I had a Molar Mac G3/233 w/768MB of ram. OS9.2.2 ran like a dream on it.

I owned one for a number of years, eventually putting a G4 upgrade in it, and running an early version of OS X on it. Eventually it got replaced with an MDD G4. One of the best machines I ever owned; I remember it fondly.

No, I mean when I was back in high school I feel like there were G3 machines that were all-in-one and not curvy, because I remember seeing the curvy one and thinking "Oh, that's different." They didn't have eMacs when I was in high school.

Are you thinking of the all-in-one form factors of the Performa?

I remember there being several 5200/75 systems in my high school(and I remember that model number exactly), and I swear that I remember a Mac G3 in the same form factor(and boxy), but I also remember the curvy form factor with the top that looked like the iMac's plastic(and curvy).

Maybe it's just the angle on the G3 AIO?

That was my second computer after the Commodore 64. I learned Photoshop, Quark, and Illustrator on it. It was the workstation for a 60" 1200dpi inkjet printer and Howtek drum scanner back in 1998 so that was pretty cutting edge for the time when 300 dpi was the inkjet standard.

But it had its flaws. It often needed to be shut down at the rear switch because of freezing up and the hard drive failed maybe because of poor case ventilation.

Pro tip: The Performa 5215 has a lifetime warranty on it because of a law suite over bad mobos. Included is unlimited telephone tech support.

However when I moved from Milwaukee to Iowa, Soda (pop), Bubbler (fountain) and Bags from a grocer (knapsacks) were all foreign to them. When I moved back to Wisconsin the only thing I changed saying was soda, but I don't refer to it as pop ethier, I call it one combined word now, sodapop.


The map talking about the large sandwich is missing a couple:
Around where I now live it is called a Wedge--then a few miles east going through various parts of New England it is called a grinder. A few counties to the wast and you will find pockets where hoagie is heard.
Where I grew up it was called a Sub or hero interchangeably. Some delis would call the bread itself a torpedo.

That reminds me of a few things. First, I am grateful that Apple ditched that "aqua" look in OS X. Second, I have an old "Pismo" G3 Powerbook 2000 I need to get rid of. Unfortunately, it's in much worse condition than either of those.

The Powerbook 2000 was a massively better machine in every way:

That's my favorite. My father bought one in the debut year for work. I liked the curves and texture of the plastic. The rubbery strip that went on the outside and the embossed Apple logo were nice touches. The only part that felt cheap was the plastic closure latch, but I liked it more than the sliding lock or buttons most laptops had at the time.

BARDSTOWN, Ky. (WKYT) - A bourbon barrel storage facility has collapsed in Bardstown, and crews are assessing the damage.

WLKY is reporting the building collapsed at the Barton 1792 Distillery around 11 a.m. Friday. No one was injured in the collapse.

Nelson County Emergency Management spokesman Milt Spalding says about 9,000 barrels filled with aging bourbon were affected Friday at the Barton 1792 Distillery in Bardstown.

Spalding says there were no injuries inside the structure, which was holding about 20,000 barrels. Half the structure remains standing.

Bardstown Fire Chief Billy Mattingly says the remainder of the building, which was built in the 1940s, is very unstable and at risk of collapsing too. A crew had been making repairs to the facility.

The Environmental Protection Agency is at the scene along with county firefighters. The EPA is looking at a nearby creek where bourbon may have spilled.

The distillery announced it will close its visitor center and not offer tours for the rest of Friday. It plans to reopen tomorrow morning.

WKYT will have reports from Bardstown on-air beginning at 4:00 p.m., and this story will continue to updated.

Well, the other side fell ...

I didn't think the Muppets were that old. The original Muppet Show started in 1976. Sesame Street began in 1969...Rowlf was never on it except maybe as a guest cameo. Did they begin life as toys, or is this from some obscure British comedy? (does research)...holy cow...Sam and Friends started in 1955. Kermit began life as a lizard!
