    Dude, is good that you have a Mac but would be better if you knew how to use it... pull down the resolution of those pictures, way to big and heavy to load. :rolleyes:

    I do know how to use my mac. maybe you need to get a faster connection or use a higher screen res. high res is always best. its a 3.1 mp camera and takes pics @ 2048x1536 and I will never shrink them.

    are you used to 1mp cameras or something?

    Nice set up. mymemory's got a point though, maybe bring it down in resolution a little. I always forget to because I've got a pretty cool connection, but not everyone can be so fortunate.

    Not everyone has a big display and broadband.

    For print yes. Not always for the web. The first preview image should be at a size to serve all types of displays and connection speeds. Then you can have a link to a higher resolution image that a user can download if they choose to.

    Well people will never look at them. I'm on a 20" screen and can't view the whole image at once. If people get annoyed or inconvenienced they aren't going to stay at the site for long.

    Plus if you shrink them down you save on disk space and bandwidth.

    Aside from that, that is cool color combo on the tower.

    Unless big images are truly needed, i look at this akin to USING CAPS. It is shouting. Just my opinion.

    But nice setup though....

    Your G4 reminds me of a Storm Trooper from Star Wars!

    zen.state: That was probably the coolest "old" PowerMac I've ever seen. You have uploaded som pictures of your mac on macmod.com, right?

    Keep up the good work. I'm going to mod my Cube soon, it's going to awesome. Everybody that owns a modded mac upload some pictures!
