    New Itunes 10's looks Suck!

    Tempted, the grey theme is less quickly understandable for me. I could revert to 9.x but after the faff to revert my iPhone to 3.2 from 4 (performance speed on 4 made it unusable) I am not sure i have the mental energy!

    Safari cmd-w tab behaviour

    Nope, about half the time it closes the whole window (with multiple tabs in it) or at least offers to as i ended up setting it to check with me first.

    Still having this issue with Version 4.0.5 (6531.22.7) - still seems random when it closes a tab and when it closes a window. Any ideas?

    Safari cmd-w tab behaviour

    Hi folks I am confused in Safari 4.0.4 (6531.21.10) on 10.6.2 as to the behaviour of cmd-w when i have tabs open. Sometimes it does as i want it to it shuts the tab, but often it wants to shut the whole window with multiple tabs in it. I can't seem to make any sense of when it does each...

    (Preferably) Dell monitor that's as good as apple Cinema display?

    I believe it was the Dell Ultrasharps that matched the apple displays - and their 22" are only 1680x1050. For 1920x1200 you'd need the dell 24 which is more expensive.

    Dynamic list of movies--geektoool?

    A slightly different approach, I use Xbox Media Centre to act as a frontend to my media library. You can mount drives or folders there, I am wondering if you could do something like mount a smart folder which searched for some criteria, and do it that way.

    For whatever reason they do. I briefly ran an ftp server on a desktop machine where I had a static IP from my ISP. I got my first attempted logon within 5 minutes of booting and once every 5-10 mins thereafter.

    Web Hosting

    I use bluehost - cheap and cheerful, many, many auto-installs via simplescripts. I have had a good customer experience with them. It costs $7/month and has unlimited storage/transfer. The limits are on filecount (they get shirty if you have over 50k) and the bandwidth is acceptable rather than...

    Upgrading an Imac PPC G4 to OSX Tiger

    More than that they only work with the _exact_ same model they shipped with - in short don;t bother with grey disks. Get black ones with big silver X's on them :)
