    Frequent (Ethernet) Disconnects

    Hi Satcomer, thanks for the YASU advice. I now use it upon every end of day shutdown. The disconnects occur less often, like randomly about every hour or two, instead of every 10 minutes. Either YASU is solving something, something that doesn't stay solved, or theres something else. Thanks...

    Kernel Panic on Boot

    Hi ShawneeNDN, I would be suspicious of the memory modules. I don't recall the module configuration for the G-4 all that well, so I'll answer on my own experiences and see if it helps. Bad memory module can prevent or allow bootup; signs and symptoms are kernal panic. If it had been...

    Dropped external hard drive while operating, is there any hope at recovery???

    Hi Anatta1 I can't believe the admins of this website haven't jumped all over your message. Oh well, here's some options, none of which are all that favorable. -- Remove the hard drive and remount it in either another case or in a USB external drive adapter (in case the damage affected...

    Looking for ATI equivalent to the NVidia GeForce GTX 285

    Hi ElDiabloConCaca, I just received an email reply from Evga; they have, in fact, discontinued the 01G-P3-1080-TR and have no plans for any other video cards for the Mac. I bit the bullet and ordered it at a higher price from another vendor that has 5 left. Modifying the PC version of the...

    Looking for ATI equivalent to the NVidia GeForce GTX 285

    Hi ElDiabloConCaca, Thanks much for replying with the suggested ATI 4870. Video output ports are not HDMI like the ATI 2600 that comes with the Mac Pro. The two non-Apple monitors I have can handle both HDMI and DVI, so the setup is OK at least with one monitor. The 2nd output of the...

    Mail's rules won't migrate to System Leopard

    Hi Morris96, I assume you refer to making the messages migrate. Please try your rules and see if they migrated and work. I also tried removing the message rules and causing mail.app to use the backup rules, but then they (the rules I finder-copied) still wouldn't run. I really hate...

    Mac Pro, Dual Quad-Core and Processor Usage

    Hi ElDiabloConCaca, Thanks much for replying. I rarely do batch processing in tandem with other processor intensive activities, and unless there are some hidden characteristic of the Two 2.8GHZ Quad-Core Intel Xenon vs the one, then it appears saving $500 is more important. I do get my...

    Mac Pro, Dual Quad-Core and Processor Usage

    Greetings, ElDiabloConCaca, Your message answers most of my concerns as I prepare to upgrade from a G-4 667 (w/ a 1.8 GHZ accelerator card) to a Mac Pro 2.8. I don't (yet anyway) do high end complex vid editing, and I don't even own a copy of Final Cut Pro; so the most difficult...

    "Installed User-Base?"

    Good morning, In '95, MacUser magazine reported that there were (at the time) 20 million Mac users worldwide, compared to over 300 million Pee Cee users. The industry likes to use the hokey term, "installed user-base" to describe the population of users of a particular platform. What are...

    PC users amused

    Where I work, everything is Pee Cee only; no Macs, no Linux allowed on the property. A hard core PC user finds it amusing that Mac Users (many Mac Users) have experienced the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) upon upgrading to System Leopard. He says that Mac users are "getting what they deserve!" ---

    Repairing Permissions in Leopard...1st time...

    Hi, Instead of installing System Leopard on my primary internal drive (processor upgraded G4), I decided to upgrade an external "emergency" firewire boot drive. The install apparently went well. There were no aborts, errors, or snags. Upon restart (and booting to the external firewire...
