any tiger questions?
hello all! My name is dave! Some call me mr.D
I know the newest is leapord, but tiger is still used, and a lot of cool tricks are still around for more then one item, from iPhone upgrades, to software tricks!
Later on I will be adding software links for common used tools, and tricks. As well as working iPhone firm ware, and tools to upgrade your phone!
I also have many hardware test cd's, and software! I'm a net work tech as well and offer hardware assistant for mac users!

I have a question about Tiger......... why the hell is anyone still using Tiger?
I have an old 500 mhz G3 iBook and I have Tiger on it so I know that some of the very oldest Macs have to use it, but it's been so long since a mac was made that couldn't run Leo I just don't see the problem.
It isn't like Vista where you need all these resources, or is filled with bugs and flaws. Leo is stable as a brick wall and quite fast actually as it is very optimized. Doesn't require much more space than Tiger, and most of the features can be disabled.
Also, to take advantage of the newer multimedia programs, you need Leo.
Appreciate your offer for tech, I'll bug you if I ever think of anything.

Its mostly program and machine compatibility. Also a big one is being able to BOOT or USE classic.
A lot of programers and music people still use some program that will only work hen used with 9.1-9.2...Also 10.2 comes with classic ENVI.
As far as te MAC being able to run lEO, i would try it, cant hurt...If it is sow, you can turn off some of the stuff it have..But i think its under the recomended levels.
Yes you can upgrade your machine...Or find another...I'm guessing youu want to keep your mac you have..Find out exactly what model it is, and i can look it up.
Also leo is 125.00....Not to many people are dishing it out, they cant afford to..Yes it is better, and less expensive then Windows. But money is money.
Again with any operating system there are programs that are going to work, and not going to work. Depends on what VER.
Anyone looking to upgrade..? I have Leo, Tiger, and new apple machines.New unibody Macbook Pro, the jacked Model.. Iphone 2G, and 3G, 3G's, And 4G.

I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.

Previous owner said he had upgraded to Leo and then went back down because it ran on the slow side. I think I will stick with Tiger because it is still a little on the slow side.iPhone 3g 8GB; iPhone 3GS 32GB

I have a question. I have an old imac, g4, and it has 256mb of ram, I want to change that 1024, which I've been told is possible. I checked up on it, and I was told that I'd have to get two 512 units, which I also understood. Now here's where I hit a hitch, it says I have zero free memory slots. So how am I going to get two of them in after taking the original out?

I went on crucial.com and after it scanned my computer it told me this:
# Currently Installed Memory: 256MB
# Available Memory Slots: 0
# Number of Banks: 1
# Dual Channel Support: No
# CPU Manufacturer:
# CPU Family: PowerPC G4 (3.3) 1.25 GHz
# CPU Speed: 1250 MHz
# The DIMM socket is not user accessible. The SODIMM socket is accessible from the bottom of the system.Q: How much memory can my computer handle?
Adding the maximum amount of memory will improve performance and help extend the useful life of your system as you run increasingly demanding software applications in the future.Each memory slot can hold DDR PC2700,DDR PC3200 with a maximum of 512MB per slot.*

ah, thanks for clearing that up.

I am pretty sure ur G4 can handle 2gb of ram. I have read this on many pages saying that 1gb was the supported amount, but it will recognize 2gb.iPhone 3g 8GB; iPhone 3GS 32GB

You would need 2 1gb sticks of pc2700 ram. You can but it at newegg.com I would go with the crucial ram. Also one stick must be laptop and one must be for desktops!iPhone 3g 8GB; iPhone 3GS 32GB

You mean I have to get one thats a specific laptop model and then one that's a specific desktop model? Everywhere I look it says notebooks, laptops, etc. Like so: Laptop memory.
And then I found one that didn't mention either: [ame="http://www.amazon.com/Crucial-Technology-CT12864X335-Unbuffered-Non-ECC/dp/B0002VAQR4/ref=pd_cp_e_1?pf_rd_p=413863501&pf_rd_s=center-41&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_i=B0006TTDF8&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIK X0DER&pf_rd_r=1PS9Q8NEJ8P9FJANZDCD"]http://www.amazon.com/Crucial-Technology-CT12864X335-Unbuffered-Non-ECC/dp/B0002VAQR4/ref=pd_cp_e_1?pf_rd_p=413863501&pf_rd_s=center-41&pf_rd_t=201&pf_rd_i=B0006TTDF8&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIK X0DER&pf_rd_r=1PS9Q8NEJ8P9FJANZDCD[/ame]
Just pick up one of each and I'll be golden?

Those are the same thing. There is no difference in notebooks or laptops. You will need one of those and one for desktops that can be found here...
Newegg.com - pqi POWER Series 1GB 184-Pin DDR SDRAM DDR 333 (PC 2700) Desktop Memory - Desktop Memory
Also you must realize that the second one, the desktop RAM, is a little more difficult to install. Here is a guide.
