  • Yeah, that is an annoying limitation, and it doesn't even let you know that it doesn't display them.
  • Oh, and things like spinning beach balls are usually the result of not making a threaded (or properly threaded) application, or waiting on locked resources. Often, small programs gain no benefit and add increased complexity to add threading. If t…
  • Coding to handle errors and problems is not an easy thing to do. There are so many things that can go wrong, and to check for all of them takes up too many resources and makes everything go too slowly. Corrupted files are probably the most common…
  • What about putting it in your Start Up items (System Preferences->Accounts->Login Items) and check the Hide box? Don't know if it will work, but it sounds like it should.
  • Can't tell you how to open X11 for nedit (which I think is a great editor), but to open an OSX app, you type 'open'. Since .apps are bundles, you can't just use ./Application. You could cd through the bundle and find the actual execu…
  • You know those apple stickers that came with your computer? (I assume they still give those out with systems), just put one of those on your car or your possessions you wear in public, and you'll be a recognized member of the Mac elite!
  • I can't really help you with the first 5 questions, but I can with number 6: They are not interchangeable, though you will see some use it that way. 'Apple' refers to the company, and Mac refers to the computers themselves, and Mac OS refers to t…
  • Yes, very similar to that Here's a random picture of it
  • Searching may be all fine and dandy until the database becomes corrupted. Then it's back to the hierarchy while it builds a new one. On the other hand, when the folder trees are screwed, maybe searching in future models will keep working!
  • Well, isn't that sweet
  • I had a flakey drive with 10.3.9 on it (a couple files were giving I/O errors) so I installed Tiger on a brand new drive. I was then going to use the Migration Assistant to copy the stuff from my 10.3.9 drive. The Migration Assistant got part way…
  • They need to put a sensor in the F12 key so that it can start refreshing as your finger is approaching! I like it though because it keeps all those little apps out of my way when I'm not using them. Some of the widgets are pretty bad (*cough* sti…
  • cubist, the change is that Appletalk will only work over TCP/IP. I don't know why they did it and it has caused me a lot of grief, but it's the case.
  • I've had ghost cursors show up on my second monitor. A second cursor just sits there until I move the cursor back to that monitor. Previews of movies being downloaded keep flashing at each write. This may have happened in Panther, but I never wit…
  • It also crashes when one of your hard drives has corrupted files on it. If I let my search go too long and the icons start filling in, it crashes. It's understandable but then I lose all my search results including the good ones.
  • Yeah, cause that's the only symbology in Blizzard games. And now that you've figured it out, Baal, Mephisto and Diablo are coming to give you a personal visit! And all along, I just though M stood for Minimize, or window Mode :P
  • I have just confirmed that WC3 will indeed go to window mode with Command + M.
  • Not certain about WarCraft, but most Blizzard games, including Diablo 2 and Starcraft, will go into windowed mode by pressing Command + M. I don't know if WC3 will because it's 3D, but it's worth the shot.
  • Just a note about Tool Tips: Any widget put together in Interface Builder can have a tool tip associated with it. Most developers don't use them, or just make them a couple words, but there is no reason why they can't be descriptive and describe any…
  • The old help that Kickaha mentions was superb. There was no guess work, no trying to compare poor screenshots with the real thing (especially after version changes) and I learned a lot that way. I also remember the tutorials that came on the cons…
