    Is Diskwarrior still the best for optimizing?

    Mea Culpa :( didn't spot the subtle underlining - hope to thank fully later, assiuming the drive survives :D

    Is Diskwarrior still the best for optimizing?

    Just check out the picture of "Doctor" Norton on the box (Ok, of a few years ago) and you can easily see he has no lenses in his glasses, showing him to be a complete charlatan, shurely!? So no one's got a spare Speed Disk Profile optimised for OS X then? (but machine now significantly faster...

    Is Diskwarrior still the best for optimizing?

    That's what i was doing at the weekend and pondering... what would a "profile specifically made for OS X" look like? Any clues? (or preferably a link to download one :D) Hmmm - i'm on 6.0.3 (and 10.1.5/9.2.2) and it does fall over occasionally but doesn't seem to kill my drive (so far!) - i...

    function keys checkbox

    dcharris was right (thanks!) it is in the "Function Keys..." panel not, as the only current help on apple.com says in the "Options...". This all applies to my PowerBook G4 running OS9.2.2 and OS X 10.1.2 but possibly others too - hope it's of help to someone. To get "normal" function keys...

    Mail.app turned into a Folder

    function keys checkbox

    I want to use my function keys as normal and use the Fn modifier key to access brightness, volume and media eject. I use OSX now but found an Apple technote describing the checkbox (in OS9) to "Make F1 through F12 the primary function keys" so i rebooted in 9.2.2, went to Control...

    Mail.app turned into a Folder

    I did the same (ended up with one broken copy of mail in Applications and the un-updated version left in applications/Internet). I'm not using Mail for my main mail so i didn't sort it out for ages and then tried to copy (or move :rolleyes: ) the new files over the old ones (using the Finder...

    startup files

    That was my thought (rummaging in /System/Library/StartupItems/ but i can't seem to get anything to work. I've made a dir called 'mysql' with 2 files in thus: -r--r--r-- 1 root wheel 195 Nov 25 18:18 StartupParameters.plist -rwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 93 Nov 25 18:21 mysql the mysql...
