mmm, VPC6 download running at 270 KB/s. Very Nice. Uploads at 2 KB. I'm such a leecher. Eh, well, most likely it'll just be another run, test, nah-I'll-never-use-this, and trash piece of software.

Why would anyone want iLife..? Heck, why is it on BitTorrent...? o.O

weirdos. I suppose GarageBand might be useful to some people, but iMovie, iPhoto, and iTunes can all be downloaded free from apple... right? so weird...

And defragging my hd did help... now iTunes doesn't take forever to load (iTunes now loads in half a dockbounce instead of 10. System boots in about a minute and a half instead of three or four. So Lady may wish to give defragmenting your hard disk a try.. do it overnight/overday when you don't need the computer or would like to keep yourself off the computer. I'll bring in the CD monday.)... and overall the system's running faster. Or maybe that's just because the iMac is handling the webserving. I should copy the files and database back... _should_

...but it's not like my sister uses her iMac as much as I use my computer... I wish I had time to read into how to distribute the webserving weight over multiple system...

Also wish I had time to try installing mySQL, perl, and apache onto my old mac... maybe it could do webhosting..? o.O it is hooked up the internet, after all... just turned off most of the time. Need to take a look at the linux on mac site, if I can find it again. I think I'll be more comfortable working in the linux environment when it comes to webhosting and stuff like that.

I really should force myself to study. ::sighs::

you know, I DO read all of your tech-posts, I just don't get a chance to comment to all of them . . .

where's a working BitTorrent site (so I can put in requests XD)?

I will give it a try, this weekend, and install the Norton System Utilities, too.

::nods:: I know... I think? Well, the tech posts are really just for me to reflect on and record info so I can waste a few hours searching for something that I think I posted. ::looks at the "DO":: would I be reading too much into your comment if I wondered if that was an slightly annoyed "DO"? probably am...

http://suprnova.org/ has mac stuff... it's the only place I know of with mac warez at this point. http://novasearch.net/ is an unofficial search engine for suprnova.org. (if suprnova doesn't load the first time, just hit reload... they rely on a mass network of mirrors, and sometimes mirrors go down). There's a forum, but I'm not too sure if one can put in requests... probably can. I've just never bothered doing so
myself... ::shrugs:: What are you going to request?

(and... I thought you had problems with BitTorrent...?)

::muses:: Norton Systemworks 3 seems to be better than Utilities. ::shrugs:: It takes a two LiveUpdate sessions and a reboot to get it working with 10.3 though... although that might not apply to you, since to do most defragmenting and disk checking, you'll probably need/be safer to boot from the CD. I think it's bootable... the required system files are there, but I haven't tried...

yeah, I can't run BitTorrent myself, I meant to see for what to request from you ;p

I don't remember if it's SystemWorks or Utilities, it's a long story, anyway.

Ah.. heh, that'll work as well.
