Hardware first:

There is 10GB of RAM, installed as 4x 2GB DIMMS and 2x 1GB DIMMS. This leaves two slots free which will probably be filled with a 4GB kit from OWC as they still sell new RAM for this machine and give a good guarantee with it. I might even replace the 1GB DIMMS with 2GB ones eventually to push the thing all the way to 16GB, though I am undecided on whether to bother with more RAM now. 10GB is enough even for a heavy task switcher like me.

The graphics card is the standard GeForce 6600 that shipped by default with this generation of G5. I run a dual monitor setup with one Dell 23-inch 2048x1152 screen (16x9) and one Dell 17 inch 1280x1024 (5x4) screen.

The SuperDrive is currently the one that shipped with the machine but I will pull the drive from the dead Quad G5 eventually and put that in. This is an upgrade, a Pioneer DVR-110D which is both faster and more reliable than the drive that Apple supplied with these machines. The DVR-110D is supported by both Apple disk burning and Toast so it doesn't cause any trouble using it.

The machine has two 1.5TB SATA hard drives which I use to mirror each other. They are partitioned so I can run Tiger (which is what I usually boot into) and Leopard and also keep my data on separate partitions from the system. Each 3D work project I create adds another 2GB-6GB of data to the drives so in a few months I will probably replace these drives with 2TB drives. I highly recommend the dual drive mirror setup because if your boot drive fails the machine will just boot from the other disk, and you can then replace the dead drive and clone back to the same configuration. I always keep a suitable spare drive (sometimes several) in the cupboard.

I have a Wacom tablet installed via an interface that adapts serial port hardware to USB ports. It works beautifully so I don't care about the adapter being a bit ugly. The tablet is an oversized A4 which is a size I don't think Wacom make any more. The active area is square with each side the length of the long side of a sheet of A4 paper.

There is no bluetooth or wireless network installed. Fine with me I prefer wired connections for their speed and reliability.

Systems and Software:

I installed Tiger and ran software update. I prefer Tiger to Leopard, but I have a few Logic plug-ins that require Leopard so I have that installed too. I rarely use those plug-ins now so I hardly ever boot into Leopard but I like to retain the choice. There is also a Classic partition because I have some truly ancient software that is still used for my 3D work.

For work I have been using an old version of Blender 3D, plus Photoshop CS2, BBEdit Lite, Poser 8, etc. I have Mellel as my word processor. It's an old version because the current version won't run on a Power Mac, but it is superb nevertheless. My novel is now a little over 150,000 words (roughly half finished :shock: ) and Mellel can edit that in one document without the corruption that would ensue if you dared to repeatedly edit a document that size in Word. Yes, I know you can divide it up into chapters and use a master document, but in Word you have to, in Mellel you don't need to divide long documents so I don't.

Toast 9 is installed.

As a hobby I write music so I have Logic Express 8 installed as well as a few add-on sample libraries, mainly for making orchestral music. I do also have Garageband installed as it is easier sometimes if I am writing a piece for solo piano, it loses the complexity of Logic and lets me concentrate on the tune more easily. I grabbed most of the Apple Jam Packs off eBay for silly prices so I have a lot of software instruments available. Some of the Jam Packs were really good value for money at full price and I got them for daft prices like $8.90 for the cheapest one I bought and about $30 for the most expensive — naturally the expensive one was the Jam Pack Symphony Orchestra which I now don't use much because I bought better libraries. :roll:

My browser is TenFourFox because it is the best one I can find for most purposes. I do occasionally use the old Omniweb, but not much now. It has been abandoned though the creators won't admit it yet.

I have Bryce 7 Pro (often known as Bryce 7 Prone-to-crashes) installed as it is fun to play around with. Don't use it often as Blender is vastly superior but Bryce is a lovely toy when you are in the right mood.

I have a few Aleph One games installed and still play them occasionally. My favourite is Marathon Rubicon, still my favourite computer game ever. I have Doom3 which is also fun now and then.

Instead of using QuickTime player I use an old version of VLC because it plays videos more smoothly with less CPU resources used.

I have iStat Menus installed to monitor fan speeds and temperatures, Onyx for housekeeping. I use HimmelBar as well.

I will come back and edit this if I remember anything else that is installed. The next post will ask a question.

What software do you use on your G5 or other PowerPC Mac? Is there any free software you find essential? Any paid software still available that you think might be worth the money? Remember that eBay can still turn up install CDs or DVDs too.

10GB on my quad G5 was plenty, never got close to using it all.

I'd avoid bigger DIMMs in the inner 2 slots due to heat on the mobo issues.

Oh, that reminds me, I forgot to install WMV player...

Thanks for that reminder!

I did use up all 9.5GB on the quad quite frequently because I was often making 3D graphics on it, so the 10GB I now have in the Dual 2.3 will be full sometimes. When running Photoshop with large texture maps, plus Blender 3D, Poser, Graphic Converter, and BBEdit Lite and switching between them all the memory is quickly eaten up.

The image attached, still a Work-In-Progress, is what I was working on today on the Dual 2.3. All the music gear is my own models, the figures I bought. They were posed in Poser 8 then exported to disk and imported into Bryce 7 Pro for rendering. Today I added the guitarist, the band needs a bass player and then the image will be complete. As it is quite a lot of work I'll add the bass player another day.

Yeah, I never did much 3D with the G5, I wanted to, but so much going on. So that likely would've consumed 10 GB easily.

The point of posting the unfinished image is just that a G5 can do serious work, even now. I still use mine as a work machine.

Thank you, I hope it will be even better when finished. The lighting is based on real lighting I was able to examine a while back, set up to emphasise the singer and make her draw the viewer's eye first. Just by making her the brightest part of the image makes that happen naturally, but there are other patches of light that should draw the eye to explore the rest of the image.

