I just shut my Power Mac G5 down for what will likely be the last time, after nearly six years of flawless operation.

I realise it’s just a computer, but I’m a bit wistful at the moment. I ordered it the day the quad-core machines were announced, and it arrived on the 17th of November in 2005. It’s been my computer through rather a lot of changes in my life… from the mundane like Apple moving from Frenchs Forest to the city, to Lily being born (and all the drama and psycho-ness from her mother, ugh), to the best thing that’s ever happened to me: falling madly in love with my beautiful kungfupolarbear, proposing, and getting married. 🙂

I used the hell out of the computer through that whole time, and never once did it skip a beat. Farewell, G5.

  1. I love how Lily’s mother kept telling everyone you hadn’t seen Lily until she was 3 months old, when I knew you all during that time and there are PHOTOS of you with Lily from the time she was 2 days old. God she’s a lying ass.

    But anyway, SQUEE. I love you so much too! I love those old livejournal posts of ours. It’s been quite a ride so far and I’m looking forward to the rest of it 🙂

    Also, hey, I bet the computer will get used now and again. Don’t get too wistful 🙂
