    Open Transport & Remote Access

    I'm nowhere *NEAR* the geek I wish I was (and which others who know me think I am). Therefore, this may sound stupid, but...With OS X, is Open Transport/PPP still used/needed? How about Remote Access (to connect to Earthlink)? Many TIA.

    iDisk

    You (and everyone else who tried to help me) are a *genius* (or else I just need a brain upgrade)! Thank you, one and all! :)

    iDisk

    What am I doing wrong? I've ordered OS X v. 10.1, and it should be in my hands by tomorrow. In eager anticipation, I visited Apple's web-site & set up an iDisk/iDisk account. Then, I entered my password. This took me to the Open your iDisk' page. Whether I click on the iDisk button in the...

    Mac OS X v. 10.1

    Ummm...nope. Not for me. Apple must hate me. Went to Go--->Apple - iTools - iDisk, which brought me to the iTools page; clicked on Open My iDisk (or whatever)...no dice, even after I entered my password.

    Mac OS X v. 10.1

    1.) apple.com/idisk - CHECK 2.) Log in - NOPE! Got no prompt to log in; 3.) Clicked on iDisk icon in the upper right just for the heck of it. 4.) Saw my login name but didn't/couldn't mount my iDisk, even after entering password HERE. Back to the drawing board.

    Mac OS X v. 10.1

    Well, after all was said and done, I finally took the plunge this afternoon. I've ordered Mac OS X v. 10.1. It should be in my hands 10/9. In anticipation of this, I went to the Apple site & set up an iTools/iDisk account. At that time, somehow, somewhere. I downloaded the iTools Installer and...

    Mac OS X v. 10.1

    >On the subject of price, are you in college or know someone who is? If so >Apple will cut the price down to I beleive $70 for students. Unfortunately, I'm well beyond the usual 'in college' age. $70 sounds *really* nice. Of course, I suppose I shouldn't complain too loudly. The $140 or so...

    Mac OS X v. 10.1

    Assuming I have the $130 for OS X, v 10.1 (and the $12 s/h charge, according to MacConnection's website), is there any really good reason I should upgrade my system from 9.0.4 at this time (other than to help the recession economy)? Thanks.

    partition size suggestions

    I'm on an iMac DV Special Edition/400 MHz. I've set up my hard drive partitions in the following way: 4.25 GB = Mac OS 9.0.4 (just the OS) 4.25 GB = Applications (basically, everything except OS 9.0.4) 4.25 GB = OS X (future installation of OS X) Comments are welcome.

    Why would someone not upgrade?

    I've got pieces of OS X Beta still on my iMac DV SE/400 & when I try to delete them, an error message says 'OS X Beta cannot be put in the Trash' or some such thing. I just got finished formatting my hard drive because of this. If there's no way to remove the (now completely empty and inactive)...

    Webshots & random desktops at start-up

    Thanks, roger. Looks like quite a few hoops to jump through to randomize. Maybe I'll just change the desktop picture manually, unless there's an easier way. Again, thanks for your reply.

    Is it possible to use Webshots or Appearance to select a random desktop picture at start-up? Thanks.:)

    X Beta to X

    Previously, I had OS X Beta on my iMac DV Special Edition/400 MHz. Since I didn't use it all that often, I recently tried to delete it, following the instructions in Mac Addict magazine. However, there were some parts of he Beta which refused to be deleted, saying stuff like 'OS X cannot be put...
