Yay! Apparently the G5 just wanted some gentle caresses and now it seems happy again

Reseating RAM in my G5 in hopes that it will remember that memory has been compatible for the last many years and will then boot again.

Headed out to cut a Christmas tree

After a bit more work, a pointer from pr1ntf, and a patch from patrick@ I can now auto-install on a VM under over the network

On the train from Portland to Vancouver BC with friends for a nice weekend away.
