Well you can do it in AppleScript. And if you can do it in AppleScript you can do it in Terminal... This works for me in Tiger: Paste the following code into terminal and hit return: osascript -l AppleScript -e 'tell application "Firefox"' -e 'OpenURL "http://appleinsider.com"' -e 'end tell' Some documentation:apple's man pageA macosX hints article Hope this helps!
You need to set the mime-type for .dmg files. Assuming that your webserver is running Apache you could do this in an .htaccess file. Here's a link that explains what needs to be added to the .htaccess file.http://macosxhints.com/article.php?s...40211102018600
As Nicholas Negroponte would say: why would want to move the atoms when all you need is the bits? Couldn't you just copy the data from the iMac to the Firewire Drive? If the iMac is not currently usable due to a display problem do it this way: + Plug the firewire drive into your iBook. + Plug the iMac into your iBook via firewire. + Put the iMac into "Target Disk Mode" (see the sticky posting for details on how to do this). When both drives have mounted...
I offered to troubleshoot a friend's Graphite G4 Powermac, he was reporting that it crashed a lot, especially on hot days. He thought it maybe needed a new fan. I get it to my place plug it in and it won't boot at all. No whir of drives, no chime. Nothing. He says it was running fine 3 minutes before he gave it to me and did not open the case. So I am thinking, it has to be either the power supply is fried or a power supply cable is loose. Any advice on how...
Yes you can safely delete they System folder, Applications (Mac OS 9), Documents and Desktop folders. Check to make sure there aren't any Carbon programs in the applications folder that you have been using in X without noticing that they are in the OS 9 folder. I don't think it is worth the trouble to delete these orphan files. In most cases they are just going to be text files that don't take up much room and don't slow down your system. If you are concerned about...
Is the Mac making a PPPoE connection? If so one solution would be to have another device between the mac and the "modem" make the PPPoE connection. You can pick up a router for cheap, configure it with PPPoE on the WAN side and DHCP on the LAN side. As long as you are adding another device you can also look to add more functionality by getting a router/switch or router/wirelessbase. Hope this helps. Edit: sorry overlooked the USB bit. This solution won't work with USB....
That iBook only does 800x600 IIRC. OSX assumes you have a lot of room for icons and such. Try using OSX at 800x600 on another machine and see if you can bear it. Also you will want a LOT of RAM. When the OS runs out of RAM is swaps to the hard drive and the drive in that ibook is very slow.
I recently installed a FW800 drive on an G5/2Ghz Xserve that I administer. I used Retrospect to back up the files to a retrospect archive. Here is a snippet from my log: Code: -3/9/2005 2:26:29 PM: Copying Shared Items on RAID 80… *Separating file backup set: Data file name: Daily Backup 800 Catalog file name: Daily Backup 800.cat 3/9/2005 2:59:46 PM: Execution completed successfully.

I don't know if you are trolling here or not... You do realize that there are way more people in New York City than in Iowa don't you? The population of the city according to the 2000 census is over 8 million. The entire state of Iowa: 3 million. Each day millions more commute into the city from New Jersey, upstate counties, CT and Long Island. 3 Apple stores is nothing. We have 190 Starbucks!http://www.starbuckseverywhere.net/NewYorkCity.htm :-)
Yikes, what is that, like 3 blocks from Tekserve?http://www.tekserve.com/ Tekserve is a NYC institution. Not sure why Apple would want to do something so obviously preditory...
