To Mac or not to Mac?
What ho, pre-pressers! Long time no post, or view, come to that. No
doubt some of you will remember me as I see that many of same crowd are
**STILL** here after all these years. Grettings to Aandi, Ted, Lee,
Allen...well, to you all, not forgetting Mr Shagnasty, who I am
gratified can still find something to say after all this time.
Right, greetings over, down to brass tacks. My early retirement plan has
sadly fallen through and I find myself back at the coal face possessed
of some pretty antideluvian equipment with which to earn a crust for the
Tree family. So I'm looking for **SE...Mac to mac
I just remembered these groups and wondered if someone here could tell
me whether what I'd like to do is possible. (NO ONE around here knows
anything about Macs)
I have a G4 that was the top of the line in 1998. It will die one of
these days. It's currently running OS 9.2.2. Someone else(who now lives
far away) installed the internal modem, SCSI for my scanner, and my
floppy drive (so I didn't have to go through hundreds of them for the
bits and pieces I might someday want again). I still have the floppies
and a number of Zips, all of which this computer can read.

This was posted in a forum recently and I thought it brought up some
very interesting points relating to the Eula. For reference:
This question is related to licensing OS X on a machine. The EULA says
it has to be an Apple computer, before the Apple License will apply,
which means Apple will only support OS X on Apple machines. So, I'm
wondering, when is a machine considered an Apple Mac, for the purposes
of Licensing and recieving support? Say I buy a Mac from Apple. Then the
hard drive fails, and I replace that with an ...InDesign: Mac vs PC (was Quark: Mac vs PC)
As I've pointed out to the employee who uses Quark on a Mac at the
nonprofit, it's possible that she doesn't use enough of the features of
Quark to test its limitations, whether Mac or PC.
What about InDesign? If she's not using the wide range of features,
including those which make it superior to Quark, does it matter on which
platform she uses it? Is it any more difficult to learn than Quark?
If you want to think positive thoughts, surround yourself with positive people.
If you want to email me, eliminate the negative.
...Help! iSync mac to mac
Am I right in saying that with iSync, if you want to sync 2 macs
together (address book, iCal etc.) the only way to do this is via a
..Mac account, even if those computers are sitting not 5 feet from each
other, both Airport equipped? If this is the case, I've never heard
anything so ridiculous. Is this just part of another apple scam to get
more money out of us?
Does anyone know if this is indeed the case, and can you recommend any
other sync software out there?

I can't find these in the ports collections, so i've downloaded and compiled
mac and xmms-mac successfully and have confirmed that they work on FreeBSD.
I was looking for an APE (Monkey Audio) plug-in for XMMS in the ports
collection but wasn't able to find one.
I had a bit of trouble with compiling xmms-mac to start off with.
The compilation would fail with the following:

I couldn't sympathize more with you since I had a similar problem. It's
not that I'm not rich enough to buy those nice Macs... but I'd rather
keep things this way.
So, finally, I found a Mac that suits my needs and wallet. The problem,
if you have space concerns, is that it looks more like a Mac Pro than a
iMac. But check the specs compared to an iMac:

Now that developers have had a chance to run Intel and PPC Macs side by
side, are there any clues to suggest that Intel CPU holds more promise
for speed? Also, if there is a Safari for MacTel boxes, how does
Safari compare to IE on a Wintel box?

We didn't need dev boxes for that, we have eg. barefeats.com doing
reasonably well-designed tests.

Suggestions for a new laptop?
Okay, the previous time I asked this question, I decided that buying a big
desktop machine would be preferable, but I am currently traveling and I am
pained at the speed of my current laptop.
Therefore, I am going to need a new one. I am the happy owner of a Mac Book
Pro, but I can't really justify purchasing a new Mac given the cost of a new
Mac vs. a comparable PC. The Mac tax just doesn't pay for itself at those
levels for me.

The main MAC has approx 20,000 files that they share and update.
One of the people will be moving away and they want to be able to
connect over the Internet to the main MAC and share the files just
like they do in the office today. They need to be able to have the

OK, so Apple's going to go to Intel CPUs. Now Macs are no longer
differentiated by a slow clock and superior instruction set--we've got
the same hackjob clusterfuck on speed PCs have been using for decades
now. And over the last few years Apple's gone away from SCSI, NuBus,
ADB, Localtalk, etc. And PCs have picked up USB, dropped floppies, and

I connect a crossover cable between my PB, and other macs running OS9,
and can not mount see the other mac on my PB. Have followed the Help,
but must be doing something wrong somewhere. I can however see/connect
to my PB from the peripheral mac via the Chooser.
I have not been able to connect to windoze machines either, but maybe
that will rsolve if I can get mac to mac sharing happening.
Can someone suggest what I may be overlooking or a relevant site... ?
