No it doesn't! You are not allowed to hold world records. It says it somewhere in a manual I read...


FragTek is not allowed to hold any World Record of any kind what so ever at anytime until UGP approves it.

There see...I told you I read it somewhere...I even quoted it! LoL

No you can't. That I am aware of anyway...I wouldn't with some of the heat issues anyway.

so how do you have a score any better than anyone else. OS tweaks?

Probably OS Tweaks and right after a very clean nothing else install but OS X with all the extras gone and using a Firewire HD as well for the testing.

What does disabling Dashboard do? And how do you disable it? I never knew you could. I am still new to Mac alittle still.

I wish I could find an absolute full tweak guide for OS X. I mean I want to strip it down and delete everything that is not needed and free up space and resources.

Download a little app called 'OnyX' very handy :)

I have that. I am sure there is still more that can be removed.

There is a lot of little files all over that are not needed. Like all the scripts for modems. A lot of it adds up...I just haven't looked into it all that much yet.
