    Firmware update failure rendered a G5 non-booting.

    I was in the process of building a PowerMac G5 (1x1.6GHz) at work, and SoftwareUpdate came up with the G5 uniprocessor firmware update (5.1.5f2, if memory serves), and I cheerfully let it pull it down and run. The process is to let the installer shut down the machine, and then power it back up...

I got these two 1GB sticks that no matter how many times I'd reseat them, MacOSX would never see the extra 2GB of memory.

    Bluetooth discovery.

    I just discovered something very useful (to me at least) over the weekend. I've done a quick search of the forums for the last few months, and didn't see any mention of this, so forgive me if this is not new to anyone. As you all know, Jaguar has on-board support for Bluetooth, and the Apple...
