Setting free my Sony Blu-ray DVD playback

I purchased a Sony S5200 Blu-Ray player in USA and a RCA URC RCR003RWD. I followed the instructions which came with the URC to program it for controlling my Blu-Ray player. The On-Off and several other keys are now working. However, the procedure to make the player region free did not yield any result. Any guidance will be most welcome and appreciated.

Success with a Sony BDP-S590 (region 2) and an All-In-One URC-7960 by following the instructions above!
To those people with region-1 players (USA/Canada etc.) I've heard that this method can't be used to make it region free though I can't personally confirm this. Has someone with a region-1 Sony Blu-Ray player managed to make theirs region-free?


To Marc:
I agree it's confusing as I didn't understand it at first either, but I figured out that the first stage (the instructions with the magic codes above etc.) is all about programming the All-In-One. The next stage is actually transmitting those codes over to the Sony Blu-Ray player to make it region-free, so this is what you do after having programmed the All-In-One:

1) (Using the Sony remote) turn the Sony Blu-Ray player ON (if it's not already on)

2) ensure that there is no disc inside

3) Wait till the Blu-Ray player is ready (its display should read "Home")

4) (Using the One-For-All remote), press the following number buttons after each other: 1 2 3 4 5

5) If I remember correctly there should now be an "OK" in the Blu-Ray player's display

6) (using the Sony remote) turn OFF the Blu-Ray player

4) turn ON the Blu-Ray player, insert a different region DVD and enjoy your success!

Hope this helps and good luck!

Localize is amazing I can’t wait until they add date translations. Then I’d be set.

I tried poeditor and felt a little lost. This stuff is a little over my head so just being able to slap some code into the injector and only having to make minor changes like translating words is about as advanced as I can get.

Is there a way to add a day to the date? Right now it’s subtracting a day when translating :/

Here’s what I have currently injected into the footer:


/* List of months in Spanish */
var month = new Array(12);
month[0] = "enero";
month[1] = "febrero";
month[2] = "marzo";
month[3] = "abril";
month[4] = "mayo";
month[5] = "junio";
month[6] = "julio";
month[7] = "agosto";
month[8] = "septiembre";
month[9] = "octubre";
month[10]= "noviembre";
month[11]= "diciembre";

Y.use('node', 'node-load', function(Y) {
Y.on('domready', function() {

/* (1) Reformat blog entries published dates */
Y.all('time.published').each(
function() {
var pdate = new Date(this.getAttribute('datetime'));
this.setHTML(pdate.getDate () + " de "
+ month[pdate.getMonth()] + " "
+ pdate.getFullYear());
}
);
});
});

Please help I have an Instagram issue that's driving me crazy!

Hi David thank you so much for this excellent post!

I only have one problem... for some reason it's translating the date (the day number) to be one day before the actual date. See screenshot: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ifj8gev2xbus2c6/Screenshot%202015-06-21%2020.23.30.png?dl=0

Any idea why this might be happening? It might be worth mentioning that it flashes correctly in english for a millisecond... Any advice for a fix?

Thanks in advance for your time!

Setting free my Sony Blu-ray DVD playback

Use the Sony remote to bring the player out of standby, make sure there isn't a disc in it;
Press 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 on the OneForAll remote. The light will start flashing;
Put the player back into standby with the Sony remote.
Next time you turn on the player it will be region free for DVD playback.

I don't understand this procedure.
Turn on Blu ray player
then on 1forAll press 1 2 3 4 5??
Do I have to press first the magic button?
If I use 12345 nothing happen on the 1forAll remote.
If I press the magic button only 1234 are accepted.

Please explain better

Great post, but have you guys tried the easier way of localizing/translating Squarespace websites (including Squarespace 6 & Squarespace 7)?

Try https://www.bablic.com, We're getting amazing feedback from Squarespace users who are absolutely loving it since it's such an easy and user-friendly way to translate Squarespace sites.

Using Bablic.com you can choose any template you'd like, it works perfectly with all of them. Also lets you choose from machine translation or professional translation. It also lets you manually edit text, replace images and even edit css/style at the click of a button which makes sure your website keeps its look and feel in all of the languages you offer.

It also automatically ads a floating widget that lets you choose between your languages, for example French or English. You can also customize the widget if you'd like. Bablic also works on Mobile sites, I really recommend you give it a try.

Here's the tutorial for Squarespace integration which is extremely simple: http://blog.bablic.com/translate-your-squarespace-website-with-bablic/

Give it a try but just entering your website on our homepage at Bablic.com.

Hi,

Thank you for this very instructive post.

Please see below another way to localize dates (to French) for a summary calendar item. I inject this code in the local page injection section.

YUI().use("node", "datatype-date", "attribute", function(Y) {
// Setting the correct localization to French
Y.use("lang/datatype-date-format_fr-FR",
function(Y) {
Y.Intl.setLang("datatype-date-format", "fr-FR");
}
);

Y.on('domready', function () {
Y.all(".summary-metadata-item--date").each(function(i) {
// Select all the summary date items and initiate an each loop
// Adapt the selectors to your needs
var myContainer = this,
retrievedDate = this.getHTML(),
// Retrieves the date displayed by default in US format
parsedDate = Y.Date.parse(retrievedDate);
// Parse the retrieved date
Y.use("lang/datatype-date-format_fr-FR", function(Y) {
Y.Intl.setLang("datatype-date-format", "fr-FR");
// Switch the language ressource bundle to French
var formattedDate = Y.Date.format(parsedDate, {format:"%d %b %G"});
// Format the date with French standard
myContainer.setHTML(formattedDate);
// Output the formatted date
});
});
});
});

Has anyone tried this specifically with a Sony BDP-BX57 and AllForOne URC-7140 and had success? For anyone who is familiar with this combo I also ran a firmware update recently and I am not operating on the software version: MO4.R.789 - hopefully that means something to someone. I have tried every code sequence, sequence modification mentioned here and I'm still not able to unlock it. Does anyone know if resetting the DVD player to factory default settings is required before doing this hack? Any suggestions of line of thought are welcome.

I used this on my s720 and confirm it works. It took a while to get there. I used an One for All URC-7140. Other models might have similar issues.

When I press 994 the blue light blinks. a couple of times. Yiu need to wait for it to stop blinking before pressing the magic key again (between steps 5 and 6, etc.)

I'm hoping I don't face the same issues as Martin (post #26). Only hacked it today, but I'll let you know if the machine dies on me.

iTunes 12 {international} Days of Christmas

Thanks @FG!


iTunes 12 {international} Days of Christmas

Apple really is very poor at managing localisation. The iTunes store you use should not be affected by the region format you use - I'm currently US-based (for now, anyway!), but prefer the UK language/region format on both OS X and iOS because of things like date/time formatting (I hate Month/Day/Year) and spelling. That's obviously not as big a deal as changing the entire language in order to make things compatible, but it's still annoying. and hopefully they've changed this in later versions of iOS and iTunes.

(Also, I'd like you to know that I've linked to some of your articles about internationalisation on my 'Inclusive Tech' blog, a guide to developers on creating more inclusive websites. One of my emphases is on internationalisation.)

iOS 8 Family Sharing lockout

I don't think you can…

Leaving Family Sharing
When you leave Family Sharing, your account is removed from the family group and you immediately stop sharing music, movies, TV shows, books, and apps with any remaining family members.

Any DRM-protected music, movies, TV shows, books, or apps you previously downloaded from other family members’ collections will no longer be usable, and other family members will no longer be able to use content downloaded from your collection. If you have made In-App Purchases from an app originally purchased by someone else, you will need to purchase the app yourself to regain access to your In-App Purchases.

In addition, family photos, calendar, and reminders will be removed from your devices, you will stop sharing your location with other family members, and your devices will be removed from the family Find My iPhone device list.

Thanks for this.
I can confirm that the hack above works for a Sony BDP-S490 with a One For All URC-4170 remote.
I have tried Region 1, 2 and 3 DVDs and now thankfully it will play them all!
I disconnected the player from the mains and then plugged it in again just to check if it would lock again but it seems it is still region free.
Now I will put in the correct code 1516 to enable the URC to control the player.
Cheers!


There's a market for that

Not really related to iPhone... a few things I don't get about Apple, but main one is Thunderbolt. The firm gave up with their own such promoted FireWire and switched to this new wire a few years ago. I was thinking about a MacPro to plug on motherboard a very good graphic card, that's what the Mac"Pro" stands for, a modulable computer. But on the new one, you cannot even do it ! There's only 6 thunderbolt holes in the back and that's it, like any other Mac computer. At that day, the industry is not following it, sound or graphic cards and HD are a few few, and expensive. A company has built a "chassis" to plug any USB3 device, and having Thunderbolt at the end, it's the size of a computer and worth $1000 !
Why Apple give up with their professional cutomers for family market, and on the other hand launch wires too "avant-garde" for them.
I need the best NVIDIA card, I'm gonna be back to my teenager Windows PC ! With a few tears. A few pips.


There's a market for that

You're so right, David !
Some buy a smartphone and others buy the right to say they have the latest. Some buy the features of that object because the need them (or think they need them !) and others the idea that they're worth more possessing that object.
Some objects can satisfy two (or more) needs and therefore justify their existence on the market(s) !

Squarespace 6 localisation

There is an online solution that can provide an easy way around:

https://localizejs.com/docs/integrations/squarespace

You can manage a glossary of word and phrases to translate on their site via your account.

Might be worth a try.


Squarespace 6 localisation

Hi @Dieter,

It's a bummer that Squarespace doesn't provide an easy way to customise these labels yet… with all the sponsoring they are doing around the world, their product is still EN only.

The only way around for the time being is to inject JavaScript to replace specific character strings on the fly. Not ideal as it doesn't scale and can break when the template is updated…

Moreover, these replacements are template dependant.

You need to make an inventory of all the labels you need to translate, and then target a CSS class or ID for each of them before applying a similar approach to what is described above.

I can't really help more as I've given up on Squarespace for the time being. It turned out too much of a hassle to maintain all the different snippets of code…

iOS 8 Family Sharing lockout

@Michelle

There is a way to prevent the two iPhones (and/or iPads) from both ringing when one gets a call. On the device you do not want to ring, go to Settings --> FaceTime --> iPhone Cellular Calls and touch the slide switch to turn it off.


iOS 8 Family Sharing lockout

I would hope Apple addresses the Family Sharing lockout issue. Like many others, I played around with it after updating my household's iOS devices last week, just to see how it works, and got locked out after deactivating twice.

Unfortunately, the Apple support supervisor with whom I spoke earlier today told me flat out I'd simply have to wait a year. Given that there was no warning that the account would be locked out, I find that "solution" simply unacceptable.

My household has 10 Apple products from Apple TV to iMac and everything in between, and in the many years of using the products and the otherwise superb support, this is the first time I'm an unhappy camper.

I would hope that with the volume of complaints on the Apple support boards, the media will get wind of it and push Apple to do the right thing.


iOS 8 Family Sharing lockout

@Michelle,

Ouch. Yes, it's called Continuity https://www.apple.com/ios/whats-new/continuity/

You need to use separate Apple IDs for all iCloud related tasks such as mail, contact and calendar management, backup, … and the same Apple ID for purchases.

