Nobody Know the Panther Like Andy Ihnatko
If you're a Mac user, get ready to learn a lot and have a really good time doing it. Developed in cooperation with Apple Computer, this guide to Mac OS X Panther is loaded with real-world tips and techniques for making the most of this superior operating system-and occasionally, for making scrambled eggs. Behind it all is Andy Ihnatko, that Macintosh icon whose one-of-a-kind personality makes this book not only amazingly informative, but a whole lot of fun to read.Fully illustrated with sidebars, notes, and tips that fill in the blanks.Covers set-up, customization, workarounds, hardware and software add-ons, troubleshooting, and more.Answers those pesky questions from your Aunt Estelle.More surprises inside!"I'll tell you a secret....If you don't own this book, you're probably standing in the aisle at the bookstore right now, trying to decide if it's worth the money. Good for you. Can't be too careful with a dollar these days.So here's a hint. If you want to learn how to use Unix's 'cron' command to adjust the scheduling of automated system maintenance tasks or perform scripts and functions...you're going to be disappointed. But if you've just acquired your first Macintosh, or you've just upgraded to Panther, or if you've been using Panther for a while and realized that you're just not exploiting if fully, well you're precisely the person for whom i wrote this book.And, if you just woke up this morning thinking that you could do better with a Mac than Windows...oooh, baby, let me show you Paris the way no one's ever shown you Paris!"
