The initial feedback I have had is that the site is a little too clean! I might try add a splash of colour soon. I've also been reading some web marketing forums. As a techie I've always been quite keen on the very clean pre-loaders and ajax loads (where there is no page refresh but lots of voids() ...

Seal, could you provide more details of your mac mini mods, especially with regards to the cooling system? sure, er the only major mod was the overclocking, which requires re-soldering of the mini's motherboard PCB, its quite tricky stuff and not for the faint hearted, as i already said, it invalid...

Better say this before the thread's locked. IMO apple appears to be very much against DIY'ers; it's one thing for them to not want to write a lot of drivers and so not let people buy most of their components themselves, but I see no reason why they couldn't allow the option of buying "mac kits", wi...

A mac mini may make a great file server, the only problem maybe if you want to run linux on it with airport as airport extreme is unsupported under linux. However, it's small quiet and, according to this, draws only 20 watts and only 28 whilst playing a dvd!!! http://www.tomshardware.com/howto/2005...

so... does that also mean that for the same RPM, drivespeeds will *theoretically* be increased 10 fold too? Either that or drivespeed can be greatly reduced and ensure the same throughput as current 7200rpm drives... and you know what that means guys! less heat + less noise! woowoo!

Out of all the "junk hotkeys" on my cheap microsoft keyboard, I only use mute, volume up and volume down. If the Logitech is easy to rewire/reprogram the hotkeys, then thatd be cool... yeah ...

yeah i cant imagine how anyone would be able to silence the scisor mechanism as its very compact. I hate to be the one that says this but unfortunately i think that some sort of grease would work well in silencing that type of mechanism, although i would never do it myself....

yeah saw that ages ago, its really ugly imo because of the huge border bits, also its not standard keyboard layout because of the arrow keys and home keys, its like a botched notebook keyboard with a numpad stuck on the side.
