Restoration Therapy

This free YouTube Series was inspired by my need to find a way to relieve stress while reducing screen time (ideally). I wanted to work with my hands (and not just on a keyboard) by, in most cases, restoring / upgrading / modifying hardware of any kind that interests me.

The goal with this series is to have a little fun, drink some beer, and work on some hardware all while treating the event as a therapeutic experience to enrich my life and hopefully yours! Main goal: have a little fun!

Apple Power Mac G4 QuickSilver 2002

Apple Power Mac G4 QuickSilver 2002

I am a huge fan of older Macintosh computers, especially Steve Jobs era Macs!

In this video I showcase an Apple Power Mac G4 (QuickSilver) 2002 model that I found at a flea market for super cheap! An obvious motivated seller that even asked me "What the Hell are you gonna do with that thing?" after I bought it, and all I could say in return was "Love it".

I got it "as-is" with no knowledge if it worked and no way of testing it at the time of purchase. But I figured that for the price, I was willing to take the risk! If nothing else, it would be a fun project.

If you find yourself in a similar situation, where you find one of these absolute gorgeous pieces of art and computing history and you need an operating system to get it running here is where you can find it:

To my knowledge, Mac OS X Tiger is the most recent version of Mac OS that runs on these machines, however, you can also install Linux on them as well.

I hope you enjoy the video!
