comment Black screen after failed restore - G5
Yeah, sounded like a bad image or install to me, but wanted to verify that you were using the correct media to install the OS on the correct arch.

comment ram upgrade works in safe mode but not in normal mode
yea, as long as you know it's the right kind it's highly likely it's just a bad RAM stick. let them know and they'll swap it out pretty quickly for you I'd bet.

What disk did you use when you tried to restore it? Or how did you try to restore it?

comment Black screen after failed restore - G5
Where exactly is this error showing? Does a black screen with it show up on boot?

did you verify that you bought the right RAM for your machine? (just do a search for "what RAM for my mac")

comment How do I get Wi-Fi info from within Terminal?
I suggested the symbolic link for the same reason TJ suggested, because you have got to have it linked to your $PATH, so I figured maybe the symbolic link would be less likely to give issues. Plus, many users do not use (or know how to use) .profile or .bash_profile. Both solutions work perfectly well :)

comment Trying to access remote FreeNAS AFP share halts system!
Poor description from me. Yes, I was curious if you were trying to connect using an external IP over LAN, but it sounds like you're not. I guess it's gotta be DNS or firewall somehow.

comment Low sound on headphones Macbook pro
Have you rebooted yet? Seems obvious, but this fixes a whole lot of audio issues.

That does sound odd, I'm not sure how to get AFP working in your DNS Zone file; an A record sounds good to me though. Are you trying to connect via DNS only internally?

comment Burning disks fails with error 0x80020022 on MacbookPro 2012
I'd give Apple a call and just ask them if it's within your warranty, sounds like a ambiguous issue with no solid solution that they should help with

If you're getting this behavior on all Macs, it's likely something to do with the FreeNAS or routing end. Are you all updated and configured correctly? Have you checked your FiOS router settings (assuming you're using their modem/router combo)?
