How would you feel about at MPLS Geek Gather location for a change? If you like the idea, where would we meet? I suggested Wilde Roast Cafe in the past but there is some concern that it may not lend itself to a larger group (more than 5 or 6 of us). Please share your thoughts and comments.
Hello Geeks. I have a friend who is looking at doing audio/video recording on Windows. What software is the best for doing such a thing? I know on the Mac the most simply way to get A/V out to someone is the podcasting creator inside of Garage Band. Very simple, anyone can do it. On the Mac of course you have the professional tools you can use but those require a little bit more skill.
Bottom line…. does anyone know of a personal or professional level piece of software to record, edit and publish A/V content?
For those of you who don’t know, I’m running a start up Spanish language immersion summer camp out in Vermont this year. It’s sponsored by Middlebury College, which you may know of.
We’re looking to lease some machines for the 6 week summer program to avoid having to buy. I’m looking for tips on any Apple angles for leasing machines. Anyone have experience with this?
We have 3 sites serving 150 – 250 secondary students at each site, so quantities would be reasonable.
I’m thinking of converting a bunch of old sentimental VHS tapes to DVD for my parents for Christmas.
Anyone have a suggestion for the in-between converter or have one I could possibly borrow?
I’d be going from VHS to firewire in a Mac. I just want to convert the video into a new format and keep all the raw footage for maybe a project down the road.
Simple and cost-effective are both at the top of my list.
I’m looking for a single executable win32 ISO mounter. I use LCISOCreator all the time, a single executable ISO creator, and am looking for a complement to that application.
I’m up for any suggestions, even installed items.
Web-design on OS X, specifically on the x86 platform for a MacBook.
A friend of mine is thinking of buying his girlfriend some web-design software. She’s already a graphic designer, but wants to learn more web-design. Any suggestions for what works well and/or is currently in use by the industry?
We started a blog for sustainable architecture at LOCUS Architecture. We are just getting off the ground, so don’t expect oodles of content just yet. I am also just learning how to administer a blog in general – I will have questions when we congregate next week ;) Any suggestions and recommendations are welcome – so is Continue reading LOCUS Blog (beta) now live
Does anybody have any thoughts on how to successfully backup a growing small business? We have a total of about 100GB that we currently backup on a daily basis to an external 2.5″HD (very portable). The amount of backup storage we need is increasing at a slow but steady rate, so that we will be exceeding it within a few weeks. When we do, I have to manually archive files on the client computers to reduce the amount of data that gets backed up. This is very time consuming and defeats the purpose of the automated task idea. In addition, there is only one backup set. The data gets overwritten/added on to on a daily basis. FYI, we run Dantz Retrospect to pull the files from 5 clients and one server (all OS X).
So here are the two goals we are trying to achieve:
1) Increased backup security by going to 2 or more sets (Right now there is only one medium, and once that gets overwritten or if it should ever break, there is no other backup layer)
2) Increased storage capacity to allow for future growth (Right now we have to either manually archive or buy a bigger HD each time we exceed our current GB limit)
Any thoughts on the subject are greatly appreciated. Thanks, Tim.
So the new iBooks, the MacBooks, are finally here. The feature set looks great and the pricepoints are okay, too. That’s for the white MacBooks. I spent a few minutes comparing the white 2.0GHz and the black 2.0GHz. Same specs, except 20GB more HD (a $50 option on the white MacBook) and couldn’t find any other differences, other than the color that is. So does black really cost $150 or am I just dazed?
Does anybody have a recommendation for a free utility that allow me to clone an active OS X system folder to an external drive and make it bootable from there?
