Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I was recently gifted a Power Mac G4 tower. It has an AGP video card, 128Mb RAM, and a 40 GB hard drive. It's running OS 9, but I didn't receive the install CD with the machine.
Now, I know OS 9 wasn't the most stable operating system around, but the whole thing is freezing up left and right as soon as I open more than one or two programs at a time. This smells like bad RAM.
I know about memtest86, but that doesn't do me any good in PowerPC land. Is there some equivalent here?
There are two sticks of 64mb RAM in the machine currently (one looks like an aftermarket upgrade), and I've got five slightly sketchy sticks of assorted sizes yanked out of various aged desktops loitering around the room. I could try doing this the trial and error route, but that seems like a severe pain. Is it my only option?
