I am thinking about setting up an office in my garage because I need to have more room in my house. I live in florida and am concerned about the heat and my powermac G4. Will it affect it or will it be ok? Does anyone know?

Thanks!

I've also wondered about that. Also, I have my G4 sitting in front of a drafty window. Is there anything I should know about moisture, etc?

Great! Thanks for the help. Also do you know where I could get a copy of gauge pro, it seems to be unavalible from versiontracker.

Could you e-mail me a copy to [email protected]?
