Is the Mini audio out equivalent to iBook audio out?

Discussion in 'Apple' started by hoarse with no name, May 29, 2005.

  1. My CD player broke years ago and so I hooked up my 2001 dual USB iBook
    to my receiver as an emergency measure. It worked out so well that I
    never bought a new CD player. I am thinking of buying a Mini and want to
    make sure that I can use it in the same way, and hopefully with the same
    cables. Is the audio output from the Mini's audio jack the equivalent to
    my old iBook's and will it use the same cables?

    The Mini has an audio line out/headphone out - it will work the same.

    Using Thunderbird here. I can see how to create a junkfile for private
    email, but have no idea how to do similar for newgroups.

    Any help appreciated.

  6. Have you looked at Tools->Message Filters... ?

    Yep. And I've just upgraded to the latest version to see if that helped,
    but still no joy.

    The most amazing thing is that entering "killfile" into Thunderbird help
    reveals no matches whatsoever.

    I really think I must look for another product, for I fear they have
    lost the plot in terms of what _I_ wish to do.

  8. Having checked and looked at Google it appears this is for e-mail only,
    less than usefly IMHO. Apologies for sending you on a wild goose chase.

    I've not had the need to use a killfile on a newsreader so it hasn't
    ocurred to me that this doesn't work. As you say it was suggested for
    1.0 but has clearly slipped :(

    I too have been looking for a newsreader to replace Thunderbird having
    got fed up with it's poor handling of SPAM (how many times do I have to
    mark as junk a meessage with Penis Extension in the title before it
    get's the idea I want to filter those messages?) and gone back to which handles spam extraordinarily well. I haven't found
    anything on OSX that can replace Firefox fore news though. Not without
    spending money. I did use HogWasher a year ago before a stint on the
    darkside. Perhaps I can find my registration key.

    I've also got fed up with Firefox looping and taking all my CPU time so
    am back with Safari, but that's another story.

    No problem. Thanks for trying.
    My first newsreader 10 years ago (a Windows one, unfortunately now dead)
    had such a facility, but I didn't really need the filters until the
    spammers went berserk.
    It's not just the poor handling of spam which gets me. The so-called
    offline facility of Thunderbird is next to useless to me, as it only
    downloads message headers rather than the full text. Even 10 years ago
    on a dial up line, I found it cheaper to download the lot rather than
    selecting which ones I wanted the full text for and going online again.
    Yep. When I was running Mozilla on a 64 bit Alpha, it would clock up 100
    I/Os a second, though I've no idea why.

  10. I see little spam, the guys that run seem to have that
    under control.
    I found offline very hit and miss. POP is fine. IMAP (.Mac) unusable and news
    Still better than IE on windows though.

    I've just switched to HogWasher. It has a slightly quirky interface but can
    be tweaked.

    Yes, they do indeed, though unfortunately I fell victim to whatever
    virus it was (Code Red? - around that time slot anyway) which was
    harvesting email addresses from newsgroups.

    I myself use Safari with JS disabled, and keep FireFox with JS enabled
    _only_ for the sites where I need it - and then from a non-admin account.
