How to Really Reset your .Mac Sync Data

How-To: Truly reset your .Mac sync data
By David Chartier | Published: February 25, 2008 - 03:28PM CT

As many users of syncing products know, sync can be tricky. Items can
sometimes get duplicated or not synced at all, and getting the system
working again can be an exercise in witchcraft. Apple's .Mac syncing
features are sometimes no exception to these problems, and even though
Apple provides a number of decent solutions in its .Mac sync support
pages, they don't always work. Fortunately, a brief adventure using
.Mac sync chat support (found at the bottom of that aforelinked page)
cleared up a repeating merge/overwrite sync dialog problem for me,
and we felt the procedure was worth sharing.

 there are tradeoffs having to do with record encryption or .Mac sync.
 Would we be willing to sacrifice those features for individual file
 storage?

Most times I've heard the database vs individual files decision
explained in terms of performance.  Generally speaking a DB will be
much faster, if I recall correctly.

Encryption can be done on any file, so that's a non-issue.

.Mac sync isn't working for me anyway.

I'd trade reliable syncing for just about anything ATM.

  Curious, why is this bad?

 1. Backup...the entire DB file (mine is hundreds of MB) needs to be
  backed up.  I backup everyday, both to external drive and offsite.
  That means the large Yojimbo file needs to be backed up every day,
  taking up unnecessary bandwidth and disk space.

  2. Data integrity...if the database file gets corrupted, you could
  lose all your data instead of only 1 item.  The Yojimbo competitor
  Together (http://reinventedsoftware.com/together/) does it this way,
  storing each record in a separate file.

It also, I would assume, is why .Mac fails to sync Yojimbo so often.
Instead of syncing 1,000 small files, it is trying to sync one
monolithic DB.  I can't get it to work with .Mac or SyncTogether's
latest beta.



  Contrast the way that Microsoft Outlook (not sure about Entourage) and
  Mail.app store mail messages.  Outlook puts everything in a single
  database file.  Mail.app stores each message in a separate file (but
  utilizes a database file for indexing). I have 3GB of email which
  means that Outlook would require backing up a 3GB file wheres for
  Mail.app, I only need to backup the new message files and the small
  index file.

Um... are you sure about Outlook?  I know it didn't used to be that
way, as I would routinely have to make sure that the Outlook PST
stayed below 2gb.

Entourage doesn't store a single email per file.  It too uses the same
Huge Database Concept.


   Hmmm, I would always be skeptical of a backup solution that runs
on live data.

 I would never use a backup solution that didn't run on live data.
  Thankfully the days of they system is down for backup are long gone.
  Whether I use Time Machine or I use Super Duper or Chronosync or
  something else, I'm certainly not about to take my machine offline or
  logout to do the backup.

I certainly wouldn't be using Yojimbo or any other DB app while
SuperDuper et al are running.  Sure it might not throw an error but
you still risk problems.

I run SuperDuper at night when I go to bed and then have it
shutdown/sleep the computer.  I quit all my running apps except SD!

  That's not the case; although .Mac must ultimately contain your whole data
  set before syncing between machines can take place, all data transfer takes
  place incrementally.

Well then I wish I could figure out why it never works.  No error
messages in the dot-mac sync log that I can see, but I've got 8-9 more
Yojimbo entries on one computer than the other, even after resetting
sync data on both and choosing Merge

Re: Attach a file?

2008-01-27 Thread TjL
I realize some folks might resent a suggestion of a non-Yojimbo answer
for this but I offer it only because it has been such a help to me.

Yes, I too would like some increased flexibility for licenses, as I've
gotten not just files, but now an image file (1Password).

Before I used Yojimbo for this I had another way of keeping track of
them.  I created an email account (IMAP) and whenever I got a new
license code, I forwarded the message to that email address.  When I
was setting up a new computer or hard drive or whatever, I could
easily get the codes via webmail or by pointing my mail client at the
IMAP account.  Since it was IMAP (not POP3) I didn't worry about the
messages getting removed from the server.

Now I have a GMail account and have a special label I use for
registration codes.

This was especially handy when I was reinstalling software and tried
to launch Yojimbo only to be told that my Yojimbo demo had expired --
so I couldn't get my Yojimbo license code out of my Yojimbo database.

For what it's worth, I find that a little effort on the front end
(label it / forward it AND add it to Yojimbo) helps a lot.

Now that some of them are files instead of codes, I add a Serial
Number in Yojimbo which says See GMail

Oh, and just for completeness, I keep those license-code-files in
~/Documents/License Codes/ which is backed up to iDisk :-)

Why do WebArchives take so long to load?

I made a web archive of this page:

http://www.nytimes.com/2008/01/06/magazine/06wwln-medium-t.html?_r=3oref=sloginpagewanted=printoref=sloginoref=slogin

which is just text, but it takes a long time to load into Yojimbo when
I am going through my library.

Is it trying to pull data from the network?  How can I tell Yojimbo
Just save it for offline use?

I've started using copy/paste instead of webarchives.  That seems to
be a lot faster to load, but it's not as convenient to drop quickly
into Yojimbo.

 Here's a quick script which should either do what you want, or serve

Thanks.  I'll give it a shot  report back.  As far as additional

script but who knows, maybe this is the project where I start to
learn something about it.

