  2. About to make the switch!

    I am about to make a switch from Windows to OSX Leopard as my primary OS. I am currently dual booting and becoming tired and fed up of Windows as i find it always crashes and has other problems, so i've decided to make a switch to OSX. My main problem is I will miss some of my Windows programs and the Windows way of doing things. Any tips for an easier switchover and any Mac alternatives for common Windows software would be appreciated. Hypnoticcow
  3. Few Bits and Bobs

    Hi you could try iUSBCam (Attached in post) this lets you use usb webcams in ichat photobooth ect. It may work with the internal webcam too its worth a try. Out of interest what Wifi/Ethernet card does the laptop use windows or linux should tell you this. And i also have a card reader on my laptop and have found nothing anywhere about how to make it work so if you find a solution please message me i would be delighted to find one.

  5. Very big problem after Apple Update 10.5.4

    I updated a few times similar to this and got the same problem. This is how i fixed it. 1. Use Acronis Disk Director or Gparted (freeware) to copy your Mac partition to an external hard drive. 2. Reinstall Mac Leopard 3. When prompted you should transfer information from another Mac 4. Select transfer from another disk and select your external drive 5. Go get a cup of tea while the installer then copies all your settings, user files and even apps! 6. Rejoice as you can now use your system where you left off. Note: Apart from updates + modifications like sound drivers or power management hacks you system will be just as you left it just reinstall these and all should be the same This for me is the far easiest way to recover from such an incident and trust me iv used this a lot.
  6. Here is my logo i have made. The file i have uploaded is a compressed jpg at 5100 x 3000 but I also have an uncompressed .pspimage version of it and can provide various other compressed and uncompressed formats e.g .eps, .psd, .tiff, .raw, .bmp, .gif ect. Hope you like it if anyone had improvements please can you give me a message or reply and il try to put them in.
