    Can somebody point me a the best Internet forums for posting questions and or searching for general mac related issues. Obviously macrumors is one of the better ones but any others I should frequent?

    A quick Google search brought up some sites. Of which MacRumors turned up second ;)

    Course there's always Apple's forums.

    i think the best mac forums are right here to be honest, spymac used to be popular, but certainly aren't of any help... and as stated OSXHints is good for finding small useful bits of info

    btw, how did you get the "æ" Mitthrawnuruodo?

    Yes, but the OP did ask for other places, and MacOSXHints is the only other forum I've ever bothered to register on (even if I managed to misspell my "name" :eek:).

    Standard key on Norwegian keyboards... ;) we regularly use æ, ø and å, in addition to the 26 letters of the English alphabet:

    oh i agree that OSXHints are probably the only other good resource for mac problems and issues etc...

    lucky, hmm i guess i will have to figure out how to get that on a US KB....
    btw, does it have any particular meaning to it?

    Also Option-' on the English keyboard. ;)

    Mmm...encyclopædia.

    Not only does this site have a handy forum with helpful users, there are also wiki guides that may contain answers to many of your questions.

    No, not really, just another couple of vowles... off the top of my head: the æ is usually pronounced about as the 'a' in the English "bad", the ø as the 'o' in "work" and the å as the 'ou' in "bought". I cannot believe you English can get by with just 6 vowles. 9 is so much...more... :p ;)

    Back OT: Apple support has a nice set of RSS feeds, that can be an idea to browse through. Unless you're just interested in one or two products, I recommend the New Support Articles feed, which covers all products/subjects... :)
