TidBITS Opinion: Clicking the Right Button

This article from TidBITS suggests that Mac users need to move into the 21st century and learn to right-click. The Mac OS has had this capability since way back in System 8, Apple hasn't sold a one-button mouse for years, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera.

McDonald's Wi-Fi to be permanently free | Electronista

McDonald's tonight revealed that its Wi-Fi hotspots will soon be free. The fast food chain is dropping its previous $3, two-hour rate as of mid-January as an effort to turn its stores into "destinations" where customers are encouraged to stay for longer periods and use their notebooks or smartphones.

FREE Music from Amazon MP3

A few NCC-Mac meetings ago I showed how one can acquire hundreds, if not thousands of free tracks from AmazonMP3. However, I didn't have the direct links to the freebie pages, and I tried to show how to navigate through too many menus to find the good stuff. Well, today Amazon published direct links on Facebook to both Free Songs and Free Albums. Happy Holidays.

NCC-Mac November Meeting Reminder

The next North Curry County Macintosh Users meeting is at the Langlois Library on Thursday, November 19 at 6:00 PM.

We will be learning together how to use iChat. If you have a laptop or luggable Mac, bring it in, and we'll see how big an iChat network we can build. I suspect this may lead to serious goofing off, a perfect way to usher in the Holidays.

NCC-Mac October Meeting Reminder

The next North Curry County Macintosh Users meeting is at the Langlois Library on Thursday, October 22 at 6:00 PM. The main topic is "Music Downloading 101: On the Cheap." This is not a particularly Mac-specific topic, but there has been some interest from a few members.

It looks like we also may be doing some hardware troubleshooting sometime during the meeting. We'll see how that works out.

Followup #2 (& Hack): Snow Leopard Hates FireWire 400

Background: As some of you may already know, a small number of users (perhaps a tiny number of users) are reporting that their FireWire 400 disc burners stopped working properly after updating to Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. I have one of those burners, a circa-2001 LaCie enclosure containing a fairly new Pioneer DVD burner.


I posted an initial message on September 4 describing what I had observed and what I had learned from Apple tech support . I posted a followup on September 11 stating that the Mac OS X 10.6.1 update did not fix anything. I copied the followup to several sites, and it propagated to several more.


Subsequently I called LaCie tech support and learned that they were aware that their old enclosures did not play well with Snow Leopard, but that some were "fixed" with the 10.6.1 update.


On Sunday I received an anonymous reply on my blog with THE SOLUTION. But first a warning: Kids, don't try this at home without adult supervision. This hack requires a file to be transplanted into your System folder hierarchy.. Going into your System folder is a BAD THING! In other words, be very careful. I am purposely not giving any more detailed information than the anonymous poster did. If you're not confident in what to do, step away from your Mac NOW!

Subject: [North Curry County Macintosh Users] New comment on Followup: Snow Leopard Hates FireWire 400.


Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "Followup: Snow Leopard Hates FireWire 400":


If you replace the extension


IOFirewireSerialBusProtocolTransport.kext


with the one from 10.5 you should have no problem. One caveat, you MUST repair permissions BEFORE restarting or you may have a problem with the replacement extension being recognized. This could be a problem even if you repair permissions after restarting.

September Meeting Reminder

This is a reminder that the September meeting of the North Curry County Macintosh users will be held Thursday the 24th at 6:00 PM in the Jayel Gibson Conference Room of the Port Orford Library. That is the small room on your right as you enter the main mart of the library.

At this time I have no formal presentation prepared, but I'll have a few things to say about Snow Leopard and the new iTunes 9.

Now, for those of you in the Southern Hemisphere:

G4 Users: Downgrade Flash Player for better performance

If you have an older, slower Mac and have updated to Flash Player 10, you may have experienced some degradation of web browser performance after the update. You might be able to get some of that performance back by downgrading to version 9. Adobe wants you to use version 10 in Mac OS X 10.4 or higher, but version 9 is just as good. What's more, version 9 has kept up with all the security updates, so you'll be no less safe using it.

Go to http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/otherversions/ and select 'Macintosh OS X 10.1 - 10.3' from the popup menu. You can then proceed to download Flash Player 9.


You'll be downloading 'install_flash_player_9.dmg'. When the download completes, double-click the image file; a volume will be mounted and a window will open that looks something like this:



Quit your web browser. Drag the items on the left to the folder aliases on the right. You may be asked whether you wish to overwrite existing files. Yes you do. You may be asked for an Administrator password. Give it. That's all there is to it!

