Today, for a hopefully brief period of time, I'm being forced to use a Mac. 
Since these machines are incomprehensible, I need a simple piece of 
information*. I know this is heresy, but . . er . . is there anywhere on the 
Net where peeps answer questions without offering them the choice of (1) $15 
(2) $25 or (3) $50 for the answer.

~ beau (but don't tell anyone I asked this question -- I don't want my 
reputation ruined.)

* I asked the teenager who owns this computer how to copy, to a blank CD in 
the CDR drive, a bunch of files I just downloaded. He said "Whaa? I've never 
done that." I asked him how to view the CDR drive. He said he had no idea. 
There wouldn't be anything particularly odd about this, except that he 
constantly tells me how superior Macs are to PCs. Go figure.

No Mac Help in Mac Help?
When I go to Mac Help in Finder (latest version of OSX Tiger) I get nothing. The window pops up but it's blank. Click on the little house and the initial screen fills in but nothing beyond that. I had a simiar problem with Safari help some time back and someone suggested I remove a folder from Library/Caches, (com.apple.helpui or something similar) and that did the trick for Safari's help. I honestly don't recall if I've ever had the Mac Help or I've just never used it since this machine. The problem happens on or offline so I'm not sure where the Mac Help file resides. I've tried re-installing the original OSX Tiger that came with the machine (G4 Powerbook) but it won't allow me to since I've upgraded to the latest version. The documentation that came with the OSX is more of an advertising brochure than anything that resembles help text. Any suggestions. Could the help file be online somewhere for download?

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'm setting up an iMac, eMac and powerbook g4 for a friend's office, all running OSX Panther, and you'd think basi...

It's a Mac, Mac, Mac World
I wonder how the Windows users would like my (ab)normal Microsoft-free world: My business: all Mac, no PCs. My dentist, family physician and urologist are all Mac. No PCs. Went to Sir Speedy today for more bus. cards and some binding: all Mac (no surprise there). My daughter's three new college room mates have emailed her. Two have PowerBooks and one has an eMac. (She has a G5 iMac.) I never even see a PC unless I am at the public library or a store using a Windows POS unit. It never was intentional. I don't scout a place to see what frickin' computer they use. Jus...
