    FedEx Hates Apple Deliveries (at least in Madison, WI)

    Being an avid Apple consumer. It's safe to say I regularly purchase from Apple. In addition to that, I also purchase from Amazon, eBay and other online stores. But recently it has become more and more prevalent that when I order from Apple, FedEx has this inability to actually deliver my...

    Xserve Dns Setup

    Hi, The office I work in recently updated their router. We had an IT guy come in and set everything up. This was a significant upgrade in hardware, and we've been extremely happy with the results thus far. However, one draw back to everything being set up "correctly" is that our local...

    Goudy Font not previewing

    In our creative department, we've been having font problems. So, being the instigator of large projects, I took on the responsibility to get everyone on ONE font set throughout the department. I have spent about 24 working hours sifting through the machines, eliminating redundant fonts and...

    Connection Drop

    I'm moving an entire department from OS9 to OSX (Panther). SO far everything is going grand. One 'problem' that the designers are having is that they are constantly getting disconnected from the shared server (Win 2000). I'm on the same network, but only seem to experience these disconnects...

    I really like using Sherlock to look up movies. Madison, where I'm from, used to have some great movie listings, but they all are pretty difficult to find online now. Sherlock was a quick way to cut through it all and find just what I was looking for, in a simple UI. Now, my problem with...

    Open Office Install for Dummies

    I'm looking to present a free solution to my office... they don't want to give Bill Gates any more money. Their frustration is at the level that they've asked me to look into free alternatives to Office. I immediately remembered OpenOffice so I went to check it out. Here's what I've...

    SSH GUI Login?

    So I was having problems with a server I admin. It's based in another state. The local IT guy has been messing with it and took off the auto login option, which I didn't realize until after I had restarted the machine remotely. Now, the machine is stuck at the GUI login screen and none of the...

    Can't add events in iCal

    So I purchased a new Dual G5. And I was migrating all my things to it the other day. I figured I wouldn't need to do that with iCal, because my schedule had cleared up and I saw this as a good time to just start fresh. So nothing was transfered to it or anything like that. The other day...

    Wireless iPod

    Yes, I'd like to have a wireless iPod. Yes, keep the cable for charging the battery, that's obvious, but what about wireless transfer. You're iPod enters the room of the host machine, Rendezvous picks it up and iTunes can share that music, just as machines do now. Not only that, but...

    Contextual Application Launcher?

    I've been looking for a contextual menu application launcher utility app. The idea is that I like to keep my dock minimized and with only my main programs. But, especially on my laptop, there I find myself hunting down the location of some utility app. It's a real pain. I installed Rocket...
