Blocking one particular free site isn't a long term solution.
  I've already reported ronen46 to the Geocities Abuse Admin;
  it will probably be shut down by next week. Whack-a-mole.

In general, mailing list systems should not allow non-members
  to send messages directly to the list. For Majordomo, just
  add "restrict_post = port-macppc" to this list's config file.


ObBSD: After I bought bigger HDs for my two Macs, I left several
  GB blank on each one so I could install *BSD. I'm eager to start.

/NetBSD-1.5/macppc/INSTALL.html says to use Drive Setup 1.9.1
  or higher to format the partitions from MacOS. Is that a typo? only has version 1.7.3.

Does the HFS(+) bootloader partition need to be brand new, or can
  I just throw ofwboot.xcf onto an existing non-system partition?
  And will the A/UX partitions be visible when I boot in MacOS?

Speaking of INSTALL.html, its W3C compliance level is atrocious.
  I did a bit of tweaking and ran it through Tidy. Would the port
  maintainers like to use my corrected copy?
