Re: Photos versus iPhoto

Continuing in the quest to understand Photos (and its complicated and incomprehensible relation with "The Cloud") I noted this series of questions on today's Macintouch. Here is a link to the whole topic: http://www.macintouch.com/readerreports/applications/index.html#d04jan2016 But if you think you...

Re: SMUG newsletter from 1998

Jay, thanks for this wonderful and seasonal post. I have not been through all the old SMUG documents, but several years ago I received and archived quite a number of old SMUG documents from the past. Anyone else in the club who has old SMUG memorabilia should make me aware of it so that I can add po...

Craig Gottschalk has agreed to assume the president position at the time when I will need to leave the club and move away. I have agr...

Re: Safari STILL not remembering passwords!

Here's that puzzling Keychain item which IS in my correctly-working dummy login but NOT in my normal login.

Re: Safari STILL not remembering passwords!

This problem is now, officially, driving me CRAZY. I've now run Keychain Repair numerous times. Have deleted all the Safari prefs that I could find in my Library. Created a new Login Keychain. Etc. etc. etc. As noted earlier, another login on my computer saves passwords in Safari and works JUST FINE...

Re: Topic here and in El Capitan: AirDrop no workee

Looks like you've got us stumped here! Have you tried doing these same operations in a "dummy login?" That is, a new, blank, un-used login that you've created just to test this out? I do recall that AirDrop only worked on Macs after a certain date. I know that my mid-2010 model didn't do it... but I...

I think I still may have the Yosemite installer on one of my backup disks. But I agree with Stephen that as a practical matter you would see no difference between Yosemite and El Capitan. The main thing I'm running into when helping folks with older computers is that these newer systems (both Yosemi...

On Apple Human Interface Guidelines

Today's posting on Macintouch (http://www.macintouch.com. A site worth checking out) refers to an essay on Apple's Human Interface Guidelines.... and specifically about how Apple has been moving steadily towards a gorgeous-appearing but increasingly hard-to-use interface. See the intro to the articl...

Re: Safari STILL not remembering passwords!

I was able to look over the two links you sent (prior to your most recent)... and see that Apple's advice is to "Reset the Keychain," whereas the other website suggests simply deleting the Library/Keychain item with the 26 character alphanumeric name (which apparently stores the Keychain database). ...
