and have we seen these?
now that is just fucking dope.
How odd. CTRL-SHIFT and Left and Right arrows are much more accessible to me for flipping the desktop cube if I'm not using the mouse. Taking my hands off the keyboard to give the monitor a smack seems a lot of wasted effort...
Clicky... my Desktop, just 'cos it makes me smile
You should really wack up the anisotropic filtering on that martin ... would look much better at oblique angles
You missed Chris's reply in that same thread. I'm talking about a hard switch which will work regardless of whether the computer is functioning or not. All the methods above use software to eject the disc. If MacOS is broken (and it *does* break, believe me), then you have to do serious faffing about to retrieve anything from the drive.
I know. I'm an Apple Engineer.
Hehe! Spot the game developer! :ilol:
My graphics card is a bit cheap... and I want a very fast response on the desktop so some of the niceties of Beryl are turned down... that particular filter (can't remember what it's called in Beryl Settings Manager) seems to make it a bit sluggish.
Alas it will kill your fill rate
Of course, you'd have no troubles with one of these in there ...
Phew...nice, but I'd be 1/3 of the way to a new Laptop for that price!
Hmm ... that says something about the sorta laptop id buy as i'd only be a 1/10th the way hehe
Hehe... yeah, but you'd be instantly crippling it with Windows so you'd need one running at double the speed, and with twice the memory just to make it useable
I use a mac not because it looks good,its the simple fact is when i started to use a computer it was a mac ,and it seems second nature for me to buy a mac,and now apple own emagic(the people who make logic) and version 7 only runs on a mac only,and for me i think logic kicks ass, and i no lots of peoplewho would agree with me,but i wish i could steal or the plugins and stuff,that a pc user could use for free, in my eyes pc's kick ass more that a mac but i`m not bothered i'm in love with logic 7,and of course my girl friend debra
There was a recent BBC article (I can't now find) covering a study on peoples preferences in OS/GUI.
It basically comes down to familiarity.
There's a surprise!
i thought long and hard about whether to get a pc or mac. i suppose in the end i chose a mac mainly because there seems to be a perception that they operate that little bit smoother for media applications.
who knows whether i've been suckered in by a common perception based on the social upmanship attempts of coolies who want to feign knowledge of computers to fill the void of the yawning chasm of their souls? crickey! erm....well there;s probably some truth in this as quite a few mac users are smug bastards. but i think that this is maybe judging the people who use the products instead of judging the product itself on it's merits. do we judge a ferrari car on who drives it; do we look at it as a feat of engineering; or do we look at it as a sign of where man's evolution has gone wrong or right? how you percieve these questions may well say a lot about how you see the world. socially, scientifically or philosophically.
there are a lot of very clued up people on this forum who have a great deal of knowledge about pc's. fine. i doff my cap to you sirs. it's just that not everyone shares your talents and abilities in this area and such people are easily seduced by a computer which provides a user friendly operating system. these people undoubtedly posses skills that you do not too.
there are many people too who see any computer, whether mac or pc, as a tool to accomplish a task (i.e. make some music); i would include myself in this. and the mac has allowed me to do this. a pc probably would have too. does a music producer really have to be able to pull his computer apart to be able to write music on it? does a guitarist have to be a technician to be able to play and express himself? jimmy page couldn;t even tune his flippin guitar!
if i paid a premium for a machine unnecessarily, so what? i've personally thoroughly enjoyed using the mac. it's definitely been hassle free for me in the only thing i use it for, and that;s making music. no internet, no word processing, nothing else.
so let's leave the cooly-sados to themselves as they parade their i-pods and bang on about their i lifestyle. don't lump us music chaps in with them. so come on fellow tune makers, stick together! channel your apple frustrations into some banging tunes and mac users, please work your smugness into some fluffy ambient grooves. :icool:
also, as a point of note, has anyone noticed that pc users seem far more militant (generally speaking) than mac users? i personally couldnt care less if you use a pc, but it would seem most pc users seem to care a rather unhealthy amount that im a mac user.....hmmmm....
I saw the the thread title,
internal monologue:- "oh for ****'s sake"
haven't read any of this thread.
here's an amusing page on the matter >> clickpossibly not worksafe, bad words in large print
That depends on the environment you are in. I'm no longer a pc militant cause I don't give a f....., I used to have mac by the way. But in 2003 when I was still studying there was this wave of mac user critisizing pc user. I remenber once this as.....h....e saying " well, pc users are pc users.....,with a smile and with such an attitude. I Guess that's when I started being pretty upset.
If I was given a mac I'd probably keep it.
I use Ableton Live - so as far as music is concerned I don't care either way.
I have a Mac because I use Final Cut Pro. And I earn cash from video editing and encoding.
Also - while I wouldn't say Macs are better than PCs, I would say that OSX shits on Windows. I actually tried Vista the other day... god its awful.
now for pc too
