 Apparently Microsoft are not doing this any longer so I have to  revert to 
 3rd party software!!

Hi Chris,

 Did you perform a standard installation or custom installation of Mac Office?

Microsoft returned the Analysis Toolpak add-in that it removed from Excel 2008.
Microsoft says that the new version of Excel supports the add-in the same way 
Excel 2008 did, and that the add-in’s basic functions work in Excel 2011

Re: PDF printing

2011-07-02 Thread Ronda Brown
Hi Bill,

I’ve only now read this thread. Were the PDFs you are having the text quality 
with when printed, created in Pages Application?
If so, try this:

In Pages:
1. Go to “File   Print”
2. When the dialogue box appears, click on “PDF”
3. Select “Save As Postscript”
4. Then double-click to open this file  “.ps” and it will convert itself to 
a PDF
5. Then name it  save it as a PDF using Preview ( it will be showing Format: 
PDF)

Cheers,
Ronni

Re: Mac OSX 10.6.8 Available

2011-07-02 Thread Ronda Brown
Hi Derek,

The “Combo updates contain all incremental updates and will update files that 
could have become corrupted.
A combo update is every previous update in a single update package. You can 
update any 10.6 version to 10.6.8.

Combo updaters will install on the same version as they're applying--no need to 
roll back or do a clean install. 
So if you think you've got a bad  10.6.7 install from a regular update, just 
run the 10.6.7 Combo Updater on that system.

Delta updaters can only take you from one version to the next. For example: 
10.6.7 to 10.6.8. 
If somehow the 10.6.7 is missing something it should have, and that something 
isn't changed between 10.6.7 and 10.6.8 it will still be bad after the delta 
update.

I always recommended going to the Apple site and manually downloading the Combo 
system upgrades; the only way to be sure that everything that needs to be in 
place is in place. 

Cheers,
Ronni

Hi Derek,

I’ve included FYI my post to WAMUG back on 30 June 2011 Subject: Installing 
10.6.8 update:
Follow these instructions and you should not experience any problems.
-
Download the OS X 10.6.8 Update Combo from here: 
http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1399


Install OS X Updates correctly:

DON’T FORGET:
1. Backup your system BEFORE installing the Combo Update (or Update).

2. Repair Permissions before and after installing the Combo Update (or Update).

3. Turn OFF Time Machine in System Preferences

4. Unmount  Disconnect any External USB  Firewire Drives / Time Machine

5. Install the Combo Update (or Update)

6. Run Software Update after installing the Updates

7. Repair Permissions

8. Connect your Backup Drive

9. Go to System Preferences  Time Machine and Turn Time Machine ON
Let Time Machine complete a  backup.

** Apple warning for installing Updates: 
Do not interrupt the installation process once you have started to update your 
system.

As I have said numerous times on WAMUG List “Do Not Upgrade if anything is 
amiss with your system”.

As is the case with all updates, if there’s anything at all amiss with your 
system before the update, the update is likely to expose them.

Cheers,
Ronni

Re: PDF printing

2011-07-02 Thread Ronda Brown
Hi Bill,

I meant to mention before that for best quality printing of PDFs.
Save as PDF-X - Generates a PDF-X of your print job to a destination of your 
choice. 
PDF-X files follow a series of printing related requirements not found in 
standard PDFs, and are used by professional print shops.

So I guess you could leave the “Postscript” bit out ;-)

 Not sure I can help but what do you mean by poor quality? Is it that 
 the text badly laid-out or is it that he individual letters are rough?
 
 Could it be that you have your printer set to draft quality?

Hi, does anyone in the group have any experience with DNLA servers on MACOS ? 
are there any recommended ones?

Hi, Hugh

It really depends on what you wanted to do and what devices you need it to
work with.

As certain software packages are best designed for certain devices like the
Sony PlayStation or at Microsoft Xbox.

Telstra starts censoring the internet

2011-07-02 Thread Matthew Healey

http://delimiter.com.au/2011/07/01/telstras-interpol-filter-goes-live/

Apparently Telstra is now censoring the connections of it's customers. 
Initially they appear to be doing it under the guise of child pornography, but 
I would expect them to start widening that fairly soon. Stephen Conroy must be 
wetting himself with joy.

