Re: Time Machine Problem

Does this message prevent you from using your Time Machine backup? I get a message similar to this after doing a restart and it says it is unable to connect with/see a computer that I have listed to share data with. I just ignore the message, say OK, and go on. When I want to go/share with the other...

Re: iPad Pages & PDFs

I have inserted Microsoft Word pages into an Excel file as an image/picture and adjusted margins/page breaks to created a continuous flowing document. You may try this using Numbers (I think that is the name of the spreadsheet program in the Pagess package).

Re: Stalled Startup

"The rest of the story." To close out this thread; the files downloaded fine from the flash drive and I now have them backed up in three places.

Re: Visual Voicemail and Cellular Data

So, Stephen did you find the answer to why your wife's phone was draining the battery in a day? The reason I ask is my phone doesn't last near as long as my wife's. We both have iPhone 5C's, but she is running iOS 7 and I am using iOS 8. My phone is only good for approx. two days if I leave it on/sl...

Remember this computer is running on 10.3. I just tried to attach a picture, with no success. I'll have to upda...

Re: Stalled Startup

Holding the option key showed that the only startup device is my Mac HD. After the winding clock stopped, I clicked on the icon (nothing happened-there wasn't any kind of acknowledgement that I made a selection) and then the right facing arrow to proceed. It went to the startup window and started pr...
