    TIP: external drive error type -36

    Hi there: I was having trouble copying data to a hard drive. The drive was a LaCie Porsche external 250 GB. It wouldn't be able to copy files over about 128 kb, and the finder would give me errors of type -36. Peculiarly, copying from the command line worked, though. I was rather...

    Safari helper apps

    Where does Safari store settings for helper apps? I ask because I've been checking my Vonage voicemail in that browser for the past couple of years, and now all of a sudden, when I download a voicemail message, it's using iTunes to playback the file, which is supremely annoying, since it adds...

    SSH: where is my RSA key?

    Hi there. I have encountered a web host that is requiring me to store MY RSA key on their server in order to log in via SSH. How do I generate this? Where is it stored on OS X?

    I won't duplicate the others people have mentioned; theyv are good, but if you want a fun Mac experience, try Burning Monkey Solitaire from Freeverse.

    Casino games for OS X...

    Look here: If you want slots, specifically, buy "Slots from Bally Gaming" or "Slots II" from Masque Publishing. The Hoyle games are good, but they are not native in OS X (they run under Classic).

    Apache + mod_rendezvous + virtual hosts?

    Hi there. I just installed the mod_rendezvous module for Apache, and it works fine. However, I have a bunch of local virtual hosts on that machine, which are called "", which I use to develop Web projects. Is there a way I can get those to also be visible on rendezvous?

    Want to switch back to Eudora from Mail

    Hi there. I decided to make the jump to Mail from Eudora about two months ago, since Eudora's OS X support was iffy. Now, two months later, I just can't stand Mail anymore. It's got to be the most inefficiently coded program on my computer; it makes me feel like I'm using my old 6100 or...

    Jaguar locks up when network-attached computer sleeps

    Hey all. Sorry about the long subject line, but that's the only way to describe this problem, which is infuriating. I constantly go back and forth between two machines sitting in front of me: a Titanium and a desktop G4. I check email on my laptop, and always keep it running, but...

    Jaguar & OS 9 network connection failing

    Drivers for what? both of these machines have the latest patches installed and so forth, as did my friend's laptop. Je crois que quelque chose a été perdu dans la traduction; il n y a pas un modem ici. L'attache est directe entre les deux ordinateurs. Anyone else got a clue as to what...

    Jaguar & OS 9 network connection failing

    Hi there. OK, so I occasionally have to go over to my girlfriend's house and directly hook up to her G4 using an ethernet crossover cable to get files, because we do work together sometimes and she is on a modem. Before I upgraded to Jaguar, it worked fine...just give both machines dummy...

    All wireless all the time

    Oh come on...I'm a luddite because I don't want a speech-controlled computer? OK...I had to bite: First, I notice you ignored my comments about noise. I STILL don't want to be sitting in an office full of people talking to their computers. How obnoxious. I also don't want to have to talk...

    All wireless all the time

    I thought I'd reply to two unrelated things in this thread at the same time. (1) The thing no one ever seems to realize when they think of voice controlled computers is that you'd have to talk ALL THE TIME. Personally, I think that would massively suck if I was watching TV, or in an...

    What would you like Apple to make for your computing goodness?

    i have two votes: (1) i'd prefer that really fast Ghz-speed wireless networking that Cringely was talking about last week. clicky-here and, if apple could please put it in laptops, desktops and their new PDA (look, in my fantasy, it exists), that would be totally rad. i want to...

    eeek! M$ and OpenGL?!

    This article disturbs me. Yes, it's light on details, and so we shouldn't read too much into this. However, if SGI has sold Microsoft patents related to OpenGL, then Apple is in a potentially very bad situation. Apple has no 3D API, and creating one requires more than just programming...

    Well, that's good news. Because it means it's theoretically possible for it to be majorly sped up at some point, assuming it's possible to hardware accelerate...
