revised Programming RCX in 10.9 environment
RCX was often run with RoboLab software. 10.9 and 10.4 are versions of OS X (Apple).

NXTs can jump to the latest version of EV3 software. That version is downloadable from Lego.

comment Are there any additional robo center downloads for the nxt-g software?
Are you asking what happened to the NXT software robot plans? The ones that were animals, humans, machines, or vehicles? One my pc, there is one animal, a scorpion. It is located at file:///C:/Program%20Files%20(x86)/LEGO%20Software/LEGO%20MINDSTORMS%20NXT/engin‌​e/EditorVIs/Academy%20Content/activities/animals/scorpion/01/slide-inst.html

comment NXT Brick will not update firmware
"click, click ..." is a sign the firmware has gone bad or has never been installed. So replacing the firmware is the only option. "Port B motor drives at full speed." Does anything else work? LCD panel visible? Can you download programs? Any chance the Port B wiring connection has crossed up wires? If the LCD panel is visible, there are a set of menu options to View the Rotation sensor on Port B. Does that change when the Port B motor is turned by hand?

NXT-G definitely can not be used to program the EV3 brick.

comment NXT Programming not working
For a Text Block, which displays text or images on the LCD panel, it is important the add a Wait Block after the Text Block, to give time to view the LCD panel before the program ends. Wait for 10 seconds should help.