Don't be surprised if you can no longer access your favourite site that points 
out how completely incompetent and corrupt our politicians are.

Serious problem

2011-07-02 Thread Pat Scott
Yesterday the boot disk of my Mac Pro suddenly began filling up with something 
unknown. Tech tool Pro put up messages saying the disk had only 13% free space 
left, out of 320 GB.   The only thing I could think to do was try to find out 
where the excess was accumulating.  This seemed to be the Application Support 
folder in my Home folder. I moved an assortment of the folders to another disk 
(there are 3 disks), and this moved the added GBs out of the boot disk, so it 
was back to 140 GB free.

Today I did various jobs on the computer and things seemed normal until I tried 
to install Security Update 2011-004. The message came up that this update could 
not be installed on the boot disk because it was not suitable.  

Then I tried to install the OS 10.6.8 update, and it did install.   I tried the 
Security update again, and got the same message. Then Tech Tool Pro started its 
warnings again only this time there was only 4% of free space left and it was 
going down fast. Within a few minutes it was down to 600MB, so I shut it down 
quick.

I am totally at a loss as to what I should do.  To make things even more 
difficult, from Monday I have to be away for ten days.

I hope someone can advise me.

Thanks,

Pat

Hi, Hugh

It really depends on what you wanted to do and what devices you need it to
work with. As certain software packages are best designed for certain
devices like the Sony PlayStation or at Microsoft Xbox.

DNLA is mostly referenced with TVs and most server software that you will
find on the Mac only support certain models of certain brand TVs You might
have some better luck searching for DLNA UPnP AV Servers Mac But if you
give me some more information on what you want to do I should be able to
give you a good recommendation as I've tried several different software
packages on Mac OS X over the last few years.

Here are some useful links

Re: Serious problem

Hi Pat

I am probably less qualified than others to respond, but in the
interests of urgency I can think of two causes:

  your hard disk is rapidly becoming corrupt and there is a
decreasing amount of usable space.
  something is writing huge amounts of stuff to some sort of log
file

For 1, I'd boot up off the installation DVD (hold down C on startup)
and run disk utility. Failing that reboot off the installation DVD
in diagnostic mode (hold down D on startup) and run the hardware
test.  Techtools might help you here too, but I haven't used these
for 5+ years.

If 1 is OK, look for files which are very large and increasing in
size.

Hope this helps, but things might not be looking good...

Hi Pat,

In System Preferences  Other - TechTool Protection, check the Directory Backup 
Interval.
If you have it set for every 4 hours,  if it is doing this on every drive that 
is ever connected to your Mac (backup drives / Time Machine etc)  it can create 
a very large folder.

I had similar to what you have explained below happen on a client’s computer 
and I checked the TechTool Pro Protection folder and it was over 100GB in size!

The folder containing all the TechTool directory backups is located in the main 
Hard Drive  Library  Application Support  TechTool Protection folder.
Drag any that are no longer required to the Trash, you will be asked for your 
administrator password.
Empty the trash when you have finished.

Restart you Mac.

Re: Serious problem

2011-07-02 Thread Daniel Kerr

Also, just to add to Ronni's post.
If you still find after searching that nothing turns up large files
anywhere a couple of other things to look out for are:-
1) backups that are saving back to the original hard drive instead of
another drive (eg Silverkeeper, Time Machine, Deja Vu.) Sometimes if the
destination drive disappears it can change the script and save back to
itself.
2) invisible system log files. I can't remember off the top of my head
exactly where these ones are, but if you have no joy post back to the list
and I'll check my notes for the location of it.

I've had both the above happen with client where the backup was backing up
to the same drive as the original data was and was eating up the hard drive
space.
And on another occasion had another client who had a corrupt system log
file. As quickly as they were deleting things to make space it was chewing
it back up again. In fact it got down to zero KBs of free space! I was
surprised the machine was still running when I went out there to fix it!
Once I found the hidden corrupt files it returned about 250GB of space back
to them!!

