Hi guys, my first post. Here's the low-down...
I just got my first Apple machine the other day, a G4 iBook, I think it's great. Having used FreeBSD as a desktop OS for the last 4 years I didn't find any obstacles in making the "switch". Only one really small thing that's kind of annoying:
For those of you familiar with X11 and BitchX, one of the nicest thing about the console based irc client is the ability to switch between channels by using a combination of Alt+#keys (ie. Alt+1 = channel 1, Alt+2 = channel2 etc..). Using the native terminal in OSX I ssh'd to my remote shell and fired up the client. The problem is, when I do attempt these key combinations it ends up highlighting and/or starting programs from the OSX pulldown menu. I've gone through the window->keyboard settings and found nothing useful in terms of remapping the keys.
While I know this is a really isolated and specific question.. I thought maybe someone had found a solution.. and please don't say "use Snak/Ircle/etc. etc." :P
Thanks in advance!
