    68K/early PPC with onboard AAUI 100mbps ethernet?

    The Mac was never going to be a gaming platform due to Apple's apathy towards it post-II and the Mac's poor suitability towards gaming. Big framebuffers + no acceleration features like sprites + slow CPU + slow I/O between those = bad gaming platform. For the audio you got, mono was a silly limitation, but good enough and enough to compete.

    CPU Upgrade / Overclocking Centris 650

    The ones that are successful do.

    Old Mac, Modern Internet

    Seriously people; setting up stunnel or an HTTPS stripping/converting proxy or just using big boy machines to do the net work for you is the future. (Or living in some kind of VPN/LAN full of retro stuff.)

    1920x1200@24bit on G4 under OS9: available options?

    FWIW, I run 24bpp 1080p just dandy on an OG GeForce DDR. It also worked on a TNT2, but was quite poky at it. Both had a crisp VGA output at 1080p.
  6. Relevant jwz article.

    Apple Module Identification Manual Jun 1994

    Really depends on Jason Scott not-dying and steady donations.

    Clamshell iBook!

    I personally prefer Word 6, but I believe you can get translators for Word 6 or ClarisWorks that let you save Word 97 files - which modern Word supports for sure.
  9. Probably won't be very useful, seeing as Classilla already exists, the 1998 build of Mozilla is *extremely* primitive (IIRC, it's quite broken and below NS4 in capability.) It'd be a cool exercise anyways though. If you want something practical to port though, NetSurf seems like a good candidate.

    MLA Forum Access from Older Macs

    Guys, Telnet's kinda lame. It's cool if you have no TCP stack and just a modem, but half the fun is using graphical dinguses that talk with simple and standard protocols to servers.

    Screw the web. Make NNTP Great Again.

    Javascript slows down a G4

    9 is a lot more fun and retro though. X will just make it seem like a slower modern computer.

    Javascript slows down a G4

    JavaScript slows down far newer and faster machines. Your best bet would be aggressive NoScript usage to only whitelist the bare minimum. (Which is a good idea on any system. Or just not use a G4 as a daily driver, but as a retro thing.)

    Wiki/Pages article ideas

    I mean, you could use either an SSL stripping tunnel or proxy too...

    A crazy idea: original 2001 iPod on modern Mac?

    Type C is pretty handy even without Thunderbolt 3. Obviously, everything is better with Thunderbolt 3, but Alpine Ridge costs money, board space, and power. Hopefully the new chipsets for Coffee Lake integrate it, and that Intel's royalty-free program expands its reach, especially onto AMD platforms.
