Amazingly, no naps for three days. How long will this streak last? Overnight hibernations like from last night's 10:10:10:10 PM PDT to 6:40 AM PDT with a couple short wake ups (no peeing too!).

I have a few old Macs that I still use from time to time.

I was once given a Mac older than my laser printer that had the option

I use a batch of PowerBooks as my daily drivers at home, only resorting

TenFourFox and Leopard Webkit/Safari as browsers, save stuff to WebDAV
server. TenFourBird or Apple Mail.app for email, KomPozer for simple
websites, older LibreOffice for all those dratted MS-type docs...

Good question. I use a G4 for recording with Pro Tools through a hardware
capture card that's only supported on PPC Macs. I also use Claris on there
sometimes, even though I use a 2006 iMac Duo as a "daily driver" for general
office use, including browsing the web when needed, and also have a current
iMac and custom Windows 95 retro-gaming rig.

Do you make your own TenFourFox builds now it's no longer in development?
I'm curious to see if anyone's been doing that since the code was published?

I do use a Mac Mini G4 running Mac OS 9.2 and a Mac IIci running 7.1.
Both are in almost daily use and I try to do as much as I can on them.
Since I've found my way here now, there's something else I can do from
my IIci :-)

It's a learning curve to find workarounds to "modern" problems - which
is part of the joy of using the real Mac OS in 2023! You have to be
ready to "think differently" doing stuff than what you're used to from a
modern machine. That said, add in a cheap-o Android smartphone for stuff
I can't do on the Macintosh (e.g. Online Banking) and I have my perfect
set-up at home.

Games that I regularly run are Sim City 2000, Glider Pro and Warlords II
- among a few more. Here and there Marathon calls. I also still play the
recently released two boxed adventures Silk Dust and Hibernated I,
haven't been able to beat them yet.

Yes indeed! My more or less "daily driver" is my PowerBook G4 Titanium
1ghz which dual boots OSX Tiger and Mac OS 9.2.2. I tend to spend most
of my time in 9.2.2 where I can manage my Linux servers using SSHeven, I
browse the web using a combination of Classilla and Lynx together with
Crypto Ancienne to offload TLS. I make music, I edit video, send email
and write posts like this one on usenet. It's still a very capable
machine in todays day and age.

I run together with my friends http://macintoshgarden.org and
http://system7today.com which both is excellent resources for old Macs.

Stay old school ;)

I use a relatively modern mac (albeit one that is still considered
obsolete). But I still frequently run system 7.5-9.0 in SheepShaver.
Does that count?

No Judgement here. I use SheepShaver for running codewarrior as it builds
much faster than a real machine. Though I feel like I've never gotten
SheepShaver to the same level of stability as a real machine. I wish I
could get it there as I wouldn't mind using it play some online games with
friends who don't own vintage macs.

I am still using an old Mac! I am posting this from a Power Mac G4
running OS9. Newsreader is Thoth.

Saw the news about Google Groups dropping Usenet and figured now might
be a good time to get back into newsgroups, and what better way than on
my old Mac. :)

Sure! Writing this on my PowerBook G4 Titanium in Mac OS 9.2.2 using
MT-NewsWatcher as my Usenet client. I am involved in running two
websites dedicated to vintage Macintoshes as well, Macintosh Garden and
System 7 Today.

I might start using MT-NW again, Thoth is proving a little unstable and
has caused a few total system crashes... I'm not sure why, haven't
tried to troubleshoot it, but it seems a bit buggy on this machine.
Which is a shame, it's a really impressive newsreader.

I run vintageapplemac.com, although I haven't done a thing with it in
several years now... I pretty much zoned out on vintage Macs during the
pandemic and am now only just getting back into the hobby. I do intend
to start using my site again, have a couple of neat things I've
acquired that need archiving and then sharing...
> Usenet will hopefully outlive us all :)

Absolutely it will, and with Google Groups and the associated spam
abuse now out of the picture, it will hopefully be healthier for it.

Could you use an SSL Issuer who is associated with a Certificate Authority
that exists in, and is not expired, on older vintage systems? I found that
Microsoft Azure is one such issuer... there may be others, as well.

Until then, I'll use frogfind.com to browse your content.

Add the root certs on your old machine, if you can. Netscape can do it, for
example.

I may need some instructions. I found some Keychain Access instructions,
but... I don't see how I'd import that into Mac OS X 10.2 or older (eg,
Classic).