Followup: Snow Leopard Hates FireWire 400

Background: As some of you may already know, a number of users are reporting that their FireWire 400 disc burners are failing to operate properly under Snow Leopard (10.6.x), though they still work flawlessly under Leopard (10.5.x). I, myself have such a problem with the external drive on my iMac, but when I tried to get some "support" from Apple Tech Support, I was informed that Snow Leopard no longer supports FireWire 400.

Since my FireWire 400 Time Machine drive still works just fine, I found this answer to be a bit, shall we say, oversimplified. Others chimed in that the tech support person didn't have a clue what he was talking about.

Fast forward to today: Hoping that this annoying bug had been squashed in one of those unspecified "compatibility" updates, I installed the Mac OS X 10.6.1 update shortly after it came out. The short answer is: no, they didn't fix the bug, but they may have made it worse. Mostly, Snow Leopard can see the FireWire interface, but can't see anything in the drive within. Sometimes a disc appears on my Desktop, but any application that tries to access it "beachballs."

I'm going to try to get this burner operational by connecting to a USB Universal Drive Adaptor. If that works I'll see if I can find a proper enclosure that's Snow Leopard certified.

I'm posting this message to comp.sys.mac.system, Apple Feedback and my user group blog . I'm also forwarding a copy to Joe Kissell, author of Take Control of Upgrading to Snow Leopard, whom I've been keeping in the loop regarding this problem.

HUMOR

Apple Computer Technical Support has confirmed that the new Snow Leopard operating system no longer provides driver software for the Gutenberg Model #1 Movable-Type Printing Press. I see a rich opportunity for the open-source community to step in and revitalize this technology, a mainstay of the publishing industry for the past 570 years.

Snow Leopard Hates FireWire 400?

After a long night of troubleshooting why my external FireWire 400 DVD drive was able to install Snow Leopard without a hitch, but suddenly became flaky to the extreme immediately afterward, I got it straight from Apple Tech Support that FireWire 400 is no longer supported. That does not explain why my FireWire Time Machine drive is still working like a champ.

There are a few message threads in Apple's support forums that suggest this has been a problem for a few other users besides me. The best I can tell people who rely on me for tech support is to not assume their FireWire 400 peripherals will still work properly after updating to Snow Leopard.

My DVD drive also has a USB interface which seems to work just fine. That's the way I'll be using the drive until I hear anything different from Apple.

July Meeting Notice

The next NCC-Mac meeting will be held Tuesday, July 28 at 6:30 PM at the Langlois Library.

The topic this time will be "Fun with Video: Redux." Last month's demo didn't go particularly well, so I'm giving it another try, this time with better explanatory graphics. We'll be discussing downloading the undownloadable, playing the unplayable and making a quick and dirty DVD.

Next and Future Meetings ?

Might I be so bold as to suggest that perhaps it's less the day than the location? Before giving up the group entirely, please hold at least one meeting in Port Orford. Heavens, the very thought! Okay, I'll bribe you with something to eat before the meeting. Thursday might be good since the library is open until 8 PM. The big community room costs money but we can meet in the little room for free, and spill out into the hallway if need be. If we happen to wander into the big room, well, who knows?

What about the new burrito shop? That might be another possibility.

By the way, even though I selected all the days of the week on your poll, for me it does depend on which week of the month as well. For example, I already have evening meetings scheduled for the second Monday and Thursday of each month.

One last thing: thank you for getting this group started. Even if we end up meeting only once per quarter, at least if we can get to know each other and maintain some kind of contact on-line, that's a "win" to my way of thinking.

Monday, July 6, 2009

Next meeting and future meetings

Since we started this group, monthly meetings have been scheduled for 6:30 PM on the last Tuesday of the month. Our next meeting will adhere to that schedule and will be held Tuesday, July 28 at the Langlois Library.

I can't help but notice that attendance has dwindled since our inaugural meeting. Summertime travel season may be one influencing factor. Another factor could be the simple inconvenience or having our meetings on the "wrong" day of the week. (I choose to ignore the possibility that I don't have anything interesting to present.)

I have created a poll over there in the right column. If you could take a moment of your time to click on one or more days of the week when you'd be most likely to attend an NCC-Mac meeting, we'll try to come up with a better schedule. Meetings will still be held in the evening, near the end of each month, at the Langlois Library.

Thank you for your feedback.
