Just recently got an iMac G3 DV 400Mhz and I want to repurpose it to run FreeBSD as light-weight server at home (rsync, squid, reverse SSH tunnels, et al)
- PowerMac 2,1
- PowerPC 750 (83.2)
- Boot ROM Version: 4.1.9f1
- RAM: 384MB
- CPU Speed: 400Mhz
Here’s what I have tried.
Used the ppc (boot only) ISO of FreeBSD 10.4, 11.1, 11.2, 11.3 (all -RELEASE) to boot off a CD – it goes through orange screen with all OFW stuff, I hit Enter then it goes through the boot process but then all of a sudden, the machine reboots.
All 4 major releases render the same results.
In terms of booting off a CD with all the attempts I’ve made to get into the FreeBSD installer, I tried the built-in slot-loading drive and an external CD/DVD drive (USB).
FreeBSD 12.1-RELEASE, -STABLE and 13-CURRENT gets stuck but doesn’t reboot and halts. Links to screen shots are below: https://danskoya.com/freebsd-ppc/boot1.jpg https://danskoya.com/freebsd-ppc/boot2.jpg https://danskoya.com/freebsd-ppc/boot3.jpg
I know this is unrelated, but I managed to install OpenBSD 6.6 ppc on the same machine using the same booting method.
Anyhow, I sent an email to the firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list just in case someone can provide some pointers to resolve my installation issues. – https://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-ppc/2020-March/011589.html
I use Squid on my Vultr VPS.
But recently, or at least to my understanding, Vultr switched from using wss:// with CONNECT or plain https:// for their “View Console” feature to wss:// with UPGRADE which is not supported yet by Squid, according to Amos Jeffries.
View Console is useful when you need to perform rescue operations or deploying new Vultr instances among other things. If you use Squid (like me), you have to disable it if you need the “View Console” to work. Else, you will get a “Server disconnected (code: 1006) error on the popup window.
View Console > then View Source and locate this snippet. Create a local bypass for the hostname specified after host = “
// By default, use the host and port of server that served this file
host = "
WFS by Walmart is by invite only, an exclusive club for the big players. WFS stands for Walmart Fulfillment Services.
FBA stands for Fulfilled by Amazon.
The customer fulfillment process for both services is about the same. However, among many other factors, the WFS by Walmart seller/supplier/vendor acceptance process is more rigorous and can be a difficult venture for small to medium-size suppliers.
If your company wants to sell products online, don’t go with WFS by Walmart without any serious preparation and research or you will end up with a closed case with no possibility of appeals. WFS by Walmart requires an existing Marketplace seller account, and their pre/post-screen processing will get you into a lot of headaches particularly with Trust & Safety associates who are lazy or ill-informed.
You will get frustrated even after taking the time to provide a thorough explanation. Generic responses from the Trust & Safety department will get you nowhere. Any red flags during the post screening process will get your account suspended, then terminated. In the end, they collect your company’s FEIN, phone numbers and email addresses.
FBA by Amazon was more favorable and straight forward, at least from personal experience. YMMV, but the process of shipping products to FBA and letting them taking care of the logistics part enables a company to focus more on other important things.

Life requires taking risks, is full of unexpected turns, uncertainty of situations and black swans, as @nntaleb would point out.
Working as a warehouse & driver’s helper for a luggage company has been a learning & rewarding experience. The opportunity to interact with shop owners who share valuable insight to small business survival is priceless.
Small shops catering to local folks and tourists are scattered all over New York City from Canal St. in the heart of China Town, to College Point and along Jamaica Ave. in Queens.
Deliveries take you to through narrow city streets and the Midtown/Lincoln/Holland tunnels going in/out of Manhattan, seeing endless crowds of people and going over the scenic George Washington, Tappan Zee, Verrazano-Narrows & Throgs Neck bridges.
Despite getting berated a few times by moody customers, product fall-outs from the hand truck and my personal backpack stolen by a thug in Brooklyn – these random experiences has taught me the need to stay humble, calm and collected.

If permissions to ~/uploads/ are not set correctly (or was modified in some manner), deleting media will only delete database references (item(s) will disappear from the Media Library view) but the actual files are not deleted.
However, when uploading media, permission errors are displayed.
This seems to be the the default behavior.
When was the last time you checked the contents of ~/uploads/ directory?
