Re: Mother Earth

Wow. Truly stunning. I'm sure I could see my house on one of those shots. Now I know why my electricity bill is so high. :lol:

Re: When did Apple become the new Microsoft?

Yep, that was my understanding. I also understood (perhaps misunderstood?) that you had copied across data from a previous machine onto your new install. I don't recall mention about what method you used to copy that data. I never actaually copied any data. All Apps were newly installed or download...

Re: When did Apple become the new Microsoft?

The Apple store is about 30 miles away. I'm sure, if I get up early enough to avoid all the cows being taken for milking, I can catch the daily bus out of the village to the big City. :roll: I'll try and pop in early next week as the weekend will probably be hectic. It'll be interesting to hear what...

Re: When did Apple become the new Microsoft?

Hopefully quad core. :) Nope, in their infinite wisdom they have reduced it to duo core. :shock: I'm assuming you've done the shift boot thing to disable extensions. That leaves me with my favorite "bad guy" software. You running parallels, fusion, virtual box or some other system virtual...

Re: When did Apple become the new Microsoft?

Thanks guys but I am still convinced these issues are all OS based as every problem is affecting lots of other people who are all coming from different angles. ie new machines with pre-installed, old machines with upgrades, iMacs, mac minis, MBPs, Mac Pros etc. There seems to be no constant with the...

Re: When did Apple become the new Microsoft?

If it is a new Mac with so many probs, I'd take it back. My 2007 iMac and 2007 MBP haven't had any of the issues you're experiencing with a new machine. I feel your pain. Not good. :( Hi Briar, Thanks for the kind words. I've had in the region of 25 macs now, since 1985, most of which I still have,...

Re: When did Apple become the new Microsoft?

1. reset PRAM (https://support.apple.com/kb/PH14222?locale=en_GB&viewlocale=en_US) 2. reset SMC (https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT201295) 3. and use Onyx (http://www.titanium.free.fr/onyx.html) to clear out caches, etc. Thanks for the advice but these problems are not related to any of the abo...

Re: When did Apple become the new Microsoft?

On a side note, I just tried to view a video Vic had linked to on another thread. The one with the (Apple developer) guy laughing about the Mac notebook. Upon being taken to the YouTube site my screen went black and a message briefly appeared stating OS X had encountered a problem and was restarting...

Re: When did Apple become the new Microsoft?

What is the exact iTunes problem you see (I do use iTunes but tend to use playlists and the miniplayer whenever possible)? If you scroll through the library on iTunes then the lines of song information become overlapped with a song's info partially obscuring its neigbour's. It looks exceedingly str...

Re: When did Apple become the new Microsoft?

The 10.10.4 public betas (probably due to the removal of discoveryd) have I think fixed my major Wifi issues and most other funkiness from Yosemite at least. Any idea if it has solved the redraw issue in iTunes? The other thing I have noticed recently is that sometimes when waking from sleep the mo...

Re: When did Apple become the new Microsoft?

The public release of 10.10.4 should also ease things with the return of mDNSResponder. Yeah thanks, I mentioned they were bringing back the mDNSResponder. So all should be tickedy boo once it arrives. 8) Unfortunately it seems when there is a bug then the current system has the ability to pass it ...

Re: When did Apple become the new Microsoft?

I've always used Graphic Converter — I have never been able to afford the Adobe upgrade costs; I'd love to use Lightroom, which I used when it was first launched, but have been deterred by upgrade costs since. Graphic Converter ... brilliant program, I paid the $35 it cost back in 1990 or 1991, and...

Re: When did Apple become the new Microsoft?

So I'm surprised you have had such trouble with it on a new machine. Mind you, I haven't tried to import 5000 photos into Photo.app; most of mine are stored elsewhere, but the ones in iPhoto transferred without problem. I bought the high end mac mini due to Apple's decision to now solder in the RAM...

Re: When did Apple become the new Microsoft?

Wow Vic, I am very impressed, your very own local College of Domination and Bondage. :shock: The locals around here are far too snooty to allow such things. I am almost jealous. Have you ever considered asking them if they could cater to your fetish of being served beer on a regular basis? My local ...
