  1. Hey Gang, I am looking for software to allow me to assign and manage tasks from my team on the Mac. I am currently using a GTD app (The Hit List) which is really not made for that type of thing. Looking for some suggestions! Many thanks in advance! SW

    Which PCMCIA USB 2.0 Card for G4 PowerBook?

    >EEK< Indeed I do. For some reason I thought they were USB 1.1 because I have a USB 2.0 external drive that seems to max out at around 12MB's a second. I'm going to check to see if I need a driver for the drive. Thanks for the quick reply!
  3. Hi Gang, I have several USB 2.0 external Hard Drives and I would like to be able to use them at full speed on my 15" 1.25gHz PowerBook. The only way I see doing that is by using a PCMCIA USB 2.0 card. So my question to ya'll is which ones have you had success with? I several that "support" Mac OS X but I would like to be sure before I buy anything. Any help will be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    iBook or PowerBook

    Here's another thought. Get a 12" Powerbook, 1gb of ram and an external monitor. I think you would wind up with much more for your money especially if the new employer would supply the monitor. I use Dreamweaver all day long on 2 17" Studio Displays (1280 x 1024) and still wish I had more screen real estate! The 12" Powerbook would give you decent power, be easy to carry to and from work and costs less than a 15" (which I have and love) Just a thought.

    Katrina Donation Match & nano Donations

    Adam, First I want to express to you that it is totally awesome that you are doubling the donations for Katrina. Second I think that taking donations for the nano give away is a supurb idea. Personally I would not expect you to reach into your wallet for a give away like this. I think it is great that we can all throw in a few bucks for a chance to win a nano and if we give to much the rest goes to the Katrina effort. Good form! You have my vote to proceed. And once again, keep up the great work. Mike

    Mail ignores my mouse sometimes

    I have the weirdest bug. Every now and then I will be composing an email or reading emails and my mouse will no longer interact with the mail app. It's the strangest thing. I can quit mail from my keyboard and launch it again and it works fine. Anyone experience this? I am running Tiger 10.4.2 with all of the patches available from software download. Weird huh?

    iPod name usage

    But, they are McDonald's. http://www.mcdonalds.com/ Is the Big Mac in danger? >shudders< Or... bipod | noun a two-legged stand or support. Because a Bipod has an iPod in it! Oh the implications! :shock:

    Mike's Lame Blog [website] [feed] Shamelessly plugging my blog, thanks Adam! I talk about weird stuff that happens in my life, of course Mac stuff, and sometimes I get off a good rant about something that really pushes my buttons like when I got a parking ticket in front of my own home Keep up the great work Adam!

    Switched my mom!

    I finally got my mom off her old 333mHz Windows 98 paper weight! She just bought a new 12" iBook. I brought her to the Apple Store here in Germantown Tennessee and we played with the different models and she decided she liked the size and price of the iBook. It came with Bluetooth and Airport built in, nice deal, as well as a $100.00 rebate towards a new printer. I spent the weekend teaching her iLife apps, Mail and Safari. So far she totally loves it especially iPhoto. Just wanted to share the news with the Maccast crew.