Just a couple of thoughts off the top of my head.

Hope that helps.

Kind regards
Daniel

There is no ValuePak Setup on my mac or on the install DVD? Do I need to

I have done the latest OS upgrade and that did not cause the problem.  Any

RE: DNLA servers

2011-07-02 Thread Hugh Griffiths
Kyle thanks for the info, what I am trying to do is to connect my bravia to the 
internet, it has a Ethernet port and reading the manual ( which is not very 
clear) it says I need to have a dnla server, I am not really sure what I want 
to do, it just seems that if I have an Ethernet port I should be using it, I 
suspect I will only get the same stuff I get from my apple tv in terms of 
connectivity, if that is the case then I don't really need to do it.

Hi, Hugh

It really depends on what you wanted to do and what devices you need it to work 
with. As certain software packages are best designed for certain devices like 
the Sony PlayStation or at Microsoft Xbox.

DNLA is mostly referenced with TVs and most server software that you will find 
on the Mac only support certain models of certain brand TVs You might have some 
better luck searching for DLNA UPnP AV Servers Mac But if you give me some 
more information on what you want to do I should be able to give you a good 
recommendation as I've tried several different software packages on Mac OS X 
over the last few years.

Here are some useful links

Re: Rotating text in Preview

2011-07-02 Thread Philippe Chaperon
Good morning Chris  All,

I am not sure if this can help, but I do not have the Analysis ToolPak in my
Office 2011 version (latest one). Instead this I what Excel returns when I
did a search for the Analysis Tool:

Cause: Excel 2011 does not include the Analysis ToolPak.
Solution: Download StatPlus:mac LE for free from AnalystSoft, and then use
StatPlus:mac LE with Excel 2011.

You can use StatPlus:mac LE to perform many of the functions that were
previously available in the Analysis ToolPak, such as regressions,
histograms, analysis of variance (ANOVA), and t-tests.

   1.

   Visit the AnalystSoft Web
sitehttp://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=148188[image:
   Click this link to open a browser
window.]http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=148188,
   and then follow the instructions on the download page.
   2.

   After you have downloaded and installed StatPlus:mac LE, open the
   workbook that contains the data that you want to analyze.
   3.

   Open StatPlus:mac LE. The functions are located on the StatPlus:mac LE
   menus.

Note  Excel 2011 does not include Help for StatPlus:mac LE. Help for
StatPlus:mac LE is provided by AnalystSoft.
Hope this can help.

Kind regards,

Philippe Chaperon

 Hi Ronni

 Thanks very much for your reply and link. I had another good look at the
 installation disk and found the customise section and included the VBA
 install.

 However there is no sign of the Analysis ToolPak.
 When I reopened Excel I have a small window appear, saying 'Cannot find the
 Analysis ToolPak'. Please run the ValuePack Setup to install the Analysis
 ToolPak.

 There is no ValuePak Setup on my mac or on the install DVD? Do I need to
 download this?

 Kindest regards and many thanks Ronni

With two finger tap:
Try this.

2. Log out, log back in, now check it again.

 Thanks, Greg.  MoneyWorks Cashbook fills the bill admirably.  
 Glenn, Justin, I have looked at saasu which is a very nice concept but 
 way beyond my very simple needs.  
 I will do the GST for this quarter from eRecord then start a fresh year 
 with MoneyWorks.

 Hello Severin
 
 I have been very happy with Moneyworks. A New Zealand company that 
 understands Macs and Australian GST. Here is the link. www.cognito.co.nz.
 
 They have 3 different packages to suit basic to professional book

 For years I have used eRecord, the ATO's free accounting package.  It

 looking for an alternative, looking forward to Snow Leopard and Lion.  
 My requirements are simple.  Cash Book only covering sales, 
 expenditures and GST.  Other packages that I have looked at, like 
 eRecord itself, do much more and are somewhat daunting at first glance. 
  
 Comments, suggestions and tales of experiences welcomed.

