    Good USB headset for podcasts?

    I'd go for the Plantronics 650 myself. http://www.amazon.com/Plantronics-Multimed...pd_bxgy_e_img_a

    Spring Cleaning an iMac, whats the best way to do it?

    Sounds like you're looking for Archive and Install. You can read more about that installation method here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1710 Make sure you have a backup of all your important data. (Music, photos, mail etc)

    iMac G5 long in the tooth

    A fresh install might help a little bit. Even though OS X doesn't have same register problems that Windows have, stuff do get thrown all over the place, and after a while it will make your machine slow. Being low on disk space will also make OS X slow, but 15GB should be enough. Other than updating the whole machine, the only thing I can think of that's pretty easy is a fresh install. Make sure you have a good backup, don't make a full bootable backup and restore that, as it will make the "fresh" thing disappear. Get all of the music and photos etc over to an external backup and just copy those files back when you're done. Be careful when it comes to mail. If you've used Mail.app (or any other mail app for that matter) and POP, all of your mail is stored on the disk, and not on a server, so make sure to have a backup of that, if POP is the case.

    How do I trancfer the data?

    You can probably use the external backup without any problems. Just make sure it's a bootable full backup, and the mac you get from the store should be able to boot from that drive. http://tinyurl.com/dfyefx

    Keeping my iMac cool

    No CPU should go that hot, no matter what. Since your iMac is from sometime in 2008 (it is, right?) you should contact Apple today and see what they say. A temp that high will start to fry your CPU, resulting in a spectacular crash in the not so distant future.

    New to iPod touch

    Some information about what you're looking for, and how you plan on using your new Touch would go a long way to help you find some awesome apps.

    What will get up to almost 200? The CPU? In any case, it's not good. If it's still under warranty, I'd give apple a call.

    Monitoring local network traffic

    No reason to wait, you can't really do anything wrong by trying.

    Monitoring local network traffic

    Oh, right. I misunderstood you there. Well, if you change to tcpdump -v -i lo0 you'll get the tcpdump of loopback I believe. I'm no programmer, but I'd think it depends on the programming. If it's set to use loopback or go to the router and back in again, then it would go in and out on the same interface.

    Monitoring local network traffic

    Well, you could always do a tcpdump in the terminal For ethernet it would probably be tcpdump -v -i en0 and for the wireless card tcpdump -v -i en1 A word of warning; It aint pretty. The output will look something like this Macintosh:~ kjes$ tcpdump -v -i en1 tcpdump: listening on en1, link-type EN10MB (Ethernet), capture size 96 bytes 16:01:56.708022 IP (tos 0x10, ttl 64, id 63565, offset 0, flags [DF], proto TCP (6), length 164) > P 931366934:931367046(112) ack 552970500 win 1253 <nop,nop,timestamp 813821 163848847> 16:01:56.708120 IP (tos 0x10, ttl 64, id 5076, offset 0, flags [DF], proto TCP (6), length 52) > ., cksum 0x5233 (correct), ack 112 win 65535 <nop,nop,timestamp 163848857 813821> 16:01:57.660803 IP (tos 0x0, ttl 64, id 65157, offset 0, flags [none], proto UDP (17), length 67) > 57015+ PTR?

    Encrypting Time Machine backup

    I used to use FileVault (the encryption technology built in to OS X), and use Carbon Copy Cloner to backup my laptop. But something kept bothering me, I couldn't understand how I could get a proper backup of my drive while logged in to the machine, knowing what I know about how (whole-disk) encryption works, so I checked the CCC website, and found my suspicions to be correct: http://www.bombich.com/software/docs/CCCHe...l?page=overview It's worth noting that this will probably be an issue with other means of whole-disk encryption, as well as FileVault, as I belive they all use pretty much the same methods for encrypting the disk.

    Resize Windows like expose

    The demo video doesn't work for me, so I can't see if this is what you need, but it's worth looking at. http://coderage-software.com/zooom/ Hope it helps
