    Connecting Macs

    I forgot to ask if this could be done over the internet? We don't live in the same house. Reason I ask about the .mac account is because I did a search before posting my question. I got a lot of info on how to set up a public folder using .Mac

    Connecting Macs

    Is there a way to connect to a another mac without having a .mac account? I would like my sister to have access to some sort of public folder on my computer. I have some home movie files that I would like to share with her.

    Disk Insertion Error On External Drive

    I probably won't take too bad of a hit on the data loss. Any good data recovery apps? I ran one called Data Rescue a while back. This one took forever to run.

    PMU Reset

    Thanks for replying. Is this a long process? Please forgive me. I don't have the computer on hand to perform this. I know when I took it to the Apple store the tech took the computer in the back for only a few minutes. Can the logic board/mass storage chassis easily be removed? And is...

    PMU Reset

    There are 2 ways of doing it. One way is with the keyboard (like you did Lurk). One is with a button (I think called a CUDA button). It is there and is not called a magic button. The problem is that the computer won't boot up at all. So holding these buttons down won't help. The main...
