    Hi gang...

    I've been contacted by a forum member to run the following:

    ioreg -l -w0 -p IODeviceTree | grep device-properties > dump.txt

    This person wants to try to get a 8800 win video card working in MacPro.

    From reading the man page, this looks innocent...I just want to be sure (as someone new to MacOS/unix) that I'm not sending out info that could be used against me. I don't mind helping, but don't want to screw myself, either.

    thanks for your help unix experts!!

    Looks like a dump of the card's bootloader. There's nothing personally identifiable in it, unless there's a serial number in there somewhere.
