Thanks for the response, but I'm in the UK, want one that'll fit in the slot flush with the machine, and I dont really fancy paying $25 (£20) & P+P to ship it over here, thanks for trying to help though :p
I don't think they make one with the ports flush to the machine. The form factor of the slot is just too small.

Not everything in life can be just the way you want it. OWC sells to most places around the world. It's better to spend money on the proper hardware even if it's more. It's better than wasting even 10% as much on something that won't even work. You could use it as a bookmark. :)

You can also use google and combine words like pcmcia, usb 2.0 and Mac. If you took the initiative to find out some things on your own then you wouldn't have to find things that didn't suit you like WGoins88's suggestion. You may very well have to settle for something that isn't flush.

This thread is also a great example of something you can ask in one of the many many other threads you have started. I thought you understood that yesterday.. All those threads are PowerBook related.

Steady on! I posted this topic in a different thread because.. It is a different topic! People who could look for this for help like this in the future aren't going to find it in the 'I've just won a PowerBook' thread. You're making me feel like it's wrong to post threads on this forum. This is a completely different topic than the original one I posted. I'm not meant to post everything PowerBook related under the original thread, am I? And I HAVE googled it, that's the first thing any human being with half a head does, but they're all in the US apart from the one I've posted in my OP which is up on eBay & Amazon...

Edit : Maybe if you are so paranoid about people posting threads on here maybe you should ask the Admins to make seperate Sub-sections under the PowerPC section, like eMac, PowerBook, PowerMac Etc.

Something that will (99.999% sure) never happen because oh yes, this forum was created from all those sub-categories...

I think zens real point is that you seem to have opened about 5 threads (this may be off as I just quickly counted the ones I could see) and they are all slightly different, but close enough that some of them could've/should've been merged. (Not necessarily this one, but several of the others)- For instance your "selling a PC for a TiBook"and your "Just won a TiBook" Threads should really be a single thread (Most people would expect the outcome of a PC Sale to be in the same thread, and it clutters up the forum, which annoys zen (as well as other regular users), because it makes finding "totally" new things harder.

It also doesn't help that it seems that the "standard" practice in this forum is that if you buy a new Mac and then have issues, you stick it in the same singular purchasing thread.

Goftrey:

There isn't just one other thread. You have made at least 15 total threads for a computer you don't even have yet. You can make a thread just called PowerBook questions for new owner and ask many things in it.

I can promise you that I am far from being the only one here that is bothered about these kinds of posting habits. I am simply more vocal than most. In the end you will get less and less help.

Can you not understand at all that it's overkill saturation if you make a thread for every little question in your mind?

Hey Goftrey,

I've just done a bit of research and that card you linked to on your first post should work:

I have read and considered what you have said to me in previous threads, and I took it on board. I felt that this topic should've been put in a seperate thread, that's all...
