    Call of Duty online play problems

    Hey everyone, I bought Call of Duty today, and have been attempting to play online, but I keep getting booted from servers for one of two reasons: 1) My PunkButser software is out of date, even though I went to the website and downloaded the latest updates. 2) I get booted with this...

    JBL Creature II Speakers - need quick clarification

    Hey everyone, Sorry to clog the forum with such a simple and stupid question, but I need some quick clarification. I went to my local AppleStore today for some JBL Creature II speakers, and they were sold out (pfft!). I found a local Dick Smith store that stocks them, but I'm not sure if...

    Anyone got Premiere 6.5 working under Tiger?

    Good evening everyone, I'm sure anyone who uses Premiere is aware that it crashes under Tiger when exporting, and was just wondering if anyone has found a workaround/update to fix it? I've searched high and low on the Net and forums and can't seem to find an answer. Apple's list of...

    Backing up Apps folder - simple or difficult?

    I erase and install OS X once every couple of months. It's a habit I've picked up from WinXP (i'm a bit obsessive compulsive about having a clean system). Anyway, I don't mind doing it, but would like to not have to re-install the billions of apps/utilities everytime I do. If I were to...

    Ongoing problems with iMac G5 Superdrive

    Hello everyone! I bought by iMac G5 w/superdrive many months ago. The first time I tried burning a DVD I came across the error (see attachment). However, just when I was going to return the Mac and replace the drive, I tried to burn something else, and it worked. I put it down to crappy DVDs...

    Why is Cleaner so slow to encode MPEG-2?

    Hello everyone! I encode a lot of video to MPEG-2, and up until now I have been using Quicktime Pro to do so. I have found it consistently takes around 2 hours to complete encoding a 40 minute video to MPEG-2. So I recently got Cleaner 6, thinking this would be a more efficient way...

    Stop putting crap in my Documents folder!!

    Am I the only one getting really frustrated with applications adding folders to the Documents folder? I just finished doing a fresh install of OS X and opened my Docs folder to add my folders only to find - to my horror - four extra folders: "AdobeStockPhotos" and "Updater" from AdobeCS...

    How does Pages compare to MS Publisher?

    I'm looking for a simple, ~$100 application as an alternative to MS Publisher. Yea I know - I hate Publisher too, but this is for my mother who has only recently switched to Macs and has very limited computer knowledge. She uses Publisher a lot for her grade 2-3 students she teaches. How...

    iBook first battery charge

    Hello people! I just today purchased a shiny new iBook G4. I have a quick Q though: When you buy a mobile phone, I've always been told that you should do a long, 12-hour charge the first time you use it or the battery will not hold as much life. Does this hold true with an iBook...

    CSS and why I hate Microsoft

    I'd like to talk about Microsoft Internet Explorer's, shall we say, "quirky" support of Cascading Style Sheets. I think it's extremely irresponsible that Microsoft has refused to fully support CSS. I read an article recently that claimed Microsoft has again said they will not aim to fully...

    Mac & PC friendly External HDD: What are my options?

    I have an External HDD that is formatted using Mac OS Extended, which my PC won't read. I would love to be able to use it on both, because I often do huge transfers between them and have to use DVDs to do so. Is there a way I can allow it to be read on both (perhaps an application for Windows XP...

    Will Counter-Strike Source come to the Mac?

    I read a thread on MacOSX.com about the old CS, and how they going to release the original CS on the Mac but decided not to at the last minute :mad: But what about CS Source? could it happen? Just imagine...

    Region Free DVD software for OS X?

    So for the last couple years I have been addicted to Amazon.com. Living in Australia, I cannot get many of the DVDs I want (especially TV Shows). So 2 years, and thousands of dollars later, I have a stack of Region 2 DVDs (as well as many Region 4 from when I buy local). I think you see...

    omg how do I kill pop-under windows?!!?!?!

    We've all seen them by now. Just when you thought that sleazy, obvoxious, intrusive form on internet advertising - the Pop-Up window - had finally bitten the dust with anti-pop ups becoming standard on most browsers. Now comes its more evil, more sneaky cousin - the pop-down window. When I...

    is there a Doom 3 demo?

    I'm interested to know how my iMac will handle Doom 3 (god knows my PC almost blew up!). Anyone know where (or if) I can download a demo version? Been looking for ages and can't seem to find it.

    Question for EveTV 200 owners

    I've been looking at the EyeTV 200 for my iMac. From what i've read I'm convinced it's a great buy. I have just one concern that I hope EyeTV owners can answer for me. I have read all about their Electronic Programming Guide available to easily program TV shows. However this is only...

    iMac G5 auto-darkens, doesn't brighten up again

    You know how on an iMac (or iBook for that matter), before it turns the screen off altogether, it darkens the screen to conserve energy? Well often on my iMac it will auto-darken to about 70% brightness, and when I move the mouse it will auto-brighten again to 100%, but them moments later...

    Anyone recommend some speakers for iMac?

    Loving my new iMac G5, but the speakers - understandably - lack bass and pretty much suck in general. so...can anyone recommend some speakers? I don't want a $1000 job - all I need is some stereo speakers with decent bass. Looking to spend no more than $200 (Australian) if possible. Had...

    Airport Exteme works only half the time on my new iMac!

    I recently got my shiny new iMac G5 20", which I have fallen in love with. Unfortunately the honeymoon is over, and we are having our first fight. I took my Airport extreme card out of my eMac and put it into the iMac. It works ok sometimes, but other times no matter what I do, it won't...

    Hello! My Lacie External Firewire HDD (porche design model) no longer mounts on my eMac G4 800. I turn it on but nothing happens. This is very strange because I only used it about 2 hours agoto back some files up, and have never had any problems with it in the 8 months i've used it...
