Re: Simplifying Calendar OKs on a Mac

2019-10-03 Thread Daniel Kerr
Hi Stephen

Another thought on this one….
For the Shared Calendar you’re using. Right click on the calendar itself, and 
choose “Get Info”. On the little drop down window that shows up, there is an 
“Ignore Alerts”. If that’s ticked then try un-ticking it then click OK. See if 
the alerts stop for the new ones that come in afterwards.
That can be another place they are coming from as well.

Kind regards
Daniel

Hi Stephen

Try ticking it and then un-ticking it again, then see what happens with new 
“changes” that comet through.

I tested it last night and when it was ticked, I got the “!” Showing like you 
mentioned (which I normally get). Without it ticked, the shared changes just 
changed with no notification or the “OK” to click. So that setting did adjust 
it for my Calendar. (In Mojave).
Also check what setting he has for the shared calendar as well, as that can 
have an affect on it also.

Hope that helps.

Hi Stephen

Try the following should solve it -
In Calendar. Go to the Calendar menu then Preferences. 
Go too Advanced. 
Un-tick “Ask before sending changes to events”.
You should then find new changes just happen automatically when a calendar is 
updated or refreshed (eg using Command-R to force a Refresh).

Hope that helps.
Kind regards

Re: MAIL PROBLEMS

2019-08-26 Thread Daniel Kerr
Hi Jewels

If Mail is definitely searching the correct Mailbox (as you can set it to 
search just one folder, just the Inbox, or “all folders”) then it could be an 
issue with the Spotlight search for it.
You can set it to “stop” searching in Spotlight, then after a few minutes 
“Removing” it again to make it start searching.
Another option is to remove the Envelope files which forces it to reindex email 
once it opens again.

With these things, you need to ensure you have a good backup before you start 
(just incase something goes wrong, you can then go back to the “original” files.

To do the rebuild of Spotlight and the “stop/go” solution, have a look at this 
link here - 
https://support.4it.com.au/article/search-not-working-or-incomplete-results-in-osx-el-capitan-mac-mail/
(Section 2 covers it. And Section 3 covers the removal of envelope files).

If still no success, then you can force Spotlight to “Reset” itself a few 
different ways, so this can sometimes help as well.
Again, ensure you have a good backup before you start. And you have to be 
“slightly comfortable “ in using Terminal for parts of this.
https://www.boxaid.com/blog/search-not-working-mac-el-capitan/

But either of those should hopefully get it working for you. (Start with the 
easy ones first, then work your way through to the later ones).

Hope that information helps.
Kind regards
Daniel

Re: iPhone 8 notifications

2019-08-01 Thread Daniel Kerr
Hi Jennifer

Do you have “WIFI Calling” showing at the top of the screen (normally near the 
left hand side top where it might show the phone company name? As sometimes 
this can be a bit hit and miss I find for people as well.
You can also check it in - Settings - Mobile (Or Cellular) - Wi-Fi Calling. If 
On, try setting it to Off and see if it helps.

Another thing can sometimes help those sort of things is a reset of the Network 
Settings.
You can do this by going to Settings - General - Reset. Choose “Reset Network 
Settings”. (But just that one, none of the others as they wipe everything).
With a Network Reset, you won’t lose any of your data, but if your iPhone was 
on a wireless network, you’ll have to re-join it back to the network. Most 
other settings are fine).
I had a hiccup with one setting and did the above and found it fixed it, so it 
can be worth a try as well.

Kind regards
Daniel

Re: MacBook Pro with Wifi signal but no Internet

2019-06-04 Thread Daniel Kerr
Hi Peter

Yes, the devil is in the detail,…lol. Glad you got it all working. I’ve had a 
similar job to that one as well. (The culprit was s similar thing by Intego). 
Same error message and similar fix for it.
It’s due to the part of that software not being fully optimised for the System. 
(So the two don’t play well together.)

Glad you saw the full error message in the end. And all is working.
Kind regards
Daniel

Re: MacBook Pro with Wifi signal but no Internet

2019-06-04 Thread Daniel Kerr
Hi Peter

Also, have you tried restarting the internet/modem/router, just to refresh all 
DNS numbers. Sometimes they can get “locked”, so restarting the modem can 
refresh all of that.
Worth a try as well.

There are also some wireless settings that can be removed from Library - 
Preferences - SystemConfiguration. (Main Library, not the User Library).
But I’d try the modem restart first.

Kind regards
Daniel

Re: Excel - Office 365 Data Entry Form

2019-03-26 Thread Daniel Kerr
Hi Philippe

As I don’t really use those features, I’m not 100% sure,…but a quick look 
around found these,…if they help?
https://support.office.com/en-ie/article/create-forms-that-users-complete-or-print-in-excel-fd6797c2-30b6-42d8-9921-0feb123f5ca7

https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Excel/2019-Excel-on-Mac-no-data-entry-form/td-p/286728

The other option for those that require forms, is that you can still use Office 
2011 as well as the later Office365. (If you kept it on your computer).
If Office 2011 is still on your computer in the Applications folder then you 
can open Microsoft Excel and open the file you want from the “File - Open” menu.
(or you can right click on the file you want to work with and choose “Open 
With”. then choose “Microsoft Excel 14.7.7 or 14.x.x (Version 14.x.x is Office 
2011 and version 16.x.x is Office365 currently).

That hopefully will then give you the best of both worlds to access old data 
files that have,…and use the new version for other things.

But yes, in Office365 they did remove quite a few features that Mac users were 
used to unfortunately. (Even some keyboard commands that were around since 
Excel 1.0,…they decided to change the keyboard commands “to be the same as 
Windows”. Or if we had features that weren’t in the Windows version they 
removed them rather then “trying to put it into the Windows version”.
So either way,…we Mac users always seem to get the short end of the stick!

Hope something there helps.
Others who use it a lot more in-depth then me have some other answers.

Kind regards
Daniel

Re: Update Office 365

2019-03-18 Thread Daniel Kerr
Hi Severin

Another way around if still not having any success.
Log in to www.office.com and go to the “Install Office”  on that page,…should 
be a link once you log in, or listed under Account.
Then you can click “Install Office” orange button and it will download the full 
Office365 package install again.
Once there, you can download a larger installer, which will go through and 
overwrite the Office that is there with a slightly newer one.
I’ve found on some occasions that this then solves the “can’t install” issue.

Hope something there helps.
Kind regards
Daniel

Re: iPad.

2019-03-17 Thread Daniel Kerr
Hi Tony

Unfortunately yes, you will find those models quite slow now. It’s an iPad 2, 
which is no longer supported by Apple.
So they are starting to get a bit “long in the tooth” unfortunately. 
(Considering they were introduced in March 2011 and discontinued in March 2012.
So over 7-8 years old depending when purchased.

Sometimes as a last resort they can be reset back to factory settings and set 
up from scratch. This removes some of the “rubbish” that can be floating around 
behind the scenes.
But you’d want to ensure that you have everything backed up well and happy to 
“start from fresh” to set it up again.
Otherwise probably time to look for a newer second hand one, or a new one.

Hope that information helps.
Kind regards
Daniel

Just a quick reply as finishing off some other work.

A few things I would run to test it.
(sometimes I find Apple RAM test not all that helpful, whereas the following is 
very good).
Just be aware it can take a really really long time to test it all, as it does 
a huge amount of tests to all the modules. (I’ve seen some take hours to 
complete - 
Rember - http://www.kelleycomputing.net/rember/

I’d also run the hard drives just to rule them out. For a good program I use 
Smart Disk Utility from here - 
(the demo is fine for a one off test).
https://www.volitans-software.com/apps/smart-utility/

Could also be something “heating up” perhaps? So it runs for a while, until a 
part is heated up a bit more. (unlikely, but worth a check anyway).
For older iMac’s that have had hard drives replaced this is a good program to 
help control the Fans a bit more then the Apple one - 
http://www.hddfancontrol.com

But I’d be checking the RAM first would be my start.

Hope something there helps. If I think of more, I’ll post back as well.
Kind regards
Daniel

Hi Peter

Glad that helped.
Yes, sometimes I find the “going back to basics” and undoing all cables and 
everything is the simplest thing to try (and sometimes works). We tend 
sometimes to start with the “harder” fixes and forget the easy ones,..hehe.
Glad all is working again.

Hi Pete

Couple of other things you could try as well to just “Reset” it.

Try a PRAM reset.
https://support.apple.com/en-au/HT204063
(Basically restart with the Command-Option-P-R keys held down).

If still no success, try an SMC reset - 
https://support.apple.com/en-au/HT201295
(Basically, unplug everything except the power cable. Shut down the computer. 
Hold down the left hand side Shift-Control-option-power button at the same 
time. Hold for about 10 seconds. Then start like normal.

If no success still,.
unplug the USB cable from the drive itself. Plug the cable into the computer. 
(without the drive). Then after 10seconds, plug the USB drive into the USB 
cable and see how it goes.

