I just replaced my old 100 mHz Mac with a good deal on a used PowerMac G3.
What a difference! I'm still on dialup myself, but it's much faster than the
old one with the same 56k modem, and I can hear all webcasts now, including
the ones from XM satellite. My old Mac would not run the newest version of
Real Player or run Media Player at all, which is necessary for the XM casts.
I hope to eventually load ProTools and make a home DAW out of the this one.

Well, how much can you do with jockless automation? Jackson does plan to
have a live morning drive starting sometime next year, but nothing beyond
that yet. I do like the variety of oldies I've heard on it.

Since he went up to 6000 watts ERP, it comes in down the MA North Shore
listenably to Swampscott, and if I get away from the adjacent WMJX
interference five to ten miles from the Pru I hear it fighting in the
background in spots here in the Boston north and west suburbs.
