Lightbulb Strange lockups on 10.5 iMac

I'm not sure if this is a hardware, software or driver problem, so sorry if it's in the wrong place.

I have a 3.06GHz 24" iMac, running 10.5.3. When I set it up, I used Migration Assistant to...

What's iPhoto like these days?

I have 20,000+ photos on my Mac. When I first got it I dabbled with iPhoto 4, but it was painfully slow with this number of images, and I found it didn't really cater for easy image management -...

I'm in the same boat. I have around 10,000 photos and I want a way to organise them easily. I've not used iPhoto for years as it just ground to a halt with the volume of photos, although they may...

Why not just go generic? If it's faulty, you send it back. If it's not, then you save a lot of money. I've been using generic memory for years and have never had any problems.

Go to an outdoor shop and you'll have more choice than you can shake a stick at. You'll pay a lot for proper climbing rope as it's performance-critical.

When he turns the machine on it will walk him through the initial setup steps. Apart from that, I'd leave him to it. You don't have to worry, this isn't a PC we're talking about!

Are you asking how to use chmod? I find this quite surprising... if you know enough to think you need to use chmod, I'd have thought you'd have known how to use it!

Try "man chmod".

Good luck...
