Thank you for your suggestion, but I'm not all that keen about buying more hardware just to create a place to park my C CC or Super-Duper clone. I'm even less enthused about parking backup on my own...

Is all this legal?

My roommate uses AT&T DSL (windows) to get online. In addition, he's also plugged into WiFi. When I purchased a used Apple laptop for practically free, he suggested, I also buy a small $29 device...

Putting Mail back on track

The Apple iBook G3 Laptop is good enough, but Mail has been for the birds from the outset. I rely on Gmail to do the heavy lifting, but I like to read my mail on my native application. While I have...

Thank you for your input. You've confirmed what I was beginning to be aware of, namely, more and more of what I was looking at required 10.4 or above.

Yes or No install 10.4

Is there a good reason to upgrade to Mac OS X 10.4 from 10.3.9? If so, how would I go about it? Will I need disks specifically for my white double USB G3 iBook? Would it be okay to purchase used...

Lost in the underworld clutches of Terminal, the wicked beast

I'm a nice guy, I don't step on ants, and I obey the law. I'm still using my white 2001 G3 iBook, running OS 10.3.9, and mostly surf the Internet. I do nothing fancy, and it's not likely I'll ever...

How new does my laptop need to be?
