Re: Going from one cat to two

sassygirl,

I thought someone had once written up all the suggestions into an FAQ, but I can't find it. But, you can tap the wisdom of this board by doing a search of "introducing cats", there have been lots of threads over the [more]

Re: Getting an iMac

I'll answer for Steve. I've been pricing monitors to go with my Mac mini. I disagree with Steve on price. You can get an under $200 27" monitor, but mostly I've seen good 23 - 24" monitors in the $100 - $200 range, around $150, depending on [more]

Re: 1Password is having a heart bleed sale

Good to know, thanks. I already have the app, I purchased it some time ago but have never activated it. Will it sync with the desktop app?

Re: Hide WiFi neetwork name?

Why not rename it something innocuous? Something completely unrelated to you or to your home? Call it The Beatles, for example.

Re: 1Password is having a heart bleed sale

Re: Kass's Strategy

And not all that beautiful either, in my opinion (but what do I know, since I'm wayyy over 40, and in her world, that makes me ugly)

Re: HeartBleed - Where's it going to show up...

So, am I supposed to cancel my weekend plans and stay in to check all my websites, even ones I rarely go to, and then check back to see that they've applied the fix, and then change my passwords? I'm confused...

Re: Correction

I just have to say, AM, that you're the only person other than myself that I've ever heard complain about seat belts. Maybe everyone else is so used to crappy, ill-fitting seat belts that they don't know any better?

Re: New MBP Update

In Safari, you can set an accessibility preference for font sizes. Look under the Advanced option for it.

Re: Never Trust a Lawyer!

The time for discussion was when they had the numbers, not after you stabbed your team in the back

You are right, I know. Sarah was a threat, but she was a threat that could have been contained after this vote. I agree with [more]

Re: Never Trust a Lawyer!

Ha! Are you trying to get me back for my boston insult? The way Kass will get past it is by explaining or arguing her way out. Sarah really was a threat to them all, in the long run.

Re: Dire problems - iMac can't find startup driv

Steven,

thanks for the advice, but it got much more complex that your fix. But eventually, I got the drive wiped and a new Mavericks OS installed. The old disk was Leopard, and it wouldn't boot up (if I'm remembering right). I made a [more]

Re: Anybody? Startup disk problems

I finally got it to work. I think the problem was more in the installation file I was using. I had made a flash drive installation disk for Mavericks, and was trying to install from that. Or, it could have been the final erase & reformat that I [more]

Re: Anybody? Startup disk problems

I erased the disk. I am right now doing the Erase Free Space, and renamed the disk back to Macintosh HD, instead of Untitled. I doubt this will do it.

Here's what I did. Instead of following the correct instructions, I followed some older [more]

Anybody? Startup disk problems

I posted yesterday. Is there anyone who can help out?

Currently, I have a hard drive that tests ok through Disk Utility, but it is not the startup disk. I have a backup clone external drive acting as a startup disk, and I'm trying to [more]

Re: Really detest Trish

Yeah, IP, I guess I can't stereotype. I really like you! Besides, I'm from Louisiana, and shouldn't admit that in a group of Survivor junkies, since the Louisiana players have been less than stellar (Russell...cough...Russell).
