  1. Goodbye.

    Unfortunately, I am not in a position that I feel comfortable in posting any more details. I would imagine that Swad will post details he feels are important at an appropriate time.
  2. Goodbye.

    Yes this is an unfortunate situation we are in, but I think it is important for everyone to realize that little, if anything, is going to change around here. There are some new things being planned for the site, but nothing that would adversely affect the site is foreseen from these events or is planned. Other was an extremely valuable member of this community and it is sad to see him go, however everyone must realize that things happen and move on. I would encourage everyone to not speculate on this matter as only more damage can come as a part of this. Thank you.
  3. Who is Mash?

    Well since Mash and I have been facebook friends for a little over a year now, I think I know who he is...
  4. I'm Facebook friends with Mash, which is pretty much like knowing each other, so I'll vouch for him as well! Don't bother asking for names/schools for either of us, we won't give 'em out.
  5. The Official WWDC Live News Thread

    This is just a quick clarification... hop on irc.macspeak.net and connect to #WWDC for some collective "live" coverage. We will be pulling from multiple sources and posting as fast as we can. If you are having difficulty connecting, try connecting to one of these specific servers: comrade.macspeak.net irc.fr.macspeak.net irc.de.macspeak.net
  6. Maxxuss, back?

    How long can it take to redo the blur? lol...
  7. Maxxuss, back?

    These are channel modes: (circled in red)
  8. Maxxuss, back?

    The google ads are not our only motivation for believing this is a hoax. If you want to instill a bit more belief from me, repost your irc screenshot with everything blurred out the same except the channel modes. Still would take more than that to make me believe anything is true about maxxuss being back.
  9. Maxxuss, back?

    Its not the fact that the page has google ads, its the fact that to get google ads you have to give personal information that could be traced back to you. No one in their right mind would do that if they were in Maxxuss's situation.
  10. We're #3!

    All requests sent over HTTP include a 'User Agent' section that contains information on what browser is being used. I'm not sure of specifics as to how the companies that release these studies gather their information since their websites would not really be indicative of general web traffic. A few possibilities include monitoring remote ad requests, code that site owners put in their own site to send this information to the statistics company, and also the statistics company buying/asking for these statistics from various major websites. Personally I would like to see Google release their statistics on browser usage. The traffic they get is from the widest demographics and I think it would be extremely accurate on browser usage. I mean, come on, 'google' is now a verb! The chances of Google releasing this information are slim to none considering their policy on releasing data they've collected. "It could give our competitors an advantage!"
  11. I've always been a hardline PHP guy myself, but I'm curious to see what everyone else here uses to code the "workhorse" of their web stuff. I know Ruby on Rails has become quite popular recently, but I just haven't been able to convince myself to try it out. Also, what frameworks do you use as a base for your websites? Personally I use: PHP 5 (usually with MySQL 5 as the database) CakePHP (www.cakephp.org) as a framework.
  12. Webdesigners

    The only way to do things correctly is to do all the coding by hand, which is what I do. TextMate is what I use as an editor on OS X, I highly recommend it for anyone serious about webdesign.

    Did a little investigation here with the help of DaxTsurugi and his MacBook Pro. Comparing the kextstat on both machines I found that the same kexts are loaded related to ATINDRV.kext and ATIRadeonX1000.kext. (IONDRVSupport, IOGraphicsFamily, and IOPCIFamily). The one difference is that on my machine (hackintosh per se), ATINDRV.kext loads before ATIRadeonX1000.kext where as on his machine it is the other way around. Not really sure if that matters..... Anyways, the differences and why this method doesn't provide full support is quite apparent in comparing the output from ioreg.

    I'm going to go out on a limb here and I have no evidence to back it up, but I believe that the card is still not FULLY supported. It is damn close to being fully supported, but the lack of DVI output along with proper card not showing up in System Profiler, along with a few other things lead me to believe this. With some investigation, I think we can get this as close to how the cards on real Macs work as possible, especially the PCIe users. EDIT: More evidence to indicate not truly full support. In iTunes using visualization, any 2D effect unfocusing from the window such as a preferences window or finder causes an extreme drop in framerate along with the Apple/Song Info fade out effect used.
