  • 1. Upgrading an older computer - advice please?
    Ok, I decided to update some parts on my Mac. Here is what I have now- Power Mac G4 desktop Mac OS X version 10.3.9 CPU- type Power PC G4 CPU-speed 1.25 ghz Memory 1.25GB (four slots- 500, 500, 250, 0. ) I have ordered - ~ Memory 2x 500MB from crucial ( I'll replace the 250MB stick ) ~ Verbatim 250GB Smartdisc firewire hard drive (#96528) ~ Mac OS X Leopard V10.5 ~ Apple iWork '08 Now I have two questions - 1. I'm ok installing memory, done that before. And I will do that FIRST. But any thing I should do BEFORE I install Leopard? Guess I'm a bit wary that Leopard might mess with some of my current files/settings. 2. After I am done installing this stuff is there anything else I might do to help my system? Is it possible, or even advisable to replace/update such things as the processor or video card? I'm just trying to get some more time of of this machine and improve the performance in a cost effective manner. Thanks for any advice! BTW, I was shocked at how much the cost of memory has dropped in the past few years. I'm getting twice what I bought last time for LESS that HALF the original cost. AMAZING!
  • 2. what is this 'cloud'
    Hi, I keep coming across references like this: "MobileMe is advertised as push messaging service, so some users were disappointed to find that some desktop updates may take as long as fifteen minutes to find their way up to the cloud." I've read a bit about mobileme and some of the other services claiming to use the cloud, but all I can see is servers and clients using the same protocols as before. So what is is this cloud the marketing minions keep mumbling about? Is it real or is it just another one of those mantras they come up with from time to time to keep people ignorant, swimming round in circles like goldfish and saying 'this is new' from time to time and not understanding how the internet actually works? Or is it something else entirely? Andy

    Long time! How's it going? Why are you hanging on COLA? You know there are more than enough freaks on CSMA to go around. And there's always CSMS to fall back on..

First off for today is a show down between several actors with
enormous egos vying for the lead as Bond.

George Clooney and Brad Pitt are the main contenders for the part.
Both have the eye candy appeal to the female viewers and are looked up
to by young men hoping to be in their position in a few years time.

Both actors are itching to be first with the big impressions so along
they come with their drivers, Jeff Gordon and Lewis Hamilton. Both
drivers are fans of luxury watch manufacturers and are always on time.

1.Word 2008: Printing of a document with several sections/chapters leads to page number confusion

Hi Maccle,

I'm using 2004, but I assume it will work the same for v2008.

It sounds like you probably have numerous section breaks in your document and, if so, you can not use absolute page numbers.

When you print, there is an area in the dialog box for "Print Range" and that's where you'll need to specify what you want printed. If you have multiple sections, then you specify the ranges as follows:
p#s#-p#s# (p=page, s=section, #=number)
s#-s# if you want to print entire sections
s# to print one entire section

The way that I determine the correct page and section numbers is to go to Print Preview and see what it say in the lower left of the status area (at the bottom of the document window). When you look there, you should see Page # Sec #.

As I said, this is based on Word 2004, so hopefully it's very similar for Word 2008. I just downloaded the trial version of 2008 today (about time they had one available!) so I will be able to compare soon enough.

Hope this helps!

3.Drop down menu that sets up of several lines of standard text

I would like to set up a purchase order template. As I can purchase
only from 13 companies, I would like to set up drop down menu with the
company name, but then as soon as i choose it I would like to get also
the name of contact person, address, fax and telephone number and so
Is there a way to do this as it appears to me that the drop down menu
allows me to enter only one line and not multiple lines.
Anybody got an idea? Thanks

4.I am thankful today...

Wishing all a Happy Thanksgiving!

I am thankful that I use a Mac and don't have to suffer through the 
abomination that is Windows and the cheap crap known as PCs.

I am thankful that I am more affluent than the low-rent Windows trolls 
that slither around in this newsgroup, and can appreciate the finer 
things in life like Macs and BMWs, while they can only afford cheap, 
Best Buy, substandard Dells and Asus that have to be replaced every year 
because they break down.

I am thankful that I can be proud of the technology I own and not always 
apologizing for the cheap stuff others are forced to buy because they 
have minimum wage jobs, like Zara and Tommy Troll.

I am thankful to be a member of the higher educated, more affluent, 
discerning class that can actually afford quality rather than having to 
constantly  explain why quality and design aren't really important.

I am thankful I can walk into a Starbucks and order whatever I want 
while the pathetic trolls here are limited to ordering knock-off latte's 
from McDonalds and then convince themselves it's the same thing only 

I am thankful that I have excellent health care insurance while the 
trolls here are forced to use the emergency room as their clinic of last 
resort, or the charity of others.

I am thankful relaxing on my yaht  and wondering what the poor people 
are doing for entertainment while Zara, Tommy, the Mayor, et al, toil 
away stocking the shelves at Walmart and going to the neighborhood 
tavern to drown their depression in cheap beer.

Life is good if you're not a CSMA Wintroll.

5.I am a windows guy and I just ordered my first Intel Imac

So I just ordered an Intel Mac. Should be here tomorrow (did it via for sat delivery)... 2 gigs of ram, and got the wireless 
package. We will see how it is.

You know what sold me to try it (and  have a 4400+ AMD machine)? I got a USB 
Maxtor drive, and it explained how to restore the entire mac. Like a 4 step 
process. I love that!  For windows it was 14 step... I am curious about this
