This week's book giveaway is in the Reactive Progamming forum. We're giving away four copies of Reactive Streams in Java: Concurrency with RxJava, Reactor, and Akka Streams and have Adam Davis on-line! See this thread for details.
I inherited, for free, a PowerMac G4 400MHz from work. I am using it for a few things, but it is just a little bit too slow to be pleasant to use.
I already put in 768M memory (eBay, 4 GBP), an 80G disk (a whopping 35 GBP) and a fast USB (eBay, 1 GBP). The original 20G disk is still there, as the system disk, with user files on the new disk. I am wondering if there are any other cheap and easy upgrades that might squeeze a wee bit more "go" out of it.
Betty Rubble? Well, I would go with Betty... but I'd be thinking of Wilma.
