Every so often, this happens to me. My Mac will enter a state where it is unreliable, and I will be unable to use it for production work, but the reliability will be sporadic enough that it’s hard to diagnose. Yesterday, I brought my G4 tower in to a local repair place in the hopes that they can fix it up for me. I sure hope they can. The crashes it has are exceptionally strange, and I really don’t know what to make of them. All the normal steps have been taken; were it up to me, the next thing I’d do would be to swap the processor module out (it’s a dual-processor Mac, but there’s just a single “processor module”), and the thing after that would be swapping the motherboard.

Remember the HEAT–probably caused by alcoholic clown vomit in the vents.