Had success with a “non mounting drive” with some or all of those.

Re: MEMORY ON HD

2019-02-28 Thread Daniel Kerr
Hi Jewels

You could also have something like the following, which I have seen before 
(thought a bit harder to “locate” without seeing the machine.
- A corrupt log file. (an invisible hidden system file). It fills up and should 
delete itself when not needed. But I’ve seen them fill up. Then a restart 
clears some, until it starts filling the log up again and using space. 
(sometimes in GBs of data).
- a program that downloads updates / episodes /podcasts etc. Have seen various 
ones of these, that once it deletes some, it goes and downloads new ones. 
Therefor constantly always filling up space and removing it.
- iCloud syncing of various files.
- Photo syncing of various sizes
- Dropbox large files.

Just a few off the top of my head. There are quite a few others that can also 
affect it.

You could try Whatsize, as it sometimes help locate files that can be causing 
issues.

Hope that helps.

Re: MEMORY ON HD

2019-02-28 Thread Daniel Kerr
Hi Brian (and others).

Another one I find a lot, that can also take up space as well (which a lot of 
people don’t realise) is various old iPhone/iPad backups. These can take many 
GBs of space as well.
You can see what backups are still being stored as follows.

Open iTunes. From the iTunes menu go to Preferences. 
Then go to Devices.
In that window it will show all backups for all devices that are used. It will 
also show the last date it was done as well.
When you roll over the name of the device on the left side of the window, it 
will show model of device (e.g. iPhone 4, iPhone 4, iPad 3 etc).
If there are old ones you’re happy to no longer have there, you can click onto 
the old one and then down the bottom right of that window click “Delete Backup”.
This will then remove it from your computer.
(These backups are actually stored in the Home Library - Application support), 
but it saves digging through buried “invisible” folders to remove them manually.

This sometimes is a good way to free up a lot of space.
Kind regards
Daniel

Re: MEMORY ON HD

2019-02-27 Thread Daniel Kerr
Hi Jewels

As Susan has mentioned, is the error message your’e getting saying “you’re out 
of memory” or  “your startup disk is getting low on space”.
As both are different things.


The MacPro has 4 hard drive bays, so you do have the option to “increase” 
storage if it needs it. It’s also possible to a) use the SSD for the boot 
up/system, but then use a standard Hard Drive for storage or b) create a 
“Fusion Drive” (Core Storage drive) to combine both an SSD and a normal Hard 
Drive together, to give speed plus storage. (e.g. using an SSD plus say a 2-3TB 
drive and make it into one drive which shows as 2.25TB. Or even c) have two 
drives raided together in various ways.
So plenty of options there.

If however, it’s relating to low memory, then just adding more RAM/memory to 
the machine, can also help with more Apps running as well. These days you want 
to have at least 8GB RAM minimum I find, as the OS (Operating System) wants to 
use more also. So having at least 8GB or 16GB is preferable.

You should be able to look under About this Mac in the Apple menu to see how 
much RAM is there.
You can also see what is being used (and when and where) by going into 
Applications - Utilities and opening Activity Monitor. Click on Memory and have 
it to the side as you’re doing things. You’ll then see Apps are using a lot and 
if it’s going over what it has built in.

Without going into a lot of details, the  new system will “never” (in theory) 
run out of memory, as it borrows it from the HDD (or SSD), to keep the computer 
going,…but this does tend to slow things down. So rather then doing things that 
way, it’s always better to have more built in memory then using it that way and 
running out of memory.

Hope that all helps.
Kind regards
Daniel

Re: External USB hub

2019-01-17 Thread Daniel Kerr
Or, if you have an Airport Express, Extreme or Time Capsule most model printers 
can be plugged into the USB on it and become a “wireless” printer. So can 
shared that way. (assuming the printer doesn’t have wireless already).

Re: Help

2018-12-18 Thread Daniel Kerr
Hi Bill

Sorry, thought it was a computer.
In that case,..for the iPad.
Double tap the home button to see all open Apps. “Flick” up to close them off. 
(this can be slightly different for older versions of iOS).
Once it’s closed off go to Settings - Safari. Tap “Clear History”. This will 
then close all current tabs.

if you’re using iCloud Safari sharing, you can close it off another way from 
another device/computer.

The other way is to go to Settings - Safari and turn on “Private Browsing”. It 
will ask if you want to close all Open Tabs. You then choose Yes.
If that option doesn’t show, you can then - 
Go to Settings. Turn on Airplane mode. Go back into Safari, and it won’t be 
able to load the page. You can then close the open tabs (using the “two box 
button” icon. Go through and close all the tabs in Safari.
Once all closed, then Quit Safari (as above). Then turn Airplane mode off.

Hopefully something there should then work for you.
Kind regards
Daniel

Re: Help

2018-12-18 Thread Daniel Kerr
Hi Bill

That’s a scam. Just quit out of Safari. (or hold option key down and click on 
Safari icon in the dock to choose “Force Quit”.
Then restart the computer.
After it starts up again hold down the Shift key and open Safari. This then 
“resets” the last page opened, so it won’t try and load it again.
All should then be ok.

If you want to just check “just incase” you can download MalwareBytes 
Anti-Malware and run a scan as well. This will just check there is no Malware 
installed.
That can be downloaded from here -

Re: Still having *** password problems

2018-12-18 Thread Daniel Kerr
Hi Pat

Did you see my long post to WAMUG I sent (date 03/12/2018 12.31pm) where I 
referred to this about logging in etc.
The section I referred to it was here -

The full post on the WAMUG archives is here - 
https://www.mail-archive.com/wamug@wamug.org.au/msg81942.html

This has information exactly about logging in that perhaps you are referring 
to. 
If it’s still a bit all over the place, perhaps you may be better (as Peter H 
mentioned) getting someone to look at it all for you. So it’s then sorted out 
once and for all.

Kind regards
Daniel

Re: Too many passwords

2018-12-05 Thread Daniel Kerr
Hi Tim (and all) - and thanks Alex, glad that helped.

I use that as well. And you can actually get Keychain to create these for you 
as well.
There’s a few ways to access an internal Password Assistant that can help 
generate these.

For example, if you go to System Preferences - Users & Groups.
Click on “Change Password”. 
Just to the right of “New Password” (which you won’t change), you’ll see a 
little key icon. Click on that.
This will open the internal Password Assistant. 
Under “Type” you set this to Memorable, then can change the Length of the 
password as required. (e.g. 12 characters, 18 characters, etc).
Each time you click “Memorable” it will create a new password for you, which 
you can Copy and Paste into programs or places you want to use it.
This then can help you create ones to use. Then just close out of System 
Preferences when finished without changing anything.

I’m not sure how I did it, but I actually have the Password Assistant as a 
“stand alone” Application. I think when you could find it and use it manually. 
So it sits in my Applications folder and I use it a lot to generate memorable 
passwords for things and clients where needed.
Now a days I think the Password Assistant is actually buried deep away so you 
can’t find it “manually”. Shame, as I find it very handy to just open up the 
Application and use it.

But that’s another good way to generate some “useful” passwords as well. A 
handy little Application.

All this talk of passwords reminded me of a (bad) joke,….

An IT Person was helping a client and asked for their computer password.
They replied “ it’s SnowWhiteDocGrumpyHappySleepyDopeyBashfulSneezy”
With a puzzled look the IT person queried,…oh? that’s a,…..strange,…password??
To which the person replied,…well the password hint said I needed 1 large 
character and 7 small characters,…..


Fair warning,..I did say it was a BAD joke,…lol :)

Enjoy all!
I’m off to hide now,…. 

Kind regards
Daniel

Re: Too many passwords

2018-12-04 Thread Daniel Kerr
Hi Alex

Thanks for that, glad it was helpful.

