    can't boot into target / slave mode

    Hi I had a problem with my PB running Panther as it wouldn't boot into target / slave mode. Obviously this was a bit of an inconvenience as it made firewire transfers between computers difficult from time to time. I put it down to Panther as I'd never had a problem like this with any of...

    how easy is OS X Server / Xserve to manage?

    Hi all My website is currently being hosted on a Windows (*cough* *splutter*) server of some sort. At the moment we're getting a ton of traffic and we've been told we have to get our own server as we're adversely affecting the performance of the other websites hosted there. I saw that...

    help needed with mail please

    Hi I've been using MS Office (particularly Entourage) for the past 4 years but have been looking forward to being able to move away from it as Office has the apps that most regularly crash on my computers. Finally it looks as if Mail / Address Book and iCal are a worthy replacement so I've...

    which version of OS X do you use?

    hi everyone... I thought I'd seen a thread on this somewhere, but can't find it now... :confused: I'm having some software developed to allow me to bring my product to the Mac... The developer has asked if it's necessary for us to make it fully compatible with 10.2 and I just wanted...

    why the long wait for tiger?

    Hi I'm sure I've missed something somewhere, but does anyone know why there's going to be such a delay before launching Tiger? I watched the whole of WWDC on QT, and I have to say I was impressed... I understand that they want to give Developers time to create new software, but why the...

    Hi I've been running Panther since it came out and have had no real problems... iChat is one of the apps I use every day and, aside from imperfect comms from time to time, it's been fine. This morning it just won't work - i.e. it won't connect at all... Internet connection is fine -...

    turning off html in entourage?

    Hi I've been trying to turn off HTML formatting in incoming messages in Entourage X I checked in the "help" menu, but it says that HTML can only be switched off in outgoing messages... Can this possibly be true? As I understand it, HTML is one way that spammers can tell whether or not...

    QuickTime Pro for 10.3?

    I just opened up QuickTime for the first time since clean installing Panther... It suggested I upgraded to Pro, but when I was taken to the Apple website, it only talks about it being available for OS X - versions 10.2.5 - 10.2.8... Surely this can't be right? Has Apple just forgotten...

    ooops! I knew I should have spent a bit more time thinking my Panther installation through, but I was just so "gosh darned" excited about I missed something...! I backed up EVERYTHING, but forgot to export my bookmarks list in Safari before doing a clean install... Does anyone know...

    17" Pb Ram

    Hi Am I right in thinking that when they bring out the G5 PB, it will use a different kind of RAM (as per difference between G4 PowerMac and new G5)? I've got the chance to get the new 17" PB now, or in January (when I reckon Apple will upgrade it again) - but don't want to spec up on...
