Pour one on the ground for the departed. Yesterday, my ibook G4 went to live on the farm so to speak – my mom will now be using him for non-processor intensive tasks like email and making playlists for her ipod. The little guy had been with me since 2004, making him my longest-lived computer to-date. He survived a broken trackpad, a fried motherboard, a lightning strike that cooked the power daughter-board, a busted hard drive, several road trips, the great domestic realignment of 2007, numerous flights and the accompanying trip through the x-ray machine, a blizzard, several moves, and of course my clumsy ass.
Stay well little fella.