In answer to your questions.
1. I haven’t really used LastPass, so I can’t really comment on it. I’ve just 
always used 1Password. I think I had some reservations on LastPass, but that 
was ages ago and I can’t recall what it was now. Perhaps it was something to do 
with who owned it? Or possibly because they once had a breach (again I think it 
was a long time ago). Whereas i’ve never heard of AgileBits ever having 
problems. They (1Password/AgileBits) always seem more on top of things with 
info, updates, on top of security stuff. But that could be my bias,…lol.
So seeing as I have never used LastPass I can’t really say. A quick search 
seems that they do rate a little “better” in some things - 
https://www.digitaltrends.com/computing/lastpass-vs-1password-comparison/
I think (but I could be wrong) that 1Password has been around a lot longer then 
LastPass - so that could be another reason I use it. :)

2. Yes, generally once using a Password Manager it’s best to go through and 
replace passwords for more random generated ones. Most programs will do this 
for you. And they generally offer an “audit” feature as well. So you can let it 
audit your passwords to see if you need to change any, or any are poor in 
“quality”. And given that the software manages it for you, you don’t actually 
have to remember them. As it does that for you and auto fills it in if you want 
to. (or can look it up if really need to know what it is).
I use a mixture of both generated from 1Password and Apple’s auto-generate 
feature as well. And I have iCloud Keychain set on. So my passwords sync to my 
laptop, iMac, iPad and iPhone. So doesn’t matter what I use, all the 
information is there.
With my iPhone and iPad, I have those set to 10 wrong attempts of the login 
passcode will erase the device. As then even though everything is “Secure” and 
locked away, it just means if someone gets them and tries to break into it, it 
will completely remotely wipe the device after 10 wrong attempts. And given 
ti’s backed up to iCloud and my computer daily I won’t actually lose anything. 
The person will get my items, but all my personal “stuff” will be deleted.
(Not that I actually have anything to hide, as it’s all encrypted, but it’s 
just a “nice feeling” to know that the info won’t go anywhere. Though I did 
have to tell my son many years ago he couldn’t play with my phone and code,…as 
“Daddy didn’t want him to wipe my stuff”. :) Now with FaceID and/or Fingerprint 
ID I don’t really use Passwords all that much. As most programs like my banking 
and 1Password will unlock via FaceID. (or FingerpringID on my iPad Gen6).
But yes, to answer your question (sorry, I get sidetracked sometimes,…lol) - 
yes, it’s a good idea to replace passwords. As I “upgrade” some sites here and 
there I go through and change them all. So they tend to be updated every 2-3 
years anyway. And some wholesaler I use I have to do it every 6 months anyway.

Hope that extra info helps. :)

Kind regards
Daniel

opic,..if you have an AppleID, then you would have an 
iCloudID - given they are both the same.
If you use the above link then you can at least check it and see if it logs you 
in or not. Then you know at least if you have those details for that 
AppleID/iCloud.

Apologies to others for the long post,..was trying to cover a lot in one 
email,….lol.

Hope all that info helps.

Re: Non functioning of the Ethernet port - iMac Mid 2014

2018-11-26 Thread Daniel Kerr
Hi Philippe

If no success with the SMC reset, then yes it could be a hardware problem with 
the Ethernet port.
Realistically as it’s on the mother board you wouldn’t want to repair it I’m 
afraid, as the board is very expensive. You better option would be a 
Thunderbolt to Ethernet adapter if you still needed Ethernet, as it would be 
way cheaper!
MacWorx Joondalup are still great for hardware checks/repairs. And they’d have 
the adapter in stock should you decide to use that option.

Hope all that helps.
Kind regards

Apple Event - 30th October - new items

2018-10-30 Thread Daniel Kerr
Incase anyone missed it,…here’s a quick run down of what was announced from 
today’s Apple event. (which actually started at a reasonable time, didn’t have 
to wait until 1am to start watching it!)…..

New MacBook Air
Now with Retina Display, still 13”
Has the new “butterfly keyboard”, larger multi-touch trackpad, 2x 
Thunderbolt3/USB-C ports and headphone socket. Now comes in Space Grey, Silver 
and Gold.
Also has the T2 Security Chip with Touch ID.
Pricing starts at $1849
(and you can even take it from a 512GB SSD to a huge 1.5TB SSD! Only a mere

Re: OS9 Mac

Hi Kevin

I think I may have an old white iMac at home that should do Mac OS9. I’ll have 
a look when I’m home late tonight  and let you know if you like.

Re: Adaptor for dongle

2018-10-04 Thread Daniel Kerr
Hi Pat

I’ve not come across anything that will convert USB-C into USB-B (“normal” 
USB). You can go the other way (USB3 into USB-C) and there are plenty of 
adapters for that. But nothing the other way. 

If the device is something that the cable can be swapped out of, then you could 
just use a normal USB cable for it.
(e.g. sometimes it’s possible to take a device that sells with USB-C cable. 
Then just using a normal USB cable it will still work the same). e.g. I have a 
Western Digital Hard Drive and I have two cables for it. One microB USB3.1 to 
USB-A, and one cable that is microB USB3.1 to USB-C. This means I can use the 
same hard drive with “normal USB” and the new USB-C on newer iMac’s and newer 
laptops.

As far as I’m aware, there isn’t anything to convert USB-C to Thunderbolt 2 
either. (again, you can go the other way Thunderbolt2 to Thunderbolt3(USB-C), 
as they have adapters for that part.
(and I’m not sure on USB-C to HDMI, but I have a feeling it’s the same - 
nothing to convert it).

So short answer as far as I’m aware there is no adapter that will allow you to 
plug USB-C into the MacPro. (I’d looked once before and even a quick look now 
doesn’t turn anything up.)

This article may help also -

Re: Safari 12 Ad Blockers?

2018-09-30 Thread Daniel Kerr
Hi Peter

I had that also, but just downloaded the Mac App Store version and it worked 
fine? (Unless I’m thinking of some different to yours).

This is the link to it on the store - 
https://itunes.apple.com/au/app/adblock-for-safari/id1402042596?mt=12

When I removed AdBlock that was installed and then re-downloaded the M.A.S 
version it worked the same as it had done before.
But there are quite a few that do the same thing,…so I could be mis-reading 
your email,…lol.

Just thought I’d throw that in the ring as well. 
(Oh, and they do a “Pro” version as well).

Kind regards

Re: Mojave ?

2018-09-27 Thread Daniel Kerr
Hi Stephen

My personal opinion “short answer” would be,..no, not straight away. lol. I 
tend to recommend waiting until the .1 update comes out. (they’re all ready 
working on it at the moment).
Generally a .0 upgrade still has bugs once it’s “out in the wild” and more 
people are using it. So I tend to wait until 10.14.1 is out. Then see how it 
goes.

Long answer would be. If you’re happy that everything you have current will 
work with Mojave (i.e. software and hardware) and you have good backups (more 
then one) and a bootable backup “just incase”,….then possibly it’s worth 
looking out.
I tend to find my workload increases when a .0 upgrade comes out and people 
install it. And then things change or don’t work. Whereas by .1 or .2 most (if 
not all) of the bugs tend to get fixed.
So I find that’s a bit more of a safer bet. (Again, all of this is my own 
personal opinion and experience).
I’ve got it installed on a small portable hard drive, so i can test the main 
Apps I use. I do this on my “home testing iMac”. Then I can make sure that 
everything works before I go and upgrade the computer fully. I don’t put it on 
my work laptop until I know things will work how I expect them too. Otherwise 
if something went wrong and I couldn’t use my work laptop,..then I’d be in 
trouble! lol.

(I do the same with iOS upgrades as well. I put iOS12 on my iPad first before I 
do my iPhone once I know everything will work ok). If my iPad stops working 
it’s not the end of the world. If my iPhone stopped working,…well, I’d get a 
nice break but I’d have a lot of upset customers,…lol.
And if both happened at the same time,..end of the world! :) hehe.

So, not a definitive answer probably sorry,…but just my thoughts on it anyway. 
Others may have different views.
It can also depend on the sort of things you’re running too. For some people it 
will install no problems If people use a lot of software or a lot of “third 
party add-ons” , then unless they’re all upgraded to work with Mojave then 
that’s when things don’t go too well.

Hope something there helps.
Kind regards
Daniel

Re: RAM Question.

2018-09-25 Thread Daniel Kerr
Hi Tony

You can “generally” get RAM for the iMac from most places. (good known brands 
can differ, but Samsung, Corsair etc).
It depends on exactly which 27” iMac it is as to which one you’re after, as 
there’s a lot around. (Some can be 1333MHz, 1600MHz, 1866MHz or 2400MHz). Also 
depends on how much you have in there and which slots are free.
I supply RAM to my clients also, so happy to price some up if you wanted. (just 
email me off list with some more info) and I’m happy to give you some ideas if 
you like.

Re: Apple Event - Apple Watch Series4 and new iPhones

2018-09-13 Thread Daniel Kerr
Hi Michael

As I don’t work for Apple, I can’t say.

Though I must say I don’t have an issue with mine. Mine is an Apple Watch 
Series 1 and I find it lasts well over a day for me. I’ve had mine on all day 
since 730am - used it for maps/navigation all day, replied to some texts on it, 
got it to search for some things, checked a few emails and replied to some 
emails and texts on it, and at 2.23am (i.e. now), it’s still got 41% battery 
life left. And it’s tracked health and movement and a bit of exercise (30mins) 
as well. And still not run out. (so that’s almost 19 hours roughly)
Perhaps an app or something is using a lot of power?

