considering buying a Macintosh to replace PC. The Mac links appear to have disappeared on the new forum.
Any suggestions or links to sites would be appreciated on the following:

1. Newsserver: currently using GigaNews. Presume this works on Mac seamlessly?

2. Software Download: currently using Newsreactor. What works best on Mac?

3. Newsgroup: ABMS. No issues on Mac, I assume.

4. Repair: MacPar?

5. Decoding: currently use FLAC. What Mac software is recommended for audio and dvd files?

6. Burning software: Again, what Mac software works best for burning cdr audio and/or dvd?


any suggestions would be appreciated?

How to turn DVD decrypter split filer into one .iso file:

open "terminal" (it's in your "utilities" folder)
type cd nameofdirectory (this switches you to the directory where the split files are located)
type cd nameoffolder (this switches you to the folder the files are in)
type cat nameoffile.I0* > nameoffile.iso (e.g. bruceconcert.I0* > bruceconcert.iso)
and after a while you will have an .iso file

Do you ever dream of the world like I do?

Can anyone a good MAC OS X programme to create rar files? Preferably freeware.

Regarding MACPar deluxe: somehow I always end up wit the Dutch version, no matter where I download from (even trying the link above). It makes things a bit more complicated than necessary. Thus, can anyone point me to an English version?

Thanks

I'm a mac newbie blush

I have a question: what software do you use to print CD/DVD covers? When I had my old PC I worked with CoverXP and UndercoverXP, but there isn't a mac version of this software.

Thanks in advance,

Rosa

Another question from a Mac newbie blush : I want to rip an original boot and upload it to Jungleland. Is Max the best program to rip CDs (brianr said that it's similar to EAC)? If I rip a boot with Max and upload/post it, am I doing something wrong?

TIA,

Rosa
