    OSX x86 leaked?

    The rumors on slashdot are saying it's a generic Intel motherboard in the developer boxes, so the chances of it running on "grey boxes" is quite good compared to when Apple ship a full blown system that they have had time to design and lock down. I would personally be quite happy to be able to...

    OSX x86 leaked?

    There are several fake OSX_86 torrents kicking around the net. Most are about 956MB too small for an OSX installer, they are an .iso that just does a pornographic splash screen on startup, so don't waste you time looking for them.

    Diablo grinds to a crawl after installing Tiger

    I installed the MaxOS X 10.4 Tiger update, last week, on to my dual 1GHz "mirror" G4. The performance of Diablo dropped right off to almost unplayable. I had to turn off OpenGL, by holding down the option key, on launching Diablo, and setting it to software video. The 10.4.1 update that came...

    DVD-R media compatible w/SuperDrive?

    Make sure you use 2x speed disks, the new 1-4x disks, even from Pioneer that make the superdirve, will only write at 1x. 2x disks will however write at 2x. Go figure! I know not why.

    Hooking iMac up to a TV set

    I just bought an ADVC-100 that plugs into a firewire port if you have one of those. http://www.canopus.com/US/products/advc-100/pm_advc-100.asp It acts like a DVD camera for both input and output with DV compatible applications.

    dvd burning

    Not sure about iDVD, but the DVD player works fine on my Samsung DVD player CD burner that I bought from the local PC bits shop. I do also have a brand new Pioneer A05 DVD burner, but iDVD is out of stock until iLife ships on the 15th. of Jan. so I won't know if it needs a firmware hack until then.

    Safari lacks. Doesn't have tabs.

    I am running a couple of Yikes motherboard old G4/400 PCI machines with 256MB, and Safari works fine on those under 10.2.3, nice and quick. Mind you, it's best if you are on cable or xDSL not a modem dialup or you will find it hard to judge the speed of Safari.

    Making VCD's on a PowerMac. Can I? Easily?

    I have done it, it's very awkward, I wish someone would write a single click or command line script to do it, with perhaps a set once config file. The quality is fantastic and played on a DVD/svcd stand alone player and also with vlc under Mac OSX. The link to instructions is ...

    Apple DVD Player 3.0 rejects PCI G4's

    I read there is a hack to fix the Apple DVD Play 3.0 so it will work on B&W G3's and early G4's. Does anyone have a link to the hacked version? The main site on yahoo has been taken down. - Ernie.

    Apple DVD Player 3.0 rejects PCI G4's

    I think the wireless is based on the lucent chipset, if so someone will come up with a driver eventually for 10.1 as there are wavelan drivers for linux and FreeBSD already. I am not familiar with the Lombard model, which range is that? - Ernie.

    Apple DVD Player 3.0 rejects PCI G4's

    It appears that Apple in their "wisdom", have removed DVD player support for the early PCI video G4's and G3's, meaning I can't play DVD's on Mac OS X 10.1. Rebooting to MacOS 9 is not practical for me. Does anyone know if there is a version of any DVD playing software that will work with...
