Airport Name Suggestions...

FireWireless

Ethernot

AirConnect

Invisinet

Chad

* Chad the First two are pretty funny, let's hope the iBook isn't 'FireWireless' for too long. The "Ethernot"thou is not true. I like AirConnect but I bet it's taken ! same with Invisinet.
Good suggestions!


Is Avermedia's USB Presenter out Yet ?

Do you have any information about when and how to get ahold of Avermedia's USBpresenter? I have been waiting for it to come out!

Martha

* * AverMedia's press release on USBPresenter and according to reports it should be shipping now you can contact them at 1-800-863-2332


Folder Synchronizer...

HI
Would you notify to all the iBook and PowerBook users the new release of "FoldersSynchonizer", a nifty mac-shareware which synchronizes and backups disks, folders, and files.

You can find it at: Folders Synchronizer

* Lorenzo, thanks for the heads up ,it indeed looks like a very nifty program for syncing and backing upfolders and files when I get my Performa set up I'll give a try!


iBook locking up...

I've been reading about your tale of woe and its got me a bit scared. I got an ibook in October and its my first mac in years. It locks up more than any computer I've ever owned but I still like it. Are stories like yours commonplace or is this just an OS9 issue?

Reed Carlson

* Reed I can assure you that the reason you read so many stories on the web is because if there's something wrong the web is the best place to go to look for answers. The Majority of folks are not having problems, hence you don't here about it. The First thing to do is call Apple, then look for updates at Apple, , Version Tracker and Macintouch's Mac OS 9 Updates then check out these forums:

MacFixIt's Troubleshooting Mac OS 9 MacFixIt Report , Troubleshooting Mac OS 9 MacFixIt Forum , The iBook and Airport Reports and Macintouch's Mac OS 9 Compatibility .


iBook Versus Presentations...

I just bought a Ibook... I was intending to use it for presentations (with a data show or something of that kind...) Now I found there is no port for another monitor or for video. Is there any solution... or should I have bought a Power Book instead of a Ibook?

In that case what is a laptop good for? This problem never ocurred to me - when everybody is using a computer for presentations Apple just forgot it?

Please, reply ALSO by e-mail!

Thanks a lot!!

Maria

* AverMedia's press release on USBPresenter and according to reports it should be shipping now you can contact them at 1-800-863-2332


Crash Advice...

Hi,

If you haven't solved your problem yet, maybe this will help, it's from Apple's Support page.

If you selected the "Preserve memory contents on sleep" option in the Energy Saver control panel, the iBook protects your RAM contents during sleep by saving all of your open work to a hidden file on the hard drive. Refer to TIL article 60429: "iBook: Description of Preserve Memory Contents on Sleep" for more information. In some rare circumstances, the iBook may have trouble reading this file and fail to start up properly. If this happens, restart the computer and immediately press the Escape key. Keep the key pressed down until you see the Happy Mac icon, then release the key.

Note: All RAM contents are lost when doing this. Pressing theEscape key at startup tells the iBook to bypass reloading the RAM file and to start up normally.s.

Dustin

*Thanks , In the end I ended up re-initalizing my hard drive.


More Crash Advice...

HI had the same experience happen to me. I found this in the Apple Tech Info Library Article number 58480:

If you selected the "Preserve memory contents on sleep" option in the Energy Saver control panel, the iBook protects your RAM contents during sleep by saving all of your open work to a hidden file on the hard drive. Refer to TIL article 60429: "iBook: Description of Preserve Memory Contents on Sleep" for more information.

In some rare circumstances, the iBook may have trouble reading this file and fail to start up properly. If this happens, restart the computer and immediately press the Escape key. Keep the key pressed down until you see the Happy Mac icon, then release the key.

Note: All RAM contents are lost when doing this. Pressing the Escape key at startup tells the iBook to bypass reloading the RAM file and to start up normally.

So, hold down esc while starting up :-)
