    DTMF tones in Skype?

    I have found if you wait for the message to quit and then wait a second or two and then enter the numbers it works really good.

    iMac and a Windows Machine

    I am thinking of getting a iMac 24" but I have a windows Gaming machine that I want to be able to use the iMac monitor with the windows machine. I am thinking with the dvi-out I can hook that up to a kvm switch and then use the pc on the iMac. Also trying to see if having a extra monitor hooked up to the iMac, how I can get the pc to use at least one of the monitors to play whatever game I am playing. Its hard to figure it out, since I haven't owned a iMac in a long time. I would hate to buy one and it not work how I imagine it to work. Anyone have any ideas or real world experience with this?

    Move Movie, Music, and Picture folder

    ok cool thanks
  7. I am using the program Connect360 and I have all my movies, music and pictures on a different drive than my main OS X drive. I have been searching for the commands to tell OS X where my folder are. For some reason Connect360 only looks in the folders specified by OS X. I did a search and can't seem to find any thing.

    Keychain Help

    I am having problems with my Keychain and need some help. I noticed the problem with the Mail app. I can't check my email because it ask for my password now. Well that simple I put my password in and tell it to save it to the keychain. Well I get a popup that says Keychain not found. It asks do I want to reset to Default or cancel. I don't know what to do. I decided to click reset to default but nothing happens. I went into keychain access and tried to verify and it says there is no keychain there, and I even tried to repair the keychain and it gives me errors saying it can't open the keychain. Anyone know what to do?

    Mail app and learning spam

    I did some searching and saw a few topics on the mac mail app and spam. My webserver does a good job of stopping most spam, but a few get through. Now I have the junk email feature turned on and for a couple of days had it mark junk email. I noticed it did a pretty good job, but now that I have it sending them to the junk folder it send good emails there also. Its not labeling them as junk, but sends them there anyways. Is there something I am doing wrong?

    Mac Mini Core 2 Duo

    Does anyone think that Apple will come out with a Core 2 Duo mac mini, or has anyone heard that they are for a fact?

    Mac Mini Core 2 Duo

    Yeah I have a core solo. I wanted to upgrade, but didn't want to pull a Leo Laporte and it come out after I bought a current revision.

    What a major screw up to go with Cingular. The iphone won't sell as much as it could if it was open to all networks. I would buy one as soon as they came out if it was on the Altell network. To bad apple try again.

    ipod needs to be fixed

    Well I noticed yesterday that only the left side of my headset was workin when plugged into my 6 month old ipod. Thought it was my headset, but come to find out its my ipod. What do I need to do to get this fixed? It seems to be the jack, because if I pull the audio connector out a little bit the right side work. It then pauses because the ipod thinks it is unplugged. I figure I need to take it to the nearest ipod store, right?

    I would look into something like feedburner. I think it tells you how many people are subscribed. www.feedburner.com

    ichat Help Needed!

    No this is the first time I tried it. I tried it behind the same router and it worked fine. I looked at the ports that were open on the router and tweaked it a bit. So when I go home I will see if I got it right this time.

    Lexmark P3150

    I guess there is no way to get it to work then? What if I put it on a windows machine and share it. Would it work then?

    Front Row 4:3 stretch

    Your tv should be able to stretch it. When I have stuff that plays in 4:3 through my mac, I just zoom or stretch it.