These links may help,…

Re: Email problem

2018-06-20 Thread Daniel Kerr
Hi Julie

It’s highly unlikely it came from your machine at all. More then likely it came 
from someone else’s infected computer, but spoofs your email address. This is 
how virus “work around it”.
When a computer gets infected, what some viruses will do is just go through the 
person’s address book and picks a “to” address, and a “from” address. Then 
repeats. So it “spoofs” who it actually comes from.
This way it’s harder to track down sometimes who the infected computer was. As 
your contractor thinks it came from you, and your computer doesn’t show it 
going out at all. Yet some “mutual” contact you both know more then likely is 
where the data was “collected” from.
This has some more info about it here - 
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Email_spoofing

Basically, as their “definition” says,…
/quote
Alice is sent an infected email which she opens, running the worm code.
The worm code searches Alice's email address book and finds the addresses of 
Bob and Charlie.
From Alice's computer, the worm sends an infected email to Bob, but forged to 
appear to have been sent by Charlie.
In this case, even if Bob's system detects the incoming mail as containing 
malware, he sees the source as being Charlie, even though it really came from 
Alice's computer; meanwhile Alice may remain unaware that her computer has been 
infected.
/end quote

So more then likely all is fine on your computer, and it’s someone else that 
“pretended” to send out as you.
(email addresses are very easy to “spoof”. I could quite easily post an email 
to wamug which “looks” like it’s come from you, but I’ve actually sent it from 
my computer. Obviously I won’t and most people wouldn’t as it’s against our 
nature to be malicious, but I’m just using that as an example to show what I 
mean).
If however, you want to just check just incase you can run some of the free 
Virus checking software, and even Malware check just incase. Just be aware 
these can take many hours to run sometimes as it looks over all the files etc. 
And from my experience with client computers, it’s very very rare to find 
anything. (I’ve yet to have a client have a “real” virus on their computer in 
the 17 years of doing MacWizardry).
Some of the free Virus checks that people recommend are - 
Sophos -  https://home.sophos.com/free-mac-antivirus
ClamXAV - https://www.clamxav.com
Avast! - https://www.avast.com/en-au/free-mac-security

MalwareBytes can be downloaded here - 
https://www.malwarebytes.com/mac/

Just running the trial of one of them is fine, as if you do run it to scan, 
then you can just remove it once finished. 
But as mentioned, it’s more then likely it will have originated from you in the 
first place, so your computer should be fine.
We’re still pretty lucky in the Mac world for viruses (virii?) as we still 
really don’t get them. (and others may say they’re not running anything all the 
time either as has been the “normal” for many years. It’s not worth the 
“overhead” of computer resources or money.*
*In some places, it’s worth having, just for peace of mind, or a “requirement” 
to have it in certain businesses/organisations, but in generally the Mac is 
still pretty safe. 

Others may disagree with this, but from experience I’ve yet to see anything to 
prove otherwise from my workings around the place.

Hope all that info helps.

Kind regards
Daniel

Re: GREAT GAME EAGLES!

Hi Peter

By chance was it a MacBook Pro 15”? Or a 13”?
If it was a 2011 15” then it was more then likely the Graphics Card failed. 
They are starting to be “common” failures on that model now unfortunately.

Re: When Time Capsule no longer functions

2018-05-17 Thread Daniel Kerr
Hi Peter

Quick reply, as just walking into another job.
But basically - either a wireless type hard drive. If the Time Capsule works 
but internal drive “fails” then you can use a USB drive plugged into it and 
“ignore” internal drive and use external drive. (done this for a few clients). 
A NAS can be used as a Time Machine backup - some specially say they’ll work 
with it - e.g. Synology off top of head.
Just a few suggestions there.

I would imagine Time Capsule will keep going for a while. As it’s just a “box” 
that keeps working. Only thing may be Airport Utility that stops being able to 
work. But I don’t see that happening for many years to come. Apple will keep 
parts for Time Capsule up to 5 years (as that’s legally how long they have to 
support hardware - same as other manufacturers for parts of computer hardware).

Kind regards
Daniel

Hi Alan

Yes, makes me appreciate my iPhone even more when I see the way some of the 
things “work” with the other phones lol. And I’d much rather have a secure App 
store any day…lol.

Yes,…no more Airport. If want anything like that (or even a spare) ,..best get 
them now. I have a new sealed 2TB Time Machine stored away,…just for that 
reason. :) I notice wholesalers are getting low on a lot of them as well. Once 
it’s gone, that’s it. Another good product goes the way of the dodo 
unfortunately. :( Apple Thunderbolt monitor, Time Capsule, and so on ,…..

Did you also try or see if it has something similar to the iPhone where you 
have to “Activate” the bluetooth to connect it “pair” it, so it’s recognised as 
a “Secure device”. I think from memory there was a way to do this so you had to 
“approve” it once, for it to then show up. (A bit like the iPhone does the 
first time it’s plugged in and you have to “approve”/“trust” the device both 
ways.

Google and their "data collection"

2018-05-14 Thread Daniel Kerr
Had to have a laugh today when “hearing" on the radio about Android users and 
how Google “tracks all their data for selling to third parties for 
advertising”,…shock horror! No?!?! Really?!?!? Google….primarily an advertising 
company would gather data Say it isn’t so!…..
It was just the way it was “presented” on the radio news, was very funny worded 
I thought.
(And apparently being “charged” for the privilege of their data being collected 
as well as it uses the data plan,…lol).

Australia watchdog to probe Android data harvesting - 
https://www.mobileworldlive.com/asia/asia-news/australia-watchdog-to-probe-android-data-harvesting/

At least we know it gives Apple a break from being bashed in the news for a 
while,…lol.  :)

Enjoy!

Kind regards
Daniel

Re: Search engine!

2018-05-14 Thread Daniel Kerr
Hi Pat

I would try the MalwareByte’s scan as others have mentioned. Worth a look just 
to rule it out.
When you click on “Search”  in your screen shot, what do you have showing 
there? You should have a drop down list there.
What actually happens when you click on it, where it most likely shows Bing, 
and you try and choose “Google”. (as attached).


With the other drop down menu, you need to have a blank page, or new tab 
showing, so nothing is written there, then click just beside the magnifying 
glass (or should be able to ( like attached below).


It should then show either of the drop down list to choose “Google”.

You could also check Extensions in Safari, incase you have something installed 
there as well. (Safari - Preferences - Extensions).

But I’d try the AntiMalware scan first - https://www.malwarebytes.com/mac/

Kind regards
Daniel

Re: Search engine!

2018-05-12 Thread Daniel Kerr
Another way to also change it. When you have a “blank” page open (and you can 
see the line “Search or enter website name”, if you click on the search 
magnifying glass thing to the left of this, you’ll get a drop down menu. You 
can change here.
Otherwise it’s Safari menu - Preferences - Search.
“Search engine”. Then choose from the drop down menu you want.

Some times websites will change the search for you (or ask you if you want to 
go to this page, without you realising it’s meaning it’s going to change it.
And some software can also ask if you want to change it as well, as part of the 
install of the software. Malware can also do it as well sometimes - though 
normally won’t change it to Bing, it will change it some other weird search 
engine or “tracking” website.

Re: Strange redirection has blocked Gumtree access ?

2018-05-08 Thread Daniel Kerr
Hi Stephen

The first thing I would do before doing anything else, is to make sure there is 
a backup! The second thing I would do,…is make sure there is a backup!!
Have a search for “photo” and see if anything turns up (e.g. iPhoto, Photos, 
Photos Library, iPhotos Library. (also look in the Trash).
Just incase any of them have been moved to different locations.
This may then help narrow it down for the reminder of the things.

I’d be a bit “cautious’ of re-installing an OS install there without knowing 
which one it is (e.g. Mavericks was 10.9, Yosemite 10.10, El Capitan 10.11, 
Sierra 10.12 and of course High Sierra 10.13).
(And for those playing along 10.0 was Cheetah, 10.1 was Puma , 10.2 Was Jaguar, 
10.3 was Panther, 10.4 was Tiger, 10.5 was Leopard, 10.6 was Snow Leopard, 10.7 
was Lion, and 10.8 was Mountain Lion - and I didn’t even have to go look that 
up,….lol).

If you are running 10.9.5, you could try the last patch Combo installer again. 
This may get the iPhoto back (though sometimes if it’s not there it won’t 
“update” it).
You can get the full Combo update here - https://support.apple.com/kb/dl1760

But without seeing the machine, or a bit more info I’d be a bit cautious of 
which steps to take, as obviously wouldn’t want to do anything to make it 
“worse”.

Hope something there helps.

Kind regards
Daniel

Re: computer shutting down

2018-05-05 Thread Daniel Kerr
Hi Rosemary

Haven’t followed all of this,…but have you tried an SMC reset, PRAM reset and 
SafeBoot?
Other thing to try would be create a new “test” account and log into that and 
see if it does the same thing. (though I’m guessing it will, as it sounds like 
more something at system level rather then user level, but worth a try to rule 
it out.)

Other thing to try would be to run EtreCheck and see if it reports anything 
there too.

Re: Data use.

2018-04-18 Thread Daniel Kerr
Ayes,…that’s another one too.
iCloud Photo Library (and or My Photo Stream). and iCloud Drive - Desktop and 
Documents.

On computer it’s System Preferences - iCloud. Look under options for Photos and 
options for iCloud Drive. Check the above things aren’t ticked (especially 
iCloud Photo Library and Desktop and Documents in the Cloud).
And on iPhone it’s Settings - iCloud. Check in Photos and check in iCloud Drive 
for items as well.

