    Spinning pizza wheel ...

    You may be on to something here DeltaMac, except that the hard drive was replaced in 2014 with a larger one. That said, I will look into replacing the current hard drive. Many thanks.

    Spinning pizza wheel ...

    I recently had to re-install El Capitan onto my 2009 MacBook Pro due to a 'frozen screen'. No problems getting the OS installed, however, now the laptop is so slow! I am constantly seeing the spinning pizza wheel and some programmes (like Pages) seem to take an eternity to load. I have used...

    Firewire 400 to USB adapter

    DeltaMac - my 2012 Mac mini comes with a Firewire 800 port. So I have purchased a Firewire 400 to Firewire 800 adapter and will see how that works.

    Firewire 400 to USB adapter

    I want to connect my old camera with a Firewire 400 connector to my new(ish) Mac mini. Does anyone know if you can a Firewire 400 connector to 2.0 USB adapter? If not, can I get a Firewire to a Thunderbolt adapter? My Mac mini is a late 2012 model. Thank you.

    Safari Version 11.0.3 (11604.5.6.1.1) This is occurring on my 2009 MacBook Pro (see Signature below for details). Safari restarts and reopens the page that's crashed (although if it is a YouTube video, the video has to restart from the beginning). I am sure it is an easy fix, but I don't...

    I don't click on links in an email.

    Phishing Emails ...

    Thanks Cheryl. Actually the 'unsubscribe' links are also bogus and will result in a can of worms if clicked on.

    Phishing Emails ...

    I know Bob's Place is mainly for light stuff but I didn't know where else to ask this question. I am getting up to 20 phishing emails a day from China. I know they are from China because if I hover the mouse over one of the bogus links in the email I can see that if I clicked on the link I...

    How Do Alter Mail Functions In An Iphone

    Welsh is a difficult language to learn. I only the know the basics, but road signs are easy to read if you are used to them and see them every day. And don't forget Wales' longest village name: Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch.

    How Do Alter Mail Functions In An Iphone

    Diolch yn fawr DeltaMac (Welsh for thank you). I hadn't thought to go to Mail in Settings. I was trying to change things in Mail itself.
