Thread: I just got one!!!
04-28-2004, 11:36 AM #1psychotoeGuestI just got one!!!
Hello all, I would just like to say I just got my first Mac, I have done the switch from PC to Mac and I got the 1.25Ghz eMac with 256 DDR Ram Expandable to 1gig 80gig HD at 7200rpm and a super drive in it! I have not recived it yet cause it's going to take a week for them to order, but I can't wait to get it. 17" flat CRT. Working on my music, Pics, Creating dvds and editing photos will be amazing. I pretty much can use the sofware it comes with but my question is this:
I know that the new OS is Unix based, or all the Mac OS's are unix based (I think anyway) Now I hope that this does not seem like a dumb question but Linux is also Unix based, is coding similer on the Mac as it would be in Linux?
Are there any books you recomend to learn the new os inside and out?
And why the hell is the stand for the e-Mac $95.00 Canadian? I find it expensive for a stand!
But anyway, I'm real happy to switch over I had enough of Windows!!

I agree that the base is overpriced. In fact I skipped it and bought a TV pivot plate at Ikea. It doesn't adjust for tilt angle but it only cost $20.

cron tasks Finder, Applications. Utilities Terminal type (switching to root - superuser) sudo sh /etc/daily > this needs to be done /weekly (instead of daily) and monthly. again with all apps closed

If you want a GUI for what whiteshark is talking about, check out macjanitor:
Also, if want a GUI for cron, check out cronnix:

I'm can handle some CLI (but not cron), but I thought it would helpful for the other guys.

Yeah! The CLI is such a powerful tool! I made my terminal green on black backround -- sweet!
