    Joost and Proxy's

    So I just fired up Joost for the first time in a few months and was surprised to be greeted with a new warning message. It said that since I was using a proxy I couldn't use Joost anymore. My question is how do I get rid of the proxy? I haven't done anything to my knowledge since I last used it except move. I have the same ISP, the same router, even the same modem. I don't remember going into the network settings and change anything and when I go there now it confirms I don't have any proxy's running. My ISP is Comcast, Motorola Modem, and a Linksys wireless router if that helps at all

    No ip address for wireless

    I have been fighting with my wireless router for the past few days and have given up. I have a Belkin Wireless G router model number F5D7230-4. I have it all connected and it works when I am wired into the router, but as soon as I attempt to go wireless I lose connection. After looking at the network panel in my system preferences I discovered my airport doesn't have an ip address. I know the airport works because when I bring my macbook to school it works like a charm, but it doesn't work at my apartment. My network status says the same thing that I discovered, I am connected to the router, but don't have an ip address so I cannot connect to the internet. Any suggestions? Thanks -Billy

    File in use?

    I'm having a problem with my iPod and updating it. Whenever I plug it into my computer a window pops up saying that the my iPod can't be updated because the file is in use. I also get the same when I attempt to eject my iPod from iTunes. The iPod updates fine and if I drag my iPod to the eject button on my dock it works fine, but the window really annoys me. Any ideas on how to get rid of the message or fix what is wrong? Thanks

    Smart Playlist help

    I am trying to setup a smart playlist with the following rules, but am having troubles. I would like a "No Repeat Favorites" playlist with the following rules: All my 4 and 5-star rated songs Have not Played in the last 2 days Have not been skipped in the last 2 days. Those are all easy and I have it setup, but i have one more request that I cannot figure out how to do. I would like my list to take out all versions of the same song if one has played. For example, I am a huge Dave Matthews Band fan and have 7 different versions of the song "Antsmarching" I would like to have a rule so that when one of the versions is played, all 7 are taken out of rotation for the next two days so I don't have multiple versions of the same song play while I am working. Thanks for all of your help!

    Sim City 4

    I just got a copy of Sim City 4 Rush Hour, and can't play it. I will get to the main screen, and when i want to go into a specific area to start a city the program crashes. I am on a macbook, so could there be something in it because it may not be universal? Any help would be great!

    iTunes 7

    My first impressions are very positive so far. However I do have on annoyance allready. In the view with all the album art that you can shuffel through, I have Some CD's with multiple artists, and each artist on that album shows the same album art image. It is very annoying already when I am flipping through the album art to see a string of 15 covers with the same image because it's a compilation CD with 15 different artists. Overall I would give it an 7.5/10 I really like the "jukebox" and the overall interface, my only annoyance is the multiple images repeated

    Leopard preview

    As one of the 50% of new mac users being first time users I am wondering a few cost things. Will I have to buy leopard after just shelling out the money for my macbook, or because I already have OSX tiger will it update automatically. Also, what would your guess for the cost be based on previous upgrades.

    TV tuner for Mac

    Has anyone used a slingbox? I have been curious about them for a while, but jsut haven't heard anything from mac users about it.

    I have heard a lot about the slingbox lately and have been really intrigued by it. I was wondering if anyone has a slingbox, and if they would be willing to review it.

    Is .mac worth it?

    I have been toying around with the idea of getting a .mac account to host photos when I study in Italy next spring. My question is...is a .mac account really worth the money. I am EXTREMELY cheap, and chringe when I spend more than $20. Is it worth the $66ish a year that my student discount gets me for the services it provides?

    Should I get a Macbook?

    New twist...I looked into deals, and If I buy before Saturday I can get a free printer and free iPod nano after rebates for both of them. Should I get it before the printer deal ends on saturday, or wait until closer to school. I don't "need" either the printer or nano, but if they're free why not take it?

    Should I get a Macbook?

    Sometimes ebay has a good deal. I don't trust Ebay. I've been ripped off too many times on Ebay to spend more than $15 on anything
