Link. CTX130539 – Access Gateway Plug-in for Mac OS X (Version 2.1.3).
This was quite hard to find. By one path I could download without registering, by another I had to create a fake company. Got same buggy plug-in either way. Citrix feels like a dying company.
Link. From 2006(!) but still excellent. Book layout hasn’t changed very much. Fills in Apple’s missing documentation on turning a picture into page background.
Link. I didn’t know this: “The more you use Dictation, the better it understands you. Dictation learns the characteristics of your voice and adapts to your accent.”
Link. TM has always supported disk rotation, though until ML it didn’t support disk encryption (important for offsite backup). In ML TM also supports multi-volume rotation simultaneous backup.
Link. LTE is a mess. Lots to learn.
Link. “burn a DVD or build a bootable drive from Mac OS X Lion or OS X Mountain Lion Installation program.”
Link. Upload speed issue was a light bulb for me!
Link. Makes it far more useful. Simple.
Link. Geeky! Tweaking XML files in /Library/Filters. Get Adobe Acrobat like export options.
Link. Not sure how bad this really is. I’m not in a rush to disable yet.
Link. Complicated hacks! Apple engineers worked hard but what an odd result.
Link. Somehow this was relevant to this Macintouch post about recovering from a disastrous Apple iPhoto/MobileMe bugged that can destroy users iPhoto Library, probably a permissions bug:
“vsdbutil -d “/Volumes/Jeff’s HD TM Backup”
Once I did that, I could complete the restore using Time Machine.
… I imported the photos I took since June 12, rearranged the recent events (again), and all seems well. Thankfully, the From MobileMe folder is gone, and all the events I expected to see are back!
Now I suspect the core problem, something inside the library that has incorrect permissions, is still present. I’m not sure what to do so a future Time Machine restore (if needed) will work cleanly.”
Link. I’m experimenting with this approach. An encrypted disk image in a shared folder …
Link. It’s $40 now. Worth the money, except for how the change was made. I have 30 days to change vendors or accept Bombich’s poor choice.
Link. Good set of techniques.
Link. Flaw in fundamental OS X.
Link. Sucks that Apple can’t manage their certificate expiration better.
Link. No idea if this works. I might try it.
Link. And configuring iCal not to open when iCloud calendar updated. That’s dumb.
Link. Gratitude to the non Apple fixer
Link. Macintouch: “.. SOHO Organizer runs on the iMacs, and the standard Apple Address Book and iCal apps run on Lion and IOS 5 equipment with both sets of apps talking to each other. In other words, you only need to run the SOHO Organizer on the non-iCloud capable machines.
Also SOHO Organizer does not appear to support push notifications. That is, SOHO Organizer syncs on a time schedule rather than immediately after a change has occurred. However, the Lion laptop and the IOS 5 iPhone do communicate with push notifications. I have SOHO Organizer set to sync every 5 minutes, so when it syncs, then iCloud pushes out the change to the Lion laptop and my iPhone very quickly. I am still learning about SOHO Organizer but it seems to do the job.
Others have noted other methods of moving Snow Leopard machines to iCloud. I have not tried it, but for a small group of machines, fruux (https://fruux.com/) might work without having to buy an application. I would be interested if anyone has tried it.”
Not cheap! $100 individual, $180 family. Cheaper than replacing a machine though. Works on 10.5.8
Link. Old feature and I still don’t remember it.
Link. Be very wary of cheap alternatives. Also, modern power supplies are computers.
“If you’re interested in power supplies, please take a look at my other articles: tiny, cheap, dangerous: Inside a (fake) iPhone charger, where I disassemble a $2.79 iPhone charger and discover that it violates many safety rules; don’t buy one of these. Also take a look at Apple didn’t revolutionize power supplies; new transistors did which examines the history of switching power supplies…”
Link. Yuch. Dropbox should flush the cache more often, or make cache size an adjustable parameter.
