    HardwareWhat is there to say that hasn't been said by a million others? I might assemble my ideas here. I have a couple comments from watching the keynote below. Otherwise, for now, it's just a few links to bits and pieces straight from the horses' mouths.

    HardwareThere is an unusually large overlap between the PowerMac and iMac lines. The midrange iMac seems to be everything the base PowerMac is, and more. (Minus internal expandability, of course.) Update: The single-CPU PowerMac G5 is no more.

    Networking/ServingThis guy has an absolutely incredible, pretty detailed list of explainations on how to do all kinds of neat things with a Mac: web serving, MySQL, weblogs, etc. The one thing he stops short on is Postfix.

    Contributed by: Admin

    HardwareEver since the Mac Mini came out, the one thing I wished it had was more ports, especially on the front of the unit. The few ports on the Mini are inconveniently on the back of the unit and very crowded. I envision a base station, shaped like the Mini and maybe an inch tall.

    HardwareI have two Sony DVMCs, a DA1 and a DA2. As has been reported here, iMovie 05 does not work with the DA1. It does work with the DA2. Both work fine in iMovie 04. If you try to reinstall iMovie 04, it will complain that a newer version is already present. Here's how to fix that.

    OS X annoyances Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version  
    Tuesday, April 05 2005 @ 02:07 PM EDT
    Contributed by: Admin

    Mac OS XThis is just a place for me to list all the little things that bug me about OS X. Most are true 'flaws' (or, at least, 'things that could easily be fixed'), not just gripes like 'I think the window buttons should be orange, purple, and blue instead of red, yellow, green.' Some are OS X flaws, some are application flaws. If they're application flaws I list them anyway if they're specific to the OS X version of that application (as opposed to Windows) like the clipboard flaw described below. UPDATE: Tiger is out but I don't have it yet. All these flaws are in OS X 10.3/Panther.

    Mac OS XThis started out as a brief overview of how OS X deals with the UNIX concept of a user named 'root.' However, I quickly found that I have to talk about the way OS X handles users in general to cover that. As far as I know, the information here is correct. If you see any errors or inaccuracies, please mention them in the comments.

    Setting up Geeklog on Mac OS X Email Article To a Friend View Printable Version

    Networking/ServingHere's my guide to setting up Geeklog (1.3.11) on Mac OS X (non-Server, OS X 10.3.7). It's a bit thin but it hits all the high points. Consider this an OS X-specific 'cheat-sheet' addition to the mostly excellent included documentation.
