How to get an iSight on a MacPro?

Can a MacPro have an iSight camera? As a desktop computer it only can use an external monitor, and Apple's external monitors don't have iSight built in. The clincher is that Apple doesn't sell iSight cameras any more, separate from the ones built-in to MacBooks. So how can a MacPro connect to an iSight?

Nested folder file size in OSX

I use OSX Tiger, and I want (ideally) to see a sorted list (by size) of all files in a folder, including all files in nested folders. Right now, using the Finder, I can only sort-by-size for files in the same level of a folder. But I want to see a sorted list of all of them on or below that level in the hierarchy. Any tips or shareware to help? [more inside]

When will Apple stop supporting OS9?

As a longtime Mac user, I still depend on several OS9 applications for my work. I've heard, though, that Apple's new Macs will stop supporting OS9, which is bad news for me. My goal is to buy the last PowerBook that rolls off the assembly line that still supports OS9 - this way, my OS9-friendly Mac will last as long as possible. My question: can anyone tell me when Apple is making the changeover to OS9-less Macs?
