    iChat going braindead

    Does anyone else have this problem? I'll be using iChat and after a random amount of time I'll receive no more IMs from people. sometimes I'll suddenly get a barrage of IMs all at once, usually after the other person has already logged off thinking I was being unresponsive. Usually...

    killing hanging startup processes

    my powerbook had some disk corruption which was causing the thing to hang at "Starting Network" and "Starting Appletalk" during bootup. being a NetBSD person, I frustratingly hit ctrl+c which cancels/quits/stops running jobs in unix. I expected nothing since this doesn't work when OSX is...

    appleshare printers in 10.1.3

    I don't know if this ever worked, but in OSX 10.1.3 i can't see any appletalk printers shared off of non appleshare/ip macs. i.e., any older mac that uses straight appletalk to share a printer, that printer doesn't appear for me. I do, however, see the mac itself just fine in the . . ...

    Converting text files from windows to unix (OSX) and back

    If you use BBEdit this isn't a big deal, but I use pico a lot for quick edits of files, and a lot of our developers use Windows to edit the files, so the linebreaks are different, which causes pico (or any Unix editor) to open the file all on one line with no line breaks. A quick, one line...

    Cheap Alternative To PGPDisk

    Well, one of the most frustrating things about switching OS's is to find a PGPDisk-like utility. PGPDisk, for those who don't know, is a program that creates an encrypred disk image that one can mount as a Volume and access as one would any disk. The filesystem on the volume is encrypted and...

    folders in the dock

    I'd swear I could do this in the Public Beta, and I don't remember trying it in 10.0.x, but I'm on 10.1 and I want to place a folder that contains aliases on the dock so I can do the click-and-hold to get a sorta-emulated "apple menu" effect of having a pop-up applications list. However, no...

    mount SMB/CIFS shares from the termnial/on boot

    Annoyed at the lack of ability to browse for SMB servers/shares, I just started playing around. I did a "locate smb" from the terminal and was greeted with a program called "mount_smbfs" From the manpage (man mount_smbfs): "mount_smbfs - mounts a shared resource from an SMB file server...

    10.1 "many networks" support

    Okay, so I upgraded to 10.1 thrilled that I could, without third party utilities, access my Windows and Linux SAMBA boxes. I also was happy that I'd be able to access legacy Appletalk shares (i.e. Win NT 4). However, when I clicked "Go" and chose to connect to a network share, I was greeted...

    Pathetic Pismo Problems

    So I have this Pismo (PowerBook G3/Firewire) at 500MHz with 256M of RAM (original Apple RAM) and an IBM Travelstar 20G drive and an Airport card and a DVD-ROM. The only component not from Apple is the IBM Travelstar. Under 9.2.1 the Pismo runs poifect. No problems what so ever. But OSX...

    OSX apps constantly crash, quits to login screen

    Hello, I was thrilled to get my hands on a Pismo, as I had a Wallstreet and OSX was painfully slow on the Wallstreet. I installed OSX on my Pismo and it's been nothing but trouble. First off, every app crashes when I launch it. I'm talking IE, OmniWeb, System Preferences, Terminal...

    How do I uninstall .pkg files?

    In OSX Server, if you went to /System/Library/Receipts there was a .pkg file that corresponded to the .pkgs you installed. Double-clicking these files, otherwise known as receipts, the Installer.app would open and prompt to remove the package. Under OSX Final, the installer.app opens and tries...

    Using NetInfo like a hosts file

    I've been searching the net now since installing OSX Final b/c for a way to use my hosts file in my /etc folder like I do under Linux for developing websites (i.e. in the hosts file I create "127.0.0.1 somesite.me" and then use apache and http headers so that somesite.me in a browser returns a...