The other one can also be Dropbox or similar programs that “sync” to the 
internet. Basically, anything that a) tries to update itself or b) syncs with 
an online service.

Kind regards
Daniel

Re: Data use.

2018-04-18 Thread Daniel Kerr
Hi Tony

Do you have any other devices/computers using the internet?
Try turning all the computers and devices off, then see if in that same time 
period (e.g. 30mins) if any usage is still being used. This will help narrow it 
down a little bit. If there is no usage when nothing is on, then one would 
assume it has to be being used by your devices.
Then just have one computer or device on, and see if the usage still increases. 
This helps narrow down where it may be used from.

One thing to check is System Preferences - App Store. Having it “Automatically 
check for updates” is OK. But I tend to untick “Download newly available 
updates in the background” or anything that says it’s going to auto download 
and auto install. I do all those manually.

The iPhone will also do the same thing.
Settings - iTunes and App Store. Automatic Updates etc. (You can also check 
“Use Mobile Data” isn’t ticked at the same time as well - won’t affect this 
issue, but just incase).
Some Apps on devices can also use data. You can see these in Settings - General 
- Backup App Refresh. You can turn the whole thing off, ,or turn it off per App.

They’re a few places to start, and turn off to help narrow it down.

On the Mac, you can also see if you’re using Network usage from Applications - 
Utilities. Open Activity Monitor. Click on Network, and you’ll see how much 
data is being sent and received. If it’s hugely spiking, then you can see it’s 
all coming from the computer.
So it’s a matter of just going through everything and truely to narrow it down 
/ rule out what it may be, or which device is using it.

Hope that start helps.

Kind regards
Daniel

Re: Changing ISP and porting email address

2018-04-15 Thread Daniel Kerr
Hi Diana

You can’t really “port” an email address to another ISP. When you change ISP’s 
you will get a new one.
With iinet, you can pay them $25 per year per email address to “keep” those 
email addresses. So if you have 2 email addresses you want to keep, then you’d 
be paying them $50 per year to keep the iinet address.
But Telstra can’t take those email addresses to them. They can only stay with 
iinet.
So you’d either need to keep the addresses for a year or so, and tell people 
your “new” email addresses, or carry on paying every year to iinet for them. 
This is why some people a) stick with their ISP to keep their email address or 
b) go for a “non-ISP” address (e.g. iCloud.com or gmail.com, hotmail etc). That 
way they then have the email address “forever”.

I think a lot of people have on and off problems with iinet (myself included), 
but when my NBN comes, I’m staying with them for now. I’ll wait to the mess 
that is NBN is hopefully sorted out and then see what it’s like. I’m working on 
the “better the devil you know” theory,….lol. I keep Telstra for my mobile, but 
I don’t want my internet with them. But I don’t think there’s a “fantastic” ISP 
out there really. They all seem to have problems here and there (which I can 
understand), but I don’t think any one ISP is that much better then anyone. I 
think all the “great” ISP’s got gobbled up by larger companies. And service 
went out the window……… (service? We can’t afford to factor that into our 
plans,..don’t be silly! lol).
(Yes, sometimes you get the right person and it’s OK,…..other times it’s a 
great big mess). More to do with moving support centres all overseas I think. 
Wouldn’t it be nice if we could do the same. Oh, a problem with the bill? Sorry 
you’ll need to talk to our support centre,…they’re overseas. They only work 
10mins a day once a week, every other day. Leave a message and they’ll get back 
to you,….sometime. Maybe. Perhaps. Hard to say).  :) hehe.

So long story short…..
If you want to keep the emails, you’d need to ask iinet to swap you to an 
“email only account” once you’ve changed to the new provider - then pay per 
each email per year.

Kind regards
Daniel

Re: APFS

2018-03-19 Thread Daniel Kerr
Hi Severin

I have a feeling it won’t be as APFS for Fusion based drives won’t released in 
the end, as it “wasn’t ready”. The only drive that APFS runs on is a “straight” 
SSD. I could be wrong, but I had a feeling it hasn’t been adjusted/corrected as 
yet. 
They were going to release it as an update,…but I don’t think it’s there yet. I 
think there were still some issues with it.

Hope that helps.

Kind regards
Daniel

Re: [DKIM] Strange case of "oversize video file" ?

2017-12-01 Thread Daniel Kerr
That’s a very interesting drive Stephen,…lol

It’s Capacity is 16GB yet available space is 21GB,…lol.
Is that little the Doctor Who Tardis where the space inside is much larger then 
the actual space? hehe.
(I’d like some of those then, if I can get a 16GB drive but put 21GB worth of 
data on it,…hehe).

Reminds me years ago when I came across a faulty 500GB drive (which was the 
“top of the range” back then),…and a file on the drive told me it was 2TB’s in 
size,…well before we’d even heard of 2TB drives! lol (they didn’t exist then). 
Needles to say,…the drive was faulty,…hehe.

Certainly a very strange and weird issue there,….makes me think I’ll have to 
try that tonight when I get home and see if I can get a 2.5GB file onto my 
Thumb Drives and see what it reports,…can’t recall as haven’t done that for a 
while,…..hehe.

Kind regards
Daniel

Re: [DKIM] seagate hardrive

2017-12-01 Thread Daniel Kerr
Agreed. I avoid Seagate (and Lacie who are also part of Seagate, and all Lacie 
drives use Seagate).
My drive of choice is Western Digital (WD). Have used them for many years with 
many clients and found them to be very great and reliable. (and I can swap them 
over on the spot if something goes wrong as I know WD stand behind their 
products - on the rare chance something does go wrong, which to be honest in 
all the time I’ve been selling them has been few and far between).

Kind regards

Re: Strange case of "oversize video file" ?

2017-11-30 Thread Daniel Kerr
Are yes,…sorry, my bad. Forgot you’d said it was over 2GB. (Sorry I got 
sidetracked on talking about the Trash,…lol) - I may have misread the email in 
passing. Ooops..sorry. Too long a day (week),…lol.
If ti’s going to a Windoze user and they have a fairly recent Windows system 
then you should be ok with exFAT in that case.

The other way to do it if you have something like Dropbox or OneDrive or 
similar, would be to put it in there (as long as you have more then 4GB storage 
space) and then email them a link for them to download it from.  I use that 
when moving files too big to email. :)
Or similar ways like that too. But yes exFAT should be fine.

Kind regards
Daniel

Re: Strange case of "oversize video file" ?

2017-11-30 Thread Daniel Kerr
Hi Stephen and all,….

Just a few other things that can affect this as well.
I’ll try explain it as best as possible.

With a Thumb Drive, if you have any items on it, and these get put into the 
“Trash”, they will stay there. Unless the Trash is “emptied” then although the 
Thumb Drive “appears empty” the items will still take up space as they’re 
sitting in the drive.
A USB stick has it’s own “Trash”. And your User account (it when you have the 
computer on), also has it’s “own” Trash.
Though they can appear to be “one and the same” they are actually different.

To try and explain this another way.
Let say you have nothing plugged in to your computer. You start the computer up 
and are just using it “as normal” (i.e. no external hard drives or USB drives 
plugged in). If you go and empty the Trash, you’ll get the “changed icon” of 
the Trash. (i.e. it will go from being a Full Trash icon to an Empty Trash 
icon). If you double click it to view the Trash, it will be empty.
Now, if you plug in a USB drive or external drive. If it has anything still 
sitting in the Trash, the Trash can icon will “magically” appear to be full 
again. And if you view the contents, you’ll see things in there. These items 
would belong to the Trash.
(you can also do this experiment by emptying the computer Trash. Then if you 
have a folder on the drive, (or create an empty folder) then drag it to the 
Trash. The trash icon will appear to be “full”. But once you eject the Hard 
Drive/USB drive, the Trash can will be empty again. Once you plug the drive 
back in, the Trash can will fill up again. (as it’s showing items on the 
external drive).

I always try and keep my Trash can empty. That way when I plug things in, I 
know if they have anything to “check” or are completely free of space, as the 
Trash will also be empty. It’s a bit easy to trash where things are “Stored” as 
to what trash is there as well. (and then knowing that each drive is completely 
free when I plug it in).

I’ve seen this happen before, where a USB stick will “appear” to be empty, but 
because the Trash can is “full” from things on the computer, as well as things 
on the external drive, you can’t tell the difference. So don’t realise the USB 
drive isn’t actually “empty”.

Re the formatting of it. For the “best fit” for most computers MS-DOS(FAT32) is 
the better one to use. ExFat is meant to be a new (better) format, but on some 
machines they still may not recognise it. So to get the “best for everything” 
I’d say go with the MSDOS(FAT32).

Hope that information helps people. (It’s a bit confusing, so hopefully it 
makes sense,…hehe).

Kind regards
Daniel

Re: ApplePay?

