You could call this nitpicking, but after my first post on the subject I've found another inconsistency. On the servers this time.

In my previous post I mentioned missing icons in Snow Leopard. After upgrading my template to 8.5 the icons have reappeared.


Snow leopard and 8.5 FP1: some missing icons

  09/07/09 09:20 am, by , Categories: IBM, Lotus, Mac
Last week, I got an email from Steve, with the following question:

Hi Dennis...long time Mac user here running 10.6 and Lotus Notes 8.5

I've come across a few glitches since going to Snow Leopard...such as missing icons in mail views, etc. Just wondering if you thought 8.5.1 would fix some of that? Do you have any idea how I might obtain 8.5.1 to see if it would help?

Thanks in advance for your help!


My first reponse was that I hadn't started notes yet on Snow Leopard. But after I did, I found out he was right.

Checkmarks are missing, and the folder expand icons are missing too. (Yes that's a R6 mailfile)

This is the version I'm running.

Any suggestions on the How and Why?

Apple made a booboo in Snow Leopard

It may be nitpicking, but it still remains inconsistant.
If you create a policy document containing a version number, please note the subtile difference between the 2 highlighted entries in my person doc.

Via Appleinsider: (full bulletin here)

Apple released the next -- and potentially last -- upgrade to its Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard operating system Wednesday afternoon, bringing minor tweaks before the debut of Snow Leopard in September.

The latest update to Leopard includes security fixes, improves Bluetooth reliability, and upgrades Safari to version 4.0.2. It is available for Mac users via software update, or a 274MB file for download from Apple. The combo update is also available at 759MB.

"The Mac OS X v10.5.8 Update is recommended for Mac OS X v10.5 Leopard users and includes general operating system fixes that enhance the stability, compatibility and security of your Mac," reads an Apple statement.

Also released Wednesday were Mac OS X Server 10.5.8 (274MB ), Security Update 2009-003 for Tiger on Power PC (76MB ), Security Update 2009-003 for Server Tiger on Power PC (130MB ), Security Update 2009-003 for Server Tiger Universal (204MB ), and Security Update 2009-003 for Tiger on Intel 166MB.

Mac OS X 10.5.8

The list of fixes for Leopard are as follows:

  • Upgrades Safari to version 4.0.2.

  • Improves the accuracy of full history search in Safari 4.

  • Resolves an issue in which certain resolutions might not appear in the Display pane in System Preferences.

  • Dragging an Aperture image into Automator now invokes an Aperture action instead of incorrectly invoking an iPhoto action.

  • Resolves an issue that could prevent importing of large photo and movie files from digital cameras.

  • Improves overall Bluetooth reliability with external devices, USB webcams and printers.

  • Addresses an issue that could cause extended startup times.

  • Improves iCal reliability with MobileMe Sync and CalDav.

  • Addresses data reliability issues with iDisk and MobileMe.

  • Improves overall reliability with AFP.

  • Improves overall reliability with Managed Client.

  • Improves compatibility and reliability for joining AirPort networks.

  • Improves Sync Service reliability.

  • Includes additional RAW image support for several third-party cameras.

Mac convert? This tool will help

  05/09/09 11:53 am, by , Categories: Mac
I've switched to a Mac at home, but there is one habit that doesn't die: maximizing windows. That was the biggest problem I encountered when I switched: I want to be in control.

But now, I can with this tool, Right Zoom.

Right Zoom for Mac 1.6 - freeware (language: English)

This free tool fixes an inconvenient behavior of green Zoom button in Mac OS X. It will always expand windows on a full screen instead of strange resizing.

I did it....

I Bought an Imac. I know, its not a full Mac or a macbook, but I've got to start somewhere.

The problem: it's been sitting in my garage for 2 weeks, staring at me, as I'm moving house at the moment (hence the silence, no internet).

After our new desks are delivered next friday, we can finally setup our computers and I can unpack the imac. Looking forward to it! Another one moved from windows to mac. My old PC won't go to waste, it'll be once more my debian based domino server. A lot of stuff to do, but first, a house to finish.
