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.

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...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?

My daughter's three new college room mates have emailed her. Two have

I never even see a PC unless I am at the public library or a store using

It never was intentional. I don't scout a place to see what frickin'
computer they use. Just happened. Kind of weird.
Nice! At work I'm stuck on Windows, plus at home my roommate and
girlfrield both use Windows. Good thing is I have my ibook at work and
both my roommate and gf are getting Macs after their Dell's are paid
off. They use Mac's at work and see how my PowerMac at home works
while their PeeCee's hose daily. They hate Windows now :)
So i'm getting 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:

As part of a design that I'm investigating, I am looking at connecting
a number of FPGA based MACs to a dedicated broadcom switch chip. The
difficulty with this is that to interface both chips, I need to have
two closely coupled and redundant PHY .
Is it possible to connect two MAC (SGMII) directly point-to-point,
bypassing the PHY completely? Or is it necessary to have at least some
PHY functionality, even if it is a point to point link?

Looking for some help.
I am trying to use a 6-6pin 1394 cable to connect two iBooks together and
transfer some large files.

I boot iBook 1 into 'target drive' mode and get the firewire icon dancing
about the screen then connect it to iBook 2
but the drive does not appear on the desktop. I have tried all combinations
of rebooting/ connecting before and after rebooting
but nothing seams to work.
When the firewire is plugged in the target disk makes a short noise then

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,

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... ?

Years ago, I set up a Mac network (under OS9) with a VPN router and some

hardware, software and configuration? Here's the setup I envision:

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

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.

I am looking for recommendations for a used MAC system that I can
use to learn MACs. I have used Unix and Linux for the past 20 years,
but I'd like to understand a little more about how they work. I have
been looking at some used G4 and G5 systems, but not sure if these
will be lame ducks. I would like to kick around at the prompt level
to see how different it is from a normal Unix system , but I'd like to
learn some of the apps and gui stuff too so I don't look like an idiot

<de47fa...Anyone got Mac classic Mac emulation running well on their Intel Mac?
Despite switching to DOSBox and VMware's Fusion with WinXP to handle my
classic gaming needs, there are still a bunch of classic MacOS games I'm
desperate to run on my Intel Mac.
I've tried and failed to get Ballisk and SheepShaver running. Mini vMac
runs but has a nasty, nasty habbit of corrupting disk images opened in
both it and OSX.
Has anyone had any sucess? Why is classic Mac emulation so way behind
other emulation efforts? With Amiga emulation running it's surprising

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!

I currently have two old Macs...let's call them my MAIN Mac (a G4

And, I'm about to purchase a NEW Mac. (3 Macs...MAIN, OTHER and NEW)
What I'd like to do is move virtually everything (user accounts,
applications, settings, documents, etc.) from my current MAIN Mac to my
NEW Mac. I've never actually done this before, but I believe, on
initial install of the NEW Mac, the Mac OS actually asks if you want to
do just this.

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? Thanks in advance!