2017-10-30 Thread Daniel Kerr
Thanks Tim

Yes, I’d read they were looking into that. 
Which kinda begs the question …have they been holding out on ApplePay in the 
fear it would kill their own App. They get people into their own Wallet App 
first, then once they know people are using it, then let ApplePay come on 
board. So after their own App has gained momentum it’s then “ok” to allow Apple 
Pay.
But yes, more to add to the conspiracy ….er intrigue. :)

Re: ApplePay?

2017-10-30 Thread Daniel Kerr
Yes I’m also waiting for Westpac to “hurry up” with ApplePay on their side. 
I’ve been with Westpac since first moving to Australia (which from memory was 
around 1998).
I actually sent them an email the other day about this, as their feedback for 
it as been ongoing for the last 3-4 years saying “once it’s available, we’ll 
look into having it”, and they seem to have a “blanket response” for it. Which 
is quite poor.
This was my email conversation with them,….

My “Feedback” to them using their online form
/quote
When will Westpac add Apple Pay here in Australia. On twitter and other places 
they say ¦it¦s coming¦, ¦we¦re looking into it ¦ etc. But this has been going 
for the last 3 years at least. Plenty of other Aus banks have taken it on and 
ANZ has had it for ages. (And even smaller banks have it!). Yet we¦re still 
waiting. And the US and other places have it also. Why is there such a delay 
when plenty of customers are requesting it , and plenty more leaving Westpac to 
go elsewhere to get. As a loyal customer for over 17years even I¦ve been 
considering it with such a delay. Please consider implementing it this year. 
/end quote

Their response was,..
/quote
Dear Daniel,

Thank you for your enquiry in relation to Apple Pay.  
At this stage Apple Pay is not eligible for Westpac Mobile Payments.
Currently Samsung mobiles are the only phones that have the appropriate phone 
hardware required to support Westpac's Mobile Payments Solution.
While many other Android handsets have NFC functionality which allows the phone 
to talk to the contactless card reader, they don't have the required ESE 
security hardware (Embedded Secure Element) that we use to keep your payment 
details safe.
Once handset manufacturers add ESE to handsets for NFC payments, Westpac will 
then look to add its Pay functionality to these devices in Australia.
We are always looking at ways to improve, and always keen to hear feedback and 
suggestions from our customers.
If this changes in the future you will be notified through advertising on our 
website, through the Westpac app as well as notifications through email.
Thank you again for your feedback.
Yours sincerely
/end quote

To which my response was,…
/quote
Hi 

I find this quite surprising as Apple have a secure enclave (which even they 
don’t have access to the data once it’s there), as they process via token’s 
rather then details. So the secure enclave used for security is more then 
sufficient for all other “details”.
Yet a lot of banks and places in the US and other countries can process Apple 
Pay through it. And ANZ amongst many many many smaller banks can process Apple 
Pay through it, and you’re using what appears to be a “poor excuse” that it 
isn’t secure enough?
And online for about the last 4 years the Westpac “standard line of excuse” 
that “we’re looking into” has just been ongoing.
I would have thought in this day and age of “customer service” that Westpac 
would surely see that a lot of your customer base want it, and have been 
requesting it for over 4 years - other banks can do. Yet Westpac can’t

The secure enclave for Apple Pay is completely different to Westpac’s own 
Mobile Payments Solution (internet banking, payment app), so it would go above 
the requirements security. Or is it more that because Westpac with the other 2 
major banks lost their ACCC case against Apple in that Apple wouldn’t open the 
secure enclave for them to use that we’re not seeing Apple Pay implemented?
I am a little disappointed in this “standard line of response” and I know from 
other Westpac customers they are also waiting as well. (can only wait so long 
before other banks start looking attractive). And given I’ve banked with 
Westpac for over 17 years this is quite disappointing.

Kind regards
Daniel
/end quote

Strangely enough, I never got a response back to that one,….lol. And that was 
over 2 weeks ago now. ( I don’t think I was “that” rude,..I was just getting a 
point across,…..lol.

So that’s all I’ve said to people, is to keep filling in the online feedback 
form on their banks. I’d think if enough customers keep complaining about it, 
something might happen.
Just very poor responses from them I felt. I really like my Westpac rewards CC 
and don’t really want to move banks or get another card just for Apple Pay,…but 
it’s quite annoying just to get the standard “card response” to a query……

Still, I suppose it could be worse, ….like the NBN mess….lol. :)
(Or maybe I’m just getting grumpier in my “old age”,….hehe).

Sorry for the long post /rant,…just my 2cents worth,…hehe

Kind regards
Daniel

Re: DVD player

2017-10-30 Thread Daniel Kerr
Hi Severin

You can turn off DVD Auto launch as follows - 
Open DVD Player. Go to the DVD Player menu then Preferences.
Under the Player tab, where it says “When a disc is inserted” un-tick “start 
playing disc”.
It used to be a setting you could change in System Preferences, but it’s 
generally removed on my systems with no DVD player.

But that should stop it for you.

Try that and see how you go.

Yes it means they wanted to unsubscribe but did it incorrectly. So I have to do

Passing of John Daniels

2017-10-19 Thread Daniel Kerr
Hi All

I’ve been asked to advise the list of the sad news of the passing of one of the 
list members - John Daniels. He passed away 12th October after a long struggle 
with pneumonia.
I was sad to hear of this news, as had worked with John quite a few times and 
he was always a great member and loved his Apple gear! Always a nice guy to 
deal with and have a laugh.
I sent my condolences to his wife (Susan Armstrong) for his family and friends.

Kind regards
Daniel

Re: Join "Fon WiFi"

2017-10-14 Thread Daniel Kerr
Telstra Air and FON networks (in my opinion) I feel are one of the “strangest” 
things around,..and in fact I’m unsure how Telstra actually get away with it.
People that have recent Telstra modems generally are also one where these two 
“free” networks are sent out from.

For example. You have a Telstra modem, and it broadcasts the network you use 
(e.g. Telstra1AB234 and Telstra 1AB234-5G). These are the two you would expect 
to see. However, the modem also broadcasts Telstra Air and FON networks from 
that same modem as well. So effectively it’s broadcasting 4 networks. Two that 
are the ones you use with your own password and two which are ones that a 
Telstra customer can join with their own Telstra details to log in to it.
So, effectively if someone did join it. they are logged on to your modem. 
However it’s “seperate” from your network, so in theory they can’t access any 
of your things. And from what I understand it doesn’t affect your quota. But as 
I see it, it would be using your bandwidth. (I could be wrong on this part, as 
I haven’t fully looked into that part).

And the other thing which is also a bit annoying, is that you can’t actually 
turn this off without calling Telstra (though recently you can log in to your 
Telstra account and are meant to be able to turn it off there now as well! You 
can log in to the modem and see the networks are broadcasting (by logging into 
the modem interface using something like 10.1.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 
or something similar to that). But even being logged in , you can’t de-activate 
it from there! 

As I see it, this is how Telstra are making their “Telstra Air network” cover 
all of Australia. In using modem spread around that anyone can join. But my 
issue with it is, that a lot of people don’t realise it’s from their own modem. 
And, how did they advise they were happy with their modem being part of the 
“large Telstra pool of internet” to make this. More then likely it’s in the 
“Terms and Conditions” that everyone reads and agrees to. :)) 
I had one client that had 5 people on his network downloading movies and TV 
shows and lots of streaming. We could actually see the download speed decrease 
when it was on. When we turned off Wireless for the two “Free” Telstra 
networks, we then saw the speed increase. Perhaps this was a coincidence, but 
to me common sense would have to say that more people on a freeway, the slower 
the traffic is going to be. So the same would apply to a modem and internet 
speed as well. And when I explain that their Telstra modem is more then likely 
the one broadcasting these networks (and show them in the interface page) 
they’re quite surprised and asked how they turned it on! (and most importantly 
how do they turn that off, as they don’t want other people using their modem). 

Again, I could be wrong here, but it just seems like a bit of a sneaky way to 
supply internet to other people. Surely if it was something that was going to 
be OK, it would be spelt out very clearly so people could opt in to it when 
they signed up to Telstra. Rather then it just being on when they get the 
modems. And like others have seen here, it’s annoying sometimes as some devices 
jump to that open network straight away rather then to their own network, so 
then it has to be changed back (or ignored, or removed from settings etc). So 
it can be a bit of a pain too.

Some more info on it -
https://crowdsupport.telstra.com.au/t5/Broadband-nbn/Telstra-Air-Frequently-Asked-Questions/ta-p/473504
https://www.telstra.com.au/telstra-air/at-home
I particularly like this last link and where it says,…
/quote
Can I opt out?
…...By deactivating Telstra Air, you won’t be able to access our network of 
hotspots in Australia or overseas with your home broadband service.
/end quote

In other words,…if you won’t play with us, we’re taking our ball and going 
home. ;) Turn off our network at your house,..you can’t use our free Telstra 
Air network elsewhere. That s sounds like a tantrum,….lol.

