I used a Dual just like yours at last job... drool. All I\'ve got now are the home Macs, a Mini and a couple of iBooks, plus a <blegh!> PC.

etc.


Thanks for the advice, esp about joining up with another project. Just out of curiosity, since I am a novice when it comes to understanding computer but am interested in learning more, can you (or anyone) explain cache and also resource share. What is cache and what is the difference between .1 or 3? [Edit] How do I set cache size? [/Edit] How would I set the resource share, what will that do?

Thanks

So probably the weirdest situation one could find themselves in is donating something of importance to a group doing great work and not really having a full grasp of what they\'re doing with that important thing. But since I know it\'s a good thing I don\'t care, I want the R@H folks to use my comp to its fullest potential. I don\'t know a lot about settings for my computer though. I have the second line of Mac G5\'s and run dual 2Ghz processors with 1.5Gb RAM, have just shy of 200Gb of available memory, and have no clue how to optimize this great program on my machine. I\'m running the latest OSX and am connected to a University LAN. If anyone can offer some advice as to how best to optimize performance for this project, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks,

Jonathan

[Edit] - just to clarify, the \'second line\' is meant to distinguish between the non-water cooled generation before my G5 and the dual-dual that came after - [/Edit]
