@jsnell Don't want to dump TM, but if I can't get it to work I may not have a choice. I would think Lion versioning would *lessen* the need.

@jsnell Might have been a good opportunity to add support for paid upgrades…

Seriously thinking about dropping Time Machine in favor of CrashPlan and increased SuperDupering.

via Echofon

Now Time Machine is giving me the -50 error using a different drive, freshly erased, in a different enclosure.

via Echofon

Got the dreaded Time Machine "Error: (-50) Creating directory Backups.backupdb", even after just erasing the whole drive.

via Echofon

@jtamboli Yeah, I was trying to avoid doing that because I've built up so many good corrections over the years…

via Echofon in reply to jtamboli

@irons Well, good to know that that would supposedly work. I feel like I've made the same corrections way more than 5 times…

via Echofon in reply to irons

@nriley I wish there were a way to go in and edit the dictionary. I made some mistakes, and now it keeps auto-completing to incorrect words.

via Echofon in reply to nriley

@ianbeck How did they do it? I thought eInk was eInk, and Amazon indicated recently that it was going to be stagnant for a while.

via Echofon in reply to ianbeck

Mac App Store weirdness: one app update ready for sale but completely invisible in the store; the other's reviews only show in Safari.

via Echofon

@leebennett That's a long time. Did you design your own certificate? :-)

via Echofon in reply to leebennett

@stevenf Maybe I should give that a try. iTunes is not very good at picking up changes to projects/albums in Aperture.

via Echofon in reply to stevenf

@leebennett How do you edit the photos non-destructively? Does Lightroom work with that system?

via Echofon in reply to leebennett

Good to see that Shine will be fixing the star icon for settings and the horrible handling of location names:

via Echofon

@leebennett And it wasn't linked using a guest pass?

via Echofon in reply to leebennett

@adamengst I thought there was something wrong with my Mac when dragging out of the sidebar wasn't working.

via Echofon in reply to adamengst

dropdmg DropDMG 3.0.7 is now available:

@mhenders Keeping track of files archived to external hard drives and DVDs, and also the contents of clone backups.

via Echofon in reply to mhenders

Updating CDFinder. Probably my second-longest-used app after BBEdit. (Photoshop is no longer installed.)

via Echofon

First kernel panic in a long time: installing the Snow Leopard Font Update.

via Echofon

@nriley The surprising thing is that it's much faster to transfer files up to Dropbox and back down than just locally over WiFi/WebDAV.

via Echofon in reply to nriley

Recently discovered that GoodReader supports Dropbox folder syncing. No more fiddly Bonjour WebDAV that only works right after rebooting.

via Echofon

@petermaurer Yeah, I've never thought of using Acorn for photos, either. Got Aperture for that. Acorn's for screenshots and drawings.

via Echofon in reply to petermaurer

@ccgus Acorn's Tools palette is great—maybe my favorite feature. Not sure how he concludes that Photoshop Elements is "more streamlined."

via Echofon in reply to ccgus

@AaronHillegass Probably rare. For me, I think that error has always been in situations with adjacent string literals.

via Echofon in reply to AaronHillegass

@AaronHillegass For strings, not using #define can prevent accidental compile-time concatenation.

via Echofon in reply to AaronHillegass

Read about Find Any File in Macworld and giving it a try. Nostalgic Copland-style results window. Doesn't show any results until done.

via Echofon

@uliwitness Yep, you can always make a garbage string with MacRoman. :-)

via Echofon in reply to uliwitness

@pilky I've been doing days+launches for a long time; seems to work well. Problem with data trials: I want to see it handle all my data!

via Echofon in reply to pilky

Changing the SMTP port to the one that Mail actually uses fixed the iPhoto sending problem. Thanks, everyone.

via Echofon

@_karsten_ I'm pretty sure the AppleScripts aren't used with the new theme layouts.

via Echofon in reply to _karsten_

@mikebradshaw Hmm. Mail is set to use ports 25, 465, and 587; iPhoto uses 587. I bet 465 is the right one…

via Echofon in reply to mikebradshaw

@CraicDesign I'll give that a try, thanks. Too bad that won't work with the templates, though.

via Echofon in reply to CraicDesign

Mom's iPhoto '11 can't send mail, even though it has the same settings as Apple Mail. Oh well, can always drag to Mail's Dock icon.

via Echofon

@Chealion @pilky @wilshipley I don't know—it's not the speed, but external drive systems seem to introduce an element of unreliability.

via Echofon in reply to Chealion

@jsnell Yeah, video in is what I meant. So maybe with the right cable?

via Echofon in reply to jsnell

@jsnell Would be great if you could figure out why they dropped support for older MacBook Pros. Thought Thunderbolt was backwards compatible

via Echofon in reply to jsnell

@retrophisch Comcast has been doing that for a while now for me.

via Echofon in reply to retrophisch

@gittower Any keyboard shortcuts for picking repositories *within* the Dashboard?
