    In need of good quality LCD monitors

    We have quite good expiriences with the SAMSUNG 940B TFT. Before the whole shebang here turned DELL, those were our monitors of choice. They are adjustable in height etc, and are pleasing for the eye even over longer periods of work. It's been a while since we bought them, as like I mentioned...

    Leopard ServerAdmin buggy?

    Thanks for the reply, I think I do have an ADC account. So far I have yet to see something different than a blank page when clicking the link... :confused: I'll keep checking it though, and hope to get through soon :) EDIT: Filed a bug for it, looking forward to Apple's response

    disable the Device Removal Message

    I doubt anyone ever seriously tried to kick it out. As it was said above, the message is there for a reason. I for one have not heard of anyone removing the message in anyway

    Leopard ServerAdmin buggy?

    I noticed that in the Leopard ServerAdmin, some lists are really buggy. Has anyone else expirienced similar issues? In particular I noticed that the list for the SoftwareUpdateService is really trippy, as you get all kinds of funky results when sorting the list for release date or name. You...

    Little snitch -should I get it?

    Seriously: LittleSnitch is one of the most single useful software I've seen so far on OS X. They added a lot of interesting new features in v2.x, and it's more reliable than ever. I for one still distrust the 10.5 firewall. I deactivated it, and configured the ipfw that was used in 10.4 using...

    This is a spontanious and possibly far fetch, but: Can you boot one of your other machines with the DVD? Maybe you could link the Powerbook via Target mode to that Mac and try to reset the password on that way. I never reset my password that way, so I don't know if you can chose the...

    Wow, I honestly can say: I have not yet met someone who had that severe problems with installing Leopard... this sucks. :(

    Provider-free iPhone now available...

    Reading that it will be around 500 Euro (more, but clearly less than 1000 Eur) in France, makes the T-Mobile offer of a free iPhone still look like a total rip off.

    The new keyboards!

    Then I must've confused that with something else, my bad. :) Wow, that sucks, How old is your keyboard? It's quite a bummer as I planned on getting a new one...

    The new keyboards!

    Hm, I might be mistaking, but I think the Intel machines do no longer support the Option-key choser. Not sure on that one though

    Further expirience with Leopard and Networking: Got Leopard talking to our LDAP-server at work. It can only use it when the connection is not SSL encrypted, though the Tiger Macs can. Which is kind of a bummer, but better than nothing. On the other hand, Leoapard with an Active Directory is...

    Apple admits to ‘misleading’ Leopard firewall settings

    I still don't trust the new application firewall. I rather rely on the still present ipw (configured quite solid with Flying Buttress) combined with LittleSnitch.

    10.5.1 Available

    FINALLY! Leopard is a lot less annoying in terms of Keychain access with 10.5.1. Behaves more like Tiger regarding that matter. However, nothing new regarding the lack of communication with our LDAP server at work, still not able to log on with a net account under Leopard

    Various expiriences with Leopard so far: It behaves very differently in our working environment at University compared to Tiger. LDAP authetification is somewhat broken, it's no longer possible to login via network accounts. Tools like NetInfo Manager are gone, it weird to look in different...

    A lot of people have problems with flashed graphic cards during/after the upgrade to Leopard. I read about a quite easy solution regarding the problem, unfortunately it is ATI specific. But maybe you can achieve something similar with your nVidia card (requires Tiger backup or another Tiger...

    The new iMac, HOLY COW

    I have a comparable Cherry Keyboard at work for my Linux box, and the keys are really great once you get the feel for it. I doubt that it will be any different with the new Apple Keyboard. The new iMac makes me ponder if I should finally throw my G4 MDD out and get one of the 20'-thingies...

    Mac OS X 10.4.10 in development

    As Leopard is still aalmost half a year away, I think it's a good thing that Apple brings another Update for Tiger. Thumbs up from me

    Apple Store down, MacBook update

    IMO, a very cheap update with all possible updates that were mentioned here and there (like LED powered screens etc). When are the Mac minis going to get an overhaul anyways?

    How do you manage your passwords

    At work we use a lot of pass phrases. Example: The weather is good to work on Servers today! would become TwigtwoSt! or Twig2woSt! As long as you can remember the phrase, you can reconstruct the password. Not all of our used passwords are save though, and we definately need to change...

    FileVault Poll

    Well, my girlfriend had FileVault active on her iBook. Until through not so clear circumstances the encrypted home image got coruppted somehow. I worked 1 1/2 weeks to recover pictures, music and so on with a great variety of tools. So, I think it's not really executed well enough to be a good...
