I acquired a secondhand Power Mac G4 Dual 867MHz MDD a few days ago, but it's been acting a little weird. [more inside]
I've got a directory filled with the digital photos I and friends have taken over some eight years. It's a disorganised mess with no coherent, standardised naming format. I'd like to: -remove duplicates -sort, rename or place in folders images based on EXIF data or content I'm on Mac OS X but could possibly gain access to a Windows box if necessary. Any ideas?

The power connector to my G4 Powerbook is almost dead. It only charges in one very specific position, and I have to twist it around for a few seconds to find the sweetspot (rotating it in situ). Nothing is loose and nothing is visibly wrong. I tried squeezing the metal sleeve slightly to make it more elliptical in the hope this would create a tighter connection, but it made no difference.

Am I bogging down my new iMac with software? I have a 20" Intel iMac with 512mb (adding another 1mb as soon as my Amazon rebate comes). I love it! This thing is so fast...starts up in about 10 seconds, responds quickly almost all the time. Once in a while it hesitates, I suppose due to a lot of programs open. [more inside]

My mother has an Acer LCD (model AL1715) hooked up to her Mac Mini. The warranty expired 3 days ago, and last night it woke up after being asleep for about 45 minutes with a black line across it - the image divided in such a way that the image has rolled - that is, the bottom is at the top and the top at the bottom, split not quite equal halves. Disconnecting and reconnecting don't work, powering off and back on don't work, changing the display mode on the mac doesn't work, and we can't find a reset button. Acer doesn't answer tech support phone calls (endless holds) or emails. Any ideas?

Anyone know where I can find a copy of the class action lawsuit filed against Apple this week claiming that iPods can cause permanent hearing loss? Electronic copy preferred.

I'm toying with the idea of getting a display to use with my 14" iBook (1.33 GHz, 768 MB RAM), mostly to watch movies on (VLC, fullscreen). Ideally, I'd like to do this while using the iBook's screen for other things (internet browsing, word processing, etc) (and on second thought, I may want to run VLC on the 14" screen and do other things on the larger display -- but that's probably irrelevant).

I have an old 12" G3 500 iBook. Someone has a 12" G4 800 iBook he's selling because the case where the battery goes in is cracked and the battery won't stay in. I'm wondering if the cases are identical and if I can buy his and slip it into my case. Possible? How would I find out?

I tried out Apple's Aperture for a month to see if I liked it and if it saved any time, but now that iPhoto 6 is out, I'd like to go back to iPhoto which runs loads faster on my iMac. This means I have about a month's worth of photos in Aperture I'd like to salvage in iPhoto. What I can't figure out is how to export photos from Aperture into iPhoto, instead of vice versa. Any tips?

I bought a 20" G5 iMAC two or three weeks ago, and now Apple has just released the new Intel based iMACs for the same price. They annoyingly brag that they're 3 times as fast. Is it worth it for me to try to return it and get one of the newer models?

I have two identical PowerMac G5s and a single copy of Mac OS X Server. One is a file server for small network. The other exists in case something happens to the first one.

Having read this prior question, I'd like to pose something similar in the hope that six months of iSync 2.1 experience will better inform the answer.

Bonus points for T-Mobile affiliation.
