Restore from ASR image and Pace
Just wondering whether anybody knows if a software restore using an ASR image (clone) of my previously-working, and authorized system, will maintain my PACE registration. I know it’s not a big deal to just request a new one, but I already have to bug c74 for another response in the next day or two, as a result of a Boot Camp Linux dual-boot gone wrong, and it’s looking like I’m going to be wiping my main work machine again as well… They’re really gonna start to wonder about me! (While I’m really starting to wonder about computers…)

Well, it looks like I pooched the ASR clone anyway. I did the restore (though to a new HD, just to be safe!), and the bloody thing wouldn’t boot. Tried manually blessing and so on, but no joy. Oh well. I’m thinking I *might* just do an erase and install on the new drive today… If I’m feeling extra patient. I want to try having to totally separate audio systems on my G5, just to see. I’ve noticed with this last erase and install that, as I got all my daily crap and business apps on there (stuff for maintining my website, and so on), overall performance seemed to drop. Very strange. There are no particularly suspicious looking processes running, but I’m sure this thing ran much better for music stuff before I put all the graphics/web design stuff on. I don’t know if there’s an actual conflict somewhere, or if it’s just a bloated filesystem, or what. But even if it’s just suspicion, I’d like to at least try a totally dedicated audio boot. Does anybody have any concrete experiences to share on this subject? On whether to keep a dedicated audio system — not just an account, but a dedicated boot? It was a no-brainer in OS 9, but I’ve always suspected it was just superstition in OS X.

The triple-boot thing shouldn’t really be a problem. In this case I needed to go from an OS X + ubuntu machine to an OS X + XP machine (I don’t have enough HD space for all three, IMO). The problem was getting XP to install on the volume which had previously been ubuntu’s root — the XP installer seemed to gag at the fact that the first partition on the drive was the Linux boot space (200 MB). I got the volume reformatted to FAT32, and the XP installer/boot camp recognized it, but after the initial “copying files” and the reboot, it just stopped, complaining that there was no bootable volume. For the OS X + ubuntu I was using rEFIt, which is a great little boot-loader, and there are articles on using it with triple-boot systems. Unfortunately, I’m back to XP and OS X only… Boring, but I’ve got work to do!

I’ve reformatted drives, and my MaxMSP auth “survived”.

yeah, I’d assume the auth checks something about the hardware — often MAC address. So the new powerbook wouldn’t fit the picture. It’s strange because I remember waaaay back that my Max auth seemed to survive just about anything — including a reformat. But in recent versions, it’s been consistently killed by reformatting. Dunno… ??
Not a big deal, I suppose. A bit of a hassle, though. I may have to get an iLok key. But then it’s more usb ports… yuk.

Cycling is extremely supportive of providing new authorizations when
I recently went looking for USB hubs. I wasn’t terribly impressed by