Family Sharing enables you to use of the same Apple ID for purchases (meaning the same credit card is debited, apps and media are shared) while using your own Apple ID to authenticate.


iOS 8 Family Sharing lockout

@Keith,

I guess so. Check the last paragraph of “A Guide to Family Sharing” https://developer.apple.com/icloud/documentation/family-sharing/


iOS 8 Family Sharing lockout

Can I still get locked out for a year for starting my own family share and then stopping it twice?


iOS 8 Family Sharing lockout

I had problems getting the family sharing to work, and like in the past, when something technical isn't working,(I'm not technical) delete and start over. I'm now locked out for a year. Went into an apple store, they couldn't fix. Apple store set me up with an appt for an account representative to call me. The account representative also can't unlock my account. But guess what? My apple ID has been added to a "list" of people affected by this, and Apple may or may not be working on a solution...lucky me.
Since my husband and I use the same apple ID account, ios8 has linked our phones. When my husband's phone gets a call both our phones ring, and when one of us gets a text, we both get it. This is a new "feature" of ios8, for info to ring across all of one's devices, and you can't turn it off. Family sharing is their solution to phones being linked...thanks apple!!!


iOS 8 Family Sharing lockout

@Chris,

When you create your family group, you need to provide the Apple ID you use for purchases on the Store (the @gmail one?) and keep your iCloud settings pn @me/icloud

Basically, my guess is you _should_ be able to keep your current situation going, except that your family members will use their own Apple ID to buy from the Store, but it will be charged to your @gmail credit card…

Hope this helps…


iOS 8 Family Sharing lockout

Like you (and many others) I had to establish an iTunes account with a non-Apple email years ago, and later my Apple email was used for my contacts, email, etc. with iCloud. So I've always had 2 accounts: @me.com / @icloud.com email for contacts/calendars/email etc, and my @gmail account for iTunes and apps. Now what do I do for Family Sharing? iOS 8 insists on only 1 email account. If I pick my music, etc. I lose my iCloud contacts on my phone and visa versa.

We saw no "OK" on the screen of the player or else.

Setting free my Sony Blu-ray DVD playback

Confirming it also works with BDP-S490 and URC7140! Same as above, blu-ray player displays message "OK" at the end, no need to restart at the mains.


Setting free my Sony Blu-ray DVD playback

Confirmed as working for bdp-s4100 using 0533 code. Player displays message "OK" after pressing button 5.


Setting free my Sony Blu-ray DVD playback

After I hacked my BDP S-1100 successfully (see my previous post here) it now stopped working altogether. I plays DVDs for 5 minutes and then stops. The screen goes dark. After that happens, when I turn it off and on again, the screen goes dark right after the Sony/Blue-Ray bootup logo shows. When I leave it off for a while it wil start working again, but only for 5 minutes.

Now I am not sure if it is simply broken without me having to do with it, or if what I did broke it? Does any one know if what we are doing to hack our players can actually brick them and cause what is happening to me?

I have sent the player in to have it exchanged for a new one, it is still under warranty. But I am now a bit hesitant to hack the new player again...any thoughts?

I was also wondering how one could reverse the region code hack? Is that possible? I am pretty sure it is possible, so the question should be does anyone know how?

Setting free my Sony Blu-ray DVD playback

Uups, sorry...I got a bunch of errors and tried to repost. I didn't realize that every time I did it actually went through...


Setting free my Sony Blu-ray DVD playback

Hi,

it worked for me on a BDP-S1100 Model with the code "20533" used in the first step....or one of the other "..533" codes, I don't know for sure, read on...

There was NO flashing of anything as described in the last step where you send the commands to the player. Neither on the remote (other than the one-time flashing that happens with every press of any button) nor on the player. However, it must have worked because I can play my region 1 DVDs now.

Unfortunately I missed the opportunity to try and see if the DVD would have played with the player in its out of the box state. I do not know if what I did made it work, or if it perhaps would have worked anyways. I also cannot say if the "0533" or "00533" code already did the trick in my first two attempts because there was never any feedback (flashing) if the commands I sent were successfully received or not. I also did not try to play the DVD inbetween the attempts of the different initiall "533 codes". I simply tried them one after another and was hoping to see the confirming flashing, wich did never happen. So after 3 attempts I simply put in the DVD and it played.

Therefore I cannot say which initial code finally made it work.

I used the One For All URC 3940 Slim Line 4 remote.

Martin


Setting free my Sony Blu-ray DVD playback

@Paul: Yup, it Works for BDP-S1100 and also there is no need to ' hard-reboot' the DVD-player as I read on another website. Simply turn the player back on with the original remote and it id Region free.
Btw, I used an OFA URC-7960 remote (if someone might feel the need to ask. ;) ).


Setting free my Sony Blu-ray DVD playback

@Sina I experienced the same issue until I used the 0533 setup code.

@Paul check the DVDExplorer Database for your model http://www.dvdexploder.com/dvdsales.htm As mentioned earlier, I don't have access to Region 1 Blu-Rays and haven't been able to try… Good luck.

Hi,

Thanks for this post.

- Does this trick work for REGION 1 (American) Sony Blu-Ray players?
Anybody has tested on Region 1 Sony players?

I read it works only for Region 2 and 4 Blu-Ray players, so I'm not sure to order a One For All remote control to free my unit which is Region 1 (from USA)...

- Does this procedure works for Sony BDP-S1100 ?

Thanks a lot


Setting free my Sony Blu-ray DVD playback

Same as Johnny K above, once I press 5 the BlueRay player just turns off (Sony BDP-S770).

Using OneForAll COARC05G. It doesn't accept 0533 or 00533, or 1516 or 01516. Tried with 20533, 21533, 20864, etc... with no luck. :(

I used your code to translate the date format in to finnish, and it worked perfectly.

For some reason, though, I can't get the "substitute specific strings" part of your code to work. I'm trying to translate "Newer" and "Older" in the blog, but the default ones stay anyways. Do you have an idea, why it doesn't work? I used your example code from SQS Answers forum, and just replaced french words with finnish equivalents.

Here's my code:

How to use Font Awesome in a Desktop app

Dave,

I found this on Adobe's website:

http://helpx.adobe.com/mena/using/arabic-hebrew.html#id_39921

Legacy font support
Available in InDesign CS6, Illustrator CS6, Photoshop CS6

Fonts that have been traditionally used (for example, AXT fonts) can continue to be used in this release of the software. However, it is recommended that newer Open Type fonts be used for text-based elements.

Missing Glyph Protection (Edit > Preferences > Advanced Type) is enabled by default. Text is handled automatically, where glyphs are not available in the font you are using.


How to use Font Awesome in a Desktop app

Hi there,

I'm having no luck seeing the entire fontset in Adobe InDesign CS6, Mac (OS 10.6.8). No 'Enable Glyph Protection' setting exists. I can see a small subset of the fontset in both Fontbook and InDesign's Glyph palette.

What have I overlooked?

Cheers,

-dave^h.

Made my Swedish DBP-S383 region free using this guide. You also don't need the original remote to switch the unit on and off for it to work.(I used the powerbutton on the player)


Setting free my Sony Blu-ray DVD playback

@Johnny K yes, I had exactly the same issue until I used the 0533 code.

I know this is a bit cumbersome, but try using the other setup codes such as 20533 or 1516.

What is your model? The above procedure worked for my Blu-Ray player, I'm not sure it works for DVD players (as you mention in your comment).

Above does not work for me....
programmed my all in one, which seemed to go just as outlined until the " 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 " step. that only turns the DVD player off...

@Philipp Metzler Are you sure that it is really in the base WebKit?

Safari 6 breaks my JavaScript

Hello David,

I'm glad that my info managed to help; I found your blog post very helpful too in analyzing the problem. My own code ended up with a small 1 millisecond timer calling the scrolling function, and everything works perfectly until the bug is fixed. ;-)

Good luck with your site!

Safari 6 breaks my JavaScript

Thank you @Johnny for this detailed explanation!
It will be of great help in fixing existing code until the bug iitself is corrected.


Safari 6 breaks my JavaScript

There is a related bug in Safari 6:

When you insert an element into the DOM, you can no longer immediately do "container.scrollTop = container.scrollHeight"; it will not scroll to the absolute bottom, and will instead stop a few pixels shy, such as scrolling down to 877 pixels rather than 880 pixels. The error gets larger the more elements are in the DOM.

.scrollHeight immediately updates properly; it's the .scrollTop property which can no longer scroll immediately down to the new bottom, and clamps the value to some pixels before the end, if called too soon.

The solution is to insert a small wait period, like this:
- Insert the new element into DOM.
- setTimeout(function(){container.scrollTop = container.scrollHeight;},1)

This will insert a millisecond (plus some overhead) of wait before the .scrollTop change attempt, and is enough to fix the bug. The bug appeared in Safari 6 or the last Safari 5 version.

I think it's related to Apple doing all kinds of optimizations (as usual) on their very fast Javascript engine, and somehow screwing something up in the process.


Pushing Fantastical to the right

@Dale,

Yes, I had the same problem.. I've solved it by adding the Fantastical Menu.menu file to my Application folder and launching it from there.

If you move it after launching it, it won't launch at the next restart. So move it to its final destination before launching it.

That should do the trick.


Pushing Fantastical to the right

A little help!

First, thanks for this. After downloading Fantastical, my first move was to try and push it right.

However, I downloaded the little menu extra, opened it, and got things moved right.

Then on restart, it comes right back left. Command+move doesn't work to pull it right again.

I did delete the little menu extra. Should I have opened package contents and put it in there? Put it in the applications folder? I don't have to keep it in my downloads folder permanently, do I?

Thanks for the help!

Setting free my Sony Blu-ray DVD playback

@Lionel,

Le lecteur doit être éteint lorsque vous faite la manip avec la télécommande One4All. Vous ne faites que programmer la télécommande.

- Une fois la programmation terminée, allumez votre BD avec la télécommande Sony
- Reprogrammez le lecteur BD avec la télécommande One4All
- La lumière blue 24p se met à clignoter sur le lecteur (je ne sais pas si votre modèle en a une..)
- Mettez votre lecteur en standby avec la télécommande Sony

J'ai remarqué qu'il était essentiel de programmer la télécommande One4All avec le code 0533 pour que cela marche (S480)

It is very important to use the 0533 setup code to setup your DVD controller - even if this code doesn't appear to work.

Otherwise, the procedure fails. In my case, pressing on the number 5 powered the Blu-ray player on and off.. using 0533 did the trick.

I share the point of view of the writer: IMHO calendar menu should be close to the clock a to the right-most end of the menu bar.

I tried what you suggest (: double-click, hold command key, click-n-drag) but this doesn't work: opens and closes the view, then command-click-n-hold opens once more the calendar but the menubar icon is not moving.

Am I missing something?

@mrfusion: sorry to hear that. Thanks for your comment.

Interesting. Had to discover it the hard way today.


Can't select the Photo Album Camera Roll from Instagram

Thanks for your comment and for the link Chris.
I came to the same conclusion, and that's what I'd meant by "quitting the Photo app from the active apps bar".
:)

Safari for iPhone ignores viewport settings on .mobi domains

@Chris Blown: you are right. Thanks for your comment.

As of today, I still haven't found any documentation explaining this behaviour.


Safari for iPhone ignores viewport settings on .mobi domains

I'm glad I found this post, I thought I was going mad!

While I understand the reasoning behind why Apple might do this, changing behaviour purely based on the domain is madness.

You should at least be able to override it. I'd suggest the presence of a meta viewport should tell Safari "hey, I know what I am doing, let me be". If the meta viewport is missing sure then lock it down to 100% or whatever its _actually_ doing.