Re: Getting printer-friendly version of web page for archive

 Webarchives fit in with priority 1 as well. A webarchive is just a
 bundle containing an HTML file and associated graphics files. I have a
 feeling I'll still be able to read HTML files in 30 years on whatever
 computer I'm using.

I suspect the larger issue will be what to do with my massive Yojimbo

Getting printer-friendly version of web page for archive

2008-01-10 Thread TjL
Is there a way (OTHER than using Print To Yojimbo) to get a WebArchive
of a webpage to use the Print CSS file?

The new Macworld.com design (which I loathe) took away the easy
printer-friendly URLs.  If you actually print them (even to PDF) you
get a so-called printer-friendly version, but how I like the store web
pages is to make a web archive of them instead.

Talking with someone @ Macworld yesterday he indicated it is very
unlikely that the printer friendly URLs are going to make a comeback,
and when he asked why I needed one and I told him about Yojimbo he
suggested that I check to see if Yojimbo could be coaxed into using
the print.css.

I can't find anything that would indicate it can, but I thought I'd ask.

 This may not be universal, but I have a number of PDFs printed

 possible that this is a feature of the 3.0 WebKit that is in
 10.4.11 and later.

Ah, that might be.

So far the easiest answer has been to copy from OmniWeb and then have
Yojimbo capture it in the Quick Entry thingy.  You lose the nice
formatting of images float:left or right but other than that it works
pretty well and I can get just what I want.  Then I go back and copy
the URL and paste that in before sending it into Yojimbo proper.

responsible for the bulk of about 1gb of upload traffic I had last
month when I tried to use it.

Until someone comes out with a new way to sync across a LAN, I've

Re: Yojimbo 1.5 and sync services

2007-12-05 Thread TjL
On an anecdotal level, here's my story.

I've got a 1.5mbps DSL line at my office which no one else was using.

I have a little over 1100 items in my Yojimbo DB (which weighs in at
about 162mb).

.Mac routinely throws up all over itself trying to sync Yojimbo even
when left alone untouched not-even-running during the sync process.

What does .Mac tell me?

The sync failed because of an error.

As I wrote on my website:

Oh, it failed because of an error.

Gee, thanks.

What-the-blank else other than an error would cause it to fail?

Here's what it would look like if .Mac wrote up death certificates:

Patient died due to death.

Failed due to an error…. DUH!

Grrr.


Long story short, I wouldn't rely on it if I were you.

Short addendum: I'm not sure there's anything BB can do.  This one is
up to Apple to fix.

Every January I hope to hear that something amazing is going to happen
with .Mac.

Every year it's a disappointment.

Last year's big news: 10GB of space!

Yippee.  I've got like 300gb of space from Dreamhost for about the
same price.  10gb, give me a break.  Yeah, I can upload all my
pictures and video now! (*)

SyncTogether? or other LAN sync apps (other than .Mac)

2007-11-26 Thread TjL
I'm looking at SyncTogether for LAN syncing of Yojimbo and wonder if
others have used it with 10.5.1 and if so, how well it works.

I've seen some older messages with problems but there have been a lot
of changes to SyncServices lately so I'm wondering if things have
gotten better.


Are there other options other than SyncTogether which don't use
Internet syncing?

 Has Yojimbo been extensively tested with the various Leopard builds,
 and does BB anticipate the need for a maintenance release?

I'm not a developer and don't know anything about BB behind the
scenes, but I would be completely shocked if a product as mainstream
as Yojimbo wasn't ready for Leopard, especially given the extra time
that it's taken for Leopard to get here.

I'd be more worried about 10.5.0 (or any first-version OS) than
Yojimbo, but from the information I've seen on leak sites about
Leopard, it appears there are only a few minor issues left in Leopard
to be sorted out, so I don't see why there would be.  I haven't seen
anything to indicate a major shift in 10.5 despite the original
secrets that Jobs seemed to be holding back on.

Either everyone is holding fast to their NDAs or Leopard is going to
be more incremental.

Click on the cog wheel at the bottom left of your Yojimbo screen  
and choose the Smart Collections flyout. It's in there.


thank you. I have searched through the menu and missed this option.


You're not alone.  I was looking for that the other day.

It's also in View  Smart Collections

Did you change the permissions of the directories and files  
involved? (Hint: old user - new user)


When I write permissions I actually mean ownership.


If this had happened to me, here's what I would do

1) Make a backup [which you shouldn't need but, you know CYA]

2) Quit Yojimbo

3) Launch Terminal.app and then copy and paste this line in


sudo chown -R $USER ~/Library/Application\ Support/Yojimbo/



and hit return.  It will ask for your administrator password.  Type  
it in (it will not appear on the screen for security reasons).


I just tested this on my 10.4.9 system using /bin/bash as my shell  
and it worked fine.  YMMV.  Use only as directed.  Caveat  
everything.  (Gawd I hate the litigiousness of modern society)

OT - Yep on-sale today only

2007-06-05 Thread TjL


Apologies for the OT post, but I've seen Yep mentioned here several  
times, as a complimentary program to Yojimbo, and so I believe this  
will be of interest (and I'm not making a dime off the deal of course):


$20.95 (reg $34)
http://www.macupdate.com/download.php/22022/Yep_1.6.2.dmg

Buy Yep 1.6.2 now and it includes a free upgrade to Yep 2.0!

Good today only (6/6/2007)

TjL

who feels he ought to give a shout out to http://www.filebrowse.com/  
which is not quite the same but also decent and only $25
