I Has 512mb

The 512mb DRAM I mentioned in my previous post has arrived and worked. This is stonkingly cheap for anything that works in an iMac G4, and I am EXTREMELY pleased.

Later - found someone on ebay selling Samsung SODIMMs for a fiver, looks to be the correct spec. It's a Hong Kong vendor but I think I'm prepared to take a chance on this, there's no urgency.

Libre Office for PPC

I wanted to install Libre Office on the iMac G4 (and possibly update the version on my iBook G4, it turns out they dropped PPC support some years ago. Anyone know what the last version was with PPC, and if it can still be downloaded anywhere?
