    Just to add to my last comment, if you wanted to string two modems together I believe you would require a special port on the modem, not just the usual ethernet port.

    Also, if you search around...

    I believe Airport Express will handle ten clients simultaneously, and Airport Extreme will handle many more.

    Bad Movie, Bad!
    Woah! Real bad! Maaaaan!
    Who writes these error messages? :cool:
    I get this error message if I ever try to create a preview in Lightwave. What's "bad" is that it seems to be a...

    I still think the G5 is a faster processor than any Pentium. All the apps that are optimized for the G5 beat the pants off any Wintel machine. Look at Apple's Motion... it does particles and effects...

    It's a good time to upgrade your standard AE to pro AE. It costs a lot less to do it now than it did some years ago (when I did it!). I think AE7 is still far enough out to make it worth upgrading...

    A.E was the original compositing application. More people know it. It has the best plug-in support (even though some new plug-ins work in multiple compositing apps, a lot of the older ones are still...

    I think the issue is updating the SDK within Lightwave before updating Fprime.

    Fprime would be a much more useful tool if it could be used with other Lightwave plug-ins and image filters.

    The G5 towers are obviously going to be better machines than the entry level mini-Mac. Better graphics cards (which make modeling easier). More expandable for RAM etc. A G5 is going to be a much more...

    Most processor makers have put the megahertz race "on hold" for a short while, as they're putting their priorities into getting a dual-core processor to market, which will give them more of a boost...

    Just to emphasize what Zarathustra said...

    In Illustrator, don't forget to "create outlines" before saving the file as an eps. Failure to do that may be the reason for your the troubles.

    Any reason you use LW7.0 instead of 7.5? Wasn't it a free upgrade all the way to 7.5d?

    I never use the Viper. I just switch off anti-aliasing and hit F9 to render a frame for a quick preview.

    Who's re-writing the renderer? I don't think anyone is.

    I'm disappointed that Apple's Tiger OS requires a 32-bit application interface to be bolted onto a 64-bit command line renderer. I thought...

    I had great hopes for fprime, but was eventually disappointed.

    Apart from SDK issues and the loss of image plug-ins, it screws up my textures. It doesn't seem to handle gradients right.

    Itanium is dead my friends. It will never make it to the desktop. The IA-64 architecture was originally intended to replace x86 on the desktop, even though the first Itaniums were aimed at servers.

    EMT64 is borne out of Itanium's failure. After the demise of Itanium, Intel had do do something to get into the 64-bit business. Cloning the AMD64 processor and calling it Xeon64 or whatever was...

    onemanmedia, I guess you tried the basics like trashing preferences and repairing permissions? (you use Apple's Disk Utility to repair permissions)

    I think that goes without saying. Apple released the Tiger beta to key developers (I'm sure Newtek was among them) mid-2004 at the WWDC (developers' conference).

    In theory, 32-bit apps and 32-bit operating systems can use 4 gigs of RAM, but in practice most of them can only access 2 gigs of RAM, maximum.

    In the light of this, 2.5 gigs of RAM is a good...

    Windows is not more ready than OS X. The real reason is because Microsoft doesn't modify Windows very often, so all the old crud is still inside it. Developers don't have to do much work to keep up...

    Before everyone heads down to Cupertino waving pitchforks, I'd like to say that Mac OS X is fantastic for 3D. It's all there.
