    Testing 10.2 on a PowerBook Wallstreet

    Hey all - This has been driving me insane! I have a powerbook g3 series wallstreet (the infamous 233!) which I've upgraded as much as possible, outside of the big ram upgrade. Anyway, the ethernet has been toasted forever now. I have a farallon cardbus 10/100 ethernet card that works under os9...

    cpu preference pane -pb 667 g4-level3 cache?

    Ahh... figured it out with a little help from: http://www.macosxhints.com/index.php?orderby=date&howsort=DESC&page=2&topic=system Seems my energy saver settings were wacked, I had "reduce performance" selected for the cpu, even when using the power adapter. argh!! J5

    cpu preference pane -pb 667 g4-level3 cache?

    Hey all - Just went into my preferences and noticed a new pane called "CPU". No idea how long it's been there, but being a speed freak, I decided to check it out. I opened it up, and noticed that level3 cache was set to none. I check my profiler, which states that I have 1mb of level3 cache, so...

    800 Tibook Fan almost always on using 10.2

    Hey, I just bought a tibook 667. My fan is on alot as well. What version is the firmware you're using now, and where did you find it? Thanks in advance! j5

    QE Performance - the true picture!

    Hey - Haha. I agree fully! I just bought a 667 tibook, 32meg video, etc. It only has the 256megs of ram right now (got a gig on it's way!), but I agree that window resizing in ie is still a bit slow. Compared to the pb in my now out-dated sig however, it screams! :) One encouraging outlook...

    .mac backup?

    Hey - What I meant was that I wouldn't be able to burn cd's with out having an account, using backup. I downloaded and installed, but since I'm only a trial user, the only thing I can backup to is my idisk. As far as your comments on it being worth it or not, I'd like to clear the air by...

    help need on building .mac backup alternative

    Hey David - Looks like it's a great start! I'm downloading it now... I'll post again once I've checked it out. Some of the features I'm looking for are: 1. backup only files that are new or changed since the last backup 2. backup locations of files, so a restore is easy. 3. Be able to...

    .mac backup?

    Ghoser - This is the sort of info I'm looking for! Nah.. our app will be telepathically force-uploaded into the user's brain. ;) (but will only run in classic!) You mention that non .mac users should be able to use it... that's exactly my argument! --- I just downloaded it. I haven't...

    .mac backup?

    Hehe -- Devonferns - that's exactly my point. That and I still don't see it being worth $99 per year to me, as this is so far the only feature in .mac that I want. Ghoser - sounds good! Glad to see your still interested! J5

    .mac backup?

    Ghoser - I'm having trouble seeing where you're misreading my posts. My point is not that .mac is a bad idea. My point is that I probably won't use it. I'm not as excited about the "digital hub" as Apple's target market of consumers and new internet users. My machines typically see 80% work...

    Will Apple & Jaguar ever support our "older" macs?

    TinkerTool is nice. But it seems like Jaguar doesn't honor the settings as far as anti-aliased text is concerned. I turned aa text off, but it was still blurry. I had to muck with a plist file to get what I wanted, but mail still has the aa text. NoZoom just gets rid of the finder window zooming...

    .mac backup?

    To be honest.. I don't want a .mac account. I'm not a student either. My complaint is that something like "backup" should have been a part of Jaguar. The ability to backup to an idisk would be a feature of .mac. The money isn't the issue, it's the fact that you never finish paying for it (vs...

    I've just submitted the project on SourceForge.net for approval, under the name "opendotmac". I'll post again when the project is accepted, or if for any reason rejected. j5

    .mac backup?

    Plastic - I agree with you on your views of the mac community. Seems with all this "switching", we've gained some not-so-cool members, who are used to the type of forums you mention. Ah well. We still have a strong community. The folks who cause trouble usually have a short attention span...

    help need on building .mac backup alternative

    Hey all - I've decided to start work on an alternative backup app, to compete with Apple's latest .mac offerings. To avoid duplication - here's the link to my other thread: http://www.macosx.com/forums/showthread.php?threadid=22079 The app will be open-source and free. I just need a...

    Will Apple & Jaguar ever support our "older" macs?

    I think the best thing Apple can do is add some more customization options to 10, for us older 'bookers. That's all I want really. I know with my ancient powerbook, that I'm never going to see qe. It's just not possible. But what would make me happy, and something I've posted here before, is a...

    Gateway's iMac look-alike!

    I guess if they wanted to fairly compare, then yes. But I don't think that is their objective. They really just want to sell computers! (startling revelation!) But Apple has definitely used these same marketing tactics. Look at Karavite(sp?)'s post on the "real world qe performance". Everyone...
