    The shoe drops.

    I ditched my old Mid-2012 Mac Pro four years ago when Apple discontinued security patches and OS support for it. Decided to spend some time on a PC for a while. Built up a really nice PC installed a dual boot system with Linux and Windows (10 then later 11). Then decided that it was time to...

    How is this possible??

    I know it's been a while since you posted your question, but I've just started looking at this site again after being away for a good, long while. What you had done when you wired one end directly opposite of the other is that you created what we call a crossover cable. Traditionally a...

    Mac Pro Cube !!

    It's obvious to me that the maker of this farce was just having fun. I think it was meant to be a satire of a Macworld keynote. I was lmao ! The problem I had with my cube ( other than it going up in smoke last week ) was that it was a slot-load computer with an odd-size video card and not...

    450Mhz Cube or 500Mhz Tower?

    Here's my situation. Each of these is available to me at a very reasonable price. I can only have one of them. Assuming the same price, would you purchase a 450Mhz G4 Cube (w/o speakers) , or a 500Mhz G4 Sawtooth? The Cube is small, stylish, and quiet, not expandable and uses an external power...

    Safari or Firefox?

    Try Camino , and also iCab. iCab has some really neat features such as the ability to identify itself to sites as explorer in order to improve compatibility.

    Best digital photo software?

    Photoshop Elements should be adequate for most novices. If she decides that she really needs more than Elements can provide, then she could always upgrade.

    right click of command click is slow

    Right clicks work great on my old machines. It ought to be even faster on your g5 dually. I occasionally use "Mac Sweeper 3.0 " to check and repair permissions,clean up the drive, etc. Seems to keep these dinosaurs running nice and fast. I use Panther ,though. Perhaps that feature is...

    irritating non-members

    I'm sort of new here , so forgive me if this is a silly question. My impression is that this site is here for us Os X users to constructively share ideas and information with each other. There seems to be a large number of posts by visitors who are just trying to pick a fight. This...

    can't restart after trying to install OS X

    Davage, Check your private messages if you haven't already. My solution is a little bit long winded. Also , most G3 iMacs can "only" use a maximum of 512mb ram. For best results, I suggest you max it out. Good luck.
