Mr. Murbot, I fear you may be suffering from a <a href="http://www.biologicalunhappiness.com/mental_health/compulsive_shopping.htm" target="_blank">Compulsive Shopping</a> disorder, most commonly associated with women and shoes, but in your case it's Apple Macs. On page 7 of this thread there's a G4 iMac, on page 8 a G4 PowerBook (with Airport), on page 11 an iBook, and on page 17 yet another iBook (this time without Airport, but with a wireless router instead). For the sake of your family and friends, may I suggest you seek professional help, before it's too late?

Did a big upgrade on my PC (PIII600 512RAM). Swapped out the Voodoo5 (may a god grant rest to her soul) and replaced it with a Radeon 7500 with dual output support.

Then I picked up a couple of NEC 1545v's and Im in heaven. So easy on the eyes... It also works well to swap the monitor cable over to the iBook so I have side by side PC/Mac.

<a href="http://homepage.mac.com/imcfly/PhotoAlbum30.html" target="_blank">new pics</a>

2048 x768 is cool. I hardly even notice the bevel on these monitors they are so thin. Now I just need to paint that room...


Later y'all

New member to my setup

A BRAND NEW Sony LCD





Got it off from eBay. I actually wasn't planning to get it but the deal was just too good and that would be stupid not to go for it. It's sealed in the box and the seller also locates in Vancouver! That means I don't have to pay for shipping.

Guess the price.

$300!

Also in the same duo-grey tone as my CRT. Matching setup. Can't complain

And the second video card I bidded from eBay also arrived today. Costs me $10.

Xmas is coming early

Didn't Murbot already have a Dual 1GHz PowerMac before? Wtf is going on, here...
post #654 of 725
OK...It was cool to see for awhile, but damn Murbot...you do have something screwed up.

What's the average length of stay for a mac at your place? I see that you don't actually use it except to take a pic and then get rid of it...

Do you sell them? Trade them in? What kind of reseller takes your trades? I mean, surely you lose some money on the deal!

I've come to the conclusion that Murbot is a one man Apple reseller in his own right, the only difference being he opens the boxes and plays, sorry tests, the equipment before selling it on.

He must single handedly account for a significant percentage of the traffic on eBay.

He sells them on eBay and usually doesn't lose any money.
post #659 of 725
I did have an 867 ages ago, but my last tower was a single 800.

My last 2 computers were the G4 700 eMac, and most recently the G3 700 iBook.

I have started doing more "work" with them, that's the reason I dumped the chicklet. I was ALWAYS kicking the crap out of it - it couldn't keep up to me - and I'm not exactly a power user. A day of heavy Photoshop and Illustrator almost made me put my fist through the damn thing.

So yeah, my first dual processor G4. Should be like quite a speed jump from the iBook.

I'm keeping this one forEVAR.

Oh yeah, lose money? Me? MUAHAHAHAHAHA Doesn't happen, dude. I get insane prices when I buy these things, and always do extremely well selling them.

We're also buying our first digital video camera for Christmas this year, that's the other reason I needed to change - editing video. The poor iBook would have been tossed against a wall for sure.

Murbot: "F*CK! This tower is so loud! I can't stand it!"


January 2003

Murbot: "I just realized that I don't have any talent on video stuff. I think I should just go back to the iBook. It's good enough for my need."


February 2003

Murbot: "Ar.....I want to try doing some audio stuff and iBook isn't able to do it. But I still want portability....I am getting a PowerBook"


March 2003

Murbot: "I am selling my PowerBook....but I don't know what I am going to pick. HELP ME DECIDE!"

Maybe you should start being a eBay buy/sell agent for the rest of us.

And Leonis... <img src="graemlins/lol.gif" border="0" alt="[Laughing]" />
post #662 of 725
Ha, funny you should mention that. A guy at a computer store here was telling a guy about me, and now he's emailing me about it. He wants me to sell his eMac on eBay for him, and I'll get a cut of it.

I'm getting famous. (or infamous)

No, he said when Murby is BUYING them, not selling them. Everybody knows you can get more for something than it's worth by selling it in an eBay auction... but we want to know how Murbot gets his Macs cheap, so we can all be mini-murbots.. Erp, I've said too much.

Well? Murbot?

Now I include my dialogue

=================================================

December 2002

Murbot: "F*CK! This tower is so loud! I can't stand it!"

Leonis: "See? I told you so. Those Mikey towers are sh!t"

January 2003

Murbot: "I just realized that I don't have any talent on video stuff. I think I should just go back to the iBook. It's good enough for my need."

Leonis: "I know you can't do video. I have told you that a long time ago! You are again dumping money on something that's worse?"

Murbot: "Yeap. But the iBook really is good enough for me"

Leonis: "Whatever, it's your choice. Buy me a LCD display!"


February 2003

Murbot: "Ar.....I want to try doing some audio stuff and iBook isn't able to do it. But I still want portability....I am getting a PowerBook"

Leonis: "Ha. I thought you only know how to move boxes at storage "


March 2003

Murbot: "I am selling my PowerBook....but I don't know what I am going to pick. HELP ME DECIDE!"

Leonis: "No comment, sorry "

Episode III


April 2003

Murbot: "Help. I need buy a new Mac. I am now Mac less and hate to use my PC. Help me decide which Mac I should get!"

Leonis: "I don't care what you are buying. I only care about when you are going to buy me a LCD display "

Murbot: "**************"

Murbot: "I am going to get the GHz eMac. That's a nice little home machine"


May 2003

Murbot: "I sold it on eBay. Now I have the cash. Tell me what I should get"

Leonis: "PowerMac 970"

Murbot: "But I don't need 64bit computing"

Leonis: "Well. What you want is NOT what you need. You have been buying a lot of stuff you don't need "

Murbot: "I will get it"

June 2003

Murbot: "Oh my f*cking God! My kids hammered my tower and it's broke! "

Leonis: "Congrats! Now you have an excuse to buy a new one "

Murbot: "But my wife told me she will leave me if I am buying a new machine "


........then Murbot will have to live his life with the broken PowerMac tower until the end of 2003. But who the **** knows what Murbot is going to do. He maybe getting new machines without letting his wife know

Neither am I. Pretty good at psycho-funny, but not practical-funny (i.e, not involving stuff blowing up and people being maimed horribly with objects wielded by stupid people, with a few crazed pygmies on the side.)

AI looks like s*** in IE.

Nice to see someone who doesn't even attempt to clean up their desk before taking a pic.

Much like mine looks now.

Gotta love that stray can of spray paint.

Well, I don't use IE anymore, I use chimera. However, IE was the only browser I could run with stability (although i never tried OW) on my upgraded B&W G3. When I moved to a QuickSilver, I simply moved my 100GB hard drive, hence having only IE on my quicksilver. Don't worry, i've since downloaded chimera and 0.6 runs with enough stability that it is my only browser. I'd try OW, but I don't want to pay for a browser.

Yeah, I long ago gave up on cleaning my desk.

There are NO limitations on it if you don't pay.

The only differences are a small nag screen that pops up once every dozen or so times you launch it and a light "unregistered" watermark that appears on pages after they sit idle for a few minutes. Shake the mouse or hit a key on the keyboard and the watermark immediately disappears. The nag screen is actually kind of funny with its little jokes.
