    Quicktime 6.0.3 & OS9

    'lo! As Apple moves further away from OS9, is Quicktime becoming less friendly with it? I only ask because somebody over here is having a problem with movie soundtracks; some run OK and others don't make any noise at all. He's running 9.0.4 International English.

    UK news article

    For those of us hungry to read everything, here's a more favourable response in the UK to Apple's latest move as opposed to all the bench-mark bashing that's been going on, but Quark loses out again:

    Faaaaaantastic! Just what we all need - VAT on digital services from July 1. This'll kill off a new client and probably kybosh some of my future income. Typical, today is the first I've heard about it. Now I know why an established client has put their web site to sleepy-bye. So that makes...

    PowerLook 1120 Photo Firewire question

    Hi folks, I've just purchased a PowerLook 1120 Firewire scanner to run with my DP 450 Mac with the 6-pin FW 400 ports. When the loan for the current Mac is paid up in September I plan on renewing it for another three years (there's business confidence) and upgrading to the latest Mac with...

    In a another thread, 'Quark 4.1 Screen Re-draw Problem', niallerc says Illustrator 10 is behaving badly on his Mac. niallerc is not alone. It behaves badly for everybody. Today a client sent in PC versions of some Illus files, so I DL'd the PC Illus demo to run on the HP. It's not my...

    Morning! I was just rummaging around in the console app and I am curious about this item: Attempt to release a printing object without first doing a retain!!! Is that something to do with Gimp taking over printing? It seems to coincide with printing Appleworks docs, but as they print anyway I...

    F1 Championship 2000

    I'm not sure of the legals on this, I'd like to speed up the circuit loading times so I assume making a disk image of the CD is the way to go but it won't work because of the software dongle (I think). Has anyone tried this and succeeded?

    StylusRIP, bitmap fonts...

    Gimp Print...

    ...and a big YEEEHAAA to the developers! Installation of both Gimp and Ghostscript was a piece of cake and although the print dialogues are a bit fiddly and take a bit of getting used to, we now have the workhorse 1520 on the OSX tramlines with jolly good output. And it doesn't keep suddenly...

    Default attach. view in Mail

    Does anyone know how to make 'icon view' the default for received and sent attachments in Mail? I'd prefer to see icons first rather than the full image and control-click 'view in place' as the option.

    The Castaways

    Is anyone here old enough to remember The Castaways? I once heard a record by them called Lie, Lie, Lie and that's all. I remembered it just now while listening to I wondered if there are any albums around, or anyone knows anything as I can't find any web reference to them or...
