  • Wow, that's a pedigree! That (plus some money) will also qualify you for Apple Consultant's Network if you want to strike out on your own.
  • My guess is that they blacklisted the .mac domain as a spam source. I had this issue with another domain they blacklisted (which was as equally evil as .mac) - everything I sent to hotmail went into a big hole never to be seen again. I gave up and…
  • Dang. I wanted to see the message, too. Must be the rabid iMacies plugging up the works.
  • Apple does a divine job at refurb. I several years on these boards I don't recall ever seeing a bad comment on refurbs. Aftermarket ram sweetens the savings!
  • Are you using Mail or Thunderbird or ??? In either case, make sure your client is set to view html. There are arguments against viewing mail as html, but if you really gotta have those smilies, most come to you as html/attachments.
  • I tend to use your thinking - go with your gut and if it doesn't do the job, upgrade later. Buying advice (from lots of experience - hubby would say too much ): 1. get a refurb (save $400!) 2. take advantage of all the goodies apple offers r…

  • iPhones are pretty hot, so it may be optimistic to think they'll be included (but, hey a guy can dream! )
  • I would recommend making sure your RAM comes with a guarantee of compatibility. The following vendors seem to be geared toward the mac user on this front, as well as offering excellent service (as reported by members across several Mac fora) and pr…

  • I've used a couple of NAS devices (ximetas) on my wireless network. Their software is set up so that only one computer can access the HD at a time, which was a bit of a drag until we figured out how to work around it (mount and share the drive from…
  • And make sure you didn't pull free the cable that connects the trackpad to the trackpad/button assembly. This is an "if all else fails", because you'll have to do some partial disassembly of the computer.
  • I don't mind other users emailing me at all. I *do* mind bots tolling. Thanks for the tip! Toss the original post, then.

  • Had the same problem myself! # With the Mac OS X 10.4.6 system software update, PowerPC-based Macs will restart twice, instead of once, after the initial installation. # You may experience unexpected results if you have third-party system soft…

  • In 2006, using the wiki numbers you quoted, USB is still 80% of the speed of firewire. In my humble, it's a tangible diff backing up big HDs.
