :P might try to add iLife 4 to it ? Garage Band ?

It was worth $10 as it is just to examine  8) This is a very limited computer to upgrade the processor would be something for a masochist , (Yep that's the same unit as this in the article) so it will be a another conversation piece here in the lab. Updating the OS would not do much for it either ... imho sans running a few programs like Reaper , which run better on a $20 PC with XP  Only 2 usb 1 ports is lame 2 firewire ports are usless but if you have a $200 Firewire interface  :o the cpu would be the bottleneck itself .....  :P . I'm biased but this computer is a dog compared to the XP computers of it's era , mostly because of it's unbreakable OS. Great for the kids but too tame for reckless adults. 

 The neat thing is  it runs walks Garageband 1  8) ...... er ..... roughly  :-X
 3 instruments with it's softsynth loops  .....bogs ..... it  ............. down pretty good. I could see someone creating some interesting tunes with it though ....... as long as your not in a hurry. Editing really is slow. If your bored it's better than band in a box if your wanting to goof around with an electronic sideman. It is worth $10 just to play with the Garageband. I'd recommend a newer model to fully use Garageband

       It's too noisy to record with a mic , in the same room with the tower. but , it does hook up to the old Tascam 122 Frontier usb 1 interface pretty well lol ..... just did that to see if it would work.   ;D
