Increase disk space to install Sierra

I tried to install Sierra without enough disk space, and the installer program told me I didn't have enough space and I would have to restart and try again. I restarted and it came up with the same message. I finally looked in the installer and chose my startup disk, restarted it, and it went back t...

Removing personal info from my Mac

I am going to sell a Mac computer. Is there a standard procedure that I would use to make sure the new owner does not have access to my past files? Could he get access after I remove them, if he used Time machine? Any suggestions for a quick way to delete my personal information in a way that the ne...

I looked on the library website and found this listing of events hosted by the library. http://www.nols.org/events/port-angeles.html I was...

Re: Memory upgrade for iMac

Thanks Steve! Hope we did the right thing. We ordered the computer with 8 gb and we will order 32 to replace it from OWC. The OWC video makes it look easy to change the RAM in this computer. Thanks for the extra info as well.

Re: Memory upgrade for iMac

This is a related question about memory upgrades. I'm thinking of purchasing a new iMac. Why does 32 gb of ram cost more than twice the price of 16 gb? Why couldn't I just buy it with 16 gb and then add another 16 gb myself to save on the price of memory?

Re: E-mail & Bots

Thanks for the input. It's the mail program that comes with the Mac. I quit the mail program, ran repair permissions and started it up again. Now when I send one e-mail "mail activity" says one e-mail is being sent.

E-mail & Bots

Question #1 My e-mail program has a box in the lower left corner that says "MAIL ACTIVITY". When I send an e-mail it indicates that 41 e-mails are being sent, even though I only am sending one e-mail to one person. I'm not sending attachments, just a simple e-mail. Why does it say I'm sending 41? Qu...

Remember MacDraw? I had it on my old Mac IIci.
