I don't think money will fix the issue.

I'd rather donate money to buy the Pfhorums a new 3371-Alpha.

WHY IS THIS A POLL?

Actually, I need a new computer too. Donate the money to me instead. I'd appreciate a new computer more than 3371-Alpha anyway.

COULD YOU STOP ASKING ME TO BUY A NEW FUCKING COMPUTER!! This is what I mean when I say this community's full of dicks! Both the Oni & Myth communities still actively support PPC (and even classic/os 9) Macs, what the fuck's your excuse?!

Is supporting os9 really supposed to be helping your case?

See, I told you Alpha wouldn't appreciate a new computer. Get me one instead; I promise that once I have it I'll immediately get started on my UE4 remake of Marathon.

Phil, do you really want to trade your wonderful iMac G4 for one of those innovative newer Macs with iOS herpes? Cause I tried them already, not impressed. Also UE4's proprietary (not to mention it's not very Mac optimized either) Shouldn't we chose a free/open source engine for a remake of a game that's it's self free & open source?

First of all, I was obviously being facetious.

Second of all, yes of course I'd like to get rid of my clunky old computer that takes a full minute to load my emails. I just can't justify spending money on a new one since it's not an actual necessity in my life.

FULL MINUTE?!! Mine only takes 15 seconds. Are you using the latest TenFourFox/Bird and/or Leopard Webkit/TenFourKit? Because if your not I suggest you upgrade now. Also they have processor & memory upgrades for your model Phil, you should check them out. Might be cheaper than buying a new machine.

15 SECONDS?!! Mine only takes 5 seconds. I was exaggerating for effect when I said a full minute (5 seconds also feels like a full minute when you just want to check your email). And I don't see any reason to buy processor upgrades and hire someone to install them when the OS isn't being supported anymore anyway.

First off, I have shit internet. The Mail/TenFourBird apps open & display a window instantaneously, however it takes time for the content it's self to actually load. Be glad yours take only 5 seconds (P.S. what's your provider so I can switch over).
Second, I upgraded the gpu on my G5 despite the lack of support. One of the best choices I ever made.

One of the best choices I ever made was cultivating a lifelong passion for reading. Visit your local library, kids!

I think what really makes opening my email faster is that in my gmail I have it set to display in "standard view" rather than whatever the other option is. But if you really want my provider, his name is Hugh Jass; you can actually contact him by calling any phone number at all; but there are a lot of fakers out there so when someone answers the phone make sure to say, "I'm looking for the real Hugh Jass, please."

Hope that helps.

Last night I read Amy Foster by Joseph Conrad.

Why is everyone/everything a "dick" to you? Do you see dicks everywhere when you go outside as well? You may have a problem.

Only if you're in Thailand. They literally put those things in their gardens like gnomes.