Now as mentioned, this is just my personal opinion and take on this,…so I could 
be a little wrong, or perhaps I’m missing something to understand it all and 
how it works. But I’m judging it on what I’ve seen out and about when working. 
I do realise the Telstra phone boxes do the same sort of thing as well, so some 
is coming from there, but I think a lot of it is coming from people’s home 
modems (generally).

Sorry for the long post, (and any mistakes as I don’t re-read what I write 
somedays,….lol). Just thought I’d offer my 15cents on it (it used to be 2cents 
but the price of everything went up,…don’t get me started on that,….lol).
I’ll leave it there for food for thought, and go back to getting ready for my 
Sunday family activities,…hehe. 

Enjoy!
Kind regards
Daniel

Re: No startup chime !!!!!

2017-09-26 Thread Daniel Kerr
Yes, I’d like the option at least to turn on or off the startup chime. I miss 
it on both my new iMac and laptop! At least let me have the option to choose if 
I want it or not!
It’s something that’s always been there! (they even wrote it into the WALL•E 
movie when he started up from charging,…it was an Apple startup chime!!)

They said “no, we won’t change Apple from how Steve had it”,..but surely that’s 
something that’s always been there since day dot (well close to it) which he 
always had. And yet they go and remove/change it! I wish it could be added 
back. Oh well.
I’ll go sit back in my corner now,….

I actually like this change. I never used to update the Apps within iTunes 
myself, and only updated them on the iPad and iPhone, so it meant when I 
checked Apps on the computer(s) it told me I had a million things to update as 
well (as I didn’t want it set to auto-update). So now it frees up space on the 
computer for something I never used to work with anyway,..hehe.
But yes, I can understand it’s not every one :)

I know I won’t miss it,…lol. But that’s just me.

Enjoy!

Kind regards
Daniel

Re: Apple I.D.

2017-09-05 Thread Daniel Kerr
Glad you got it working Tony,…
And arrr yes, the good old reading things,…that sometimes does help it a 
little,…hehe. 

Older systems or versions sometimes need the code at the end. Or you can set up 
“App Specific codes” from within your AppleID as well. Sometimes older or other 
Applications won’t use it either, so by creating an “App Specific Password” it 
can allow you to bypass this in a way. (These can be done within 
applied.apple.com ).

Glad you got it working and downloading….er downloaded and working I suppose 
that should really be. Or is it working, downloaded and then working. Well 
which ever way,…great!!
A "successful outcome" is always a successful outcome :)

Enjoy!

Most “phone line” ADSL ones I’ve generally always seen go through as “being in 
Wembley”. Direct wireless connections (such as Vivid Wireless), it says the 
client is in NSW,..so a slight difference…..lol.
But yes, from memory I don’t think I’ve ever (or vary rarely) seen it anywhere 
else,….hehe.
There are a lot of people authenticating in Wembley! Must be a very busy 
suburb,…..lol.

Hi Tony

You shouldn’t need the code for the Mac App Store on the computer.
To re-downoad it - 
Open Mac App Store.
Along the top of the window where you see Featured, Top Charts etc,…click on 
“Purchased”.
It should then either a) log you in to your purchases and show you everything 
or b) have a spot click here to sign in to see your purchases. (And you click 
on the underlined text).
It will then have your email address showing, and just a box to type in your 
AppleID password. Type it in and click to log in.
You should then get a list of all the Applications available to download you 
had bought before. And you can click Install.

The other way to do it, is just from “Featured” type in Affinity. Then click on 
it and choose to Download. It should say “you’ve purchased it before” and let 
you then download it again.

Either of those should hopefully get it working for you.

Kind regards
Daniel

Re: Speccing a MacBookPro 15"

2017-07-13 Thread Daniel Kerr
Hi Brian

After doing the same thing myself (and ordering in some laptops on behalf 
clients as well), I think it comes down to $$$ versus usage.
Definitely it will be cheaper overall to get an external drive to plug in. Or 
convenience to have everything inside the machine. (and how much stuff you 
have).
I went with the 1TB SSD for my MacBook Pro, as require enough room for temp 
things to be put there. But generally I don’t store a lot on it, so an external 
USB drive is fine for “other data”. I don’t need speed of transfer or anything 
like that, so don’t need an SSD internal. So just a run of the mill 2TB USB 
2.5” drive is more then enough for excess data.
Then I can use either then miniUSB connection to USB3 or just got a straight 
cable that is miniUSB to USB-C connection. Then the hard drive runs on both 
types with the simple swap of a cable.

For adapters I ordered in a Hypderdrive “adapter” that does a lot of things. 
(And infact they work quite well I ended up ordering a heap in for MacWorx 
Joondalup as well after I showed them).
It simply plugs into the USB-C port and does USB-C charge through (one USB-C 
port on the cable), 2x USB3 ports and 1xHDMI 4K on the end. And it’s all fairly 
compact as well. (and come in Silver or Space Grey to match the laptop).
For most use I find this works well. I then use a Thunderbolt2 To Thunderbolt3 
(USB-C) adapter as well. Though that’s more for transfers from old computers to 
new ones.
(The other day I had Firewire800 cable into a Thunderbolt2 to Firewire adapter 
then into a Thunderbolt2 To Thunderbolt3 adapter. A big long connection of 
cables and adapters,…but it migrates directly from the old computer to the new 
one) :)
Some of the Dock’s aren’t too bad, but again, depends on all the things you 
need to plug into it versus the price of them.

That would be my thinking anyway. :)

Hope something there helps.
Kind regards
Daniel

No worries. I thought it may have shown up when you turn the actual phone on,

Re: Blocked iPhone

2017-06-15 Thread Daniel Kerr
Hi Pat

Is it when you go to turn the phone on it is asking for a Passcode to get into 
the phone? As generally Telstra won’t help with that, and it does require a 
reset unfortunately.
If it’s a PUK lock code, then yes Telstra can help with that.
If it’s the one from turning the phone on itself, then that code will be coming 
from the iPhone, in that it’s the one which would have been chosen when the 
iPhone was first set up.
Hope you’ll find either code then get it sorted.


As an aside, my “Pat” one that Ronni replied too was a silly Pat over east who 
sent my time sensitive parcel to Huntingdale VIC to be “collected” instead of 
Huntingdale WA. Bad enough being off sick, but having to deal with a silly Pat 
lady as well saying “wasn’t my fault” when she addressed the parcel didn’t help 
(to which I replied to her, well, it wasn’t my fault as I didn’t send the 
parcel and the order form had the correct address on it,…lol). So I was 
complaining to Ronni about it when we were emailing back and forwards about 
“our grrr day” :)
Just for those following and wondering,…lol.
Too many emails some days,………

Hope your get your iPhone sorted.
Kind regards
Daniel

Re: New iMacs ?

2017-06-09 Thread Daniel Kerr
Yes, actually, I looked earlier after my post, and they’re not there anymore.
Perhaps I was just lucky enough to order some via a wholesaler to keep some. :) 
I think I’ll ensure to save one,…hehe :)
Though it’s not listed as EOL (End of Life)…so who would know at the moment.
Sorry about that. If you do need one (and are looking at a new iMac), then let 
me know as I can source them as well. :)

Hi Stephen

You can still buy them separately. I just ordered some more to keep for clients.
(and I swap them around if they require them separately). They actually came 
down in price to $69 (from $75).
It’s just not as a “build to order” option on the site. 
But there are “ways around it” :))

Re: A Mail dilemma

2017-05-27 Thread Daniel Kerr
Hi Severin

This can sometimes happen if there is a mix of POP and IMAP accounts being used 
across different devices.
So if some are set up to use POP3 and others IMAP, then that is why the dots 
will disappear as others have been read.

Do you know which devices are using which? (you can check in Apple Mail under 
Preferences - Accounts. and on the iOS devices it’s in Settings - Mail - 
Accounts - tap on the account.) It will then show as POP3 or IMAP.
This will help narrow it down, which may be “marking it off” and which aren’t.

Hope that helps.

And no, I certainly wouldn’t comment on over Mac-intising,…beside’s I don’t 
think I’m in any boat to comment,…as I myself have an iMac, MacBook Pro Retina 
15”, MacBook 15” Touch Bar, iPad Air2, iPhone 7 and Apple Watch,…and that’s 
even before I start on everything else in the house,….lol. :))
Besides,…can you EVER have too much Apple stuff??? :)

Kind regards
Daniel

Re: Security

2017-05-18 Thread Daniel Kerr
Hi Bill

Just in with client, which is why quick replies (as just wanting for some 
software to install and quickly checking email between installs).
After you double click the DMG and then it opens a Finder window. Before you 
click anything else, that is where you need to hold down the Option key.
eg. You double click the DMG file. It opens to a “white disk looking icon” on 
the desktop. Then before you click whatever icon or installer is there, you 
hold down the Control key before you click on it. You’ll then get a pop up 
window that you choose “Open” from. the list.
It will ask if you want to approve the Application, and you then choose “open”. 
It should then open as normal.

