The Discreet Discussion Forums appear to be closed - are these the ones that you refer to: http://talk.discreet.com?

I was a big CineStream fan until Media 100 sold out to Discreet. Now CineStream is end-of-lifed, so the value of having discussion forums is great and hopefully we can answer your EditDV questions.

My intial feedaback without knowing more about your setup is that you may have not completely removed all of the components of the previous install, and somehow perhaps the prefs file got damaged. Can't say much more until I know what OS you are running, though.

Titanium PowerBook G4 - Student Discount

I just received this from Apple via email:
------
Go Back to School in Style

The Titanium PowerBook G4 delivers desktop power in a package so portable you can easily take it with you wherever you go. It comes with a wide 15.2-inch (diagonal) display, a complete selection of ways to connect to wired and wireless networks,(1) and a full complement of bundled software you've come to expect from Apple. The PowerBook G4 also doubles as your entertainment center, enabling you to play your favorite DVDs and CDs or chat online with your friends. And for a limited time, you can save up to $380* off the retail price of a PowerBook G4--this includes up to an additional $150 savings on top of the regular Apple Store for Education Individuals discount. Act now, this special back-to-school offer expires September 25, 2002.

Gee whiz. Combine this with an educational discount on FCP, and that's enough to make me go back to UT to get my Master's!

I've been looking for an excuse for awile now...

That is why I enroll in Houston Community College each year. It allows me to buy cool gear at a greatly reduced price. Plus I get to learn cool things...most of the time. My G4 was at a student rate as was FCP. Very happy with that.

Heck if I had the chance to attend UT's film program, I would jump at it. From what I understand it is one of the best in the country. Did you get your undergrad there? Man Chris Hurd rubbing elbows with Robert Rodriguez!

mac help feature

dear martin,
mac online db or mac help would be exrtordinarily helpful if i already knew what i was looking for.
i know where my speakers are and how to change my settings,
and what the dock is and how mac is going to make my life one big digital hub, but if you put in 'useful programs and features of osX' it kind of confuses it, and i am only told what the mac wants to tell me, which is that it's new interface is liquid.
. . . great.
thanks for the suggestion tho.

Jason,

I see what you mean. The Help center is great for lerning basic stuff a manual would treach you though. Like short cuts, scripting etc

I've run OSX for a year now and I've never had to use the UNIX terminal once (happy to say). But it's nice that it's there.

Bare Feats did a speed test of three 1GHz G4 (new, old and server) http://www.barefeats.com/pmddr.html The results are interesting and a little surprising.

Yes, and if those results are accurate, it is further testimony of the value of the presently soon to be discontinued models. The next rev is going to be the sweet spot for implimenting xServe tech into the G4 desktop line.

I hope they run the same tests after Jaguar is released. I'm currious to see if the OS will make a difference.

recommendations on enclosures

I'm pretty sure that I'm going to go for a FireWire enclosure and then use it to serve up a 120g hard drive. I haven't yet seen a recommendation on an enclosure brand or vendor aside from warning to get one with the Oxford (#?) chipset. Anyone have a favourite?

Keith,
That idea has intrigued me also. I've only purchased packaged drives so far. But if I were shopping for an adapter/enclosure I'd sure give WiebeTech a hard look. After purchasing one of their 40Gb bus-powered drives (which kicks serious butt for a bus-powered pocket drive, by the way) I sent them an email with some comments and suggestions for future modifications. Two hours later Jim Wiebe himself responded to my note with a thanks and very kind remarks.

BTW, you might be interested in this BareFeats article from January. It looks at which ATA drive performs the best in a FireWire enclosure/adapter.
