Crash report comment: "I ran out of disk space."

All of a sudden, La La is finding trades for me.

I don't think I know anyone who uses QuickBooks and likes it; it's ripe for the indie treatment.

via Twitterrific

The lady said this could only happen if there's a "server problem" or if I had uninstalled it.

via Twitterrific

Though I've changed nothing, QuickBooks unregistered itself. The Web-based activation didn't work so I had to call Intuit.

@sethdill Most of its features probably fall outside what can be done with a language module, though.

via Twitterrific in reply to sethdill

@sethdill The current version has been working great for me. If you're ever looking for ideas, check out AUCTeX for Emacs.

via Twitterrific in reply to sethdill

@sethdill Yes, although these days I mostly write Python code to generate the TeX for me.

via Twitterrific in reply to sethdill

TeX caught an invalid URL for me.

via Twitterrific

@leebennett No, you're right; that's the lone exception.

via Twitterrific in reply to leebennett

@leebennett Just one from Turner, AFAIK, and I'm in the process of adding another VN at Paul's request.

via Twitterrific in reply to leebennett

October has turned out to be a Very Nice month.

@danielpunkass Is your SpamSieve rule at the top of the list?

via Twitterrific in reply to danielpunkass

@danielpunkass Could you e-mail me some log info about your sister? http://tinyurl.com/j6zeq

@leebennett I'm waiting to hear back from Pair about how to do it for ATPM mail. I suspect it's possible, but the obvious way didn't work.

via Twitterrific in reply to leebennett

@retrophisch I use it all the time with LaunchBar, TextEdit, and OmniOutliner.

via Twitterrific in reply to retrophisch

@retrophisch Whereas on a regular keyboard I can just press the thumb straight into the space between Option and Command.

via Twitterrific in reply to retrophisch

@retrophisch I found the easiest way was little, Thumb x 2 (sideways), index.

via Twitterrific in reply to retrophisch

@retrophisch That just doesn't work for me. Maybe that explains why I was terrible at guitar.

via Twitterrific in reply to retrophisch

@leebennett It should be fixable on the Mac. Your personal server has an SSL certificate?

via Twitterrific in reply to leebennett

DreamHost support doesn't know how to avoid certificate warnings when using IMAPS on an iPhone.

via Twitterrific

@retrophisch How do you type Command-Option-Shift-V on the new keyboard?

via Twitterrific in reply to retrophisch

Color profile spontaneously changed; going to Displays pref pane.

via Twitterrific

After the firmware update, the MBP got stuck with a blank screen, but after power-cycling it seems to work fine.

via Twitterrific

VersionTracker has undocumented change notes: http://www.versiontracke...

via Twitterrific

Does louder volume in 1.1.1 mean that the increments will be even larger than before?

via Twitterrific

I seem to be getting more tech support questions from people who are relatively new to the Mac.

via Twitterrific

@leebennett I know it sounds crazy, but it works. The onion (or garlic) likes the metal more than your skin.

via Twitterrific in reply to leebennett

@leebennett No, not something abrasive. Just rub a stainless steel spoon or chef's knife (or even a sink) under cold running water.

via Twitterrific in reply to leebennett

@leebennett Rub with stainless steel and cold water.

via Twitterrific in reply to leebennett

@leebennett That's my guess. Do you know how to test it?

via Twitterrific in reply to leebennett

I guess the iMac isn't OK after all; the clock seems to always be wrong now.

via Twitterrific

GrowlHelperApp is using 160 MB of RAM. Was going to file a bug, but the site seems to be down.

via Twitterrific

@leebennett Sounds likes bug in ME since the default shortcut for BR is Command-Enter.

via PocketTweets in reply to leebennett

@leebennett Some of the code loads into every app. I see it in lots of crash reports.

via PocketTweets in reply to leebennett

@leebennett Saft is basically a haxie, you know.

via Twitterrific in reply to leebennett

@leebennett Doesn't MarsEdit 2 have its own keyboard shortcut editor for the markup commands?

via Twitterrific in reply to leebennett

@leebennett I used to use WindowShade, but I stopped with OS X and actually don't miss it.

via Twitterrific in reply to leebennett

@leebennett You can open pref panes with LaunchBar and edit most keyboard shortcuts with System Preferences.

via Twitterrific in reply to leebennett

@retrophisch Yeah, after I saw that keyboard I was wondering if I should change the default capture key. F1 is so nice, though...

via Twitterrific in reply to retrophisch

I guess this explains why I blew through 4 phone surge protectors this summer.

via Twitterrific

The phone was down because there were phone wires nearby in the ground.

via Twitterrific

Phone/DSL and power are restored. The transformer was broken and arcing into the ground.

via Twitterrific

@retrophisch Want to review the keyboard? :-)

via web in reply to retrophisch

@leebennett I'm not sure. There'a been lots of rain but no lightning. The neighbours are down, too.

via PocketTweets in reply to leebennett

Phone and power are down.

via PocketTweets

@retrophisch Right. Several have required warranty service during year 1. After year 3, AppleCare wouldn't have helped, anyway.

via Twitterrific in reply to retrophisch

@leebennett I haven't gotten hooked on Twitter yet because the service seems to be so unreliable.

via Twitterrific in reply to leebennett

@leebennett Still haven't quite figured out this Twitterrific thing.

via Twitterrific in reply to leebennett

@mjtsai So I guess my streak of never having a Mac die during years 2 or 3 continues.

via Twitterrific

@leebennett I put my RAM back in, plugged in back into the original UPS, and plugged in the drives, and now it seems to be back to normal.

via Twitterrific in reply to leebennett

Several hours later, the iMac spontaneously started up, while I was on the other side of the room.

via Twitterrific

@leebennett GarageSale is pretty nice. I liked it better than iSale.

via Twitterrific in reply to leebennett

@retrophisch Nope. This morning it was sleeping and wouldn't wake up or power off. I unplugged it, and now it won't turn on.

via Twitterrific in reply to retrophisch

The iMac appears to be dead.

via Twitterrific

TidBITS redesign looks nice, but feels ad-heavy. Seems more like a group blog than a weekly newsletter.

via Twitterrific

@retrophisch Belated congrats on getting out of the cast!

via Twitterrific in reply to retrophisch

Wondering if I should try MarsEdit when I get back to blogging. Last time I looked, none of the clients stuck, but that was years ago.

via Twitterrific

@leebennett Me neither. It kind of made the interface look like Jaguar.

via PocketTweets in reply to leebennett

Keyboard is a bit stiffer than the MacBook one, though.

via PocketTweets

iMac at Best Buy set to 256 colors and had misconfigured AirPort.
