comment Attaching 3.5" desktop drive to MacBook SATA
@Cameron: Yeah, supposedly the old plastic MacBooks were comparatively among the easiest to upgrade the disk/RAM in Apple's lineup. I do wonder how I'll seat the cable, but the cable coming out of the machine doesn't bother me if I can get that extra capacity.

Unfortunately the mid-2007 MacBooks have FW400 instead of FW800. Even so, the SATA inside my MacBook is 1.5Gbps so I'd like to use that if at all possible.

Thanks for the link - yeah I definitely don't want to fry the drive. I wasn't aware of a voltage difference - are there any adapters I could use?

Thanks for your answer. I am aware of the USB route, but I haven't been that impressed with the speed of current USB externals. The SATA connection would suffice, provided it works of course :-)

comment How can I play music from my iPhone through my computer?
Thanks for your answer - sorry it's taken me a while to respond. I tried your suggestion the other day - iTunes successfully believed that it was the syncing computer for my iPhone; unfortunately, the lack of music and apps on the computer caused it to wipe them off my iPhone as well. :-/ I might give it another try in the future, but right now I can't figure out how to get it to leave my stuff on my device.

comment What does it mean when a %CPU exceeds (# of cores) x 100%?
Yeah, this was the only time I saw it. I actually went as high as 3,000% for a second, but the system was barely responsive so it was difficult to get a screenshot.

Yeah, it's a 2-year-old MacBook - 1 processor, 2 cores. So... probably a bug.

comment Why does Safari always hang?
It seems to be better, but I don't know if that was the update or the restart that did it. I'm going to accept this answer unless Safari starts acting up again.

@arathorn: I just get a blank page when I try to visit about:plugins. You sure that works for Safari?

Thanks for the tip - I've actually had CTF installed for a while. Could it be another plugin perhaps?

comment Does a Mini-DVI to DVI cable exist that's more than 6 inches long?
That's my current setup, but I hate the bulk at the end of the cable. I would much rather have a Mini-DVI to DVI cable with the adapter on the monitor end to convert to DVI, if such a cable exists.

Sorry it took so long, only now was I able to test the script and I'm pleased to say that it works very well. Thanks!

Wow, that definitely looks promising, thanks! It says it's for iTunes 7.7, so I'm not sure if it'll work with iTunes 8, but I'll give it a go.
