"Mr Mathewson" has just bought a USB2 PCI card (10 Euros) and a fan (3 
Euros) (he will remove
the internal speaker at the front of the g4 MDD and mount the fan just 
there):

he is currently trying to lay his hands on a PCI Slot Cooler fan to put 
at the back (fan at front sucks in,
fan at back puffs out):

most of his problems probably come down to over-heating.

He will be removing a 750 GB and a 320 GB ATA disk from his G4 and move them
into Firewire enclosures (he has one and Andre Garzia is sending him 
another).

He is also wondering about collecting a SCSI CD burner from his house in
Scotland and popping a disk inside that (as he has a SCSI PCI card on 
the back of his G4)

He is also wondering about popping a fan directly on top of the heatsink:

He will be extremely grateful for any Firewire enclosures, PCI slot 
coolers, and so on that anybody sees fit to
send him: if anybody wants to send him a Mac Pro he is not quite sure 
whether he has sufficient gratefulness
in his reservoir to repay that sort of thing . . .  :)

As I know Mr Mathewson reasonably well I know that he intends to go 
through with this plan
this coming Saturday and Sunday!

sincerely, Richmond Mathewson (related).
