DTS post 10.3.8 syndrome

Tuesday, February 15th, 2005

I guess you could file this one under, ‘plea for help’ or ‘has anyone else experienced this’. Alright here’s a quick rundown of where I was before patching to 10.3.8. I had iTunes, Dolby Digital and DTS all playing through the digital out of my M-Audio Sonica Theater. Enter 10.3.8 and I lose DTS, I […]

ATI remote wonder with the Mac Mini

Saturday, February 5th, 2005

This originally started out as a Remote Wonder, is that my version the ‘Remote Wonder’ only reports back to the software for command transfers, but the

Day two with the mini

Saturday, February 5th, 2005

Ok, things are settling down a bit, and I’m getting more comfortable with OSX and Mac in general (thanks to all for the remote drives in startup tips). We’ve watched two movies on the Mac mini since it arrived, pretty much without a hitch. I say pretty much because the M-Audio Sonica theater has to go, […]

My Mac mini, first impressions

Friday, February 4th, 2005

I want to preface this review by saying I’m a windows user, have been since 93 or 94 when I bought a 75ish MHz Intel chip (my memories foggy), a barebones case and had a co-worker build me a ‘windows machine’. It blew obviously, and had little of the geek appeal of my first computer […]

Cough, can I be excused, I don’t feel well

Thursday, February 3rd, 2005

Well after a world wind tour of the Far East and extreme northwestern part of the United States, my mini finally made its way to Atlanta this morning. I don’t think their going to fall for my ‘sick routine’ again at work, one dentist and doctor trip already this month. Oh well needless to say […]

And So it Begins…

As I mentioned yesterday, I went out and picked up a Mac mini at a local store instead of waiting on my BTO order from Apple. My configuration is based on the faster 1.4GHz model with 512MB RAM, SuperDrive and Bluetooth. I may upgrade to Airport Extreme in the future and adjust the RAM as […]

Matinee VIDEO_TS Launcher

Monday, January 31st, 2005

While Jonathan is whiling away the hours in total seclusion, hoarding his Mac mini all to himself, err wait I’m not bitter. Any way while we anxiously await his initial impressions, I thought another ‘useful software’ tip was in order. With the various still in development Mac HT front ends make their way out into our […]

Mini Arrives!!

Monday, January 31st, 2005

Well – I’ve been dying waiting and when I discovered that Tekserve a local Mac shop had the mini in stock, I immediately ran out and picked it up. I’ve been seriously regretting not ordering mine as soon as it was announced. My Apple BTO system is still not even scheduled to ship until 2/22. […]

Where’s the scroll wheel?

Saturday, January 29th, 2005

Articles like this one, about Apple mice, are the kind of things new Mac Mini owners should investigate ‘before’ yours arrives. Every bit of Mac yes’s and no no’s you can get under your belt before hand helps ensure your not banging your head against that new keyboard instead of enjoying it. Much akin to […]
