If you put it on wheels, you don't have to push so hard. :p Got the spining ball of doom, accessing a data base. The other time another Mac tried to use the same node, I lost the Mac totally and had reboot the G5 to reconcile a dffferent node.

I thought you had a kernel panic, Mac version of BSOD (only had like 1 I think in like 5yrs or so and I did something dumb to cause it I think).

So what do to cause your lockup? Also never hurts to repair permissions if your having issues.

i was doing a 3d picture, adding lights and such and had a movie on in the background using mplayer, then the system just completly locked, sound went weird, could'nt move mouse, after i rebooted i did a disc check and permissions check, both said everything was fine

First Mac I ever owned, Internet Explorer crashed on me... will always remember that.

As for more recent escapades though, Logic 9 keeps crashing on me because I have an old version of Predator FX installed which doesn't agree with Snow Lepper 100%, maybe about 76%.

Also have had many KP's back on the old iBook G4 from using unsupported kernel extensions to drive the internal wireless card to run it in passive mode.

My MAC has yet to crash. I don't where they get the "Mine Always Crashes" from.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