The iTunes Store's missing songs

it is a trap, most of music purchased on itunes still cant play on my MP3 player, they are still drm protected. i have to convert itunes music to mp3 with some music converter, which really takes time and effort. i hate itunes.


iPod Touch first impressions

I have found out to my cost that the devices have been sabotaged in such a way that only ITunes can be used on only one computer for one device. Also the players are unusable from Linux (Encrypted
protocol) so that it is impossible to use them with winamp + mlipod as in the past.


iPod Touch first impressions

Ipod touch is a great device. I love the display too. Resolution is great. But the problems with languages aren't funny...


How to fix a Nik Software plug-in crash in Snow Leopard

NIK Silver Efex has been crashing my CS3 ever since I upgraded to Snow Leopard. I've tried reinstalling everything, downloading a new copy of Silver Efex, removing duplicate fonts, creating a new login user on my Mac (both suggestions from NIK Support), and now I've tried your recommendation. But, NIK still crashes CS3. If I remove NIK completely (something NIK's "Uninstall" feature somehow neglects to do), CS3 runs great.

Is this problem common with NIK and Snow Leopard? They don't seem to want to get back to me on this anymore.


Using Tumblr as a travel log

Thanks @Janik for your comments.

Never thought of that. I'll take a look at how I can make a Tumblr theme out of Sravana and let you know.


Using Tumblr as a travel log

Hi,

I'm preparing my trip to india, nepal and cambodja! Off course a nice travel blog is good to keep the people at home up to date.

I'm looking for a nice theme now, and came across your sravana.us! I really like it, any chance I can use your homemade theme?

Greetings,

Hi there,

You Tumblrs are great for showcasing the right away of using travel guide from net. Well, the polymorphic connectivity is one of the best things I liked over here.

Safari for iPhone ignores viewport settings on .mobi domains

@Ronan Cremin: thanks for confirming this.

The reason why I mentionned the viewport meta tag, is that whatever the settings were (size, scaling, etc.) Safari for iPhone had its own rendering interpretation when the page was requested from the .mobi TLD. The rendering was different when requested from the .com TLD (or the IP address) - namely, the viewport settings were honored.

Thanks again for your comments.


Safari for iPhone ignores viewport settings on .mobi domains

David,

I have to admit that on first reading this I thought there was no way that it could be true.

So we tried testing it here at dotMobi and can confirm that your experience is repeatable—we tried the same page with a .mobi address, a .com address and a local intranet address (no top level domain suffix) on a 3GS.

That said, the effect doesn't appear to have anything to do with the viewport tag—we experienced the same effect without it. It's difficult to guess what Apple is at here, and why they choose to render the page slightly differently based on the TLD. On the plus side it does suggest that they are trying to optimize the rendering of the page if they believe it's mobile-friendly, which sounds like a good thing.

Interesting sleuthing, thanks for sharing.

Ronan Cremin, dotMobi


Safari for iPhone ignores viewport settings on .mobi domains

Wow, that's really weird, but incredibly handy to know - especially like you say - not being an obvious thing to debug or understand. I wonder what made them implement it like that?


.Mac calendar synchronisation problem in Leopard

I had this same problem with Contacts [only].

Stephanie's post in #3 above worked for me also. I had tried a number of steps in the Apple forums.

My mistake, I believe, is in my reluctance to replace the MobileMe data in the cloud with the data that was on my Mac Mini [Snow Leopard] (my "sync/push server"). The Mac Pro (Leopard) silently stopped synching Contacts with the rest of my stuff - iPhone, Mac Mini, Macbook Pro.

Using Stephanie's one minute suggestion I have resolved the problem. Had that not worked then I'd have had to run through the full solution in this blog.

Thanks very much all. It has saved me days of grief :-)


Transcending CSS

Great book, helped my CSS a whole lot.


Watch that trailing slash

I am lost, I noticed google webmaster tools has me indexed with the trailing slash half of the time and because I am using wordpress on a windows server I am having a hard time fixing the issue. So I am trying to figure out if I should (for SEO purposes) use the slash even though none of my backlinks point that way.
Any help on this would be much appreciated.
thanks


Mail 10.6 “Copy Address” fix

@Alexander MacDougall: did you copy the whole command?

defaults write com.apple.mail AddressesIncludeNameOnPasteboard -bool NO

The file is located in /usr/bin/defaults which should be in your path. Try,

/usr/bin/defaults write com.apple.mail AddressesIncludeNameOnPasteboard -bool NO

(all on the same line)

I ♥ my {international} Kindle

@Mary: the only way to activate your Kindle (International version) if you are out of the US is to use Audible's File Manager software.

The caveat is that it runs only on Windows, so if you are using a Mac, you'll need to run it under Parallels or VMWare.

The problem is that web browsing is deactivated (restricted) out of the US, so that the Kindle can't reach Audible's servers for activation.

More info on the Kindle's forum http://ro.ess.li/kindle/audible/

Gentle upgrade to Snow Leopard (Mac OS 10.6)

Thanks for the great info. On 10/30/09 I downloaded all the required Canon drivers and applications to use Pixma MP980 in Snow Leopard.

@grj I'm not sure, I need to test a border case such as the one you mention.

Try contacting the author, he might have an answer?


iPhone battery packs: Mophie Juice Pack Air vs FastMac iV

@Doug I believe the only one that could be compatible with a car mount woud be the FastMac. But then it would depend on the form factor of the car mount.

The FastMac mounts with the iPhone in a Dock.

The Mophie's lack the iPod connector.


.Mac calendar synchronisation problem in Leopard

@Michael you're welcome - glad it worked out for you :)


iPhone battery packs: Mophie Juice Pack Air vs FastMac iV

Hi,
I have an iPhone 3GS and am considering buying an external battery pack for it. From what I've read above it appears that the Mophie Juice Pack Air is about 2 ounces, while the Mophie Juice Pack is about 3 ounces, and the FastMac IV is about 4 ounces. I don't own any of these prodcts, yet, but don't feel that the weight factor is significant for me. I wish Apple built the iPhone with a faster CPU and more RAM and the ability to handle media on the Adobe Flash Player, thus justifying the need for more "horsepower under the hood."
I am concerned about safety of my 32GB device and compatibility of any of these three batteries with a car mount.

Get your MacBook to sleep smart

How does Smartsleep react to a situation when you close your Mac at say 22% battery power and let it closed for a weekend? Is it that smart to wake up and hibernate, or does the battery run out of power?

Gentle upgrade to Snow Leopard (Mac OS 10.6)

My AudiaHijack Pro was not compatible and wasn’t upgraded, in fact on your list of Snow Leopard Compatibility List. apps it indicated it wasn’t compatible and an upgrade was forth coming. Also Snow Leopard didn’t create a root folder to indicate which apps weren’t compatible. I discover those apps when I use them ie. . . TuneTools . . ..

Up to each and everyone to figure out if the difference is significative…

My 2 cents worth of iPhone tips for Switzerland

Just thought you'd like to know in case you want to revisit and review:
Recent Versions, Press Releases MobileSyncBrowser 3.0 is the latest and most advanced version of the iPhone backup utility. Reviews for MobileSyncBrowser have been consistently positive, and when a user encounters a glitch, MSB's developer, Vaughn S. Cordero, avails himself by phone or email to help the customer step by step. Who uses MSB? Setting aside the argument that it is better to have a backup and not need it, than to need it and not have it, the original MSB users ranged from business executives who need to keep track of and produce hard-copy evidence of their communications, to the iPhone owner whose device was stolen or broken, to concerned parents wanting to keep track of their children's online contacts and friendships, and there's a commercial version being developed for grand-scale use regarding levels of information gathering, geared towards people who need MSB for legal proceedings or investigations. MobileSyncBrowser 3.0, available adds compatibility with iPhone OS 3.0 and was completely rewritten to provide better performance and enhanced stability. Technical Contact: Vaughn S.Cordero, email audiobinder at mac dot com
MobileSyncBrowser 3.1b1 This upgraded version of the application is available as pre-release software and has been said to be "better, faster, and more stable". It appeared barely five weeks after the release of MobileSyncBrowser 3.0. This latest edition of MSB, provides a multi-threaded experience, and is noticeable more stable and faster than the previous generations. MSB 3.1b1, marks a second milestone, leveraging the modularity to add background processing and caching so there's no waiting involved due to the extended scanning required for MSB Plus features. 3.1b1 also presents a cache file to the device backups which speeds subsequent visits to an unchanged backup; it alsoincludes fixes for cosmetic reasons and functional purposes. These include an improved handling of similar and alphanumeric addresses in the SMS Convo Lists; improved navigation on systems with 9+ backups where portions of the Categories list would scroll up out of view making them seem "unavailable"; the user should know that single click, double click and alt-click actions have different responses and a little experimentation is required. MobileSyncBrowser (MSB) 3.1b1 has been tested for iPhone OS 3.1b2 and iTunes 8.2.1 compatibility. An important thing to remember is that, as a prerelease software, 3.1b1 could behave in surprising ways; users are encouraged to take sensible precautions before and while operating. The developer assumes no responsibility whatsoever for the use of prerelease software, so prospective clients should try out MSB before purchase in order to familiarize themselves with its interface, and ensure the application works for them. MSB 3.1b1 is stable and recommended for developers and general users who have specific issues with the current MSB. Feedback is always appreciated. Important note: 3.1 beta releases (e.g. 3.1b1) users should bear in mind that, as pre-release test copies, they are limited to running for a maximum of 15 days, when the next test cycle begins. If a user prefers the 3.1 versions, they should download release 3.1b2 currently on the beta page for MSB at http://mobilesyncbrowser.com/beta or download the current 3.0.11 release which does not have this testing limit.

My 2 cents worth of iPhone tips for Switzerland

From the Public Relations Office of MobileSyncBrowser: As your website is in touch with the news about iPhone Technology and Applications, I'm writing to tell you about the release of MobileSync Browser (MSB) 3.0, as well as MSB 3.1b1, the exclusive pre-release version of this application.
MobileSyncBrowser is used to retrieve data automatically stored inside iTunes every time the iPhone was synchronized to the computer. MSB will recover all information, notes, contacts, call history and SMS messages, in case the device gets lost, broken or stolen. Visit MSB at: http://homepage.mac.com/vaughn/msync/
Users all over the world contact developer Vaughn S. Cordero to thank him and praise MSB for helping them evade the negative effects of losing all their information.
I'm attaching the press release and/or an informational document that outlines all the useful characteristics of MSB, now in its third generation. You are welcome to download the free trial; and please, would you kindly write a review or use the attached information to let your readers know about MobileSyncBrowser?
In addition to English, MSB includes Spanish, French and German support when it runs on systems in those languages. Be aware that MSB will work for iPhones in any language; however, the application contains those four to display the menus and the text. For instance, if you use MSB for an Italian iPhone, the information will display in Italian because MSB does not include that language support.
If you have questions or comments, please write back directly to Vaughn at audiobinder@mac.com, or reply to my email. Thank you for your help. -- Madeleine D. Quilichini, e: mad_copy@yahoo.com

iPhone v3.0 OS MMS and tethering

@chrisb63: yes, Swisscom has published the following:

Use your iPhone 3G as a modem.

Thanks to tethering, you will also be able to use your iPhone 3G as a modem for your notebook from 3 July 2009. Billing for data transmission will be based on the inclusive data volume of your surf subscription.

