It has shipped! I should have it in two days (does Airborne deliver on Saturdays?). Incidentally, 1 GB PC3200 modules from RAMJet come with little heat sinks clipped onto them (this should explain why I got "only" 512 MB in the config below).

Now I just have to figure out what the heck I'm going to do with my dual 800 (2x120 GB, 1.5 GB, Zip, SuperDrive). Hmmm. Any ideas?

  1. Dedicated Halo server (once it ships)? =)

  2. screw you erik, i've got another month before my G5 ships.

  3. Sell the zip, the superdrive, and one of the hard drives. Give it only power and ethernet, then stuff it deep into a closet to be the bitch (for distributed building). 🙂

  4. When did you order yours? Did you order via ADC?

  5. I'm going to say "no comment" to your question, Brian, simply because that could cause problems if someone, somewhere, ordered his before or after me and did or didn't get it before or after me. AFAIK, I got it right in line with other people's order dates.

    FWIW, my "on or before" date was always 9/30/03. I never had an August ship date.

  6. Congratulations on the new G5 Erik! I would agree the extra box might work well as a distributed build node. You could probably install a game server on it as well. Write some AppleScripts to allow toggling ether service on/off as you need resources.

  7. I'm going to agree with Rudy on this one. Screw you 🙂 On the other hand, I'm going to say screw you to Rudy as well, because I'm not getting a G5. And that sucks!

    Someone want to give me money to buy a G5? 😀

  8. Congrats.

    But see RangerRick's blog for the likelihood of your '2 days' really being 2 days.

  9. Cool! At least somebody's getting a 2 gig G5. And no, Airbone does not ship on Saturday unless they paid extra for it. You're gonna have to wait until Monday.

  10. Uh, I'm getting my computer today. As in the next day. Why? Priority Overnight. So shove a sock in your piehole, folks! Neener neener. I'll have it by noon today. That's 11 hours from now, tossers! 🙂

  11. I've still yet to take the G5 out of its box (been busy, really) since I got it on Friday, but I've now got the...

  12. You're a lucky, lucky man Erik.
