What I am working with isn't really classified as a 'setup' so I will wait until I get everything together. Real excited to see Part 15 though!

In regards to those who have their monitors in portrait mode, do you have to adjust any settings to do that? More or less, what is the process in setting that up?

There is a setting in System Preferences to rotate the image 90º, 180º, or 270º.

What are you, a stock trader? If not, what are all of those graphs on the screens?

It took you 4 years to realize that glossy screen+window directly behind you=bad? Why didn't you do it sooner?

It's an MX Revolution mouse. The precursor to the MX Performance mouse which replaced it.

I have both but still prefer the older Revolution.

I have one of those, too! Framed and all. My favorite part about it is that it was issued January 8, 2007--one day before Apple Computer, Inc. became Apple, Inc. Says the former and I am NEVER getting rid of that.

I'll post my setup soon. Hopefully I can get either a new MBP tomorrow or a new iPad. Or both? Who knows.

15 years of using a Mac...in 18 years of being alive!!

Macintosh SE/30: My dad's...I remember playing Kid Pix on it.

Macintosh Performa 6400 180Mhz: Family computer in the elementary school days. We got Time Warner's broadband on it at some point!!

Power Mac G4 Cube 500Mhz/256MB/ATI RAGE 16MB/30GB: Beautiful computer. I still actually have it somewhere. Formerly a family computer that was passed down to me.

Core Duo MacBook Pro 2.16Ghz/2GB: Another hand-me-down

iMac G5 1.8Ghz/768MB/64VRAM/160GB: Yes. Another hand-me-down!!!

Core 2 Duo MacBook Pro 2.4Ghz/2GB/250GB: Fried the logic board!!!

Thunderbolt MacBook (When it comes out...)

They're incredibly great if you're a light listener. They can handle pretty much anything, and they get a good amount of loudness when turned up.

I went to these from the Logitech Z-5500 simply cause playing music through a 5.1 PC setup was kinda difficult (my music would trip over the L/C/R channels), and sometimes sounded clutter since you've got a 3.5" driver trying to drive mid's and high's.

Not to say the M10s are for audiophiles, nor am I one myself, but for a desktop setup and playing music at a low to moderate, it sounds extremely smooth while looking extremely sleek.

So the Swans wont shake the house but they're a pleasure to the ears if you're looking for a decent setup with clean output.
