    Wireless PCMCIA cards for Mac

    I know of no other cards that work with powerbooks, but I was looking for a similar USB solution for my Mac Mini and came up with using a wireless bridge. It's basically a little wireless reciever that passes the network to an ethernet cable attached like normal to your computer. I got a...

    Help me find a solution

    AFAIK it's doing ok. 350w Antec PSU, about 3 or 4 years old. Like I said though I can play for hours and hours on fallout or civ 3 or just let the computer run. It's only when I play these newer games that I get a crash.

    I have one of those uber-popular Antec cases. I have two 80mm blowing in from the front, two in the back as exhaust. I have an Alpha heatsink with an 80mm fan too. Personally I don't think cooling is a problem. I'm just about to run memtest86 right now, I'll be back and post the results...

    Gamer's KVM?

    I've got a Belkin 2-port between my Mac and my PC and it's working pretty well for me. It gets a little confused sometimes if something crashes and it looses the signal but if you switch it and wait on the other channel until the other device is up it's usually ok. Not very expensive either...

    Help me find a solution

    Admitedly, I have an old computer, but I don't think the specs are THAT bad. But the problems I've been having recently only seem to apply to newer games. More specifically, when I play either BF2 or Civ 4 I will get random lock up where the last maybe half second of sound goes on infinite loop...

    Tech help for BF2?

    So here's my problem: Randomly BF2 will freeze on me and either the whole system will go or I'll get an error window that says somethign along the lines of "memory value does not seem sane" and show a block of memory that they say have 0 mb in it. I've got all the latest drivers and patches...

    User installation RAM iMac Mini

    yeah but look at the snap hooks on that chassis, it may be that once the thing is together, it's designed to STAY together. They may be so cheap to make that any hardware failure is solved by just cloning your drive and getting an completly new one.

    Movies in iTunes --> Sync to iPod !! Interesting Error Message !!

    I hate to break it to you, but it's not a customized error message. You get one exactly like that if you try and copy a WMA file onto an iPod. iTunes recoginizes the file as something the iPod can't play and hits you with that error. It's not a hint at apple thinking of making a video iPod...

    KOTOR 2... Anyone get it yet?

    Want an iBook, but will it work for me?

    you'll be much happier with a PowerBook instead. They have faster memory and processors. Hard disks use ATA/100 too. I work with macs and while the iBooks are nice, we generally only order those for the "less demanding" users. Everyone in my department (IT) has either a PowerBook or a G5...

    System Shock 3? Maybe?

    I'm disapointed with BioShock. I was hoping for a sequel to System Shock, not a "spiritual successor." I don't want to run around an old WW2 base like they say. I want to run around a space installation trying to survive a psycopathic AI. This game has nothing in common with System...

    How to make an invisible folder in Panther visible?

    so I copied my songs over from my iPod to a mac at work but iTunes can't see the folder because it's still invisible (I used cocktail so that I could see them, but I guess iTunes can't) so I need to make the folder visible. How do I do that? Can I do that?

    Unlocking an Athlon XP 1800+ (old I know :( )

    well it's my only box, I just dont' have the money to get a new proc. I barely had the money for the motherboard and that was only $60. Overclocking this one, though it runs fine, is basically the only way I can afford a faster processor.

    I had a similar problem with my 3G iPod. Try downloading the latest iPod software update from Apple, and the latest version of iTunes. Update the iPod with the new software first, then try and connect to iTunes. That's what worked for me, mabye it'll work for you too

    I never liked counter-strike. But Half-Life was the greatest single player experience I had ever had at that point.
