That's awesome-- it's great to hear someone "pulling out a plum" once in a while.

Keep us posted on what you're doing with it!

On that note is there anyway to tell if you are buying a hot Mac as seen a few I am interested in but not 100% if it is hot or not.

Does macs not have serial numbers or the like that dodgy ones can be traced?

Tiger runs efficiently on a 500mhz G3? Perhaps I should look into one of those then, hehe.
