Finally took the time to set up my old iMac for offline computing. Plan to use it as a jukebox and PIM manager so my phone stops sucking me in so much.
It is a Graphite iMac G3, with matching Que! Fire drive, and a Palm T2.
I upgraded the iMac with and SSD after maxing out the Ram. The Que! Drive is original to when I used this computer new. The slot loading drives on these early iMacs are rather unreliable and I got tired of replacing it.
There's a place in San Francisco called Envelop where you buy a ticket to sit in a mostly dark room with only a handful of people, listening to an album start to finish on a finely calibrated audio system. Cell phones aren't allowed and you're asked to not talk or disrupt.
It's such a unique way to enjoy full albums where you dedicated time to do nothing but that. Last night I went to listen to BT's "This Binary Universe". I think I'll prioritize going more often.
