Hi, I would like to replace an open source image on Wikipedia with a vastly superior quality version that I created using an original open source image. I spent many hours cleaning up and improving the image in an image editing program. I've tried to follow the Wikipedia help resources but I find them to be long and complicated. Does anyone have experience in Wikipedia that can describe simply what I need to do. Although the image is open source, I would at least...
I certainly did! I am downloading the patch now. Thanks for such a quick response!
Hullo, Lately my Finder has been crashing a lot. When I say crash what happens is the menu bar and icons/Finder windows all disappear and then the menu bar and desktop icons reappear a second later as if I had just logged in. The dock is unaffected by this. It happens a lot when I right click on icons to view/select from the contextual menu. I have recently installed a bunch of new software including Final Cut Pro and Photoshop CS2 and I didn't notice it doing this...
This keynote was ALL about iPhone. Jobs wanted as much attention on it as possible. He also said there will be a slew of new products in the coming months. I would predict (and hope for) a widescreen iPod 80Gb+ model in the same mold as the iPhone but without phone and camera.
I think Monty Python and the Holy Grail is in order!
3 hours to go. What movie will I watch to make the time go quickly?
Sorry for a non-tech related comment, but as an environmental scientist I found that video hilarious!!! It obviously wasn't written by anyone with much of a scientific background. I love the fact that they compare deforestation in the Amazon and desertification in the Sahara and imply there is some relationship between the two! It's also funny how they pull up all these fancy animations and think they're wonderful without even asking how it was produced, what the...
I would like to see more colour brought back but not in a candy-bar way like Aqua, more dark professional looking colours with more choice in colour schemes. Tiger has a choice of only Blue and Graphite appearance. Even OS 9 had more choice in the colour for menu bars and scroll bars.
I wouldn't expect a major overhaul of the UI in Leopard. There will be some colour shifts and refinement but that has always occurred as part of a major "dot" release. If you're expecting something completely new and different I'd be prepared to be disappointed. iTunes 7 is the best indication of what we're likely to see in Leopard. Be careful not to get swept up in the reality distortion field!
From what I've seen, the screens on the new iMacs are very good and I think dead pixels out of the box aren't too common and you'd be unlucky to get one (though I don't know if there are any figures on the probability of one...?). As for how noticeable it might be, that would depend on both the colour and location of the dead pixel. Apple has guidelines on what will qualify for a replacement though if you are really unhappy they will usually try to accommodate and...
