not very elegant, i know...

do you read your mail online or offline? Apple Mail also has a very good trainable spam filter... of course if you can avoid having to download all the crap to your computer in the first place, even better... if you have to keep the address, probably the best you can do is to have the mail directed ...

lots of USB ports (macs tend to be firewire, PCs tend to be USB, the advantage of either is small and oft argued) this is true if you are talking about firewire 400, however firewire 800 is a lot faster... also good to remember that if you mix fw 400 and 800 devices on the same fw bus, the 800 devi...

bad idea...

i love being able to hit the general forum and do a quick skim of the active topics and pick and choose... encourages the art of subject titles too...

it would be absolutely hideous having dozens of sub-forums to navigate... i just wouldn't do it...

Bitstream 3x is pretty bulletproof. 32 knobs, 8 sliders, x-fader - it's a bit dinky but it works ribbon controller -love it X-Y joystick - not the best feature, don't use it myself, don't like the feel. Not too expensive either i haven't actually used one of these, but i think CME owns it now? i'm ...

fishmonkey: What have you learned about potentially getting the xgaming kits to control Live? It wasn't clear from their site exactly what type of data these controllers can output other than keystrokes. And that said PC only, I believe.