For frequent users, an additional data option with unlimited data volume**** (use in Switzerland) will be offered for CHF 59.- per month from the beginning of August 2009.

As of 3 July, you will be able to configure your iPhone 3G for tethering via iTunes free of charge.

**** In order to maintain service quality for all customers, Swisscom will reduce transfer speed if a customer exceeds 10GB in one month or will take other appropriate action. If there are signs of such activity, Swisscom reserves the right to exclude the subscription from normal private usage. Roaming charges are incurred for use abroad.

iPhone v3.0 OS MMS and tethering

Do we know by now, how is this billed ?


iPhone v3.0 OS MMS and tethering

I've got this running on a 3G using the site you described. I'm finding however that tethered over USB the iPhone does not keep its charge level when using the internet but drains pretty quickly. This makes it of pretty limited use to me.

Anybody else have this problem or a solution?


iPhone v3.0 OS MMS and tethering

@chrisb63 You're welcome. It works on non jailbroken phones. It is just a new set of settings.


iPhone v3.0 OS MMS and tethering

thanks for the tip.
Just to make sure, this will work on a 3G iPhone not jailbroken ?


iPhone v3.0 OS MMS and tethering

@Coup's This is not clear yet, but I suspect (I hope) your quota will be used prior to billing you extra costs.

I believe this is what Swisscom does with their WiFi HotSpots. They deduct the used bandwidth from your quota before billing you for the remaining usage.


iPhone v3.0 OS MMS and tethering

Hi,
Somebody knows if Swisscom will account the data used using tethering in our 250 Mb quota or will we have to pay extra bucks?

An evening with Violeta

I promise this is my last post for Mario Benedetti. The best obituary in English I found for him came from Cuba (!). Here is the link if you are sitll interested...

http://www.cubasi.cu/desktopdefault.aspx?spk=160&clk=236038&lk=2&ck=120702&spka=35


An evening with Violeta

Finally I managed to find some Mario Benedetti translations to English. I believe poems are impossible to translate, they only could be rewritten sometimes. But you can have a taste below.

M. Benedetti was exiled from Uruguay for many years since he was a strong critic of military dictatorship and of the influence of US on Latin America. What I loved about him is that he stayed being optimistic until the end of his life.

So, another poem, now in English.


Don´t Save Yourself

Mario Benedetti

Don't Save yourself,
Don´t be immobile
On the edge of the road,
Don't freeze the joy,
Don't love with reluctance,
Don't save yourself now
or ever,
Don't save yourself,
Don't fill with calm,
Don't reserve of the world
Just a calm place,
Don't let fall your lids
Heavy as trials,
Don´t speak without lips,
Don't fall asleep without sleepiness,
Don't think of you without blood,
Don't judge yourself without time.

But if in spite of everything
You cannot avoid it
And you freeze the joy,
And you love with reluctance,
And you save yourself now,
And you full with calm,
And you reserve of the world
Just a calm place,
And you let fall your lids
Heavy as trials,
And you speak without lips,
And you fall asleep without sleepiness,
And you think yourself without blood,
And you judge yourself without time,
And you are immobile
On the edge of the road,
And you save yourself,
Then
Don't stay with me.



An evening with Violeta

Thanks for the poem Lavinia, it is beautiful even with my faint notions of Spanish.

It is all the more dramatic in view of the context.


An evening with Violeta

Forgot to tell that Mario Benedetti died the day before I posted this last comment.


An evening with Violeta

David, I found this today (tomorrow for you since I am 5 hours after you).

I would never ever be able to translate this to English nor to French, nor to any other language, but I just hope you can follow these words in Spanish. But definitely it is a turning point... It is like a bottle in an ocean..

Title: In defense of happiness

Mario Benedetti


Defender la alegría como una trinchera
defenderla del escándalo y la rutina
de la miseria y los miserables
de las ausencias transitorias
y las definitivas

defender la alegría como un principio
defenderla del pasmo y las pesadillas
de los neutrales y de los neutrones
de las dulces infamias
y los graves diagnósticos

defender la alegría como una bandera
defenderla del rayo y la melancolía
de los ingenuos y de los canallas
de la retórica y los paros cardiacos
de las endemias y las academias

defender la alegría como un destino
defenderla del fuego y de los bomberos
de los suicidas y los homicidas
de las vacaciones y del agobio
de la obligación de estar alegres

defender la alegría como una certeza
defenderla del óxido y de la roña
de la famosa pátina del tiempo
del relente y del oportunismo
de los proxenetas de la risa

defender la alegría como un derecho
defenderla de dios y del invierno
de las mayúsculas y de la muerte
de los apellidos y las lástimas
del azar
y también de la alegría

.Mac calendar synchronisation problem in Leopard

@Chad: If I understand you correctly, you need to synchronise your Mac with the data on Mobile Me, replacing the relevant data on your computer (calendar, bookmarks or whatever) with the data in the cloud.

You should find the information you require on Apple's website:

Hope this helps.

David, I am posting a poem from an Uruguaian writer which describes perfectly, in latin spanish the Latin (South) American spirit.

Thanks for saying all you wrote about Violeta Parra and the Spanish from Latin America. We are deeply touched.

Lavinia

EL SUR TAMBIEN EXISTE

Mario Benedetti

Con su ritual de acero
sus grandes chimeneas
sus sabios clandestinos
su canto de sirenas
sus cielos de neón
sus ventanas navideñas
su culto a dios padre
y de las charreteras
con sus llaves del reino
el norte es el que ordena
pero aquí abajo abajo
el hambre disponible
recorre el fruto amargo
de lo que otros deciden
mientras que el tiempo pasa
y pasan los desfiles
y se hacen otras cosas
que el norte no prohíbe
con su esperanza dura
el sur también existe

con sus predicadores
sus gases que envenenan
su escuela de chicago
sus dueños de la tierra
con sus trapos de lujo
y su pobre osamenta
sus defensas gastadas
sus gastos de defensa
son su gesta invasora
el norte es el que ordena

pero aquí abajo abajo
cada uno en su escondite
hay hombres y mujeres
que saben a qué asirse
aprovechando el sol
y también los eclipses
apartando lo inútil
y usando lo que sirve
con su fe veterana
el sur también existe

con su corno francés
y su academia sueca
su salsa americana
y sus llaves inglesas
con todos sus misiles
y sus enciclopedias
su guerra de galaxias
y su saña opulenta
con todos sus laureles
el norte es el que ordena

pero aquí abajo abajo
cerca de las raíces
es donde la memoria
ningún recuerdo omite
y hay quienes se desmueren
y hay quienes se desviven
y así entre todos logran
lo que era un imposible
que todo el mundo sepa
que el sur también existe.


Mobile Aperture

My strategy is to not be mad after Joe Schorr and the Aperture team for taking so long to release something that actually works for other than the independant wedding photographer. Then, go with the flow and consider — unless you're an embedded photog reporting from Kabul — that you're better off using your eyes and lenses while on the road instead of spending time pushing pixels on a screen.

My library lives in my studio and is very happy there. Abroad, I carry a Hyperdrive to backup my cards and that's about it. If I'm on assignment and need to shoot tethered, I create a specific Aperture project then copy it back to my main library when back in the studio (drag and drop works well for this).

Traveling with your entire photo library is like carrying around your entire music library, will you listen to it all?

My 2 cents...

You are right to point this out. I left it out of the above tutorial beacuse none of its URLs appear in the address bar.

I believe you could symlink a`mt-static` folder into your blog's folder, and it should work just fine.

The configuration takes relative paths too (you don't have to specify a full URL):

StaticWebPath  /mt-static/

So creating a symlink like,

ln -s /somewhere/on/your/disk/mt-static/ /your/blog/mt-static/

should do the trick.

WRT StyleCatcher, I'm not sure about it's default behaviour. I'll give it a look.


Use Apache's mod_rewrite for beautiful MovableType URLs

Thanks for the tutorial David, it helped me a lot.
However, how do you deal with the mt-static folder. Now that it is symlinked in the cgi-bin folder, It seems like I can't point to it from my new domain (I'm using MT's StyleCatcher which creates a @import in my CSS to a style inside mt-static.).

Using your technique, should one have a separate mt-static folder per domain/blog? Or could one simply create a symlink of the mt-static folder somewhere out of the cgi-bin folder? Not sure if I'm very clear...

Thanks again! // e

Use Apache's mod_rewrite for beautiful MovableType URLs

Thanks for the tutorial. Is there any easy-to-understand tutorial on symlink that might make this a little more accessible to those of us who are petrified of the command line?

I've done clean tag-search URLs through .htaccess before, but with my current installation structure (domain1.com and domain2.com using an MT installation in user.host.com), the old rewrite rules don't seem to work. This looks to be a solution, but I'm not familiar with symlink.

I have Greg's same exact problem. The good data is on mobileme and my iphone, with healthy syncing between the two. But my iCal in OS X 10.5.5 is way out of date and I'd just like to replace it with what's on mobileme. Yet I get the "inconsistent data" message when I try to reset data from mobileme. Annoying.


Use Apache's mod_rewrite for beautiful MovableType URLs

Great tutorial. I've got the same issue, a separate domain for a single MT install driving multiple blogs.

I want to your technique for one of the blogs I've got running, but don't want to break the others.

Say I've got Movable Type installed at:

http://mt.example.com/

publishing different blogs to different domains (all on the same server):

http://domain1.com/
http://domain2.com/
http://domain3.com/

If I create a symlink between...

mt.example.com/cgi-bin and domain1.com/cgi-bin

...what happens with the other domains that are referencing mt.example.com/cgi-bin? Will they still work as usual with the ugly urls or will they break?

Thanks.

.Mac calendar synchronisation problem in Leopard

@David: I've updated the MobileMe System prefs several times ... I'm running 10.5.5. I've completely erased my iSync device list, as I no longer need to sync my trusty SE600i via Bluetooth (which was a painless and reliable process >_

Taking a superficial look at the solutions, my safest bet would be to copy --by hand-- my calendars and contact details from the phone to the iMac; as the trend in the posted solutions is to "sync from scratch" online from the "definitive" copy on the computer.

I'm also tempted to leave things as they are for the moment, as the iPhone/MobileMe relationship is so healthy. Not happy that my iMac can't join in as a third party!

Also, I may have to reinstall OSX --again-- as I've just finished trouble-shooting some nasty wireless networking problems. This may give me a clean slate once I re-establish my, my wife's files/account status etc.


.Mac calendar synchronisation problem in Leopard

@Greg: strange. I have always had success in updating my Mac from the online (.Mac or MobileMe now) version, if the latter isn't corrupted. Which isn't the case if your iPhone and MobileMe account are syncing okay.

Have you updated the .Mac System Preference? It should read MobileMe now (Are you running Leopard? 10.5.x?)

There were some issues with 10.4 (Tiger) and MobileMe syncing - not sure if they are resolved now.

Not much help - sorry…


.Mac calendar synchronisation problem in Leopard

I've got a similar problem: just the other way around.

I have erased all the contact and calendar data on my computer and am trying to update my iMac's iCal and Address Book from Mobile Me. My iPhone and Mobile Me are syncing wonderfully; I consider them both up-to-date. Any clues?


My 2 cents worth of iPhone tips for Switzerland

@Anila: I'm not sure. Does it not charge when connected directly to the USB port of a computer? Or via the power adapter?

Try swapping it with a recent iPod's power adapter, or try another cable to make sure the problem doesn't come from the accessories rather than from the phone itself.

