    QuickTime Streaming Server ?

    QTSS runs fine on plain 'ol OS X-- at least it does on the two OS X systems I've installed it on. Read the enclosed documentation carefully-- it can be a bit of a struggle if you're not familiar with Web stuff and broadcast protocols.

    QuickTime Streaming Server ?

    Yes, the (free) QTSS and your FireWire video camera are all you need.

    Got new 61.5GB but showed 48.1 GB WHY?

    Someone either doesn't know what they're talking about, or the message was confused in translation, as it were... The only other thing I can think of is that you've somehow got the disk partitioned, and one of the partitions is about 48G. Check with Disk Setup...

    Got new 61.5GB but showed 48.1 GB WHY?

    No flippin' way would it take 11G of space to format a 60G drive! Either his drive really isn't 60G, or it has a boatload of bad sectors. I'd have to check, but I think my 80G Maxtor formatted to 78.something.

    OS X 4L5

    A Radeon card makes no difference...I use a non-Radeon Mac at work and a Radeon at home and the graphics speeds in Aqua is pretty much the same.

    Classic destined to fail?

    Has anyone gotten Classic to work for more than a few days at a time? I've had OS X 4k78/release installed on three machines for weeks, and it's always the same: Classic initially works perfectly (I have it configured to launch at boot time). After some period of time, Classic no longer works--...

    All Hail SillyBalls!

    "Bo3b" is Bob Johnson, at Apple since the early 80s. Well, he was at Apple, then, anyway-- I thought he'd left long ago. The "3" is silent.

    IE 5.5 kills OS X

    Well, on the advice of the memory vendor, I've run with the 512M DIMM in slot 1 (my Cube tech notes insist that this makes not one whit of difference) and no other RAM installed. No barfs for 48 hours...

    Mac OS X Questions

    I believe the Radeon card, even in PCI, will be a lot faster than what you have now. Maximum PC magazine did a PCI/AGP performance comparison a couple of months back. I believe they were using PCI and AGP Radeon cards. They found only minimal performance differences: apparently most games...

    Mac OS X Questions

    You will not be able to use the Voodoo card under OS X until someone writes drivers for it. Given that the manufacturer of the card is dead, I wouldn't hold my breath.

    Rebuilding OS X desktop

    OK, here's how to recover from that situation, should you ever find yourself in it. Inside your home folder is a Library folder; inside it is a Preferences folder. Most native OS X apps keep their preferences in "plist" (preferences list?) files, named "com.apple.<app>.plist". These are...

    IE 5.5 kills OS X

    Endian, Re your comment that "zoom means adjust the window to best fit the contents" You're right, of course. And that's exactly what OmniWeb does: go to different pages and click the maximize button and it will fit the page to the content. So why do I find this behavior so irritating...

    Rebuilding OS X desktop

    OK, I'm not sure that's really what I mean, but... A little background: most OS X applications are "packages"; that is, what seems to be the application icon is really a folder. Inside the folder is the real application and its various resources. I just had another kernal panic with OS X...

    Upgrading h/w for OSX - is more MHz better than dual G4s?

    While it's true that apps don't need to do anything special to be dispatched to different processors by OS X, it's also true that the programmer can make apps use multiple processors more effectively by "threading" them-- that is, spinning off separate threads of execution. For example, IE...

    IE 5.5 kills OS X

    * No, I'm not running the IE that came with Public Beta-- it was a clean install. * This is the 4k78 that was seeded to developers, not a download. This is why I'm worried...

    IE 5.5 kills OS X

    Gee, _my_ 4k78 File Sharing prefs panel looks fine...it does indeed say things like "File Sharing Off", "Click Start to turn on File Sharing...", etc.

    IE 5.5 kills OS X

    I've spent the weekend playing with 4K78-- and does anyone have the definitive word on whether or not this is the same as the master (aside from the "4k78" text)?-- and it's been pretty disappointing. Apps still launch very slowly, much more so than under OS 9. IE under OS 9 launchs in less...

    Upgrading h/w for OSX - is more MHz better than dual G4s?

    Obviously, no single thread will run as fast on a 533mHz processor as it will on a 733mHz processor. But overall system performance will be better on the dual processor machine. You may or may not see this increase in individual programs-- few Mac applications are multithreaded. And...

    How to burn 4K73?

    It's a Toast image. Interesting that OS X recognizes this natively... Doesn't matter, though, 'cause the CD produced doesn't install, stopping midway through the process, nattering that it is "unable to write file". Damn. Well, the release is only a couple of weeks away, right?

    How to burn 4K73?

    OK, I feel like a moron, but how do you burn a copy of the 4K73 disk image? It's a format that DiskCopy in OS X will mount. Unfortunately there's no burner software for OS X. And the latest OS 9 DiskCopy won't mount the image. So how do you do this?
