    Beach Ball on the G5?
    Just wondering, but do any of the G5 users here experience the Spinning Beach Ball ever? And do you guys ever experience the Spinning Beach Ball of Death (That is, when the ball doesn't go away no matter how long you wait, and you have no option but to force quit the program)?

    It does happen, rarely though. Just make sure you set the processor performance to "highest" in the energy saver option in system preferences.

    As for the S.B.B.O.D., never happened to my G5 yet (and I've had it for a year), but it happens now and then on my 1.5Ghz 17" G4.

    1) You don't own a G5 so how would you know? It does happen.

    2) Your spelling indicates that I am not the "stoopid" one, but you.

    3) You don't own a G5 so how would you know?

    Relax, Nicholas, he's just being sarcastic. He's just mocking the incredibly extreme Mac fanboys who actually deserved to be mocked. However, those kinds of people actually don't exist on this forum (or at least aren't current active posters)!

    Ahhhh, my bad. Got a little carried away there. Happens sometimes when I'm posting at night, and I'm having a drink haha. Sorry Absolut, no harm done?
