Heh... I personally like Macs, but I can still sort of empathise with the video.
Thanks, Fleeb! Very amusing! :-)
Makes me really look forward to my next Mac experience. ;-)
Animal was kind enough to send me the Toast files that Susan will need to backup her Mac which is running OS 9.2.2 (IIRC).
Thanks again, Animal !! :-)
What about a CD or DVD burner for a Mac ? Any idea where I might find one of those ? I am guessing that Internal will be less expensive and she does have one 5.25 Inch bay available inside the case.
Any suggestions will be GREATLY appreciated.
Nasty posts, like those from Grey Elf, will be ignored.
they called and told me the enclosure/trackpad had come in. I called today and
found out they're the wrong kind.
They offered me a free Macbook for the headaches. Since I'm leaving friday
morning, I decided to have them put my iBook back together with the old parts
and come back at a later date to pick up my new Macbook. They're giving me a
lower-end one, but if I wanted an upgrade I'd just pay the difference. I may go
with a black macbook, which would set me back about $100.
Did I mention I love apple?
Don't take it so hard. The remarkable thing about Grelf is that he's an
equal opportunity abuser. He leaves out No One!
In fact, there are many of us here glad to have him back.
Consider yourself recognized, and visit the cafe. Let's see what you got.
(I aint got much)
Shaddup 2Dog. :>
2Dog - Thanks. I am just not accustomed to being abused "in the real world" as I simply choose to not associate with anyone who is abusive to me.
Kinda like "Hurt me once and it's your fault. Hurt me twice and it's my fault for sticking around you." - That kinda thing.
In the case of a BBS that does not censure abusive users, I guess that I just will have to enjoy the good people and learn to ignore the abusive ones, such as Grey Elf.
Anyone know if He/She is that much of an asshole in "real life" ??
And can I use just any ATA-100 Internal IDE DVD burner with the Mac in question ?? Again it is a grey and white mini-tower case G4 Mac.
And yes harry, I'm even more of an asshole in real life. I've got a phd in assholery, and a masters in kicking yer ass. *snicker* Fucking gimp.
Yeah harry is doing SUCH a good job of ignoring grelf. I mean it's not like the words "Grey Elf" appear in every single harry post.
Oh wait a minute...
Yes, but where can we get rubber pants at this time of night?
thoguh the specs on what they're giving me is the base model. Waiting anohter
day or two for my Macbook.
Ended up ordering the black one. Paid the difference from the $1100 one they
gave me vs. the $1500 for the black MB, but thanks to student discounts, that
took off $100 from the difference. When I get the new one, I'm cancelling
Applecare on my iBook, prorated difference from what I didn't use (about 4
months, so i'm nt expecting a whole lot) and purchasing Applecare for the MB.
So now i'm on a clean install of MacOS X on my iBook since I wiped the disk, and
for whatever reason Restore won't finish copying from the disk image. Data's
still there, but it won't restore all the way.
Also found out that I can apple-click URLs in Terminal and they'll launch in the
browser. Dunno why my old setup wouldn't do that, but it's damn nice.
