7/21    Any recommendations for G4 Powerbook car charger? How about solar?
        You right wing crazies: do you want to overturn Mapp v. Ohio too
        and go back to Weeks v. US or Wolf v CO.
        \_ A friend of mine has the Kensignton universal adapter and he
           likes it:
           Re Mapp - think that it was rightly decided b/c I fundamentally
           mistrust the gov and think that the power of the gov over the
           people should be very limited.
           \_ I agree to a ceertain extent, but I would add that the purpose
              of government is to protect the rights of the people against
              the physical and economic tyranny of the few.
              \_ What does economic tyranny mean? -- ilyas
                 \_ I'm guessing he means Big Bad Bill Gates forcing him
                    to run Windows in order to play DX10 games.

9/25    Urgent help. I have a MacBook Pro and compared to the predecessor
        G4 it is a total piece of shit and I regret getting it. At any
        rate, I upgraded from itunes 6 to itunes 7, and now itunes 7
        crashes every 5 minutes. I deleted it and tried to install itunes 6
        again, but now the itunes 6 GUI keeps saying "Custom Install
        on Mac HD, Package Name iTunes-- Skip". I can't make it install

1/15    I've got a mac G4 laptop and a dell box that I want to play kernel
        hacker  with, but I don't want to keep a bulky monitor around.  Is
        it possible to get a terminal connection from the dell box to the
        laptop?  The dell has USB, serial, PS/2, and VGA (no firewire).
        Any suggestions appreciate, thanks.

        So what happened to all those "G4 chips kick intel butt" folks?
        \_ 2 generations of cpus
           \_ They are also introducing a Intel iMac.  Does that mean the
              G5 will be phase out?  What I really want is a Intel MacMini.

6/7     Why Intel? why not AMD?  They both run on notebooks(unlike the G5)
        Also, does this pave the groundwork for porting OS X to all PC
        \_ You know, you guys are trying to find good technical reasons
           for the move. I think it's actually simpler than that. Economics.
           IBM can't produce their chips cheaper than Intel, which we all

4/30    Any suggestions for a solar panel solution for running a g4 powerbook?
        Do you need a special adapter/voltage controller or can you simply match
        the voltage requirements and trickle charge it?  -scottyg

           camping, i feel the solar options have too high encumberance

12/02   I have only used Mac laptop (powerbook).  However, I am not making
        lots of money these days and mac laptops are just too expensive.
        To those who have used both Mac and PC laptop, are there cheaper,
        faster PC laptops that are no less reliable than the powerbooks?
        Are there going to be features that I will miss if I switch, like
        target disk mode, etc?

7/14    Any ideas on why Mozilla/Firefox/etc is so slow on OSX? Even Camino,
        "designed from the ground up for OSX," is really bad.
        \_ Slow? FF seems as fast as Safari to me. Load time is slower than
           Safari, but once it is loaded I can't really tell any difference.
           \_ Did you try resizing the browser window?  That was where I
              noticed the big difference.  I'm on a recent G4 Powerbook

8/11    Mac OS X users:  is there such thing as an "emulation mode" in OS X?
        90% of the apps I use have Mac OS X versions.  But what's keeping me
        from pulling the trigger and buying an PowerBook is that 10%.  I have
        some legacy windows app that doesn't have OS X version.  I'm wondering
        if there is emulation software and how reliable is it?  Thanks.
        \_ are you talking MS Windows or os9?  There are both.  The

3/18    I am going to buy some RAM (for a powerbook G4 12).  Havn't shopped
        for RAM for a while, I looked around on websites and noticed some
        module manufacturers such as Kingston offer "ValueRAM" (order by spec)
        and system specific ones.  There is a large price difference between
        the two, but try as I do, I cannot think of a reason a config.
        specific module is better than a "Value RAM" rated for the same spec,

3/21    Suppose your parents move all of their asset to the child, can they
        qualify for SSI (additional income)? Will the transfer of asset
        trigger some sort of audit, questioning, and such? Has anyone
        done this?

1/10    Yet another campus shooting incident:
        Thank you NRA.
           \_ I would thank them; it's a tough spot to be in: defending civil
        liberties in the wake of an event that has all the sheeple begging
        the government to take them away. (Not to mention the large number of
        morons vilifying you and those others who dissent).

        \_ Yay! I look forward to 4 more years of doing absolutely nothing.
           It's a much better outcome than the alternative, which is 4 years
           of regress.

           to end the $5bn in fossil fuel tax subsidies the US has in place.
           And that's merely a third of what we as a nation spend to
           subsidize fossil fuels.
