Here's an idea Pay for Skype or Nimbuzz out, so that you are using Mac software that should work with Audio Hijack. Their system is the one that integrates with the POTS. Your Mac would just be receiving digital audio data.

Yes - it is possible. I have a USB drive with bootable OS X versions from 10.6 to 10.10. Use disk utility to create the partitions you need. Under Partition you can choose the number of desired partitions. Make sure you select the GUID Partition Table (GPT) in Options. Use a tool like DiskMaker X to create the OS X drives for you. For OS X 10.9 and 10.10 ...

Okay.. Apple have a perfectly workable website titled "Create a bootable installer for OS X Mavericks or Yosemite" ( https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201372 ) Which tells you what to do via the Terminal, once you have successfully downloaded Install OS X Yosemite.app & Install OS X Mavericks.app. Their instructions are as follows: OS X Yosemite sudo ...

This worked perfectly for me on 10.10.3 (MBP early 2011): sudo pmset -a hibernatefile /Volumes/OtherVolume/sleepimage I created a path on the 2nd SSD to complete the above command "/Volumes/HD2/var/vm/sleepimage".

Installing Yosemite converted your hard drive to a Core Storage logical volume, and CS was only introduced in Lion (Wikipedia), so it makes sense that Snow Leopard would have no idea what to do with it. Here's how you undo CoreStorage (source - this method worked for me). It should be non-destructive, but as always, take a backup first! Also, note that any ...

I am running SNL 10.6.8 on a similar 2007 MBP, a little faster than yours (2.6 GHZ). Original OS was Tiger. I had initially upgraded to Lion but found it wouldn't run Final Cut Express 4.0 reliably. Good luck!

I have been unable to establish a permanent system boot solution, since 10.10 no longer uses /etc/.rc at boot, and the com.apple.dynamic_pager.plist method has failed.... however... sudo mkdir /Volumes/Swap/s sudo chmod 755 /Volumes/Swap/s sudo sysctl vm.swapfileprefix=/Volumes/Swap/s does change the stored prefix as reported by sysctl vm for the ...

A more recent option is to use the newer implementation of Fuse for OSX in combination with SSHFS. This is a better solution because most of the applications mentioned are either outdated or payed (and expensive). Fuse for OSX allows you to use new file systems in user space and SSHFS configures the system to allow you to connect to SSH drives ...

Try cleaning the dust bunnies out of the video card. After months of making me crazy I think I tracked it down to dust blocking the heat sink channels on my video card. I was blaming my freezed on Flash, but I realize that was working my video card just hard enough it got hot and quit. Haven't had a freeze in days.
