    Dell Vostro 1500 Mega Thread

    I'm sorry to say, but you're going to have a lot of reading to do. I got mine to work pretty darn good, and used it as my main machine, but that was like 2 or 3 years ago. As you can see, this isn't that lively of a thread anymore, and I think a lot of people have moved on. But everything you need is in here, somewhere. There is no one single post that tells everything, but if you start from Hexadecimal's first post and just do that, you should be able to be developing without too much trouble. One thing: If you have the NVidia card, it seems lots easier. If you have Intel graphics, it's going to be more difficult.

    It should work without the grey wire. Try it, though, and let us know what happens!

    Family issue...

    Well, mankind has shown itself capable of attaining life-long relationships for thousands of years. Divorce isn't something that just happens. You let it happen. Adults don't get divorced. Children do.

    The first Mac you ever used.

    My cousins had one of the old originals. I just looked it up and I think it was a 128k. I don't know for sure, but I know it was before 1986 so I guess it must have been a 128k or a 512k. I used lots of Apple ][s and stuff, and the teacher down the hall still uses 2 of those ][e computers. But the ][e isn't a Mac.
  5. Amen, brothers. First Amendment, Shmirst Amenment!
  6. The Global Warming scare has nothing to do with climate change. It has to do with political power.
  7. "Oil is not a fossil fuel" I'm a global warming skeptic. But come on! Even though there are some serious scientists who have evidence that suggests that it might not be a true fossil fuel (look it up!), it's pretty much a settled deal. Let's even suppose for the sake of argument that it is, whether or not it's a fossil fuel is irrelevant. And Al Gore doesn't really think he invented the Internet. Look it up. Your posts are full of red herrings, BB555. Calm down and present relevant facts and you'll find some people ready to discuss it with you rationally. P.S.: Really, there is something to the whole idea that oil might have been formed through abiogenic processes. Look it up! It's interesting science.
  8. Check this out: http://lowendmac.com/pb2/powerbook-g4-667-800-dvi.html That might have some answers. As for installing Leopard, I know it can be installed, but the installer won't like it. I read somewhere that Leopard won't install on a sub-1Ghz machine, which yours probably is. But there's a way around it: you use a newer Mac and boot your TiBook to Target Disk Mode and install through the other computer. I'm assured it will work (I haven't tried it because I don't need it on my TiBooks and I don't have enough licenses anyway). But honestly I don't see why you'd need Leopard. I am using Tiger on mine, and it works just fine. As for your wireless, I had the same problem. What I had to do was go in and fiddle with my router's wireless settings. I think it didn't work on PSK, and I had to change it to TKIP or something like that. If you need more details I can check again for you.

    Dell Vostro 1500 Mega Thread

    Can someone post a great how-to on Boot-132 with the Vostro? I've looked into it and it's confusing. And now that my Vostro is my main work computer (RIP MBP) I am most hesitant to start screwing stuff up just to experiment. But I dream of having a Mac as my main work computer again, so I'm about ready to try it again. I actually have an external HD to test it all on. Maybe I'll give it a shot.

    That's what I'm telling you. I'm sorry. And I guess I don't get it. The Dell Mini 9 and 10v get to sleep. And the Vostro 1500 has the same NVidia as the MBP. Oh well. I just know it's over my head.

    That problem is because of your video drivers. It's the holy grail of Dell laptops.

    Look on page 4. There's a line you have to add to one of your plists.
  13. I can hardly turn the TV on without being told how bad it's declining at the moment and we need to pass another stimulus RIGHT NOW! Gravity makes it possible for buildings to fall. Gravity, dude! Where were you in high school? See? Even you admit it was a coincidence! Except that it's not true as well. Coincidence? First of all, which particular advanced technology is supposed to find him? Second of all, there are political reasons to stop mentioning him (i.e.: they screwed up and are sweeping it under the rug). Third of all, never mind. Smart people, on the other hand, do more than merely understand these simple facts. We are skeptical of them as well. Non sequitur freemason sentence notwithstanding, God has given us a brain to think. We really should look at the facts and draw our own conclusions. It will be a long time indeed. Sorry for the snarky tone to most of this post. I'm just kinda sick of the instant jump from "I have unanswered questions about 9/11" to "Oh my goodness, the worst fears of ALL the conspiracy nuts are ALL true! SIMULTANEOUSLY!" FWIW, I'm pretty sure we haven't been told the truth by our government.
  14. I've used Migration Assistant, and it works. I did it without firewire, but I used an external HD instead.
