Hello,
My name user name pantheman and I live in the rainy Pacific Northwest. Although I started out using the original Mac plus,( yes way back to the 80's) but switched to windows when Steve Jobs got pushed out of Apple. So I'm trying to get back up to speed in the mac world. So with the help of this communty I was able to build a Snow leopard 10.6.8 and a lion 10.7.3. Looking forward to figuring out how to upgrade to Mountain lion.

Greetings from the High Plains of South Dakota. I am a disabled police officer/Vietnam Vet, and have been playing with computer since the old 386SX was king.

I have owned over a dozen mac's and once had quite a collection, however I am down to one laptop and one duel processor G4.

I have installed OS X on my laptop as well as an old PC that I built from the ground up.

I have a degree as a paralegal, and while in college back in the early 90's I took every computer course I could including Unix and basic, as well as the office courses and so forth.

I have been building PC's and repairing both desktops and laptops. I have changed processor's on laptops, and completely rebuilt many desktops, including new video cards, audio card upgrades, processor upgrades and of course RAM upgrades.

Because of an accident that put me on the disabled list, and having been on high dose narcotics for the past nearly 20 years,my brain is a bit slower then it was when I graduated with a 4.0 GPA back in 95.

I say all this, not only as an introduction but a comment on the quiz part 2 which it seems I have FAILED twice in a row?????

Don't get me wrong, I could have perhaps forgotten some of what I learned about basic computer function, and as I say the narcotics do dampen the old gray matter, and the fact that I am a bit over 60 may be part of it but I came here for HELP!

Having to pass a stupid quiz to be able to ask for this help seems both a waste of my time and energy, and defeats the purpose of this forum that should be here to help folks get their osx working on their computers!

I am trying to get this machine working so I can take it along with me while I will be an inpatient at the VA center being treated for PTSD, the result of the hell I had to put up with while serving this nation in Vietnam back in 70/71 but I guess instead of keeping the N speed network card that I installed in my duel boot vista/OSX machine I will simply have to go back to the G speed and loose the greatly improved network speed that I have in Vista so my OSX can again work on my inspiron 6400.

The quiz serves a few purposes, one of which is to keep the forum from getting spammed by bots, and the site is a community, not a help desk. That said, what is the vendor ID and device ID for the wifi card your having trouble with?

Hey, I came here after doing some more research on my upcoming "Mattintosh". (Can I post a link to my personal website? I read the rules and it looks like I'm in the clear. The moderator(s) over at TonyMac wouldn't let me because they considered it "trolling"…)

Anyway, I'm researching alternatives to the TonyMac method and this site looks like a good place for it. I got 12 / 13 on Quiz Part 1. Haven't tried Quiz Part 2 but I'm sure I'd fail it right now.

Sure, I don't see anything wrong with linking your "Mattintosh" site in your signature.
If you passed Quiz Part 1 with 12 /13 you should also pass Quiz Part 2 rather easily.

Hi everyone, I go to college in Oregon for compsci and I've been a longtime lurker here since the early days. Might as well start posting.

I took both of the quizzes and passed, but didn't get everything right. I think I missed the floppy disk questions; I've never personally seen a floppy disk :worried_anim:

Actually the floppy disk question is a bit tricky even for those who have seen one :)
