I just put an airport card into Granny, so she’s up and running on the internets now. 🙂 Removing the keyboard to put the card in was one of the coolest things I’ve seen…not in the sense that it was difficult or something, but in the sense that it was just very smart to have the keyboard pop out like that. If Chip’s keyboard popped out like that, I could have easily checked and cleaned it out when the juice incident occurred.
I’m also using Safari, which is new to me, but it doesn’t seem that odd at the moment. I am noticing that the computer is slower than I’m used to, but it’s supposed to be. I think this model is at least 4 or 5 years old, and it’s running Panther. That’d be like taking Tigger and throwing XP on him and expecting him to be as fast as Chip. 🙂
So, the good news is that now that I’ve got the net running on here, I can do the checking I really want to do, namely:
* Can I get BridgeBase to work on here?
* Am I happier with the OS than with Windows? (So far, yes…I’m a sucker for visual effects, and the thought of running the monster that is Vista to get them…)
* Do I notice any problems running any of the stuff I normally do?
And then the last thing will be to wipe and re-install Chip, using Granny here as my primary computer in the interim. 🙂 Wheee!
