I have too many computers.

This is a Mac G4 "Quicksilver".  I've replaced the (dead) power supply with
a non-Apple supply (with wiring mods to make it work).  It has Ubuntu 16.04
installed on it, because I was using the computer in my guest room, and
guests should have a modern browser.

The case is in good to excellent cosmetic condition.  I'll wipe my account off
the machine and give you the root password, and then you can either use it
as is, or install MacOS 9 on it (or whatever).

It has a 40GB disk and 640MB of RAM.

Here are the detailed specs about OS and CPU:

VERSION="16.04.6 LTS (Xenial Xerus)"

bogomips      : 49.81

I don't particularly want to ship this as it's big and heavy.
I live in the middle of NJ.  I can deliver it to the Museum
for a tech day, or meet you somewhere in Monmouth or
Ocean county to effect the transfer.

This email is free of malware because I run Linux.