I've got six devices (two each Macs, iPhones and iPod touches) I like (have to) keep in sync and since Sept 2 syncs for calendars and contacts have been failing (silently). Since I discovered this three days ago, Apple support has been getting nowhere. While waiting for them to do "research" I've been doing my own and found this work around which matches my pronlem. There may be a better solution but I am not sure Apple Support will be offering it soon. I'll post the results.

iPod Touch first impressions

@Jose I agree. Actually, with all the problems the iPhone 3G is plagued with, it's a better alternative. Both in terms of battery life and overall stability.

If you are happy with your current cellphone, and don't have sync issues, stick with it and buy an iPod Touch.
(who's price might significatively drop this month if you believe the rumours).

Not to mention, the iPhone probably is the worse cameraphone I have ever seen.


iPod Touch first impressions

I just recently bought an iPod Touch, and while it isn't the newest gadget on the block anymore, it is still one of the best. I love the touch screen as well as the easy to use features. The wiFi aspect is also phenomenal.

@djeni the idea is to remove the file named "com.micromat.Syphone.plist" from your ~/Library/Preferences folder before launching the application.

Yes MSB does ask for a donation before letting you backup anything. But it's worth it. Just give him what you think the application deserves. It's a great little application, stable and does just the job. It exports the data in a tab separated format for reuse in a spreadsheet or by any other programme.

Check out also Ecamm's MegaPhone which lets you access your iPod Touch/iPhone directly. You can also use it to export SMSs, call log etc. I find it ideal to transfer the images I received by MMS from my iPhone to my Mac. Brilliant.

10.5.2 freezes

I have been experiencing the sudden freeze up of Leopard ever since upgrading to 10.5.2 back in February. After reviewing the kernel crisis log with a fella at the Apple genius bar at our local store, I was told my MacBook Pro probably has a problem with the ram. I installed new ram and still have the same symptoms, e.g. random freeze ups that occur sometimes when I'm first bootin up, other times after several hours of use.

I wonder if Apple really knows there is a problem with Leopard vis-a-vis MacBook Pro freez ups and Leopard 10.5.2. Can anyone confirm a documented conversation with Apple's technical staff on this issue?

If not, can someone advise as to how to go about getting in touch with the Apple technical people?

I am a 7 day old Mac virgin. Top of the range MAC BOOK PRO and 3 freezes - this bug is all over the web (90,000 + hits if you search for 10.5.2 freezes)..

3 calls to Apple support and they acknowledge a problem, one guy confessed they (Apple) are not near a fix and stumped.. SAD..

The random shutdowns seem related to a battery problem. The problem disappeared after switching to a new battery.

.Mac calendar synchronisation problem in Leopard

I was just running into the same problem but after reading this post I was able to fix it in 1 minute.

I simply re-created the calendar data from my main machine (which holds the most up to date calendars) overwriting the old calendar data on .Mac. I just used the regular advanced feature for that. Afterwards I was able to sync the re-written calender data onto my MacBook PRO.

While this may not work for everybody it is a fast thing to try before you hit the command line purging this manually.

Hope this may be helpful for some

Getting GrowlMail to work

A nice way to change your plist files is with Pref Setter.
Then you can see what your actually changing and easily re-change it you want.

However, I did this

defaults write com.apple.mail EnableBundles 1
defaults write com.apple.mail BundleCompatibilityVersion 2

and my Growlmail still dosn't work. Its not in the System Prefs > Growl > Application, but it does show up in the mail application. No notification, though. Any other ideas? Thanks!


10.5.2 freezes

As this issue is growing, an interesting fix was posted on Apple Discussions which you might want to try if you are running into this problem:

Steve Eugene posted the following:

This is a HARDWARE problem!
After playing around with removing the battery and noticing that this often returned functionality to the keyboard I surmised that this had some sort of physical aspect.
Sure enough, there is a section of copper colored tape/wiring exposed in the batter slot that is slightly bowed where it's smallest.
When I depressed this with my finger tip on this portion to basically flatten it out flush against the housing; I found that all functionality was restored!

As amazing as it sounds, it has actually worked for a number of readers who were suffering from this issue.

Hi there D,

10.5.2 upgrade is terrible. Same as You, I've been completely confident in using the Software Update without any hesitations, but now ...

I mean, my MBP is freezing at least once per day, my Garageband is unusable, Safari chrashes so often that I'm switching to Firefox again ....WTF.

And one can only dream of the times when I had like 50-100 _working_ days of uptime on my PB G4.

I'm not upgrading anymore before some time period given to see what the other (un)lucky users are reporting.

Thanks for the tips, but in my case it didn't help :(


Airport Disk hangs logout if not unmounted

I've been having this exact problem, but it's not Leopard. It started with the 10.4.0 update to Tiger and it's annoying. I've been scanning all the log files and can't seem to find any real hints. I get

Mar  1 10:55:38 Macintosh login[2558]: DEAD_PROCESS: 2558 ttys000
Mar 1 10:59:24 Macintosh loginwindow[2511]: DEAD_PROCESS: 0 console

The time difference between those two stamps is how long it hangs on the blue screen before going to the login screen.
Login is very snappy, but logout takes forever (3.5 minutes sometimes) As with Anand's comment if I turn off Airport before logging out it is a few seconds before getting the login screen.


10.5.2 freezes

Same here. Freezes started happening after the graphic update. Random but seem to be triggered by Safari + running on battery. I repaired permissions and freezes stopped for 3 days but then again it froze the last night :(

I feel exactly as you said -- it's sad to lose trust in a reliable tool (MacBook Pro).

I hope for a fix from Apple...


10.5.2 freezes

I hear you man. Same problem here. As a "switcher," I'm kind of disappointed in OS X, given this freezing issue.

I hope they come up with a fix soon.


10.5.2 freezes

Sadly, the freezes are still occuring. They usually happen when I'm running on battery power, whatever the application running.

If Apple doesn't come out with a solution quickly, my only choice will be to clean install 10.5.1 and wait.

It really makes me feel angry.

On the gripe level, please be aware that the SiliconImage ExpressCard 34 eSATA host controller generates kernel panics under Leopard when inserted or ejected from my MacBook Pro. The current driver is v1.1.9 and this includes cards sold by Sonnet and LaCie. Sucks.

Try this recompiled version of GrowlMail: http://www.mediafire.com/?29l7bt4xe7c

You'll need to set to true the EnableBundles property of your Mail preferences (~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.mail.plist)

Please note that this is not an official version, and hence not supported, so don't bother the developers. Nevertheless, it seems to do the job. You can't select/deselect the accounts to monitor in the Preference pane. All accounts are active be default.

Treat this as an interim solution until the official version becomes available (it is being completely rewritten to account for changes in Leopard). I'm currently running it with Growl 1.1.2 on Mac OS 10.5.2.

Thanks for posting this article on how your use SoftRaid and Super Duper. (I found you after plugging in several combinations of keywords into Google - whew!)

This didn't work for me. Whatever I did in Terminal did SOMETHING because the next time I opened Mail it told me that the GrowlMail app was incompatible and it would be deactivated... the same msg I got the first time I booted up Leopard.

This is on a brand new Mac with a Clean Leopard Install.

Any other suggestions? I miss my Growl notifications.

@JL: if I was you, I would stay away from anything with an Apple on it.

I agree that iTunes' library sharing is poor to say the least, but your comment doesn't bring anything new or constructive to the discussion.

You sound like a Troll to me.


iPod Touch first impressions

I live in France and work in Geneva.
While I was in Knoxville TN Apple Store, I bought two Ipod Touch players, and a MacBook (The MacBook is fine except I have to cough up 200Eu to buy Lepoard a week after I bought it). I was going to give the Itouch players as presents for Christmas to my daughter and wife.
However I have found out to my cost that the devices have been sabotaged in such a way that only ITunes can be used on only one computer for one device. Also the players are unusable from Linux (Encrypted
protocol) so that it is impossible to use them with winamp + mlipod as in the past. In my opinion I was sold these devices under false pretenses, they are simply junk, there should be a large warning written on the packet:
WARNING THESE DEVICES ARE BRAIN DEAD AND NEED ITUNES BLOATWARE.
My daughter runs Ubuntu/Windows Dual Boot, I run Ubuntu,
MaxOs (on my new MacBook) and Windows. There are 6 computers in my house, 3 operating systems and two ITouches; the horrible impossible mess created by Itunes
and the ridiculous way it is impossible to use windows and MacOs (Incompatible file systems!!) or even two windows computers (One Library) is simply a dirty trick from Apple. Rest assured that I will tell others what Apple is up to, they wont sell any more of that junk to the people I know. The web is now full of complaints about IPhone and ITouch:
http://www.blogitouch.fr/2007/09/17/itunes-obligatoire-pour-les-nouveaux-ipod/
- this explains how the Itouch has been sabotaged and how to fix it with a jailbreak
or
http://www.calacanis.com/
- are some examples of the troubles the poor suckers had who own two computers, hell they don't have two ITouches
then they would be in real trouble.
Apple is shooting itself in the foot.
Any one want a couple of new ITouches going cheap I am not dishonest enough not tell tell them what a load of rubbish they are.

Getting GrowlMail to work

Ok, growl now presents in mail and mail presents in growl.
What i have to do now to have those notifications working? :(


Getting GrowlMail to work

Thanks! Worked like a charm. :D


Getting GrowlMail to work

@Elo: Mac OS X 10.5's Mail.app requires bundle version 3 or greater. You can try the following command to enable GrowlMail:

defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.mail EnableBundles -bool YES
defaults write com.apple.mail BundleCompatibilityVersion -int 3

Or, download the script from http://trac.growl.info/changeset/4693

There is an interesting AppleScript alternative that is described in a blog post called "Growl, Mail.app and AppleScript" by Kevin Way.


Getting GrowlMail to work

and with Leopard? what command must be written? because Mail does not recognize growlmail under Leopard...

thanks


Getting GrowlMail to work

Took me quite a bit of digging, or at least more than it should have to find this tidbit. Thank you so much! Now if the Growl devs would include this information, I think a lot of people would be much less frustrated by "Growl/Mail/GrowlMail/etc" not working.


Getting GrowlMail to work

It worked! Thank you. :-D


Backup revisited

@Adriano: did you quite all running apps? If so, you probably have a service accessing the drive (filesharing most probably).

Here are the steps I follow on my Mac OS X Server:

1. Open server Admin;
2. Stop file sharing services (AFP, Windows);
3. Open SoftRAID;
4. Split MIrror Volume Backup into “Read-only Secondary Disk��?. Two disks with the same name will appear in the Finder. One has a padlock, that is the secondary drive;
5. Unmount the padlocked volume and remove physically the disk from the system;
6. Insert the other secondary disk. It will appear as locked volume in SoftRAID;
8. Click it and select "Convert Read-only Secondary Drive" from the Volume menu;
9. A dialog box will ask you what to do with it. Select “Add to original mirror��?. The secondary disk will then synched;
10. Restart file sharing services and resume normal life.

If you're not running Mac OS Server, turn the file sharing services off from the System Preferences > Sharing pane.


Backup revisited

I've been using softraid, but I'm unable to split a mirror drive as you describe. I get a "Drive in use" message. Any idea?

@Zeljko: (No problem - I should speak German..)

I'm not sure. I guess you could try through a reseller (http://wheretobuy.apple.com/Catalog.html), but they probably restrict their sales to the US.


