Try a search on your disk for KeyCaps (without space :) ). Its a free on screen keyboard that will cut you some slack. If not on your disk, it's out there somewhere.

....I solved the problem:) I got a new machine fedexed to me:) an iMac G4 (800Mhz/80G/768MB RAM) with a 17' flat screen 1440X900 res:) SuperDrive too (CD/DVD burner)... pretty outrageous, actually. Pulled it out of the box, stuck the cords in, fired it up, it walked me through a set up, and believe it or not, it actually worked, I got online, came here, and am firing off my first new post:)

going to check out how this osX works and see if I can find some demos....hasta...think I'm 10.2?

Wow! So your a new father? Glad to hear that dogboy! I guess your new baby came with Jaguar built in. If not, you can get it for free.

> space
... hehehehe yeah, I was cutting and pasting spaces for a few days.... but I thought it was funnier to use the hyphens:) plus I have all these hyphenated urls....so I'm used to hitting that key:)

>Jaguar
I don't know... I don't see that word anywhere, so maybe not... 10.2 is what it says.... but I LIKE it! The only thing I don't like is that you cant minimize the windows....instead they go down to your 'dock' ....don't think I like that.... I usually have lots of windows open and I like it that way.

but tell you the truth, I think this is the easiest mac yet... even if you are on 9.... very intuitive layout.

Macguru- you said "If not, you can get it for free. "

Woah I have an iMAC with OS X on it- I can upgrade to Jaguar for free? Or is it only for people who bought a new computer after jaguar that didn't come with it?

Thanks :)

dogboy,

Jaguar is the codename for mac OS X.2 (10.2).

So you like patting the big cat? But you miss the 'windowshade' function? WindowShade X is the only way I know to restore this function. This 7 $ shareware reduces the window to just its title bar, you can also turn any window transparent (or semi-transparent), allowing you to easily see what's behind it.

celerityfm,

Unfortunatly, it's the later. I had to pay for it.

>Re: WindowShade
sounds great

>Re: Jaguar
...This dog loves cats.... and this cat is PHAT!

I love the big screen the most... really clear. I know most of you have the big monitors, but I have been on a crt 15" for years. and with the hi-res, there seems to be tons of horizantal screen.... you can almost have two browser windows open (to default), side by side.
