  • I agree... Hopefully the cooler running Pentium-M derived desktops will allow us to have a case with: - More than 2 hard drive bays - More than 1 optical drive bay
  • bah, I'm going back to bed for a while. Bastards.
  • When is the Paris Expo? September? C'mon Apple... give us an update. I'll buy one. Promise.
  • The US Apple Store says it can ship the same day. Drats.
  • I don't know either, but I want to get a mini as well. I was going to get an iMac G5, but will wait now that the intel switch is happening. I already have a 22" monitor, so a mini will be perfect. The eMac already has a 64MB Radeon 9600... …

  • Unfortunately, no. The PF firewall is integrated into the OpenBSD and FreeBSD kernels (I'm 99% sure). Since Mac OS X uses a hybrid Mach/FreeBSD kernel, PF isn't available.
  • If you're willing to learn a little UNIX, you can do this with a cheap PC. 1) Get yourself a 486 or Pentium 1 from a dumpster or attic and install OpenBSD or FreeBSD on it (I prefer OpenBSD). 2) Turn on the PF packet filter 3) Configure …
  • Besides being dog-ass slow? Nothings wrong with it.
  • I was in the same boat as you, and went with the Rev A refurb for $1999. Why? Because of the video card. The Rev B refurb has the suck-a-licous GeForceFX 5200. It runs nice and quiet, and trust me when I say that I'm annoyed by loud machin…
  • I think the makers of MacDrive offer a 30-day trial version if all you need to do is a one time transfer.

  • Quote: Originally posted by Gon I consider the UT2004 bot deathmatch hardly playable, so I wouldn't even try against human opponents. Wouldn't playing against human opponents be faster than bots because the CPU isn't busy doing all the bot AI …
  • With that much RAM, it will run 10.3 just fine for basic use. The tricky thing is that there were two different model TiBook 667's. One was the old top of the line model with a VGA port and 1184x768 screen (or something like that), and the o…
  • I'd like to see some sort of small box with an attached arm to hold up the computer. 3 inches tall and 10 inches wide, or thereabouts. The box would have room for devices that would run off cables plugged into the back of the machine. Module…
  • If I add RAM myself, will it void the 1 yr warranty and/or the Apple Care warranty? Nope, your warranty will not be voided. According to Apple, memory is a user-installable part. The specifications say "up to 6 hour" battery life, and that i…

  • 1) Install the Developer Tools 2) open a terminal window 3) Type: "sudo /Developer/Tools/SetFile -a V /path/to/folder" (/path/to/folder is the location of the file you want to make invisible) you'll be prompted for your account password …
  • Quote: Originally posted by rok btw, if there is an alien BORN from a predator, i predict that lone predalien will kick all sorts of unholy ass. Wow, I never even thought of the implications of that. That would be worth the price of admissio…
  • Quote: For the upcoming iMac, I'd bet on : - 1.4 to 2.0GHz G5 - AIO form factor - OLED screen - Cheaper to manufacture enclosure (no more ultra-expensive arm for the screen or stuff like that!) - Core Image/Video oriented video cards [/B] I…