If you want to keep it all the time, and it’s not an installer, but an icon of 
the Application itself, you drag it into your Applications folder.
Then go to Applications folder and before doubling clicking it, you then use 
the Control key method. Then the same steps to open it.

It should then open after that.

Kind regards
Daniel

Re: Security

2017-05-18 Thread Daniel Kerr
Hi Bill

If it’s a standard DMG file, then you should just be able to double click it 
and it will open. Then you can do the “right click” part to open the 
Application.
e.g., something like Handbrake does the same thing (as it’s not set to open, 
but you can still run it) - https://handbrake.fr

Im not familiar with the m-dvdcopy program exactly, but similar ones can 
sometimes do the same as they’re not set for gatekeeper or identified 
developers.
If the DMG doesn’t open with a double click, and it’s an older file, it could 
also be corrupted or another issue with it as well. As “generally” most DMG 
files will just open automatically I find.

Hope that extra info helps.

Kind regards
Daniel

Hi Bill or Juliet

If you’re sure it’s an Application that is safe, you can right click on the 
Application (or Control click on it) to bring up the contextual menu, then 
choose “Open”. 
This will then ask if you want to open it with a “warning”. You can then choose 
“Open” and it will allow you to install/run the software.
As mentioned, as long as it’s one you’re fine running, then that should get it 
working.

Kind regards
Daniel

Re: iPhone photo's.

2017-05-06 Thread Daniel Kerr
If you’re activating it the first time you’ll need to tick the box to “Start” 
the sharing, then choose where you’re sharing it from (e.g. Photos or iPhoto).
Then you can choose if you want to share all photos, or you can separate albums 
etc.

If you want to just show it directly from your iPhone, you can do the following.
Once you’re looking at a photo, you can click the little box with an up 
pointing arrow. Then choose “Airplay”. Then choose the “AppleTV” in the list.

If you want to share the whole screen of the iPhone, you can also do this.
From the main home screen. tap from the bottom of where the screen starts in 
the middle then slide up. This will slide open the “Control Centre”
In the middle of that window you’ll see on the left hand side “Airplay 
Mirroring”. You can tap on this then choose your AppleTV. This will the mirror 
your whole iPhone screen to the TV. Then each thing you do will be displayed 
straight onto the screen.
You can then go through to your photos and show them that way.

Either of those options will work fine. 
(to turn off Airplay Mirroring, just repeat the above but turning it back to 
the iPhone.)

You can get more info on these here -

Re: Can someone please advise if I have paid my current year's subscription.

2017-05-03 Thread Daniel Kerr
Hi Philippe

Yes, as Brian as mentioned, if you can post to the list your membership has 
been paid. (as once a membership is paid the “moderated flag” is removed, 
giving you the ability to send to the list).
Otherwise people can read the list, they can’t just post to it.

So all is good from that side of it.

Kind regards

VBA with Excel 2016 and Mail - error

2017-03-29 Thread Daniel Kerr
HI All

I have a client that is wanting to email a PDF of an Excel worksheet. They’ve 
sent quite a lot of time going through trying to get it to work with no success.
(And have googled it quite a bit, and used some of the script code from - 
http://www.rondebruin.nl/mac/macmail/macmail2016.htm )
And still no success.

Clicking the button to run the code results in “Compile Error: Sub or Function 
not defined”. 
I’ve had a look to see if I can see where it falls over, but not really doing 
any VBA, I’m a little lost.

Just wondered if there was someone on the list who may be able to help.
If you’re able to help, please drop me an email off list and I can email you 
the file if you like.
(or just the code, whichever is easier).

Thanks in advance.

Kind regards
Daniel

Hi Diana

I’ve got a client with the SC-P600 (from memory) and he’s very happy with it. 
They are quite a good printer. I supplied that model to another client as well. 
I still find the Epson range very good. So although I haven’t had any personal 
experience myself directly, I know a couple people with them that are happy 
with them.

The WiFI printing works well, and you can connect the printer direct to the 
modem with Ethernet as well. This can sometimes be a bit more reliable.
(You may be able to still print to it from the G4 via Print Sharing or 
similar,…but without drivers for the older OS, it may be a little more 
difficult).

Java to install for CS4 on the 10.8.5 machine isn’t too bad. I’ve done it for a 
few clients using the Apple link and it was pretty easy. (as another option).

Hope that info helps.

Kind regards
Daniel

Re: Preview?

You can also hold down the “Option” key before clicking on the File menu (or 
while you’ve clicked on the File menu, hold down the Option key). You’ll see 
Duplicate change to “Save As”.
That also will work :)

Re: WTB: Photoshop Elements 12, 13 or 14 or Photoshop CS4

2017-01-19 Thread Daniel Kerr
Will do Kevin. (nothing currently).
I’m looking for the older one as it needs to run on 10.9.5. (which Elements 14 
did).
At least with yours Elements 15 will run in Sierra and it’s about $160 (as I 
looked up my wholesaler to see if they still had 14 around). So if nothing 
turns up, and you wanted it, just let me know and I can order it in for you.

But if something turns up, I’ll let you know.

Thanks.

Kind regards
Daniel

WTB: Photoshop Elements 12, 13 or 14 or Photoshop CS4

2017-01-19 Thread Daniel Kerr
Hi All

Just wondered if anyone might have a previous version of software they no 
longer wanted and would be interested in selling. (as I’m looking for it for a 
client).

I’m looking for either Photoshop Elements 12, 13 or 14 or Photoshop CS4 or CS5 
(or perhaps even Creative Suite depending on price).

If you have (or know someone that has) any of the above, if they could contact 
me off list that would be appreciated if they are interested in selling it.

Thanks!

Kind regards
Daniel

Re: Resetting iCloud - Photos sync data - has become Apple iCloud

2017-01-02 Thread Daniel Kerr
Hi Michael

When you install updates, or the main system itself, there’s a huge screen of 
Terms of Conditions. I’m sure it’s listed there,…(I’ve never personally sat 
down and read them all, but it does cover pretty much everything Apple, iCloud 
etc from what I’m aware).
And with every update that gets downloaded, there are links for more info.
For example,..if someone was to download macOS Sierra then the features are 
listed for iCloud Drive. For more info, it takes you to Apple’s website, which 
has more info.
Also, from the Mac App Store it has a link to a whole lot of information about 
it’s Privacy to do with it.
http://www.apple.com/au/privacy/
Any time you click an “Agree” button it’s saying there you’ve read all the 
Terms and Conditions and understand it all. (and generally most people don’t). 
Every install as a huge page of them. (most people click “Next” etc and skip 
through them all.
When a computer is first set up, (or you download a major update), all those 
Terms and Conditions are there. And each “partial” upgrade also has a page of 
them as well.
So when you installed the system that had iCloud, the Terms and Conditions 
would have been there, as part of the installation to install iCloud. (as part 
of the whole Operating System).
 
Depending on which iCloud Drive you’re referring to, as it’s slightly different 
in macOS Sierra, as it is to El Capitan as it is to Yosemite……… but it’s not 
all your “stuff” that goes up there (bar macOS Sierra Documents and Desktop), 
but you always have the facility to save them and keep them when turning it 
off. (In macOS SIerra it redownloads all the files).

“Other devices” you would own. The only way it can be used is with the AppeID, 
so unless you’re giving that to other people then obviously it’s only going to 
be your devices.

Following your example. If you bought a new computer with macOS Sierra, when 
you’re installing it one of the first or second (or maybe third, I can’t 
remember off the top of my head) is a massive window of lots of text with all 
the Terms and Conditions relating to the use of the computer and Apple software 
and iCloud and anything thing else relating to the Apple environment etc,..). 
Those same terms and conditions that every single software person or hardware 
person lets you click past when you install anything. So it’s not just Apple, 
it’s everything you install - it’s that huge page of Terms and Conditions that 
everyone clicks “I Agree” to and never reads (OK, maybe some people do, 
generally most people don’t. And to be honest, I think if some people thought 
about it, even in life when a massive contract is given to them, they skim read 
it all before signing it. Not everyone reads every single word and line of text 
in a written contract,…..they “assume” it’s all correct, and the same as what 
they’re wanting to get into/purchase/open a bank account/etc etc). Otherwise 
there’d be a lot less court cases I’m sure,….lol).
Also with macOS Sierra, when you first sign in iCloud brings up a window asking 
you if you want all your Documents and Desktop items to be stored in iCloud “to 
access from all your devices”. These are tick boxes people have the choice to 
tick or untick. (again, if not explained to them or go and read up on what 
these features are, then they may not realise what it does.).
Apple don’t “take control” of your Documents. They really don’t care. And at 
any point you can untick it to get it all back (in macOS SIerra etc).
(You may want to read that privacy link from above).
I know I personally would rather my data with Apple then say Google,…..

But again, it’s a choice. People have the option to use it or not use it at the 
end of the day……….
Apple don’t force them into anything….

On that note, I’ve spent more time on this of my holiday time then I wanted,…so 
that’s my last piece on it.  :))


Kind regards
Daniel
