    web browser gfx

    I've been going in and out of the Mac platform (as far as general use and acomplishing actual work) and I've had a nice list of complaints and annoyances about OSX. Most of them have been addressed in Panther. But there's this one thing that still bothers me and keeps me from having even the...

    Applecare question

    I know this is not the right forum for this type of question but I didn't know anywhere else to put it. And it does kinda have to do with a Mac system I bought.

    Flash movie caused kernel panic?

    When a transparent grey screen drops down over everything, and in big white words it tells me I need to restart my machine and in 5 different languages (and one universal hand gesture for when something goes wrong) that's a kernel panic right?

    Quick Software Restore question

    [HOWTO] - Mouse wheel horizontal scroll

    (if this is very common knowledge, forgive me, I'm a recent re-switcher) So you went out and bought a 2 button mouse, and it has a scroll wheel. Works fine for scrolling vertically but how do you scroll HORIZONTALLY? Hold down the SHIFT key on your keyboard and use the scroll wheel as...

    Motorola's PowerPC 7457 for $5046.96

    The Link: The article has a somewhat non-serious tone, and it doesn't seem to mention volume pricing. This is one of those times I wish this is just an exaggeration by TheRegister because I'm hoping for a PB update soon to buy an old model...

    Airport: restrict by MAC address

    I've read reviews of wireless base stations from the PC side that allow an admin to strict access based on supplied MAC addresses of wireless cards. I was wondering if the same can be done with an Airport(Extreme) base station and if so how? I just received and setup my Airport gear last night...

    Has anyone else downloaded and tried the new Qt lib Trolltech released for OSX? I did and it compiled nicely, but I had to do one little thing to get it to work. I'll ellaborate on that if anyone is interested. Andways, my problem is in regards to actually building some Qt apps. I create a...
