    Lousy High Resale Value!

    Last summer I bought an old ProTools Digi 001 system that I was hoping to use in my G5. It wasn't until after I had already received the thing, but before I put it in, that I realized it wasn't compatible with the G5 because of the PCI voltage. I ended up having to use it in my crusty old AMD...

    Broken AirPort Antenna?

    I've long since given up using my iBook G4 800 MHz because it's soo slow but it seems to work fine for my mom so she's been using it for the last year or so. Recently she complained that the AirPort was no longer connecting. At first I assumed that the router was messed up but my other computer...

    Audio CD Mastering/Design software

    Maybe I'm not good at coming up with search queries... it just seems silly that I can't find anything. What I need is something like Sony's CD Architect that lets you build an audio CD and create fades between tracks, adjust levels per track, etc. Anyone know of a good one for OS X? I can't...

    Tomcat hosting

    A friend and I are going to be starting a project soon. I've been trying to figure out what platform to develop for and right now I'm leaning heavily towards Java. I like the flexibility, the amount of free libraries that can consumed without having to recompile an apache module *cough* PHP...

    idont.com

    I searched, didn't find anything. Please don't hurt me. I stumbled across this website today, it's pretty interesting. At first it seems like a site created by a random third party simply hating on the iPod, and the people that have them. Then I hit the "The Alternative" page and realized it's...

    Underclocked Video Cards?

    Apparently the MacBook Pro isn't configured to do what it is capable of. If you ask me it's a pretty cheap way to squeeze more battery life out of a machine. Maybe Apple should invest some time into creating dynamic clock speeds for video cards controlled by the energy saver much like what is...

    Motorcycles...

    Yea so I want a bike pretty bad. I'm kind of wondering how many of you ride, or have opinions on bikes. A lot of my friends are getting bikes this year and it's always been something that I've wanted to do but never really had the guts to. I'm a real sucker for sport bikes, they've been...

    5.1 Soundcards

    I really want to get these (amazing) 5.1 headphones but there is one problem... my G5 doesn't have any way of connecting with them because they use 3 1/8inch jacks and the mac only has 1 stereo jack and the optical jack. So here are my two options: 1. Get a 5.1 (or 7.1) receiver that has...

    Wiki

    I did a search... didn't find anything so I _hope_ this hasn't been posted already. Wikis seem to be the cool thing these days. I was thinking it would be a good idea to set one up on this site for common problems instead of the stickies and having people posting questions in the how to...

    Windows Support...

    So now that you can run Windows natively on Apple hardware are we going to have to start helping people with Windows issues? Just food for though :-P

    Office 2004 performance on G5

    I'm here at an Apple store trying out a MacBook. I have to say, even though word is running on rosetta it seems a lot quicker than Word on my G5. It doesn't seem to really matter what I am doing, things just take longer. For example, indenting with a bulleted list is painful as hell. It seems...

    Teehee! MiniPC

    I did a few quick searches so I hope this isn't a repost. anandtech has a review of an AOpen MiniPC which is basically a clone of a Mac Mini. I'm not joking. The funny part is I don't think this guy realized that the new Mini's were out because he was comparing it to the PPC Mini, at least in...

    Novell and Xgl

    I pretty much stole this from slashdot, but I thought it would be neat to discuss it here. Basically Novell has released Xgl which is "an openGL accelerated X server layer" Basically, Linux is now getting a lot of Window/GUI functionality we mac users have had for a bit with OS X and what...

    Quicktime weirdness

    Trying to watch the MacWorld keynote on my G5 running Tiger 10.4.4 and qt all the way up to date. All I get is the blue loading thing on the bottom forever. Runs great on my PC though (wtf)

    Cocoa with Java and packages

    I started working on client/server project for fun earlier today when all I had was a PC, so I wrote it in Java. I wrote a really light backend that functions fine but it needed an interface. When I got home I was going to try and create an interface using eclipse SWT, but I thought it would be...

    Wacom Support for GIMP

    I just got a Graphire 4 and am already pretty used to using it around the desktop. I would like to get it working in GIMP, well working as a tablet, not a fancy mouse. I am using Gimp.app right now and I have looked around to see what needs to be done to get it to work, it looks a little tricky...

    Tablets for a non art guy...

    I'm not an artist by any means, but I do end up GIMP/Photoshop once and a while when I am working web stuff. I have been playing around with the idea of getting a cheaper Wacom tablet, something like a graphire4 just because sometimes I get really annoyed with my mouse when I am trying to make...

    Fun with JavaScript, XML, and PHP

    Here is a little something I put together ealier this summer for the 'blog' I wrote. http://www.macg33k.com/Archive/archive.html It's a little geeky, definitely an obvious ripoff, but that was really the point.
