Azureus has been having loads of trouble in Mac OS for quite a few users as of late. I'm not sure how much of that has been resolved in the past month, but that might be part of your problem. If your system was running properly after the restore and continued to do so until you started mucking around with the P2P software, you're probably pointing your finger in the wrong direction.
Only way you'll be running XP without some insane custom hardware modding is in Virtual PC, and I wouldn't wish Virtual PC upon a person I hated with all my heart and soul. If you're looking for Windows-compatible bang in a small package, why not invest in a Mac Mini?
Dawn wallpaper I put together some time back from scanned artwork. Edit: and for what it is worth, Parallels: My cat.
You know... I've been wondering a bit about this myself. First, the Mac will handle the display without a hitch. It wouldn't even break a sweat powering it, let alone a Mac Pro with an 8800 GT. That thing could power the plasma television in its sleep whilst simultaneously fighting off three wild tigers. And as mentioned above, a DVI->HDMI adapter is all you need. That said, the key concern here is Plasma Television. Plasma Televisions were once famous for burn-in...
Where's the substance? What insight beyond what is currently being discussed does a PC-related background give a person? nagromme's reply, in my eyes, was comprehensive and extremely well written. I especially love the part about people with old computers criticizing the MBA's ability to do the things they currently due do its 'poor specifications'. I am a graphics and web designer and, unhappy with the progression of the Mac Pro (waiting for the magic release), and...
I was thinking about where to start in my reply, but that does just fine. Microsoft needed to get their act together with Vista and remake the OS from the ground up to place themselves on par with Apple. Their security problems would be better addressed from this perspective and it would make future Microsoft updates far less intrusive. I think it fell apart due to the Microsoft bureaucracy, which is actually a shame (this being the chief complaint of Microsoft...
Vista is better tested than Mac OS? Maybe I'm misunderstanding you, but that statement is pretty far out there. Vista feels like OS 10.0. It is slow, buggy, and when it crashes it crashes hard. 10.5 was a little frustrating for me at first, but it turns out that was only because I've been Acrhive/Installing since, what, 10.3? My user profile has accumulated junk since that time. After seeing how fantastic Leopard worked on my bro's new iMac I re-installed Leopard and...
Worked for me. And I can assure everyone that I haven't gone to AOL before on this computer.Besides, you can tell when auto-complete is kicking in. The suggestions will appear below and the auto-completed portion will appear after your cursor highlighted. If you are just typing in a domain (e.g. 'aol') and seeing nothing, auto-complete is not kicking in.This may be associated with your Domain Name Server, which for most people will be decided by their ISP. There is...
Love it. Adore it, even. I'm scared of breaking it outside warranty.
Yeah, I tossed a 7200 RPM HDD in my Macbook (Core Duo). Before doing so I spent a few hours online researching all the latest 7200 RPM drives. I checked speed benchmarks and paid careful attention to notes on heat and noise. This information is not hard to find. I think in the end I wound up putting a Hitachi hard drive in, but please note that a lot has changed since that date, and there will almost certainly be a better choice now. I maxed out the RAM too. The machine...
