    VirtualBox and head scratching..

    Yeah, I'm so flooded with replies I'm swamped! The DNS setup is done by VirtualBox and is (was) the default settings. Yes the tools were installed. The VM worked flawlessly when copied to another Mac on the same network. I fixed it by adding a new adaptor which uses the host's airport...

    VirtualBox and head scratching..

    After trying VMWare and Parallels and not getting acceptable performance in Vista, I switched to VirtualBox last year and have been very happy with it. I decided to see what the difference is running it via BootCamp, apart from Aero it wasn't any faster really so I did a full system restore via...

    Possible to Run Linux 64 on MacPro?

    I DID find some info as to why Blender is not out for Mac 64-bit, basically more work is needed. I'm in a similar predicament, unfortunately us Mac Blenderheads aren't given the same priority as Linux and Windows users, that's my view anyway (like no sound support on Intel Macs, no 64 bit, no...

    Steve Jobs sick leave

    A lot of people here are going to have strong feelings about this, to be honest I've just realised I care a lot and I really like the guy. He's going to be in my thoughts and prayers and I hope to see him back doing what he does best in the summer.

    How will Snow Leopard compare with Windows 7?

    I've just been having a play with the Beta myself, I honestly can't say it's much quicker, took as long to install - I think, I didn't time it. I really, really, really do not like the start bar, it looks crap compared to Vista's. It feels marginally quicker under VirtualBox but with no support...

    How will Snow Leopard compare with Windows 7?

    Like a golden egg vs. a wet fart... basically Looking at the screenshots, it looks like the start bar is going for some kind of KDE-ish look and the chunky window borders look to me like Aero isn't running properly. I've been having a good play with Vista, it feels like it's bloated and by...

    iWeb and the MobileMe nag screen

    I guess I'm the only one with the problem?

    iWeb and the MobileMe nag screen

    Everytime I start iWeb, since re-installing my Macbook I get a nag asking if I want to join MobileMe, I say no. But it comes up every single time I start it and I'm starting to get irritated. I cannot find anything about it here or via Google, does anyone else have this problem? How can I...

    My experience with Leopard on my new MacBook

    Well it would be rude to leave this thread without some final thoughts now that some time has passed. All in all, I love my MacBook, still got a problem with my main application - Blender but as I understand it, it's due to a bug in the GMA950 driver or something that I can't recall at this...

    My experience with Leopard on my new MacBook

    well, I'm not sure about graphical 'oomph', I would just like some overall 'oomph'. As I continue to use my Mac I'm running into more and more problems with applications which I've never had before. I use blender heavily, I'm having to go back to an older eMac to do anything at the moment...

    PC users amused

    LOL! I agree mate, totally. I've had great fun showing my MacBook off to 'PC' users, every arguement they levelled was just blown away when booting up windows in Parallels (or Boot Camp). In fact, *I* am having great fun saying things like "see, a PC just CANT do that". Coherence in Parallels...

    My experience with Leopard on my new MacBook

    Hi JBarley, after I read your post, I thought 'to hell with it', I'd used Time Machine to backup already to an external drive. So late last night I did a new erase and install (without printer drivers, language support, X11 etc.). The freshly installed system HAS I'm pleased to say, provided a...

    My experience with Leopard on my new MacBook

    Hi Fryke, no not really, this is for opinions and open letters, so I'm expressing an opinion and finalising with a question if anyone else has had similar experiences or 'opinion'. :)

    My experience with Leopard on my new MacBook

    Well after a long happy relationship with my Mac mini G4 1.25, I eventually went mobile and got a 2nd hand iBook G4 800. It was a bit slower than my Mac mini, but I was generally happy and Tiger was quite snappy - all things considered. Then Apple dropped a bombshell on me, Leopard would only...
