  • 1. Time Machine restore
    24" iMac (late 2007) Mac OS 10.6.1 Recently (since update to Snow Leopard?) I've found that I can't restore folders that require administrative folders when logged into my working administrative account. All other administrative functions appear to work normally, but TM restores fail with the message: 'The operation can be completed because you don have permission to access folder nam>>' If I switch to my "pristine" admin account, everything "just works" (tm). Clearly there is something borked in (or with) my working admin account, but I don't know what or where. /etc/sudoers has not been touched since last June. where else should I look?

  • 2. Alias Wierdness
    I have just noticed that when I create an alias to a file on a shared volume (10.4 or 10.6) and copy it to the current volume (10.4) the alias icon on the current volume changes to a folder. Furthermore, some aliases are 4 kb while others are as large as 1 mb. Perhaps this has been going on all along but I never noticed it. Can anyone explain it? -- Nelson
  • 3. Gawd! i hate computers...! ( Printer Issues )
    Awhile ago i got an HP printer And now, starting a week or two ago, It is telling me, everytime i try to print something, That i am out of yellow. This is not so much a specific case, But applies to all the colors. It's not a bug. It's a RipOff. The thing is; When it tells me ( you/anyone ) that it is out of yellow, i would imagine that nearly everyone just changes the cartridge. But being a tiny bit smarter & cheaper than the average featherless parakeet, i have taken the time to figure out how to circumvent this warning, and continue printing. And printing. And printing. And printing. Big Full color pages with lots of greens and oranges. And printing. If you change the cartridge when it tells you to. When the front indicator LCD has gone to zero, And the exclaimation point is where the yellow box used to be... You would be throwing away about a half a cartridge of ink. Very, Very, VERY Expensive Ink. ( Which is actually very inexpensive, if they weren't so evil. And HP used to be such a nice company too.

ugradability of iMac

Does anyone know if Apple will be changing the case design of the Intel
iMacs so that they can be more upgradable?

I know that the initial G5 iMac can be opened and you can replace most
of the components relatively easily.  The new iMacs only leave the RAM
accessible, however.  Why is this?  Why not let people buy components
and upgrade their systems themselves?

Thanks.

In article < XXXX@XXXXX.COM >,




Buy a G5 tower and customize to your heart's content.

Or if you really want to build your own box, Windows and Linux are
always available.

Apple sells hardware. You either buy their hardware (AND get the best
OS in the world with it) or you buy someone else's.

Like it or not, it's the way things are.

The original and second iMac G5 series, yes. The last iMac G5 series
(released about three months before the Intel iMacs) had the same
limitation as the Intel models - no user serviceable parts (other than
RAM) and no easy access to internal components.


That is not the point of the iMac. If you want a machine with a moderate
degree of internal upgrades, Apple wants you to buy one of the top-end
professional models (currently the PowerMac G5). Even then, the CPU
isn't officially upgradeable.

The earlier iMac G5 models weren't intended to be upgradable, just
easier to service (though I expect the hard drive could be replaced
quite easily).

1.iMac to iMac firewire transfer: lost OE address book, keepers\

We did a Firewire transfer from the old imac to a newer one. OE should
have made the transfer with addresses, keepers intact, but failed to do
so.  I moved the OE preferences in hopes that this would contain the
missing info, but no luck. We're ready to abandon OE altogether in
favor of something a little more user-friendly, but need to recover the
"keepers".  I can't seem to just extract any emails or pictures from
the "keepers" file and transfer them by flash drive or email.

What am I missing?

Hate to split hairs, but you have either an Intel iMac OR a G5 iMac.  NOT a 
G5 iMac.
