Re: Internet provider

I think Rick Johnston uses them so try contacting Rick. But Stephen is right you have to be under their umbrella of coverage which varies considerably based on topography and distance from a repeater. They have maps online but I think you can call them and they'll let you know if they can provide se...

Re: Strange New Error Message

OK, but it was that simple? No lost preferences, or strange behavior? (I mean strange behavior on the part of the Mac, not the user.) ;) All the strange behavior and hiccups went bye-bye in the new account. And yes, I did have to reset Preferences in all my programs but that didn't take any time at...

Re: Strange New Error Message

Is it as easy as dragging your folders? I seem to remember in the past that you couldn't do that, and had to jump through hoops. I was too casual with my language. While in my old account I copied what I wanted to a USB drive. Then I logged in to the new account and moved the files from the USB dri...

Re: Strange New Error Message

Something else I just noticed since creating a new account on my MacBook... a couple of problems in Photos have disappeared. It was easy to work around these problems with a mouse click or two so I didn't think much of it. And Safari had started acting stupid but not stupid enough to get worked up o...

Re: Strange New Error Message

I don't know why I didn't think of this before. I've done nothing with this problem because the only alternative I could think of was to reformat the hard drive and start from scratch. That would mean reloading the MacOS as well as all my programs. The time involved was just too much. But last nigh...

Re: 1 Password

I've used 1Password for at least 10 years now and I wouldn't want to try computing without it. Yes, I put in my banking passwords as well as all my credit card information. All of that and everything else in 1Password is encrypted. I also record my drivers license, passport information, and software...

Re: Change From .pages To .doc En Masse

I'm really impressed with the iWork Converter program. This morning I identified 168 Pages documents I wanted reformatted as Word documents. I had already created a new folder for the conversions and told iWork Converter to drop the new files into the new folder. I just drag-and-droppped the Pages f...

Re: Change From .pages To .doc En Masse

One comment about CloudConvert which was recommended in this thread. Before I took a chance with the standalone program iWork Converter I went to the CloudConvert website and signed up for the "free" account that would let me convert a few files each day. I just wanted to see how it worked. After si...

Re: Change From .pages To .doc En Masse

I decided to tell my MacOS security to let iWork Converter run on my Mac. It works perfectly. What seems to happen is I'll select an iWork file (Pages, Numbers, or Keynote) and drag it to an area within Converter. Then Converter opens the appropriate iWork program, does the conversion to the format ...
