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

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.
Install...When is a Mac not a Mac?
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 ...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?

March 26, 2008 tragicallyunhip
Yanno. for years we've had to listen to Mac users go on and on and ON in the
superior tone about how great Macs are and about how they just never break.
Well, let me tell you, I have spent enough years in IT to know they do. A
My last job was at a company whose graphics department was, as you might
expect, Mac-based. And I spent just as much time down there working on them
as I did ANY PC.
But that's just the tip of the iceberg. What about the whole Mav VS PC
thing? What about those annoying "I'm a Mac" ads? I tell you, I want to get
that obnoxious Mac guy and bash his face in with a $*^&ing hammer! Why do
Mac feel the need to slag off PCs just to advertise their own product? Have
they got nothing to say about their own hardware and software that speaks
for itself? Does everything have to be based on this ridiculous childish
anti-PC thing? Yanno what Mac? NOBODY GIVES A SHIT! Get over yourselves.
Advertise your product based on its own (limited) merits. Christ, even
entering the network properties of a Mac OS to see the PCs you're connected
to in your network, the icon for the PCs is a crappy looking old beige
monitor with a BSOD error on it! I mean, GROW UP! Nobody wants to know. And
speaking of BSOD, I have one word Mac: LEOPARD! Code name Train Wreck!

Put an ethernet cable between them, enable tcp/ip and file sharing on
one and log on from the other, seems to be what you are asking for? And
you do not need a cross-over cable between modern Macs.

Is it possible to connect two MAC (SGMII) directly point-to-point,
