Look for its preferences file in /~Library/Preferences, and delete it, or use Pref Setter to edit it.

Using Pref Setter now, and am pretty lost in it. Which key should i edit for the chat window position?

Look for keyword "frame" and change the series of digits that represent the coordinates.

Make sure you quit Adium first.

(Adium was running, though. Not sure if that might affect anything.)

Is there a way to connect eSata devices to the macbook presently? Preferably to the firewire port through a converter.

If not, are there any equivalents which are available locally other than waiting for the Firmtek SeriTek/SpyderHUB?

1. Other than the obvious specs, has also Firewire 800, backlit keyboard.

2. depends what you use the MacBook for.

mbp unresponsive keyboard and trackpad

hi,

my mbp's keyboard and trackpad do not respond occasionally, i've tried to install the keyboard update but the installer tells me that my system does not need the update (OSX 10.5.2). may i know if there are alternate methods to resolve this issue or do i need to send the notebook back to apple?

thank you

Hi all

I would like to use my macbook to record in game video from my Wii and was wondering if anyone could recommend me a video capture tool like this one:

http://www.pinnaclesys.com/PublicSi...Video/Studio+Family/Video+Capture+for+Mac.htm

And, is there any freeware prog that allows me to convert various video formats like from mpeg4 to avi, wmv to avi on the mac?

Your replies are deeply appreciated! :D:D
Not sure about the capture, but I think iSquint is the conversion tool you might want.