Getting GrowlMail to work

Works like a dream and thanks for sharing :-)


iPod Touch first impressions

Sorry David, i thought you talk German.
Do you know if there's any possibility to order the iPod in the US? Its is much cheaper over there.

Cheers


iPod Touch first impressions

@ Zeljko: in English please.. :/ I'm not sure I understand your question.

Are you asking if I ordered my iPod Touch in the US? ordered it from the Swiss Apple Store the day following it's announcement.

Getting GrowlMail to work

@firebirdc5: are you running the latest version? Check for other Mail add-ons, font managers, or haxies you may have installed and deactivate them temporarily. Other users are having similar problems. Check this thread http://tinyurl.com/2c5x4q (you could try to downgrade to the previous version 0.76)

@smanny: you need to open the Terminal application which is located in the Utilities folder of your Applications folder and type in the two commands.


Getting GrowlMail to work

Hey, I'm really new at this stuff...
what do you mean with I have to run those commands - where? who can help?
thanx a lot in advance ;-)


Getting GrowlMail to work

That seemed to fix growl but now when I launch mail.app as soon as a notification tries to go out mail.app crashes. The only way to get it to stop crashing is to disable the above changes. Anyone else have that?


iPod Touch first impressions

Me too..

Dear David

Finding a solution for you is important to me, so I have requested assistance with the issue you reported. You will receive an email after the matter has been investigated and further information is available.

Thank you for your patience. Apple wants your iTunes experience to be as enjoyable as possible.

Sincerely,

Concerning the Wi-Fi Music Store language issues, I received a reply from Apple Support saying that this has been bumped up to the developers. Hopefully it will be fixed. But let's consider ourselves lucky, the menus could have been in Swedish. No one knows where Switzerland is anyway. ;)

iPod Touch first impressions

You can use iTunes to verify that all the music, videos, and other items you bought from the iTunes Wi-Fi Music Store are in your iTunes library. You might want to do this if a download was interrupted. Here's how:

1. In iTunes, choose Store > Check for Purchases.
2. Enter your iTunes Store account ID and password, then click Check.
3. Purchases not yet on your computer will be downloaded.

More info here:

iPod Touch first impressions

No. Unfortunately, not yet. The firmware upgrade didn't change anything. I suspect the problem lies somehow on the server side.

I 've just received the invoices relative to my purchases on the WiFi Store: in German (sigh). I contacted client support and see what they'll come back with.

Enjoy your iPod Touch. It really is awesome.


iPod Touch first impressions

I'm in Canada, and my iPod touch just shipped yesterday. It sounds like an awesome tool. The language problem with the WiFi store sounds VERY annoying - have you found a solution yet? They just released a new firmware (1.1.1) - that might solve the problem.

Airport Disk hangs logout if not unmounted

Hi

I have a related problem. Not only does my logout hang, but my logins hang as well.

The only way I can login is to turn off the airport extreme. Or I should turn off my airport before I logout each time - both of which SUCK.

I have tried your suggestion and that did not fix the problem.

Any other tips?


Use Apache's mod_rewrite for beautiful MovableType URLs

This is close to what I have been looking for. The problem is that the keywords in your urls are separated by underscores, which almost defeat the purpose of rewriting the urls. I think most people rewrite their urls for search engines and the little extra boost they give.


Airport Disk hangs logout if not unmounted

EXCELLENT!! I have been looking for those wise words for a couple of weeks now.
Its ridiculously tedious searching for various mac issues on the web as well as apple's own "knowledge base". As a long time windows admin, now apple addict, this is the one place apple needs to look MS over the shoulder, and implement something similar on their website. The MS knowledge base and TechNet for pro's are far easier to search through and find useful info in.
Anyway, many thanks for posting your experience here.
Best regards,
Kim


Safari UTF-8 rendering glitch fixed in WebKit nightly build

Thanks Adam, your tip works like a charm. Actually, I did previously try it but I didn't remove the character 'x' following the backslash and hence it didn't work.
Make sure you use,

content: "\201c"

instead of,
content: "\x201c"

Note: TextMate encodes in hex with the "x"


Safari UTF-8 rendering glitch fixed in WebKit nightly build

I've just been having the same problem. My solution was to escape the UTF-8 characters in the CSS file; for example, rather than using

content: "“"

or similar, use
content: "\201C"

It doesn't cure the problem, but it works in all the browsers I've tested without needing to play around with MIME types or conditional rules.

Swiss french speak French

Symantec is doing involuntary Multilanguage interactions with its clients: Last year, I bought a French version of Norton antivirus in a Swiss store. Yesterday I was trying to renew the license. First I click yes on the Norton invite would you like to renew your license?. I was quite surprise to get a page in German which was invited me to update a German version of Norton antivirus. It was simply impossible to find a way to switch to a French page in order to update my French version of Norton... Anyway, after a short research on Symantec website, I finally found that in the French version of the site, the client may choose other French-speaking countries, i.e Switzerland, cool! I renewed the license there and was quite happy to receive a confirmation in a language that I guess was something like Finnish !!! Of course I paid the new license but the new code is systematically rejected when I try to enter it in Norton... :-(


Multiple iTunes librairies

Few and far apart. I only sync my calendar and contact info with my iPods.

This results from the fact that my truly mobile iPod is a 1Gb Nano I picked up at a slashed price just before the 2nd generation Nanos were released, and such little storage requires manual syncing. My other iPod is a 30Gb 3G that sits in the car, and only make his way back home before a long trip in the car.

iPod syncing has always been an issue with me as it relies on a single library to perform at its best. Mine gets hooked up to two desktop Macs and a MBP on a weekly basis, so I quickly disabled the music/playlist/podcast syncing. I don't maintain consistent libraries over all the computers I use. The only library I try to maintain up-to-date is my home Airport Disk shared one. I regularly drag my new tracks to it, but I haven't yet found n efficient way of doing so. I have a playlist on my MBP with the latest tracks I need to add, but you still need to export them somehow from one lib in order to import to another, which still is a drag. I'm working on an Automator script that will do it or me, but haven't got around to polishing it yet.

I would believe that using multiple libraries with an iPod is a bit like using an iPod on multiple computers, you have to switch to "Manually manage music" in the iPod's preference pane on iTunes.

So no, iPod syncing isn't a feature I use too much.


Multiple iTunes librairies

It seems like my iPod auto-syncs with the currently loaded library which confuses me slightly. Also, the selected playlists settings seem to remain on the iTunes side and not the libraries' which is also quite bizarre.

What is your experience syncing an iPod with multiple libraries?


Airport Disk hangs logout if not unmounted

Unfortunately, I was a little too enthusiastic. The problem remains until you uncheck "Disconnect from wireles networks when I log out" in the Airport Options of Network Preferences.


MacBook Pro Core 2 Duo WEP problems fixed?

Looks like apple is doing something about this.. They know it's broke, I ended up buying a new router (apple brand, of course) and everything was fixed (duh). Basically, it was bait and switch.

I posted my owes on the discussions only to have my ID discontinued without warning. After buying a MacBook Pro and a Extreme router, with apple quicktime pro, my ID has been discontinued.

man, that's evil!

Hope they fix it.. and I'm sure they can try and give me my posting privileges back...

Safari UTF-8 rendering glitch fixed in WebKit nightly build

David, that's curious! I guess I misremembered the cause for this issue. The fact that @charset isn't working in Safari 2.0 is not surprising -- support for it was only added to WebKit in September last year. The issue I mentioned, which doesn't seem to be the case in the examples you've provided, was about the character set on the main document being ignored when determining the encoding of the stylesheet. If you're really curious and interested in finding a workaround, it should be possible to work out roughly where in the archive of nightly builds the bug went away. This would make it easier to work out what the fix for the problem was and can make it simple to work backwards from there to find a workaround.

David, thanks for testing the nightly builds! If you run into any other issues which are not yet fixed, please don't hesitate to file bug reports so that they can be investigated as soon as possible.


Safari UTF-8 rendering glitch fixed in WebKit nightly build

Thanks Mark for your insight and comments. I don't know why I didn't think to use the charset property or rule before.

In html file:

<link type="text/css; charset=utf-8" rel="stylesheet" href=".." />

In external stylesheet file:

@charset "utf-8";

Unfortunately, I can't seem to get it to work properly. I added a rule to set the charset information in .htaccess as described in the W3C document FAQ: Setting charset information in .htaccess. The new http headers can be viewed with through a web-sniffer report of a css file.

AddType 'text/css; charset=UTF-8' css

The css file shows up correctly: the quotes are curly. Unfortunately, the html page isn't rendered correctly.

I wrapped up a quick set of test files to illustrate the differences with and without the charset property in the main html file and the external stylesheet file, and was surprised to see that none of them work as they should.

  1. Embedded stylesheet: works fine
  2. External stylesheet without @charset rule referenced without the charset property in link
  3. External stylesheet with @charset rule referenced without the charset property in link
  4. External stylesheet without @charset rule referenced with the charset property in link
  5. External stylesheet with @charset rule referenced with the charset property in link

All files are utf-8 encoded. All files are rendered correctly in the latest nightly build, but not in Safari 2.


Safari UTF-8 rendering glitch fixed in WebKit nightly build

I should mention that the proper solution for the CSS generated content issue would be to serve your stylesheet with a MIME type that mentions the encoding of the content. Content-type: text/css; charset=utf-8 will have your curly-quotes looking splendid in Safari 2.0 as well as the nightly builds, and is safer than relying on the specific heuristic used to determine the encoding in a stylesheet.


Safari UTF-8 rendering glitch fixed in WebKit nightly build

From memory the issue here was that external stylesheets default to the latin-1 text encoding while users assume they would default to the encoding of the document referencing them. I do not recall what the specification says about this, but I believe WebKit was updated to respect any character set specified in the HTTP headers for the stylesheet (as it always has) and fall back to the main documents encoding if one is not set. That would explain why you are seeing the correct behaviour now where it failed in the past.

The JavaScript issue sounds a bit different and I can't think of a reason for the issue off the top of my head. Since it's fixed in WebKit and you have a workaround for your site, I'll leave that as is.

- Mark

After FoWA London 2007

Hi David,

Thanks for coming all the way over to London for the event. I'm sorry (again) about the wifi. Because they didn't turn on the ADSL on the lines, there was nothing we could do to fix the problem in time (trust me, heads are going to roll on this one!).

We'll do a better job on the points you mentioned, so thanks for bringing them up.

Hope to see you next year!

Kind regards,
Ryan


What is your notepad bag?

For one reason, I can't stop using my Freitag bag that hasn't really been designed for laptops but is quite okay with a pouch like the Brain Cell.

Is it because of the "less bag" factor, or the feeling it gives to own a unique design (every Freitag bag is different) or is it the snobbishness to wear a brand that has entered the permanent collections of some museums of modern art, I don't know. Maybe it is simply because I like bags that don't look new.

Anyhow, my next "new" bag might be a Crumpler because of their simple, well-thought designs and their wild branding.

craig i think you are right and don't get me wrong i am not for the war in irak and all the thousands of dead we see everyday...but i have hope that things will work even with a man like bush leading the whole situation. It is too easy to say "moi je suis pour un desarmement pacifique avec l'objectif de paix" because how do you figure out that one enters irak and desarms the country without attacking?
especially with saddam hussein in power and the so many number of terrorists?

Non à la guerre en Iraq!

