  • Nice. Turns out I jumped the gun. Still having Thread 0 crashes. I'll have to take the machine in afterall...
  • Isaac. Assuming you've ruled out actual other issues (disk utility, permissions repair, hardware test), have you confirmed with the manufacturer that it works with your OS version? Has it ever worked properly? If so, what changed before it started …
  • Obviously no one else had any insight so Google to the rescue. A quick summary of how I seem to have solved the mystery. Ran Disk Utility off of the Leopard DVD. No problems found Ran Hardware Test off of the restore DVD that came with the Macbo…
  • Through my research (just over a year ago), it came down to QB and MYOB. I chose MYOB because of the customization feature for their forms and the fact that the interface seemed more intuitive than QB. Overall, I think it was simply a decision over …

  • Thank you all for the input...very helpful. An additional question: My new company is a service business that calls on companies all around the southeast. Does anyone have experience with a Mac mapping software that also handles routing, logistic…

  • UPDATE: After much study of your postings, gnashing of teeth and contemplative drinking, I think we are going to go with a G4 Xserve (maybe refurb). The licensing costs and hardware access were the main reasons. The refurb units (esp. from smalld…
  • Quote: Originally posted by Matt FT Re: Hardware, I would pick up an old G4 XServe. There is nothing worse then a hardware failure. While I am sure a Tower will be nearly as reliable, I am willing to pay not to be woken up at 4.30 am becasue …
  • Quote: Originally posted by piwozniak Cog, hehe, i tried to used that form as well, i guess it goes straight to trash somewhere, call them up! Why would you not host your website in-house? Is there a bandwidth issue or you just don't feel conf…
  • Great discussion and information, all of you. Thank you for the spirited input. To update: -Apple has yet to contact me concerning my business needs. Spent the 5 minutes on the web filling out the form.....zip for my efforts. -Setup meetings w…
  • Quote: Originally posted by dfiler I would suggest a tower. A tower and a copy of OS X server will likely be easier to work with and will be MUCH cheaper. Wow! Thank you dflier! The cost is certainly an issue as is the rack mount..the cost…

  • Thanks to everyone that contributed to this discussion. With your comments and additions, I carefully selected a 17" PB and expect it tomorrow. Now, how about a case? I need a briefcase style, preferably leather. Any suggestions? cog
