Re: Mac OS X startup disk message

I just updated Safari to 5.1.2 for Snow Leopard 10.6.8 and it seems to be working fine.

Re: Convert video files on Mac ?

If you are just editing audio extracted from video; I use GarageBand to edit the sound track (music).

Re: Facebook Phishing And/Or Identity Theft?

Do you know Teri? If not, then I would be very cautious and not go there. If you know her, give her a call and ask how she requested to be your friend.

Re: A little sympathy for our Windows to Mac switching frien

It works the other way also. When I am visiting family and I have to use their Windows machines I come away with the same type of frustrations. This doesn't make sense! Mac does it this way much better, etc., etc. I don't get any sympathy from them. "Why do you keep buying those expensive Macs", etc...

Re: Apple releases Mac OS X 10.6.8

Just successfully downloaded/installed 10.6.8 and Java update via "Apple>Software Update" onto a MacBook Pro Core 2 Duo purchased late 2009. Everything seems to be working fine. I quickly tested my old printer and it still works. My old Microsoft Office Mac X suite still works.

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...
