2 G5's computer craziness


i have 2 G5’s. one is new. they sit 5 feet apart, and both are hooked up to a large monitor that has dual inputs. they also are each hooked up to a second separate monitor.

so i have a firewire external drive that i plugged into the new machine and it shows up on the old machines desktop. i plug it into the old machine, and it shows up on the new machines desktop. very wacky. especially considering that the 2 computers are not even connected together. once i noticed this, i broke the network appletalk connection and even unplugged the new machine from the network.

still happending!

very very weird…



i had the 2 machines attached with a firewire, but i still don’t know why they were making the external appear on the opposite computer.
