Re: outlook express 5 freezing in Mac OS 8.1

I'm pretty sure mac os 9 wouldn't' be a great option for mine, plus I have 9.2 and my performa can only run up to 9.1 if if I remember right.

Re: G operating system?

I tried it... but as with any other linux distro... it confuses me greatly! But it's very very similar to ubuntu, and the newest version lookes a lot like os x.

My question is, since I only have machine specific tiger disks for other computers, will this get around that and let me install on the ibook? I will be using a macbook hooked u...

Re: New Apple Banner Video Ad at PC Magazine

Those commercials are just getting annoying to me... instead of bashing vista constantly, why not talk about the macs features or something less annoying? And don't get me wrong bashing windows is fun but they should really not stoop to that level on their commercials.

Last one in Green Bay WI was in 1959... didn't they say on the news that that town was being bought by the govt anyway since it's so polluted or something?

Re: Introducing New Cat, lots of Fights...

Ha! thought you were talking about mac os x for a minute... If they're not actually hurting each other they should hopefully get used to each other. Declawed I assume? When we first got our kitten the other cat wanted nothing to do with it but the kitten wanted to be best friends with it, now they b...

Re: iBook G3 clamshell battery won't work after panther install

Neither of the batteries show up in the system profiler, and no clue when it was manufactured. When I was swapping batteries the light changed and indicated it was charging, but what I tried later it still didn't charge that battery.

iBook G3 clamshell battery won't work after panther install

I have an indigo clamshell ibook that I installed panther on a few months ago. Since then the battery (which is a 3rd party about 9 month old battery from sib usa) will not charge. It recognizes the battery and used it until the juice was gone then wouldn't charge it. The light on the power adapter ...

Re: iMac Screen Dimness

It would brighten back up after moving the mouse, taping the keyboard and such, but I didn't want it to go dim because it was annoying when reading articles and watching youtube videos... but when I turned off the setting to make it do that it still would.

It seems that upgrading to Leopard did the trick, it works fine now... weird that Apple never addressed it with Tiger.

I did update a little like changing the closed status to open and adding that it was reopened, but really someone who has more writing experience should do it! -Although I did get an A on my final for ALA 9 last year:-D

Ya i saw that you wrote it when I looked into the history... My thinking was that it would be a good idea for you to do since you were the one who restarted it and would know the most about it
