    Point-to-point Wireless Connection

    I'm looking into setting up a point-to-point wireless connection between my new house and my parents-in-law as for various reasons it might be a while before we can get a phone line installed. The houses are about 50m apart (maybe a little more) as the crow flies although there are some hedges...

    Problems waking clamshell iBook with 9.2

    I have an old clamshell iBook that I was going to sell, however I encountered a problem when testing it. When waking it up after it has been closed, the cursor is movable, however nothing can be clicked. I tried force quitting which first allowed me to quit Shareway IP, and as that didn't help...

    Slashdot-like alternative for shared hosting

    I had an idea for a site with a similar format to Slashdot however I could do with finding an alternative to Slash. Unfortunately the slashcode "Slashalike" list is extremely out of date and most of the scripts on it either don't seem to be around anymore or still aren't suitable. My...

    AJAX Show/hide text

    I've been looking for a script that I assumed would be easy enough to find but I haven't had any luck yet. If anyone knows of a script, or even some pointers for writing one I'd appreciate it. I have an RSS feed on a web page that has blog entries (title and preview/description) displayed...

    Mac compatible wireless adapters

    Tiger lost my mail

    I just upgraded to 10.4 (I prefer Panther but some software demanded it) from 10.3.9 and the new Mail seems to have lost all my mail from July 2005 onwards. It downloaded everything off the mail servers but there's almost a year's worth of messages missing. I know I should back up once in a...

    Development platform advice

    I'm developing a dynamic website that is based around a calendar system, that should also be able to talk to calendar apps. Ideally I'd like to be able to display calendars for various users on the same screen. I'd assumed that this would be developed in PHP/MySQL as it's open source and I...

    Yet Another "Which Mac Should I Get" Thread

    Apologies for the lame thread but here goes. I've been looking to replace my (heavily upgraded) PowerMac G4 for a while now, espcially since I've just started a new company and I could do with a sperate machine for work (web/print design, music production). Anyway, I spotted a "Buy Now Pay in 12...

    Good price for Apple display?

    I know someone selling a fairly new Apple 17" LCD and I wanted to see if anyone could give an opinion on how good a buy it is. The price is £250; I couldn't seem to find how much the RRP was and I didn't see any around on eBay (maybe I wasn't looking hard enough). I know 17" LCDs start at about...

    Streaming audio options

    Most of the sites I build are for bands and I'd like to find the best way of streaming audio without external apps. For example, I'd like to have a link or button on the front page of a site to stream a song (either a single one or preferably to choose one) that will be self contained. I...

    Wacky UNIX Question: SPARC net install with OSX

    Ok. I've got a SPARCStation 20 that doesn't boot and probably has a bunch of rubbish on it anyway. I'd like to do a clean install of Solaris 8 on it but the machine doesn't have a CD-ROM. I know it's possible to do a network install from Linux (although the howtos are a little over my head) and...
