Well that's over. Put in the new RAM, hooked up the new monitor and ran my old G5 for a few days and then WHANG it locked up Friday afternoon. I figured it was a RAM problem or a loose wire in the new power supply (you don't want to know).

Turns out that the socket it's been plugged into is more screwed up than Britney Spears and Lindsey Lohan at a frat party. It's amazing the damn thing ever worked. The ground is bad, the polarity of the plug was backwards; the only thing that wasn't hosed about the receptacle is that it matched the decor of the room (almond on oak).

So it's all hooked back up in my living room again. Yipee.

I saw a couple of mentions of the iPhone around the various sites today. Is there something to all that noise?
