What started out as a joke

What started out as a joke in the late eighties, has transformed into a multi-billion dollar industry (of course, I'm exaggerating). Upgrade that aging Macintosh that's just collecting dust...or take a drive to your local dealer for the custom-built macquarium of your dreams. (And for those who hate the smell of fish food, there is always the macterrarium)

Whoa, these guys are nuts: an iMacquarium (fish different?), and an Apple Lisa aquarium.

I guess a Mac can be useful afterall.

He did not say that. Nope. I'm just ignoring that. Mathowie would never fan a platform holy war, would he? ;-)

My favorite is the macterrarium (the ultimate hacker firewall).

BTW, you'll notice broken links on that particular link, they're actually just pointing to the local HD...gotta love FrontPage :) (I hope that doesn't start a holy web-editor war)

Yes, I have discovered that. I allowed them to become resellers some time
ago but it was with a different site and NOT the offcolor site. I have
tried to contact them in the past but gave up. I just let the site run and
until something happens it is no big deal.



Ah....they must be "thinking different" :)

Thanks Carl, and good luck!

tiaka: I think he meant to say "old Macs"

He mentioned imacs, imacs are new. Don't cover for him; you're only helping the cause. It's true then, Matt is a mac-ophobe! It's like I've been working for a company for 10 years only to find my boss is a member of kkk or something. :)

In the interest of equal time I offer this:

Finally, someone came up with a use for PCs!

You have acquitted yourself admirably (as usual), Matt. I still love you.

I've got an old Mac somethingsomething (I have no idea what model it is, but it's all one unit and it's not transluscent :-) sitting at home that's waiting for me to get off my ass and Aquariumize it. One of these days...
