Why multiple copies of menu items mac osx? Help... Answered

Why when I select "Open With," on an item on my desktop do multiple of the same options appear (I think I worded that weirdly, just look at the picture). This happens on my G3 ppc 600mhz iBook, G4 ppc dual 500mhz PowerMac, and is even worse on my 700mhz G4 ppc iMac. I don't have this problem on my intel MacMini. I'm very good with macs, but how do I solve this problem?

Power Mac G4 Freezing

Again my Power Mac G4 is acting up again.  This time it freezes usually after about an hour and a half of use.  When monitoring activity monitor, the process called SustemUIServer turns red, and the computer freezes, also the CPU's shut down completely.  If I an watching a video the sound will repeat in a little clip over and over again like a broken record.  I have downgraded the computer from 2Gb of RAM to 1.5 as one of my sticks of RAM was bad, so obviously it is not a RAM problem. Yes I have ran various RAM testing programs such as MemTest86, and that had no issues.  Also with YouTube videos the video will freeze and the mouse wont move.  I will post specs of the mac soon so you know exactly what we are working with. And for anyone wondering, it's running Mac OS 10.5.8, Leopard

Is there a way to hook up a Ti-84 to my cell phone? Answered

I want to hook up a Ti-84 to my PPC-6700. i was wondering if first if this is possible and second if this is a "good" way to get programs on to it... don't ask me why i cant just hook them up to my computer... i will just say that i cant. the way it would most likely work is through both of the usb ports... (one on each device).

current or voltage for rail gun?

Hello i've ben wanting to make a powerful rail gun. I have ben checking out capacitors but don't know which one to buy. what my main question is, should i get a high capacitor with high voltage discharges? or should i get a high voltage capacitor? will this capacitor work? (http://nl.rs-online.com/web/p/products/7637858/?cm_mmc=NL-PPC-_-google-_-3_NL_NL_M_IP_and_E_Exact-_-cooper_bussmann%7Celectric_double_layer_capacitors&mkwid;=sagNlIMw4_dc%7Cpcrid%7C90954405920%7Cpkw%7Cxv3560+2r7407+r%7Cpmt%7Ce%7Cprd%7C&gclid;=CjwKEAiAoOvEBRDD25uyu9Lg9ycSJAD0cnByHZD584cPkCSCgOnFENsjk4lnghmHy3XmwBKaYeWquhoCukvw_wcB) and is current more important than volts in a rail gun? thanks. sorry for my bad english.

How can I speed up my PowerMac G5?

I've got a 2003 (gosh, is it that old?) PowerMac G5 that is really starting to show its age.  Heck, my iPod and iPad play videos more smoothly than it can!  Everything from importing photos to movies to photoshop is slow.  And forget about games!  Unfortunately I'm not in a financial position at the moment to buy a new Mac (and forget about suggesting a PC, because I will refuse!), so the only thing I can do is try to squeeze a bit more speed out of the computer I have.  Got any ideas?  Here are the current specs: Dual 1.8GHz PowerPC G5 processors RAM maxed out at 4GB 1 TB and 500 GB hard drives installed DVD burner Mac OS X 10.5.8 (the last version that will run on PPC)

I need a way to supercool a laptop, STAT!

Well I'm getting tired again of my mac being extremely sluggish most of the time (the hd is pretty fragmented, too lazy to get my boot disk takes a few hours to defrag). A lot of the "sluggishness" is due in part to the rather extremely hot 1.2ghz ppc processor. I've tried putting xbox heatsinks on it (like seen in my instructable, search that shit) and I even made an addition of putting a fan ontop, but at the most I might have seen a reduction of 5C, but under load the fan made no difference. I know the internal fan can cool it down from like 78C (it gets hotter playing halo) to a nice 50C in a hurry at full speed. I haven't touched it though (wanting to hardwire it badly) because it has like 9 different wires for whatever reason (ground, positive and your sensor readout is all you should need right??). Anyone have at least some half assed idea of what I could throw together in a jumble? And yes, I've thought of using a peice of plexi-glass and cutting holes in it for computer fans and making a souped up cooling pad, but I don't have the fans.