Re: DNLA servers

2011-07-02 Thread Neil Houghton
Hi Hugh,

OK, given that I always bullshit best when unencumbered by any real
knowledge of the facts ;o)     a couple of thoughts:

 I suspect I will only get the same stuff I get from my apple tv in terms of
 connectivity, if that is the case then I don¹t really need to do it.

Not necessarily, I believe some TVs do let you directly view ABC¹s iview
which AppleTV doesn¹t and which, in my book, is definitely worth sorting if
possible.


I would have thought that the dnla server would have been needed to access
media on your home network, rather than the internet stuff?? In which case,
you probably do have that side covered by your AppleTV.

Have you tried just connecting the ethernet port on your TV to a spare port
on your internet router and seeing if that gives you any additional internet
content?

As I say, just a couple of thoughts based more on my gut feel than any real
knowledge ;o)


Cheers



Neil

 Kyle thanks for the info, what I am trying to do is to connect my bravia to

 Hi, Hugh
 
  
 
 It really depends on what you wanted to do and what devices you need it to
 work with. As certain software packages are best designed for certain devices
 like the Sony PlayStation or at Microsoft Xbox.
 
  
 
 DNLA is mostly referenced with TVs and most server software that you will
 find on the Mac only support certain models of certain brand TVs You might
 have some better luck searching for DLNA UPnP AV Servers Mac But if you give
 me some more information on what you want to do I should be able to give you a
 good recommendation as I've tried several different software packages on Mac
 OS X over the last few years.

Re: Serious problem

2011-07-02 Thread Pat
Thanks so much, everyone, Ronni, Rob and Daniel,

It looks like it was TechToolPro that was the culprit.  The main disk was down 
to 0 and now it has 163 GB free after I threw out the entire TechTool folder.  
Neither of the other 2 disks had any problem.

Is TechTool of real value, worth having even if it is likely to go insane?  And 
more and more we put our lives in the tender (not) mercy of computers and their 
software.

It's an enormous relief, but I am going to keep an eagle eye on that 163 GB to 
see if it starts melting away again (I've been watching it all morning, and it 
still seems OK).

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Pat

 Hi Pat,
 
 In System Preferences  Other - TechTool Protection, check the Directory 
 Backup Interval.
 If you have it set for every 4 hours,  if it is doing this on every drive 
 that is ever connected to your Mac (backup drives / Time Machine etc)  it can 
 create a very large folder.
 
 I had similar to what you have explained below happen on a client’s computer 
 and I checked the TechTool Pro Protection folder and it was over 100GB in 
 size!
 
 The folder containing all the TechTool directory backups is located in the 
 main Hard Drive  Library  Application Support  TechTool Protection folder.
 Drag any that are no longer required to the Trash, you will be asked for your 
 administrator password.
 Empty the trash when you have finished.
 
 Restart you Mac.
 
 Cheers,
 Ronni

 Yesterday the boot disk of my Mac Pro suddenly began filling up with 
 something unknown. Tech tool Pro put up messages saying the disk had only 
 13% free space left, out of 320 GB.   The only thing I could think to do 
 was try to find out where the excess was accumulating.  This seemed to be 
 the Application Support folder in my Home folder. I moved an assortment of 
 the folders to another disk (there are 3 disks), and this moved the added 
 GBs out of the boot disk, so it was back to 140 GB free.
 
 Today I did various jobs on the computer and things seemed normal until I 
 tried to install Security Update 2011-004. The message came up that this 
 update could not be installed on the boot disk because it was not suitable. 
  
 
 Then I tried to install the OS 10.6.8 update, and it did install.   I tried 
 the Security update again, and got the same message. Then Tech Tool Pro 
 started its warnings again only this time there was only 4% of free space 
 left and it was going down fast. Within a few minutes it was down to 600MB, 
 so I shut it down quick.
 
 I am totally at a loss as to what I should do.  To make things even more 
 difficult, from Monday I have to be away for ten days.
 
 I hope someone can advise me.
 
 Thanks,
 
 Pat
