    32 bit applications

    Go64 has no print function that I could find and won’t allow me to copy the interesting lines. EtreCheck and EtreCheckPRO can print, maybe even just the 32-bit section, but they both miss some biggies. I ran it on a Mojave iMac with MS Office 2011 and they missed the whole install. For all...

    32 bit applications

    I tried, but the printed (PDF) application report is no longer sorted. I got it to display “not 64” first and hoped I could just delete all after. If I can save it as plain text, I can write an AWK script to strip out what I want.

    32 bit applications

    I have received a few warnings that no 32 bit apps will run at all under Catalina; and help to find such things via the System Report. When I get the list in System Report, I can’t find a way to print just the 32 bit section. No matter how I sort it, it wants to do the full list which, on my...

    Cheap, simple WiFi broadcaster

    I have an old Apple Time Capsule. The internal disk went toes-up a long time ago and, since then, its only function has been to broadcast a WiFi network. It’s only a matter of time (short) before that expires. I have an even older Airport Extreme which the current Airport Utility refuses to...

    Texting on iPad thru iPhone

    I want to read & write text messages on my iPad, using my beloved bluetooth keyboard, but accessing the text facility on my iPhone. To put it another way, use the iPad as a remote control for the iPhone. Is there an app for that? I found one called AirDroid for doing just that with an Android...

    Super Duper. But I haven’t tried a full copy for a few years and at least one iMac ago ...

    DIY external storage

    Agree. The drive I had to have ‘recovered’ was in that range.

    DIY external storage

    About a year ago, I spent a lot of $$ with a service to recover data from a dead-ish external USB drive. I generally buy Seagate or WD and want to retire them after 2 years or so. Too short? Too long? I’m considering rolling my own, so this is to solicit recommendations for bare drives...

    Can’t change Safari homepage.

    I got rid of that plist and restarted the system and then Safari. No change.

    Can’t change Safari homepage.

    My wife complained to me that when she opens a new Safari page (on her iMac running 10.13.6), instead of the expected Google search page, now she always gets apple.com. I looked in Safari’s preferences and, sure enough, the homepage is set to Apple. When I try to change it, after I click away...

    Disk Image Mounter

    I had a similar problem a couple weeks ago, but with ‘old’ apps. Not all, but some, and frequently used. Click on a dock icon - nothing. Double click an app file - nothing. Right click and select open - nothing. A reboot fixed it.

    External drive duplicator

    I have used SuperDuper for years and recommend it highly for working with disks that are in good physical condition. I did try it on my bad drive, which took 20 minutes to mount! After that I started a copy using SuperDuper. After an hour or so, it had copied a couple MB and had brought my...

    External drive duplicator

    For the first time (perhaps I'm very lucky) one of my external drives has failed. No problems leading up to it; one day OK, next day a brick. One partition was for Time Machine backups. If that was all, I would cross my fingers, replace it with a new drive, and start from scratch. But ...

    ‘virtual’ replacement for home button

    The emergency is over. It turned out I was 5 (!) days from expiration of AppleCare. Apple didn’t repair the button, they returned a new (to me) iPad. That was money well spent. I have now. Were you referencing ‘assistice touch’? I’m playing with it now. It works for me. Thanks!

    ‘virtual’ replacement for home button

    The home button on my iPad Pro (new 7/2016) has become undependable. Since I use a smart keyboard, I try to use cmd-H as much as possible, but it doesn’t work everywhere. When I’m away from the keyboard, I’m SOL. Is there any way to define a keystroke / screen tap combo as a virtual home button?

    Firewall For Windows Machine On My Network

    I have all Apple equipment on a network behind an Apple Extreme router in DHCP+NAT mode. We are reasonably prudent about which websites we visit and which email links to click. Now on the scene is a friend with a Dell laptop running some flavor of Windows. You can probably guess where I'm...

    Dead 10.5.8 Machine, Good Time Machine Backup Disk

    After recovering from turkey-induced coma ... Resetting PRAM accomplished nothing. But, holding down the power button for about 5 seconds provoked a weird 3 second tone I have never heard before, then the familiar bong, then the gray screen with the Apple in the center! But after a few more...
