OT: Mac Question

How do I tell if my Mac is Intel or PPC? I inherited one at work and Adobe Flash has different installers for each.

Run this on Firefox's location bar:
javascript:alert(navigator.userAgent)

The "navigator.userAgent" gives a detailed description of the platform, including whether it's PPC or Intel I think. :-)

Or to save unneccesesary loading (installing...) of applications, just click on the Apple icon on the top left of the screen, and select 'About This Mac'.

Or you can just download Flash from the Adobe site. It will know what you have and install the right one.
