Re: Apple releases Mac OS X 10.6.8

There is some discussion on MacInTouch about older programs (games for one) not running after upgrading to 10.6.8. One person was speculating that Apple was getting folks prepared for Lion and the 10.6.8 system won't run the old things that were using Rosetta in 10.6.7. Has anyone experienced this w...

Re: Rotate Mail Attachment

Jay, I (just now) tried your Save As technique in Preview (rotated-new name), then to the desktop and dragged to the e-mail. It did not stay rotated to the vertical position. Jerry, I did give it a completely new name so I know I was using the Saved As version. However, this may be because I am usin...

Re: Printing Question: Scaling

I drag the screen-shot into an Excel workbook page and resize the image via the Formatting Palette or grabbing the corner handles and dragging it smaller to fit within the margins. I set all of the workbook margins to zero. I forget if Excel will accept a .png file. If not, I do a save-as in preview...

Mail

Occasionally when I receive an e-mail message it is spread across the screen (horizontally) so far that I have to scroll to see it. I have to keep scrolling back and forth in order to read a sentence. Is this something I can correct on my end, via mail preferences, or is it totally dependent on the ...

Re: Simple Network Download Question

I use Qwest and Olypen and I experience the same type of slowdown on downloads. I'm glad Jerry asked the question because I have been afraid to ask thinking it was a dumb question and somehow I just didn't understand the process. I have never seen it speed back up, but the rate of decay certainly va...

Re: New iMacs

Jay,
I think you may be able to set up a niche business if you keep machines that can run old Mac systems; at least from System 7 on. We will all have old files, at some point, we may need to access and retrieve data.

Re: Security Update

Re: Security Update

But, I don't see anything in this link that tells me how I find out what specific update is loaded on my computer. Did I miss something?
