    I was just playing with iTunes and hit some random keys while visual effects were on (as you do.) And the keys did stuff!

    Now I might be a bit slow on this, but, chances are, there are others out there who didn't know about this. So here's a list of what the keys do when visual effects are on:

    H or ?: help
    F: show/hide frame rate
    T: toggle frame rate capping
    B: show Apple
    I: track info
    Q or W: change pattern
    A or S: change shape
    Z or X: change colour
    N: toggle high contrast colours
    R: random config
    C: current config
    M: freeze config
    D: defaults

    Cool, eh?

    Yup! SoundJam's visual plug-ins had key settings too. I always keep my framerate on so I'm constantly reminded how crappy my Rage128Pro card is. :D

    I hear you man! I'd upgrade my graphics card in a flat second if I could... but I've got the good ol' PCI graphics G4 so I'm SOL. Another big reason why I'm chomping at the bit for a new PowerMac...

    Unless:
    a) your iMac is alaready on order, or
    b) you have a PCI Mac,

    go out and spend the $150 on a GF2MX-400. It's the best thing you could ever hope to do with an old Mac and $150.

    That's $150 Australian, by the way. It's nice talking to an Aussie so I don't have to convert currencies and all that jazz!

    Sounds sweet.

    I was on the list for an iMac at Next Byte (4th on the list) and Computers Now (40th on the list).

    I ended up getting it from Computers Now(!) I called Next Byte to cancel my order, only to be told, 'oh, that's a shame, it came in a while ago, we just haven't got around to calling anyone yet.'

    Nice service! They lost $4k plus residuals because they were too lazy to pick up the phone...

    Oh well, I like CompNow better anyway.
