    Ok, a friend of mine who I convinced to switch to Apple - an iBook - only had dialup and needs to get all those lovely Apple updates.

    Is there a way to get them with my broadband and burn them to a disc for her?

    uhh...if it's an iBook why doesnt she just use your broadband connection?

    EDIT: Or go somewhere like a Public Library and use their connection (if they allow it)

    Work friend who lives a good 2 hours in the opposite direction from me... no easy access to broadband in Sydney for a non-wireless ibook...

    you could ask to borrow her ibook, update it, then return it.

    Sure. Thats a sound theory. So when you get your next NEW mac book you'll be happy to hand it over for an evening with your administrator password...? ;)

    Easy enough to burn and let her update that way.

    I for one wouldn't even have given up my crappy ol Windoze laptop - let alone the pride and joy of my life!

    Mmmmm note to self - work out if it is strange to talk about my Powerbook like that!?!??!