I can't understand some of your comments...
"avec les atrociter que les americains et anglais on fait la en iraq" - have you not seen pictures of thousands of Kurds killed by Hussein? Cela se sont des atrociters.
"juste de dire " crime" et terrorisme contre un peuple affaibli et démuni socialement
un peuple sans defense et sans armes par rapport à toute l'arsenal utilisé par les américains et les britanniques..." - The war wasn't against the civilians, it was against the Hussein Regime, which by the way, was certainly not without defence. They had hundreds of ballistic missiles capable of reaching any country in the Middle East. Their army was being rebuilt after the desasterous war against Iran, which the Americans helped to fund. (Well, actually the Americans funded both sides of that war, but that's another story)...
Iraq was not a peaceful country before the Gulf War, it was not a peaceful country after the Gulf War. We can only hope that once the Americans withdraw from Iraq that then, and only then, will it be peaceful.


Software Update Glitch

A quick sudo su and softwareupdate didn't do it - but going back to Software Update after sudo su worked.

Software Update Glitch

Having same problem. Looking over the suggestions it seemed that this was easiest to implement (thanks Greg):

"When I did softwareupdate -a -i, I noticed that update was trying to download from akamai.net. I had akamai servers blocked in my router/firewall when I was trying to gid rid of adware servers. Come to find out, it's the server Apple uses to distribute software! I unblocked the server, and now everything works fine again."

I use Little Snitch to block some apps from unauthorized communication. I freed up Software Update from connection restrictions and immediately had some success where the error msg had previously prevented installation. Some success. Some programs still didn't load.

So I tried Software Update again, and more updates were installed, but again not all. Once more did the trick.

Doesn't make any sense to me, but that's not unusual. You'd think there would be a common thread among these solutions...

You don't know how long I've been frustrated with this! Thanks for the help...I used Pacifist to install gnutar and tar. Voila--Software Update is back!

DVD copy

I am an eMac Superdrive user, using FAst DVD copy for first time. My home DVD player cannot read DVD-R discs but when I try to see movies copied by a friend of mine with a PC, then even if are copied on a DVD-R disc, my home player can read the.

Also my player can read many of the copies DVD movies we bought when living in Asia. No problems.

All this is quite strange, because when I copy with Fast DVD copy, using same type of disc my home player cannot read it.

How this can be ?

Is there anything to set in FAst DVD copy application ?

I read in their website that this application can only use DVD-R. IS that the reason and why other DVD-R can be read ?

Hope somebody can solve this problem, because I don't want to buy a new video system just for this.

Thanks

Kristian,

Thank you so much for your post at http://www.macinblog.com/2004/02/software_update.html.

After much wading through endless discussions and recommendations, your suggestion ACTUALLY WORKED!!!

I don't understand terminal too well but I am grateful for your post.

I hope that others will benefit from this.

In my case, I did not encounter that particular error message "make sure you have permissions to write to /tmp/501/ ..." until I tried to install Apple's Security Update 9-30-2004 on my G4 running10.3.5. And then other apps wouldn't install either.

But your fix worked and no problems since.

Thank you.

-Greg


Software Update Glitch

great tip - thanks! I run ARD to admin several machines and ran into this issue while doing a remote software update. admittedly the tip posted by Rick was the one that worked - just running software update from the command line:

% softwareupdate -a -i

but thanks for providing the thread!


Should Apple integrate Bochs ?

OpenOSX are swindling people- they do not follow GNU ethics, and have been in a conflict with Fink maintainters. Check out the email correspondence between the Fink maintainter and OpenOSX boss at the Fink homepages. It is not nice. Apparently, some people just want to make money by repackaging others work, and disrespect and exploit others work and their priciples of non-materialism.


Software Update Glitch

Thanks tyo and Mango, it was tar and gnutar :P


Software Update Glitch

I had the same problem when using automatic update, I checked all above tips and I found no problems. A reboot & running softwareupdate -a -i as root seemed to fix the problem on 3 out of 4 machines. I assume that it was a faulty download? anyway more interesting is that I had moved my sever admin tools folder (after installation) from Applications/Server to Applications/Utilities/Server just to tuck it away from curious students. Software update continually tried to update the Applications/Server (noted by a folder named "server" magically applearing after repeated updates) I have since moved it back to the Applications folder and all seems well.


Software Update Glitch

I had the same problem installing on my son's B&W G3. Then I remembered I had installed Dansguardian which is a Net Nanny kind of thing that prevents the lad from visiting pornographic web sites (accidentally, of course). Dansguardian works by installing a proxy server on the local Mac (on his B&W G3). I disabled the proxy server in the Network preferences, installed the updates, and then re-enabled the proxy settings. Voila! HTH.

Software Update Glitch

thanks to tyio for the tip...i had installed Xcode and later uninstalled it b/c it ate too much disk space. however, even after i removed it, my updates worked for a while. go figure. i have to download and manually install updates at the moment. while it's a bit of a pian, as long as that's the worst problem i have, i'll be ok


HFS+ Fragmentation

While I am a huge fan of AlSoft's Disk Warrior (disclaimer: I knew Al and a bunch of his employees) and go to it first to fix things because it's better and non-destructive (until I tell it to be), I never could bring myself to run PlusOptimizer (AlSoft's defrag tool) in the real-time continuous optimizer mode he recommended.

But I'm pretty sure the PlusOptimizer was safe in the listed conditions and was designed to be fail-safe (i.e. if it failed due to a bug, it was supposed to be able to recover, just like his drive fixing utilities.)

The down side of optimizing was always if you had a corrupt B-tree and two files "owned" the same block and one moved it. I always ran DiskWarrior/Norton/Disk First Aid first, and didn't optimize unless I was clean.

But yeah, I appeciate OS X and not needing to defrag for performance reasons.


Should Apple integrate Bochs ?

I wish I would have done more research before getting openOSX's WinTel. It is PAINFULLY SLOW!! And it took at least 10 hours to do an install of Windows 2000. Sheesh. Contact to OpenOSX goes unanswered, there goes 25 bucks. An inexpensive lesson, but a lesson nonetheless. I'll just wait until the beta of Epicad's Sync Again so I can sync my Blackberry. Once that's complete and functional, Windows be damned.


Software Update Glitch

This won't solve your problem as you haven't installed Xcode on your server. But for those who did:

From mango:

Well, I found out what was preventing Software Update from working. Apple's uninstaller for Xcode also uninstalled "tar" and "gnutar" from /usr/bin. I had to use Pacifist to manually extract and install those two components from the base package on my Panther disk. Thanks, Apple. Nicely done with that uninstaller.

Software Update Glitch

Here's my fix to this exact same problem. After much glomming over web pages and documentation, and looking at my install logs that failed because of this /tmp/501 permissions problem, I noticed one thing. I was getting errors trying to install anything, be it Software Updates or 3rd party applications. Nothing would install, and Software Update kept giving me the "Make sure you have permission to write to the /tmp/501 blah blah blah folder". The one thing common with all my failed installs was the failure to write to a temporary file or folder.

I found a website that listed some of the default symbolic links for OS X. I logged on as Root from the command line (sudo su), and did a CD / to get to the root folder. From there, I did an "ls -l" to see all the files and symlinks in the root folder. And there it was. What was supposed to be a symbolic link called "tmp" was actually a FILE called "tmp". That's what was causing me all the temporary folder issues. There was no link to the real folder.

I did an "rm tmp" to delete the file. Then, recreated the proper symbolic link by doing an "ln -s /private/tmp tmp".

To see if this would help, I stayed on the command line and did the command line version of software update (softwareupdate -a -i). Voila! Success! No more "Make sure you have permission to write to /tmp/501/TemporaryItems/com.apple.SoftwareUpdate, then try again."!!!

By the way, as a comparison to your situation, I did the last Apple Remote Desktop update back in December, and hadn't tried Software Update until this week again. That's when I began investigating and ran across your blog with the same error message I was getting.

I couldn't try the XCode thing because I couldn't install ANY software at all.

So, this may or may not be the *fix* for this problem for everyone, but it certainly bears checking out if you're having this damn message crop up.

From T to T3

Chris,

Basically you can't make iSync and Palm Desktop work together. Or rather, one set of data can only be synched with one conduit (Datebook -> Address Book via iSync OR Datebook -> Palm Desktop via Palm Contact Conduit).

You can choose to iSync your Addresses and not your Calendars, or the reverse, but you can't iSync AND HotSync to Palm Desktop at the same time.

I agree with you. The Palm iSync is still imperfect and not pratical to use. The simple fact that HotSync must initiate the process is annoying. Moreover, data eventually gets corrupted and iSync reports inconsistencies and suggest to reset the device .. which makes you start from scratch, loosing all the categories attributions etc.

Guess it'll work properly some day, but I'm frightened that might entail a rewrite of how Palm OS deals with its data. I mean, look at Contacts, you still can't assign two addresses to a single record, and it still is very much has it was back in the 80'ties when US Robotics released the first Palm Pilot
:/


From T to T3

I have had similar problems with isync and T3. It finally clicked on the differnet names for the conduits, but I don't really understand how you then managed to make isync work with Palm desktop. I tried re-installing both programs without success and have abandoned it at the moment waiting for Apple to list the T3 as a supported device for isync 3 (it still isn't)

Any help gratefully received.

Chris

For those who asked: in order to use Palm Desktop under Mac OS 10.3 (Panther), it needs to be installed as root. That worked for me.

In order to login to your Mac as user root and doing a fresh install. Make sure you have the the latest iSync palm conduit installed too.

Enabling root access: If you use NetInfo Manager (in /Applications/Utilities/) to enable the root account, log out, log in as root, install Palm Desktop, log out, log in as yourself, relaunch NetInfo Mgr and disable root, it works fine.

Anybody notice such behaviours ? I'm sure Adriaan is going to squash these before you finish reading this. He is extremely responsive.

Hibernation

You must be fighting with what more and more people must be experiencing: too much online content to manage.

I am wondering if in some time someone should come up with a way of organizing all the different bits and parts that we get to scatter online.

If I take my experience, I have 3 personal blogs, 2 or 3 where I am an author, 1 wiki, 3 or 4 digital photo albums, 1 mobile phone photo album, 1 web site for my film photography, 1 corporate website and plenty of projects that I just can't commit to by lack of time. And I'm not talking about all the personal pages that I have on many web sites.

The problem now, is that what was meant to help me organize data and ideas is getting somewhat disorganized and I feel the need to have some sort of central starting point where I can have an overview on all of my data.

Maybe Apple should come up with some sort of "data hub" in reference to the concept of "digital hub" they have managed to create. See it like yet another online service that would serve as a entry point to all of your online real estate.

I don't know if this makes sense or if it is pure utopia...

Panther: archiving in ZIP format

I haven't had a chance to play with it yet as my copy of panther isn't arriving until friday, but from what I understand Panther .zip are for the most part completely normal zip files unless the files you are archiving have HFS resource forks. If this is the case it stores the resource fork for somefile.ext as ._somefile.ext Then when it expands them it puts them back magically. The problem comes if you upzip them with a standard unziping program. The resource forks are never merged again. For most files this isn't a problem. If it is, this MacOSXHints page shows how to set the correct unzipper as your default and even provides an AppleScript to repair archives that have already been unzipped with a different tool.

Panther: Mail.app add-ons

Yes, you are right, except that the image has to be present in your Address Book (or .Mac):

[quote]

Mac OS X seems to already have what MailPictures claims to provide --- what's the deal?

