Software development, Cocoa, Objective-C, life. Stuff like that.


Oh My God! (Excuse the expression, but you'll find-out why in a second...)

Now, I know some people can be daft about computers, you know, overdoing the advocacy thing. But this really takes the biscuit. Someone called “Andy” was lucky enough to have his parents buy him a PowerMac G5, which is a thoroughly excellent machine, and quite expensive to boot. This article tells you what Andy did to his lovely PowerMac G5.

It's blasphemous.

I mean, ruining such a nice machine.

If he wanted a PC, all he needed was a case. Instead of which, he did that!

Eugh. I think it's going to take me some time to get over the shock.

If anyone else out there is equally insane and is thinking of doing the same, I'll quite happily swap your new G5 for a PC case. That way you won't have to do any DIY.

Update: it seems that the G5 PC thing was a hoax. The guy that claimed he'd done it actually got an empty G5 shell from somewhere :-)
