lol,, kid get over it. If there is a good product that is worth buying ill go for it. Is microsoft a bad company? yes, maybe, and of course, however Windows is *Not* a bad OS, its just OSX is that much better. You pick, the mouse apple supplied you with, the same one i have, or this trackball explorer, best mouse ive ever owned. Stop being so neophobic and grow up ; )

If the poster above means the picture from out your window then I'd like to second that - it would make a lovely backdrop (particularly for those of us with views over the next few houses and not much more - think I'm getting horizon starvation again...)

aribus, all2ofme - no problem whatsoever.

I love those hills You should check out the quality of the image first, though - it's not that great since it was one of those "Honey, look at that sky! Quick - get the camera!" kind of shots. If you're picky (like me) you'll want to do some Photoshop'ing on it. Here we go:

- The first one, for those who don't feel like fixing & chopping, is all ready to go @ 1280 x 1024 (590 KB)
- The second one, for those who like to do their own chopping, the raw jpg as it came out of the camera (1.3 MB)

Have fun + cheers,

eff

(edit: fixed link to raw jpg file)

Where are you located? I've not seen such a nice view in the U.S, since we tear all the trees down and make carparks.

He, he - thanks for the compliment. I live in Germany, south of Frankfurt (and no, I'm not a "Frankfurter" *grin*.)

No need to be modest, though. I lived in the US for a couple of years - and did see quite a few really nice areas - there were even a couple of trees here and there. Mostly regarded as a nuisance while trying to get from mall A to mall B

It's kind of hard to tell if it would fit or not, but that would be my optimal setup. Powerbook sitting in the same place, PC monitor on the glass to the left. PC stashed someplace underneath where I can still see it. Time to make me a trip to Staples. woot.

Mainframe_modul,

sorry to butt in, but ....

they're called Boblbee Hard Shell Backpacks. They are available in Australia.

I found mine at one of the more upmarket men's wear stores in Canberra. Of course, once I got one I started noticing them everywhere. I've tended to see them at computing/gadget/urban wear stores rather than sports or luggage stores.

From memory, the website (www.boblbee.com) lists Australian distributors. (The site is down at the moment so I can't check). They also come up on ebay occasionally. A google search may help with online sales

good luck

Nice setup there
I'm thinking of getting an Apple BT mouse for my Pbook too. My current BT microsoft mouse is ok but i'm not so happy about its responsiveness.
It just doesn't feel as snappy as the mouse on my PC. Is it the mouse or is it just how the mouse feels in OSX?

EDIT: i just stole my little sisters Logitech optical USB mouse and it is way better than my BT microsoft mouse.
So i need a driver for it but i can't seem to find one for it

Just wondering why do people use external mouse and keyboards with their PowerBooks?

I could understand the two button mouse thing (which I use, the BT one), but I don't understand why people don't use the keyboard. It is full size and all you know.

Nice collection of PowerMacs by the way .

For me there are two reasons:

1. For desk use, I prefer that the PowerBook sit in the middle of the desk, and after reaching halfway across the desk to type for a while, I started to get some weird pain in my back. Using an external keyboard closer to me on the desk allows me to keep the viewing distance I like and a comfortable typing position.

2. The number pad is just so much easier to get to on the Pro Keyboard. I use it a lot, so it's nice to have it there.

That's it. Believe me, my PB sees plenty of lap use and both the trackpad and keyboard see lots of use.