While Mac OS X provides the core functionality of displaying images in Mail or iChat, it is limited to either pictures you manually have assigned in the AddressBook and to .Mac accounts. With MailPictures any email address can have an image and there is no need to manually assign an image to a person. So if I (mailpictures@nikwest.de) send an email to you my image will magically pop up in the email message. There is nothing you have to do besides having MailPictures installed.

Finder rename bug

If you hit the ESC button after it gives you the annoying dialog, then it will rename the file


OS half life

Perhaps you almost just ran out of memory, including harddisk storage at some time. That is the only time when I loose settings and the system is acting up like you describe. I have a G3 server running for a 120 days or thereabouts, and after I tried to install SETI at home, it wrote an endless amount of cr.. in the system log. I almost had to reboot, but caught it at less than a megabyte free on the harddisk. Oh, well, the ssh-key broke, but that's life ;-)

iDVD 3.0.1 without a SuperDrive

What isn't cool is when you buy a new Power Mac G4 two weeks after iDVD 3 is announced, *have* a superdrive, but Apple wants fifty dollars for iLife or twenty dollars for "shipping" for software you're entitled to have. Am searching the net once again trying to find someone who has posted iDVD 3.0 to which he's legally entitled. Frustration.


Apple's Free Online Digital Photography Seminar

i meant "backdrop" not "desktop"....


Apple's Free Online Digital Photography Seminar

i wish apple would do a more professional job at this. I signed up for the "seminar." It's mostly a glorified infomercial. It's filmed with a desk and ugly blue desktop and two hosts, one of whom continually says "uh" and looks away from the camera to read his notes. So far, 18 minutes into the video, the only thing I've "learned" is that going digital will pay for itself in a couple of months, and I can use all the same lenses I've used in the past on the new high end digital camera I purchased. Oh, and Mac is easy. Yeah, great. How about some actual instruction?


Happy Birthday Olivier!

Sony Ericsson Clicker

So you bought a t68i thinking it would sync up all the events from your Mac did you? And now you're disappointed and find the phone useless as a calendar because you can never be sure if you're free on a certain day or not? Well...

I strongly suggest that you immediately send a quick note to the President of Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications about this matter. He can be contacted by:

e-mail katsumi.ihara@sonyericsson.com

Mr. Katsumi Ihara

Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications Ltd.

Sony Ericsson House

202 Hammersmith Road

United Kingdom

Below are a couple of links to some examples of messages published by Sony Ericsson that led me to believe I was purchasing a phone that would synchronise ALL of my calendar events not only SOME of those events.

On these pages, you will find claims containing keywords like "up-to-date", "compatible", "same" and "accurate", such as:

* "Apple's hot new synchronizing software keeps your iCal information and Mac OS X Address Book up-to-date on your Bluetooth-enabled mobile phone"

* "This product [iSync] is compatible with the following Sony Ericsson phones: ... T68i"

* "the same up to date address book and calendars everywhere ñ on their Mac and in their pocket"

* "customers using the new Sony Ericsson T68i phone are ... keeping their ... calendar up-to-date between their Mac and their phone"

* "You can have your ... calendar with you wherever you go, and you'll know the information is accurate"

RendezVous between networks

There is another article on this subject here:

http://www.afp548.com/Articles/Jaguar/mtunnels.html

The tip uses a java application called mTunnel

http://www.cdt.luth.se/~peppar/progs/mTunnel/

that creates a multicast tunnel between two distant networks.

This allows to see servers, printers and more with the convenience of RendezVous. However, it seems like it does not work with all services. For example, iChat won't show you the users on the remote network.

Virex eUpdate .. outdated

Thanks for the advice. I've been trying to get this to work since I bought my new G4 iMac a few months ago. The folks at Applecare don't even want to here about it...they tell you to call Virex. Tried to explain that I thought the only problem was that the URL for the eUdate server was wrong..."join a discussion group, I can't help you," is all I got in response. Applecare level 1 support ranks as one of the poorest experiences I can recall with customr service.

Check your settings, and make sure you haven't forgotten the trailing slash on the directory path:

I tried this but got a weird result. After providing an Administrator password, the eUpdate gives me the message:

"There is not enough hard disk space to download and install theis eUpdate. Make space on your hard disk and try again later by clicking the eUpdate icon."

I have 65 GB available. Either something's wrong or this is one heck of an update. Any suggestions?

"well done Apple!" appears to be based on the premise that, because Apple has acknowledged a problem in 10.2.5 and rushed out the door an update which fixes this problem, Apple should be congratulated for the release of 10.2.6, which, in fact, is causing many more USB problems for many more users than it solves.

VersionTracker's new UI

Seems like the VersionTracker development team has been surged with comments, if I understand this generic email that I received yesterday:

We appreciate you taking the time to email us. We apologize for the generic email, but with the number of emails we received we wanted to get back to you as soon as possible.

As you know we are in the process of upgrading our database and user review system.†Despite the database, site and browser compatibility testing we unfortunately ran into issues that could only have been uncovered after launching.†As of 24 hours from launch, the site is stable again.†

However, there are a lot of steps remaining to get all the features of VersionTracker working correctly including:

- Browser rendering bugs.†These are being addressed.†

- All past reviews, download counts and product ratings are saved.† The "old" reviews and ratings are in the process of being re-imported and will be back on the site shortly.

For the latest list of known issues and to provide additional feedback please go to:

http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/19346&mode=DeveloperNotes

Our goal is to improve VersionTracker in order to address concerns about the review system that many readers had--- without changing the VersionTracker you rely on just for the sake of "change".†


VersionTracker's new UI

Hmm, thanks for the 'no ads' tip. That option was actually off in my previous settings, and I didn't take the time to recheck it..

The layout problem is specific to Safari. Something to do with its CSS 2 rendering (check Dave's Hyatt weblog for more info (http://www.mozillazine.org/weblogs/hyatt/).

BTW, Camino renders the page perfectly ;)

Safari: http://www.macinblog.com/mac/img/vt-new_ui_safari.jpg

VersionTracker's new UI

Advertising can be switched off in: Membership area > Pro/Plus Tab Preferences, but this seems to generate a cosmetic bug where the Product info overlaps the table on the right.

I'm also experiencing a problem where all items are "Not yet rated"!!

At last, It would be nice if VersionTracker offered the possibility to view a screenshot like in MacUpdate (http://www.macupdate.com/screenshot.php?id=5661).

About the Finder

davo39

thanks.

took look. looks interesting.

when possible will look closer.

I was re-reading the Siracusa article. I had forgotten all the little osx annoyances I still experience but have taught myself to ignore. I always work in collumns mode because of the ease of cascading through the directories and lack of clutter. But then when opening up a directory higher up the chain i go and loose the one i'm currently looking at. Gets to me every time.


About the Finder

Julius,

Actually, there are several shareware applications that restore that behaviour. My favourite is FruitMenu from Unsanity

http://www.unsanity.com/haxies/fruitmenu/

[quote]

FruitMenu is a haxie that gives you the ability to customize the Apple Menu and contextual menus. Using a visual editor you can edit the contents of the menus to suit your needs and taste. FruitMenu will also display the contents of the FruitMenu Items folder inside of your Library folder, launch applications and shell scripts from the Apple Menu and contextual menus, to allow easy file navigation and launching. To make the haxie completely flexible and customizable, you can assign hotkeys to particular menu items. Last but not least, it is priced at only US$10 with lifetime free updates!

[/quote]


About the Finder

My gripe with osx (which i love) is that there seems no way of duplicating the old apple menu which allowed one to organise one's aliases in a meaningfull way and acess what one wanted with one simple mouse operation via the cascading menus.

The MHz Myth is back

As embarrassing as it is to say this amongst die-hard mac fans, I'm one of those obnoxious Switchers. After spending a year on a Mac under OS 9.2 in college (doing Multimedia Design), I went out and bought a Mac running 10.2

The only thing I even turn the PC on for anymore is browser testing. I couldn't go back if you paid me. Yes, my 800MHz eMac *isn't* as "snappy" as my 1.5GHz PC.. but for me it's all about the user experience; it's built from the ground up with the end user in mind and it really shows. I love it.

Should Apple integrate Bochs ?

Picked up on Macintouch (http://www.macintouch.com/)

Tim Seufert offered his notes on the open-source Bochs PC emulator, which has received new attention following Microsoft's takeover of Virtual PC from Connectix Corp.:

I strongly recommend that MacInTouch readers try out Bochs for free before spending $30 on the OpenOSX.com version. Visit [Bochs] to download it. The Mac OS X download includes a disk image of DLX Linux and an AppleScript to start it up.

For most users, Bochs is simply not a practical substitute for VirtualPC. The reason is simple: Bochs is not very fast, since the Bochs developers generally prioritize technical correctness and portability ahead of performance. Bochs can be very useful for old legacy PC software (such as DOS apps from the 286 days), but it's painfully slow when running anything recent. I've read accounts of the OS X version of Bochs taking over 24 hours to install Windows 98, for example.

On another note, OpenOSX.com makes the following claim about Bochs running on OS X:

"Thanks to Mac OS X's advanced architecture, multiple G4 CPUs can be utilized and are emulated as a single powerful Pentium(R) processor or as dual Pentium Processors." Bochs does not utilize multiple CPUs, no matter what OS it runs on. Having examined the Bochs source code and searched the Bochs mailing list archives, I can confidently state that Bochs uses only a single thread of execution (even when emulating multiple Pentiums). Threads are the basis of multiprocessor utilization; to use more than one CPU at a time, a program must have more than one thread. This is as true of MacOS X as it is of any operating system. As Bochs has one thread, by definition it uses exactly one G4 at a time.

OpenOSX.com has previously been notified that this claim is at best misleading; nevertheless, they continue to make it.

Post your Safari GUI wishes

Here are a few comments about Safari's UI :

1/ Use standard toolbar. I want to be able to show/hide the toolbar as any other standard OS X application

2/ Brushed metal is not appropriate for a browser and violates Apple's own GUI guidelines

3/ Do not use custom GUI Button. They do not feet well with Aqua.

4/ When typing an URL, Tab should allow the user to go to the next matching known url (like the right arrow key). It's the behaviour of all good browsers on the planet

I'll try to think about some more ;)

Keep up the good work.

Hello Dave;

Please! More options when control-clicking (or right mouse button clicking). I'd like to see a "Back" (to previous page) and a "Close Window" option here too. Even a Spring-Back option would be good here as well as in the address bar.

Also a full screen mode without the standard Mac Menu bar, and a "Move" hand in addition to the scroll bars. A method of chaning the location of items in the Safari Menu Bar would help too.

Thanks for the chance to speak up!

Printing labels from Address Book

Picked this up on Apple Discussions:

http://discussions.info.apple.com/WebX?14@@.3bba7a2a/1

Original Message

(Posted Sep 23, 02 11:34 pm)

The inability of AppleWorks to do a mail merge with the Address Book in X 10.2 is a major downfall. Until Apple comes up with a fix in an updated AppleWorks, I'm using AppleScript.

I've created a simple script to get names and addresses from a group in Address Book and copy them to an AppleWorks database. From this database you can use the usual mail merge funtion.

It's a bit of a kluge solution but it works and still allows you to use Address Book as your contacts database.

You can download the example script from my idisk:

Finder->Go->Connect to Server: http://idisk.mac.com/haroldshields/Public

The example uses a Xmas Card Recipients group. You can change the name of the group in the script to suit your purposes.

Cheers!
