Maybe not humor...

As I've Matured...  

I've learned that you cannot make someone love you. All you can do is stalk them and hope they panic and give in...

I've learned that one good turn gets most of the blankets.

I've learned that no matter how much I care, some people are just mules.

I've learned that it takes years to build up trust, and it only takes suspicion, not proof, to destroy it.

I've learned that whatever hits the fan will not be evenly distributed.

I've learned that you shouldn't compare yourself to others-they are more screwed up than you think.

I've learned that depression is merely anger without enthusiasm.

I've learned that it is not what you wear; it is how you take it off.

I've learned that you can keep being nauseous long after you think you're finished.

I've learned to not sweat the petty things, and not pet the sweaty things.    

I've learned that ex's are like fungus, and keep coming back.

I've learned age is a very high price to pay for maturity.

I've learned that I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy it.

I've learned that we are responsible for what we do, unless we are celebrities.

I've learned that artificial intelligence is no match for natural stupidity.

I've learned that 99% of the time when something isn't working in your house, one of your kids did it

I've learned that there is a fine line between genius and insanity.

I've learned that the people you care most about in life are taken from you too soon and all the less important ones just never go away.  And the real pains in the butt are permanent.

2007 / G4 and printing with Epson, need help.

Have you tried Epson's FAQ for the Color 3000?

They also had one page saying
Q: What do I need to do to print with my Stylus printer on a LocalTalk or EtherTalk network?
A:  To use the printer on a LocalTalk network, install the optional LocalTalk Interface (C823121). For EtherTalk install the optional Ethernet Interface (C823461). Set the AppleTalk/Network Control Panel to Modem/Printer port (LocalTalk with older OS versions) for the LocalTalk interface and Ethernet/EtherTalk for the Ethernet interface. Enable AppleTalk in the Chooser and run the Epson Namer utility and give the printer a unique name to easily identify the printer on the LocalTalk network.

And here is a pdf with special instructions for using the parallel to USB  adapter.

And even though you probably know this... the bottom ram needs to be LOW profile.

According to OWC's tech support pages
PC-133 and PC-100 memory modules are backwards compatible. You can use a PC-133 memory module in a system designed to be used with PC-66 without any issues. Higher speed memory modules always default to the highest CAS latency rating at slower speeds.

For example, a PC-133 CL3 (3-2-2) chip will run at either PC-100 or PC-66, CL2 (2-2-2) operation.

If you purchase a PC-100 memory module and receive a substitute PC-133 module, it is a comparable substitution without any compromise or speed degradation from a native PC-100 part.

Occasionally, Apple System Profiler will incorrectly report the memory as slower, or 3-2-2 memory, when it is actually programmed correctly for the backwards compatibility. Most notably this can occur with Apple Power Macintosh G4 "AGP" "Sawtooth" logic boards, and also Apple Power Macintosh G4 "Cube" systems. Rest assured, if you perform a moving memory test using Gauge Pro (included here in the OWC Tech Center in the Newer Technology downloads), you will see that there is no speed degradation using this memory. Simply put. the memory controller on the system’s logic board is not programmed to recognize PC-133 memory modules properly - they will function perfectly, just report an incorrect speed.

So, YES.

OWC's MacBook Pro Core 2 Duo upgrade page.  The MBP's come with 2G ram, so you will have to replace one or both sticks to upgrade.

If you have ANY questions, Eric at ext 110 has always been a great help.  He has answered all I've thrown at him, plus some.  And he has stopped me from a dumb mistake or two.  OWC has been around for some time, and many here will agree they are most helpful and trustworthy.  And they will give you a REBATE-though not much- on the stock ram and hard drive.

Before you order, you may want to check out NYU's Online Store  You could qualify for the educational discount.

I found 2G ram sufficient until I tried to run Parallels, along with 3 or 4 other programs.  So I jumped to 3.  2 was plenty until I threw everything at it at once.

One consideration I found important was the speed of the hard drive.  Stock is 4200 or 5400 rpm, some built to order have a 7200, but then I tend to have 7-10 applications open at once, and most are Adobe products.  The faster the better.

I bought mine at Macconnection.  Free shipping and the rebates were better when I was shopping.

2007 / Firmware update

And that is why I called my "messed up his last upgrade, through no fault of his own, but he didn't know to disconnect ALL non essential peripherals" friend and told him not to do it.

You must wait for the bong, and let it do it's thing, according to the directions.

About this update
If you are updating a portable Mac, make sure that your AC adapter is plugged in. The Firmware Updater application will not run unless the computer is connected to AC power.
Locate the appropriate update for your Macintosh model, and download it to your computer by clicking the update's title, then clicking on the file size indicator in download details or at the bottom of the page.....
Some USB and FireWire devices may prevent firmware updates from installing correctly. If you are having trouble installing an update try disconnecting non-essential devices and use only an Apple keyboard, mouse, and display.

MacBook Pro
Intel iMac
Mac Pro
Despite reading problems on other boards, I applied the update with NO problems.

Well, I got too impatient waiting for the iWork link to load. I was wanting to see if it said Pages would now open an AW6 file. dntknw.gif
From Apple's iWorks Compatibilty Page
Pages ’08 also opens AppleWorks word processing documents, as well as files saved in Rich Text Format (RTF). It imports a wide assortment of audio (AAC, AIFF, and MP3), image (EPS, JPEG, PNG, PDF, PSD), video (MOV), and other media types.
