Is there a way to migrate everything over to a new mac, without having to re-downalod everything and reset it how I like?

Copy these folders and items to the same locations on the new Mac.
The last two contain your settings and saved files, it is good to backup these two folders from time to time
Then download and run the latest installer for Accordance.
Please note that if you are on Lion you may run into permissions issues when you copy folders from another Mac. Also, to open the user/Library you will need to use the Go menu and press option in order to access that folder.
Therefore it's often easier simply to install Accordance 9 or 10 and use Easy Install to redownload everything to the new Mac.

P.S. I, too, have an old (nearly antique) PowerMac G5. It was manufactured in March of 2005, refurbished, and then purchased by me off eBay in June of 2007. Still going strong but now three OSs behind my MacBook Pro (2008 unibody) which is now my main machine. I hope to replace it with a Mac mini with the next release, whenever that might be. It's been 427 days since the last new machine. My laptop will continue to me my main computer.
