sr2d0t, what size is the GT you have posted in the picture thread? Is the GTB aluminium? I ask cuz I just snagged that mystery GT on eBay and the seller didn't have a pic but said that the frame is aluminium and that the top tube slopes towards the headtube, it sounds like it might be a GTB. Total impulse buy and I guess the old saying is true, red wine and eBay don't mix

Yeah!
On the new intel macs you can run Windows XP with a program called boot camp.

No emulation, it runs full speed.

Two of my friends have MacBook Pros.

So now you can buy PC games and play them on your Mac .

Slient Hill, Doom III whatever, and it runs smooooth

Cross yer fingers and hope its a Pulse. Look very carefully on the down tube just below the head tube for an Easton stamp in the tube. If its there it is a Pulse and one hell of a bike.

So I determined that the Mac I have is a really old model. No USB. Thanks for the links. It is a "Kanga" model and was discontinued in 98'. Anyone know of an old Mac's home where it will get the care it needs? Seriously tho...I don't have the knowledge or patience to deal with a Mac this old. Anyone use it? Freebie..Freebie!!

Op: Yea I'm riding down.

Jet S: I swear I had the CRAZIEST dream last night. I dreamed that I saw your ebay auction and saw a picture of your mysterious GT. And It was a bunch of pipes welded together and the whole mess converged together at the BB which was a propane tank. And I remember trying really hard to stop laughing and I couldn't bear to tell you that what you won didn't resemble ANYTHING of a bike.

if you can't find a good home, there are places like Reboot that will give you a tax receipt for it if you donate it to them. They recycle/refurbish/etc computers for use in the community. I donated a couple of old PCs to them last year.

edit: didn't see Ronin's answer.

edit2: anyone want to buy a 19" crt?

It's yers for the taking. I will bring it down to the shop tomorrow..you can pick it up any time you like. I can't help but wonder whatmight be on the harddrive. It used to be Steevo's from Sum 41.
Asian alcohol eh? I was drinking at a buddy's place a number of years ago and he had this bottle of Chinese booze. There was not a lick of English on the label but it had a gutted lizard fermenting in the bottle. We called it "Lizard Juice" We drank it but then worried that the label might say something like "for decoration only"
