    trouble connecting to network from sleep after installing latest security update

    Interesting, I think I might have the same problem, just haven't made the connection with the security update yet. After my MacBook Pro goes to sleep I can't connect to my network. Have to restart every time and then it's not a problem, the connection gets established automatically.

    "Quion: Fantastic work; if this doesn't land you a job, I don't know what will. " I'll second that, it's great work! Glad you've decided to post the link to Beta 2, this should clear up some confusion and will make it clear what you are trying to accomplish.

    My project is looking for Beta testers

    SystemError51 e-mailed me the link to his beta site. This cleared up all the confusion and questions I had about the tread here and his statements and claims. I do believe the site is like nothing I've seen before... it's just like working in OS X.... very close to logging on to a MAC via remote...

    My project is looking for Beta testers

    Same here... I'm not really getting it yet, guess I will have to spend more time on the site to take a closer look. The similarity to the Apple site is confusing me a bit. I have to disagree with you when it comes to your views on trademark/copyright infringement. Being in business for 20+ years...

    MacStyles...are you using the vinyl decal?What's your style?

    I will update, no problem. I've ordered a few decals, so I might be tempted to switch styles prior to it fading or wearing off.

    MacStyles...are you using the vinyl decal?What's your style?

    Just a quick update to report the small bubbles have disappeared after 4, 5 days. Looks much better now and I'm quite happy with the decal.

    MacStyles...are you using the vinyl decal?What's your style?

    I had a problem with small black spots developing on the surface of my McBook Pro. The area affected was mostly below the keyboard and on the left and right of the trackpad (where my palms are resting). At first I thought it's just dirt but soon realized it's not reparable and must be caused by...

    memory upgrade questions

    You were right! Received my RAM upgrade today and its a big difference... very nice! I was a bit nervous about swapping the RAM myself, but it couldn't have been easier. Easy to take out the old RAM, easy to install the new RAM. Booted back up and the MacBook recognized the 2GB and was running...

    memory upgrade questions

    Thanks ora, found a Canadian supplier for crucial and will order today, should have it by Easter weekend then... I'm using parallels from time to time and more speed would be great. I'm really happy with the MacBook and assume I'll have it for a long time to come (at least as a secondary...

    MacBook Pro RAM

    This is really interesting info... wasn't aware of that. So if I'm running MS Office Word for the Mac and it's a PowerPC app, more RAM would help speed things up?

    memory upgrade questions

    Thinking of upgrading memory from 1 to 2 GB. How noticeable is the improvement? Is it worth while in your opinion? What should I watch for when buying memory? Any thoughts on this offer? http://store.fastmac.com/product_info.php?cPath=9_29&products_id=177 thx!

    Black frame around clicked icons / other elements

    Happened to me a few weeks ago... freaked me right out, so I did a quick search here on the forum...and yes, it's just what Satcomer describes above. Easy fix, but worrisome first time it happens ;-)

    video from iPhoto to iMovie

    Hello Ragnes; That should be very straight forward... open bot apps: iMovie and iPhoto and drag and drop the file either into the timeline below the preview pane or to the right of it onto one of the square placeholders. From there to the timeline. Now you can start editing and adding music...

    What will happen when I update to Leopard?

    Oh really? Never thought of that... I guess by keeping a close eye on the forum here I'll find out soon enough when it's safe to make the switch to Leopard. When can one expect to see 10.5.3.? Are we talking weeks, months? Clean install sounds good to me... I think I will give it a try when...
