iMac G4 software

In case anyone was wondering, you can still get software for the iMac G4 - and very cheaply since it's OLD. I went into a CEX store today and got Bejeweled 2, a Disney Incredibles game, and Football Manager 2006 for 50p each, all with processor specs good enough for a 1ghz iMac G4 and not so old they don't know about OS X. And Bejeweled 2 still works on Intel macs, which isn't bad considering its age! Admittedly all I want this software for is to bundle it with the Mac to make a "hey, computer with games included!" point on the ebay listing, but it's nice that there's still stuff around. In Cex stores it's usually on the same shelf as PC (windows) games, but it's still around.

Weird fanfic idea - Marvel / 2001: A Space Odyssey

Don't think I want to write this, but maybe someone else might:

In the Avengers / Captain America world Hydra took the precaution of backing up Zola's personality - and installed it on a new spaceship, known as Discovery. How does 2001 go when HAL is actually an evil Nazi, not just somewhat deranged?
