    How to delete trusted connection?

    I was playing around and created a computer-to-computer network between my iMac and my TiVo since I have not yet received the Airport base station I mail-ordered. Now I'd like to delete the computer-to-computer network from the list of trusted networks but there doesn't seem to be a way to do...

    iMac G4 - Broken memory clips

    My mother bought a G4 off eBay with an Airport card that I planned on using in my G4. Well in the process of removing the card I snapped off the clips that hold in the RAM. The Apple store told me it would be $400 to repair it! For two tiny small clips that can'h have cost more than a few cents...

    Airport express - networking via USB?

    I am thinking about setting up a network with my iMac and TiVo. I am wondering if I could use Airport Express to hook up to the TiVo through the USB adaptor? I could buy a wired router and USB->ethernet adaptor of course but it would be nice to save the extra cables and hardware given the rat's...

    iDVD4, can't access iDVD 2 themes

    I upgraded from iDVD 2 to iDVD 4 and in the process I lost all the iDVD 2 themes. Various people have indicated that iDVD 4 should the iDVD 2 themes but for me they aren't there. The install left iDVD 2 in place but I stupidly deleted it thinking it wasn't needed any more. Now I can't open my...

    Stickies service launches OS9 version

    For some unfathomable reason when I now use the "Make New Sticky Note" service OSX launches the OS9 Stickies app, not the OSX version. It used to work just fine with the OSX version. Any ideas why? Since only Cocoa apps are supposed to be able to provide services I find this a little...

    Hang when wake from sleep (again)

    Once again my G4 iMac is semi-hanging when waking from sleep. The GUI responds like normal, no problems, but no new apps can be launched (they bounce and bounce and finally end up in this "not responding" state) and existing apps can't do anything that touches the HD. I suspect that the HD is...

    USB port crashes on wake from sleep

    Sometimes if I am too quick to move the mouse when my flat-panel iMac wakes from sleep the mouse and keyboard (the mouse is plugged into the keyboard) will stop working. Switching the keyboard to another USB port will cause it to start working again but for the rest of that session the previous...

    determining correct iMac LCD color setup

    I have a new G4 iMac and I am not particularly happy with the default "LCD Display" color sync profile, it just looks too washed out for me. I've tried creating new profiles with both no gamma and a PC/TV gamma of 2.2 and they look better but still not quite true to life. Any graphics...

    More than one version of 10.1.4

    Looks like there is more than one version of 10.1.4 out there! My old CRT iMac shows the build number as "5Q125" while the new 800 mhz flat-panel I just bought shows it as "5R48", interesting! I've noticed one difference already, when I press the disk eject key a disk eject icon appears on...

    Clock.app unexpectedly quits on login

    I have an odd problem on my iMac DV-SE 500. My login and logout times are fairly long (on the order of 20-30 seconds) and whenver I log in the Clock.app (which is set to launch in the background on login) unexpectedly quits. If I then manually relaunch the clock it works fine. The console log...

    Lock Omniweb as the default browser?

    Seems ever since I installed 10.1 all I have to do is look at my Mac funny and it resets the default browser to Internet Explorer. I'm looking for a way to lock Omniweb as the default web browser even if I install a new copy or do whatever is causing it to reset. I know I could play tricks...

    Sharity configuration problems

    I've been trying to get Sharity to network my iMac and my roommate's NT 4.0 PC and I have been having a lot of problems getting it to work right. Unfortunately the documentation and the user interface leave a lot to be desired. I downloaded the last beta version and after fiddling and...

    Keystrokes being lost

    I have a weird problem where keystrokes keep getting dropped while typing. I am wondering if others have seen this problem or whether perhaps there is a problem with my Pro keyboard. I have noticed that the Pro keyboard seems to require that the keys be striked harder and for longer than the...

    Mail.app hangs on startup

    About 90% of the time Mail.app will hang on startup after it's initial fetch of mail. I get the downloading mail popup, the mail downloads, displays in the browser and I hear the "new mail" ping. However control never returns, I just get the spinning wheel of death. The text "fetching new mail"...

    Machine: iMac DV-SE 500 Application: Apple Mail I've been having a problem with Apple Mail where some of my outgoing mail appears to be getting lost. Unfortunately the app doesn't give any real-time feedback on whether mail which gets sent is actually delivered. Sure sometimes I get an SMTP...
