  • If you're worried about various bits and pieces lingering in the system (pref files etc), you might want to check out AppZapper. Takes up 2Mb of disk space and makes a really cool noise as well. Lightweight and gorgeous.

  • I've heard great things about Western Digital. However, I've had 2 very bad experiences with external Lacie 250GB drives where I lost alot of data. When the problem occured I scoured the internet for a solution and quickly found out that quite a …
  • Actually, I forgot to mention that when I turned to SoundConverter (around 9 months ago now) I searched far and wide for a cheap/free/functional converter app. I can't recall why, but at the time SoundConverter definitely seemed to be my only opt…
  • SoundConverter also does this. Great little app. Got it just to do exactly what your asking for. http://www.dekorte.com/projects/shar...oundConverter/ Very clean, simple and full of Cocoa goodness.
  • I was actually stunned to see that the Iphoto 6 app uses well over 500 Mb of space. This is a bit much for what is (if I'm being a wee bit harsh) an image viewer.

  • I've been using Vectorworks and Formz for years in an architecture / product design practice- quite a good little combo for 2d drafting and 3d work as long as you don't need photorealism and good animation. However, I've recently started usin May…
  • Just what I was thinking. I'm about to get a Macpro- the cheapest one I can afford (I'm a Maya junkie). Having to settle for the 7300 sure will feel alot better if I know that I can eventually settle for one of those tasty burgers sometime dow…
  • Thanks alot for your feedback guys. You've saved me alot of time. What a bummer, eh? Maybe it's time to move to a different audio player after all. Thanks again, nice to get some tips of a couple of AI heavyweights.
  • Sounds good! Try and get a copy of 'Cosmic Osmo and the Worlds Beyond the Mackerel' to work. (abandonware, ebay?) wiki
  • Lacie and Iomega both give away free backup software with their hard drives. I've used them both and they seem okay. The Lacie one seemed far more robust to be honest so I'd go for that. I suspect that you can use them with any hard drive though I m…
  • I got an external LaCie 250GB D2 about 18 months ago. I've beeen getting the click of death and mount faliures since January. Lacie tech support say it might be an issue with the power supply: "Thank you for contacting LaCie Technical Support.…
  • Just my 10pence: I bought a Lacie 250Gb D2 external a year and a half ago and it failed quite recently- an awful clicking noise when it tried to access the data then nothing. It wouldn't even mount onto the desktop. As I scoured the web for a …
  • Any reason why the remote couldn't be a bluetooth device? Just a thought.
  • You've both been very helpful and encouraging, thanks again. The Python homepage is pretty good: http://www.python.org/ Again, I have to say, it all seems to have a very nice feel to it from the website to the documentation. Ah well, here w…
  • Quote: Originally posted by Marvin IMO Perl syntax is ugly. Python is very nice. Objective-C is confusing but programmers like it because it's a pure object oriented language. Objective-C is the best in terms of performance but you have to dea…
  • Thanks for the links- really helpful. I think now that the problem may be that the Microtech scsi-usb adaptor needs some driver software- I have searched the web high and low for this to no avail. Various forum posts seem to suggest that I'm h…
  • Now that OS X will be running on similar hardware to PC's, I think it will be really interesting to see which machines run certain pro apps best. What I mean is, if we have something like Photoshop running on two different machines natively (even…
  • I've always suspected that the switch wasn't primarily about a move Intel so much as a move to having a processor-independent OS. The Rosetta technolgy would obviously be an important part of the process to achieve this. Apple have been held b…
