      Hello mate, have been looking into your tutorial of how to optimize TFF on powerpc machines, and i love it. But my problem is that my 1 ghz powerbook performs tenfourfox better than my dual 1ghz QS with double amount of RAM too. any way to optimize the dual processors or someway to improve it on the QS? thanks a lot.

      Hey what's been happening? Have you given any more thought as to whether staying with Sprint or moving elsewhere?

      Also are still on the original unlimited plan? And do you know if they throttle or how to tell if they throttle? I was looking at the new plans but if you switch to one of the new ones they will now charge $40 per phone for access fee. Now it's $19.99 plus $10 for each extra line. My wife doesn't like change and if it wasn't for her I think I'd jump to either t-mo or att.

      Any thoughts? By the way where in Jersey do you live?

      It should do just fine. My coworker was running a G4/450 PCI on Leopard using CS4 with 1.75GB ram and she had no real issues. I run it all the time on my Powerbook and it's pretty quick on my QS. Shouldn't be a problem.

      Ah ok thanks! I only use Photoshop and Illustrator so I should be just fine. Adobe still offers downloads of individual CS4 programs on it's website, provided you have a serial key. What are the performance of these programs on a Quicksilver like mine?

      To CYB3RBYTE:

      The last version you can use on a PowerPC Mac is CS4. You will have to use individual installers as the MS version won't install all the apps to an Intel Mac.

      Additionally, some apps require a G5 processor. However, the main apps, ID, Illy and PS will install and run on a G4.

      Hi! I know you are very wise when it comes to Adobe Creative Suite usage on PowerPC, and I have a question. Do you know the latest version of CS my Quicksilver can run (I know you have a very nice QS)? It's the machine in my signature, and it is a 867MHZ with 1.5GB RAM. I would probably only use Photoshop, since I am a fledgling photographer and would like to maybe use my QS for light photo editing. Thanks!

      Wow, I didn't think anything would run that well without new or any thermal paste. I have some arctic silver 5 on the way (which is taking longer than I thought...). I've watched a lot of videos and stuff on how to apply it, and it seems pretty simple. The thermal pad on the GPU seemed fine, so I won't remove it unless it has overheating issues.

      So let me get this right: you put your wife's PowerBook G4 12" together without the spring-screws OR thermal paste?

      So is your PB completely down then? I'm guessing that's why you picked up the MDD..

      Not sure about PS Elements, but Photoshop CS4 is Universal, i.e., the last version that will run on PowerPC Leopard.

      You seeem pretty bright - any idea what was the last version of Photoshop Elements or Photoshop itself to run under Leopard? Thanks. Bill

      My understanding is that somewhere around 300 cycles is the life expectancy. So, yes, that's what you're looking at. Apple states the same. That said, things depend on how you use it. My battery on my 1Ghz Mac is at 598 cycles. It's the original battery, but I'm the second owner and never replaced it. So, it's spent 3 and a half years with me and from 2003 to Nov. 2009 with the original owner on the same battery (I assume, since it's not a third party battery). It lasts about 5 minutes, but I'm always using this Mac on AC power so I've never seen the need to spend the money to replace it - yet.

      Hi, quick question.. I know I should know the answer to this but need some clarification. Nothing wrong asking for help even though I should know the answer. Ok, so I have a PB G4 1.67 DLSD. My battery's cycles are nearing 300.. something strange is going on. When I connect my AC adapter to charge the battery, the ring glows amber to green and vice versa. I checked with my son's PowerBook 17 inch and used his battery and noticed the flashing amber-green-green-amber did NOT occur, so my DC-IN port is fine and working. Does this mean my battery at 300 cycles is just about dead? Could this cause the flashing amber-green?

      Thanks,

      Hows it going,I see your pretty much the king of straight forward advice on powerbooks so I got a question.I have two 1.5ghz 15.2 powerbooks and I am wondering do I have to have the disc to restore the computer one is 10.4.11 and other is 10.5.8 I am asking because I have bad luck with my computers getting slow etc. etc.Is there a way to make my own install disc?I know it sounds like stupid newbie stuff,just seeing if I can get around paying high price for retail disc.Thanks in advance.
