    Damaged Target Volume

    Time to try whatever repair utilities you may have. DiskWarrior (the first choice for most), TechTool Pro or (shudder) Norton Systemworks/Utilities may be able to repair your disk.

    It can be disabled quite easily. Go to System Preferences > Spotlight > Privacy, and designate folders or disks that you don't want to get indexed. :D

    Get yourself a Kensington input device and their MouseWorks software. That will allow you to set the tracking to supersonic speeds. I use the Mouse-in-a-Box Optical Pro (5 buttons and scroll-wheel) myself. And I have MouseWorks configured so that my cursor zooms from one corner of my screen...

    Someone stop me!!

    I have these savings bonds that won't reach maturity for about another 15 years. But if I cash 'em all in right now, I can just about afford a dual 2 GHz G5. Anybody want to argue me out of doing it? ;)

    Apple Two Button Mouse - Vote Please!!!

    New Mac OS X User: What should I not do ? And what should I do?

    Help, safari 1.0 won't launch!

    PithHelmet has not yet been updated for Safari 1.0. Go to ~/Library/InputManagers and delete the SIMBL (or PithHelmet, in older versions) folder. Then Safari 1.0 will function properly.

    Browser War!

    No votes for iCab? I guess Ed hasn't seen this thread yet. ;) Mainly Safari for me, and it does handle my on-line banking. Chimera or Mozilla for sites that Safari can't yet handle. And once every couple of months, IE for those @#$%*&# non-standard sites.