I use Fetch for FTP transfers, the latest versions are Intel-only but as of a couple years ago you could download an old version that was compatible.

Microsoft Office 2008 is the last version that's PPC compatible.

TenFourFox is okay for web browsing, though sometimes it's a little balky at surfing more "modern" websites (read lots of extraneous crap), and since Mozilla has completely phased out all non-web extension plugins off their site, you have no ability to install or update a normal ad blocker extension. Instead he rolled something up on his own that kind of works but isn't quite as good as a full ABP or uBO extension at making boggy websites useful.

You will need to update your certificate store if you're using anything that depends on WebKit (e.g. Office 2008 or Safari), as it doesn't understand many newer certificates. You can do this via Keychain Access but you'll need to hunt down the intermediate certificate for the provider that's causing trouble, which can sometimes be a problem. I think I made about 90% of my issues go away just by importing GoDaddy's intermediate ssl certs. The PPC Safari project (I can't think of its real name) includes a utility to update a lot of the certificate store as well as adjust other Safari-related settings, but it's not a one-stop-shop panacea, you'll still have to do some stuff on your own.

I use SuperDuper for cloning, I think CCC didn't implement a Smart Update type feature until they were Intel-only.

SuperDuper! is what I use for backing up my boot partitions and for updating the external backup. Thanks for the info about Safari, if I decide to try and rescue it I might go that route but to be honest I still find TenFourFox adequate. It has Add-Block Plus installed and various other add-ons.

Leopard WebKit! That's the name of the "PPC Safari" project. Basically a port of the current or near-current WebKit development code to Leopard.

It was a sad day when Apple stopped publishing WebKit in PPC form. I still have the absolute last nightly build of it that they published lurking around someplace. For years after Apple had stopped supporting G5s they were publishing those builds until one day someone in Apple realized what they were doing and made them stop.

I just got my G5 back to working order and poked around looking at apps.

If you can find Lingon 2.1.1 its damn helpful for keeping an eye on launchd processes.

Sound Studio 3 is a slightly more modern replacement for the eternal Sound Edit Pro.

I have a copy of VLC.app version 1.0.5 in /Applications and VLC 2.app version 2.0.10. VLC 1.0.5 was the last version that Handbrake 0.9.4 supported for CSS decryption. If you don't care about turning DVDs into MP4s then you can just have VLC 2.0.10 as VLC.app. As I recall the next couple revsions of Handbrake had hopelessly broken PPC support which they responded to by removing all support for PPC.

I would be lost without BBEdit. There was BBEdit Lite and TextWrangler, apparently the last version of TW to support PPC was 3.6.something, but I bought and upgraded BBEdit to the last version that supported PPC, which I think is 9.6.3.

GraphicConverter 7 is the last PPC compatible version but I have 6 installed too because I prefer its smaller, cluttered interface.

iTunes 10.6.3 is the newest version of iTunes that supports PPC.

Ah, thanks for the information. Leopard webkit is a great idea, I might even have a reason to boot into Leopard more often with that.

I am very happy with Graphic Converter 6.7.9 which is the one that was made free for PPC users, it runs on Tiger and Leopard and I don't have to get used to two different versions if I use it on both. Version 7 runs on 10.5 to 10.7 only so I ignored it. What changed in the user interface with 7+?

From what I recall the interface was kind of dumbed down a bit. Every icon became larger and some options ended up getting combined behind new menu options. Some options I just plain never found, so they were either tucked away really well or were removed entirely. GC is one of those shareware programs I bought a license for ages and ages ago and just kept upgrading right until 7.

Speaking of upgrades, Photoshop CS2 is the last version that supports PPC. For a while Adobe published the serial-number free installation media for CS2 on a server that didn't require you to log in before downloading. They brought down the CS2 activation servers and this was their way of keeping their customers placated.

No, Photoshop CS2, CS3 and CS4 all support PowerPC, and all three will work in both Tiger and Leopard on PowerPC. I think CS2 and CS3 will work in Panther too if you have it. I have CS2 and have in the distant past used CS3 and CS4 on other people's G4 and G5 Macs. If you take a look at the Wikipedia page on Photoshop it makes it clear that CS2, CS3 and CS4 all support PowerPC and my own experience suggests more old Power Macs can run it than most people think. I think in the misty depths of my memory I may have used CS3 on a blue and white G3 with Panther installed, though that might have been a G3 with Tiger on it as I am not clear on when the OS was updated on that G3, before or after Photoshop work was moved from a Power Mac 7300 running Photoshop 6...

Oh the memories...

Edited for spelling and grammar — twice.

Actually I think CS4 may require Leopard or higher, but it does work on PowerPC as I have used it on G4 and G5 Macs of various flavours.

I kind of tuned out of Photoshop after 5 or 6, they keep adding features and I keep on not using them. :D

Photoshop can do so much that nobody uses all of its capabilities. I have even seen somebody show an Adobe Photoshop demonstrator how to use one feature at a computer show. The Adobe guy was using Photoshop for a living and demonstrating it to people regularly for years, yet didn't know it all.

The healing brush tool came in sometime after Photoshop 7 or CS(1) and is a feature that most people could use, so I'd recommend learning about it if you haven't.

The fact that I still find CS2 exceeds my needs says a lot about Photoshop. I could use some of the improvements in CS3 or CS4, but I don't need them enough to be willing to pay the usual eBay price for a copy.

As an aside, that Power Mac 7300/200 was given to me after they replaced it with a G3, and I remember being delighted by how powerful it was compared to my previous computer, a 7200/90. My first two Macs were given to me by that company when they finished with them, the 7200, the 7300 and then a friend gave me the blue and white G3 when he upgraded to a G5. The G5 Quad I bought myself.
