Mac user roll call- Do you use a Mac?

Well, I occasionally fire up my Quadra 605, running system 7.5.3 to play Bolo.

When not playing Bolo, I use TeachText to work on the code for Mac GUI. Unfortunately, TeachText can only handle files of up to 32k, so a lot of files are fragmented into two seperate parts.

When done, I use a few MS-DOS formatted floppy disks to copy the files to a PC, where I then upload them to Mac GUI server.

I suppose that must count as using a Mac.

If you ever needed something cheap to run OSX 4 or 5, just grab a G4, they are pretty cheap. I got rid of my G3, as it was just too outdated, but I think you can get OSX 4 to run on a G3.

Well hey, at least it does a good job, but, why dont you just use some open cource app for your PC to do your programming; or do you just use the mac to say you program it all on a mac lol

It is however pretty nice to see one being used in a working and "mission critical" ( in Microsoft's terms) environment! haha!

Clarification:

The first line of my previous post is true, the rest are not!  

I do all work on a modern Macintosh system with OS X, except for when I am "out and about" and discover something that needs immediate fixing.

I run httpd, mysqld, Imagick, and PHP 4 all on this Mac and as such, I do all programming & testing there. Nothing is tested "live."

OSX 10.4 will run on any G3 with built in Firewire, but there is an app out there that i used a bit that will let you run 10.4 on any G3.
