  1. Boot Camp is not an emulator. It's a program to help you set up a dual-boot system with Windows XP on the Intel Macs. It also includes the necessary drivers for Win XP. Once installed, Win XP runs directly on the hardware without OS X.
  2. The pessismist in me just realized that the partition table should be accessible from the disk manager in Windows. You can't access data on the HFS+ partition, but you can screw up all partitions on the disk A possible solution to data transfer problesm could maybe be to have a third partition formatted in FAT32, which is writable from both Windows and OS X.
  3. G4 will probably be the first processors to be replaced starting next summer, some 6 months after CMx2 release. But there will still be a lot of G4's around for quite some time. All iBooks, Powerbooks and Mac minis. Not to mention a lot of Powermacs. The complete change to Intel will take another year. So there will probably not be any G5 replacement until some 12-18 months after CMx2 release, and those G5's will probably still be running fine by then. Making G4/G5 versions makes lots of sense. The life expectancy of a computer in CM context is more like 3-5 years, if we look at the system

  5. Unfortunately, Rosetta will most likely be too slow. From the Apple document "Universal Binary Programming Guidelines": I was planning on switching completely to Mac when Cmx2 is released, I guess I'll justhave to wait and see what happens.
  6. I made a workaround: I made an extension cable and connected the graphics card fan to one of the fan headers on the motherboard. I have no RPM feedback, but I can control the fan speed with SpeedFan . I also underclocked the card slightly. (With Nvidia Coolbits registry entry)
  7. I found the cd that came with the card. There is a overclock utility, but maybe I'll underclock it and put on a heatsink. Or try to lower the fan speed. You're probably right, it will most likely hang/corrupt the graphics before it dies permanently. Hmm...worth a try. Airflow is pretty good, cpu is 40 degrees C with cpu/case fan (integrated in a heat pipe cooling apparatus) on lowest speed. Inner temps (hd, power, case) are slightly below that.
  8. I'm considering replacing my current graphics card with a passively cooled one - no fans. I have looked at the GeForce FX5200, the GF4 MX440 is also fan-less but feels a bit old. I haven't looked at ATI cards because of the fog issue in CM. But if anyone has any recommendations I'll consider ATI. CM is the only game I play, I'll also use the computer to play DVDs. (How much is the graphics card used when showing movies?) The computer I have is a Shuttle SN45G2V, and there is no room for add-on coolers. The video card is next to the case. Any suggestions are welcome. I am fully
  9. Finns? Estonians? Since these provinces historically always have been a part of Greater Sweden I don't see why they should be registered separately on a ladder.
  10. <BLOCKQUOTE>quote:</font><HR>Originally posted by Olle Petersson: The H&K G3 is pretty much a straight down modernised version of the MP44. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE> Isn't the G3 a descendant of the planned MP45 (?) with rollers to lock the bolt. Anyway, the design of the mechanism in the MP44 and the G3 is completely different from each other. ------------------ Spending extravagant amounts of money for marginal improvements is only acceptable in the fields of racehorses and fancy women. -Lord Kelvin
  11. try Shift-S (I think...) or whatever the command is on a Mac.
  12. I even got the planes to fly at night in thick fog!!! And they actually managed to spot and hit things on the ground!!!! ------------------ Spending extravagant amounts of money for marginal improvements is only acceptable in the fields of racehorses and fancy women. -Lord Kelvin
  13. Thanks, Al! Good thing you found the fog settings at last. ------------------ Spending extravagant amounts of money for marginal improvements is only acceptable in the fields of racehorses and fancy women. -Lord Kelvin
  14. Anyone who has tried this card with CM? I was thinking of buying one (to replace my Voodoo 1!) My computer doesn't have an AGP slot so the choices are somewhat limited. Does it support fog? Transparent smoke? ------------------ Spending extravagant amounts of money for marginal improvements is only acceptable in the fields of racehorses and fancy women. -Lord Kelvin
