Ever wanted to connect one mac to another for the purpose of transfering contents? With a mac all you need to do is hold down the T key while it is booting up to be able to to use it as a hard drive. A hard drive icon will float around the screen, and you can just attatch it to another Mac the same way you would an external hard drive.

I find this very useful when editing on an airplane with my powerbook, and then connecting my Powerbook to my Power Mac to do transfer assets or finish the job.

This eliminates any relinking issues that can arise.

My Powerbook is three years old and is still a very useful machine, but does not encode nearly as fast as current models. I did a test where I encoded a project, and it took an hour and 22 minutes, then set my Powerbook to be a hard drive, opened the project same project file off of my Powerbook, with a newer Powerbook and the compression took only 19 minutes.
