Dry it out for a few hours in a warm place and see what happens :)

RAM is there to be used. It is a place for your computer to keep the most frequently used data so it doesn't have to fetch it from disk which is much slower (could be 50-60 times slower). The RAM in your Mac Mini is 1600MHz DDR3 if you upgraded at time of purchasing. This is capable of about 12800MB/s transfer. The HDD if it's a physical one is a 5400rpm ...

I found the answer under this link http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3964 1.Shut down the computer. 2.Plug in the MagSafe power adapter to a power source, connecting it to the Mac if its not already connected. 3.On the built-in keyboard, press the (left side) Shift-Control-Option keys and the power button at the same time. 4.Release all the ...

I have the same intermittent problem. So far, the only solution I've found is to reboot my Mac. Cycling the Mail app doesn't work. (MacBook Air, MacOS 10.9.4)

I developed uBar, which is a taskbar for OS X. It is very well maintained and while it is a Windows-style taskbar it follows the OS X aesthetic which is important. Feel free to check it out, I hope you'll enjoy it.

In the end, I did not find a way to make this work under OS X. I copied the file to a Linux machine, mounted it and then scp'd everything to my OS X running machine. Reasonably simple but takes some time and one needs access to two machines.

Yes, you can connect to it through wifi/cable without the Time Capsule connected to the internet. Yes, you can just store anything on it. No, unfortunately not. I am not familiar with this service. However, you can mount the Time Capsule as an external hard drive and thereby use it as any other backup device. Like answer 4: if the iOS program allows you to ...

The file you're trying to mount may have been made on a "none" file system.

OK, so I figured it out on my own. I used ID3 Editor instead of kid3. My workflow consists of: Filter items (Music) Open in ID3 editor Ask for confirmation ("click ok if you are ready") Move finder files Thanks for assistance Rilakkuma!

Use "Open Finder items" and choose a program from the drop-down list. An example from one of my workflows:

Your Bash prompt is not properly escaped for non-printing characters, so it thinks the prompt is longer than it truly is (and doesn't delete some of the characters). To fix it, add \[ and \] around the invisible parts. You need to change it to: export PS1='\[\e[31m\]\W\[\e[0m\] '

I experienced this exact problem yesterday. I fixed it by putting the ntfs drive onto a PC and searching for the files. They had all just been moved, not deleted--very strange. Also, running a disk error check in windows after to clean up any straggling issues.

You can install the old dictionary from your old OS X install disk.

I don't know of a general purpose Bluetooth only control that exists on the App store (but that store is really hard to search these days for a needle in the haystack of apps), but one of the more common remote control software packages does say it will work without WiFi on the Mac. http://www.airkeyboardapp.com/faq#no-wifi Once you've installed the free ...

If your iOS device is jailbroken, you can install WeBe++. This app can be used in Bluetooth HID mode which means that no software is required on the Mac to 'receive' the mouse input. This is what requires the jailbreak and why apps that do this in this way won't be found on the App Store. WeBe++ uses BTstack, a separate Bluetooth stack that gives more ...

I don't think MAMP relies on the php package installed in Terminal (or in OS X for that matter). MAMP uses it's own php version located at /Applications/MAMP/bin/php/php5.5.3 The modules are in the folder I noted above in a subfolder called /modules.

Short answer: No, it will not work. Long answer: Lion requires a 64bit processor and the Yonah processor on the mini1,1 still is partially 32 bit. You will NOT be able to boot in to Lion because you cannot boot a 64 bit kernel. However, it is possible to use a separate disk to boot into a custom boot loader and then load Lion from there (much like trying ...

Try going into System Preferences, then Sharing. At the top of the window should be a field labeled "Computer Name". Type in what you want and it should correspond with what you see in Finder's Sidebar.

You better uninstall Chrome: sloppy programming and not very safe. If you want some other browser than Safari, use Firefox or Opera. You can also uninstall the Google Updater (which is secretly installed at the same time): read here how to do that http://raamdev.com/2008/howto-remove-google-software-update-on-mac-os-x/ this also works in Mavericks.

Safari 7 is documented in many Mavericks reviews to be better at extending battery life and CPU usage. That ethereal link has an animation in the background, I'm assuming that's what's using your CPU.

As far as I know, you can't "launch" the installation directly from Windows. From there, you have two choices : Normally, you should have a recovery partition on your Mac. Boot on this one, you'll be able to repair or reinstall OS X. Create a bootable USB stick with OS X on it to reinstall your main partition. There are lots of tutorials that show how to ...

You did right so far. But you have to move all ATI files from that folder as well. It will work after that, but the graphic will be slow.

I'm not aware of a way to make the power button tell your Mac mini to perform a normal shutdown, however one solution that comes to mind (assuming you have an iOS device) is to shut your Mac mini down from your iPhone or iPad using an app like iShutdown. There is a small application that you install on your Mac. And then you have the app on your phone that ...

23" Acer T232HL works without issues with Windows 8.x and Ubuntu 14.04 -- but not with the latest-and-greatest stable release, OS X Mavericks. OS X Mavericks recognizes it, but first few touches always go to upper-left corner (coordinates 0,0) and are interpreted as a click. Only third or fourth touch goes to the proper place -- but at that time it's ...

Can I change the brightness on a secondary display? This thread (although the question is slightly different) offers answers to your question.

I was able to manually eject the tray with a paper clip. Now back to square one (operating in Panther). Guess my question was why the install aborted or whether I need to do something differently to upgrade, like a system restore of Panther b/4 installing Tiger.

I don't know if it's still like that but you could try to keep the mouse button pressed while booting: it used to force a disc eject.

Thanks to all the posters and commenters, this has been a instructive and useful thread for me. My recent experience might be useful to someone. I use my Mac Mini with OS X10.8.1 and with 16G RAM entirely for prototyping software that will be run elsewhere. I can assure you that I will not "go back to Facebook in a few minutes or re-launch Word after ...

Carbon Copy Cloner [Bombich Software] might do what you need. Set up a new drive GUID/HFS+ Install a clean OS, same as the previous [safer as the state of the old one is suspect] then use CCC to copy the rest back to that new drive.

This is possible with the free app Audacity. That is, it will work if you are editing sound and wish to change the pitch of a recorded sound. I am not aware of any free program that will do this with live sound, on the fly.

I am not aware of anything that will do this task in real time as it requires some math to do the pitch shift. It is possible to take the alert sounds and process them to a different pitch like you said using an audio editor and then assign custom sounds, but an ongoing pitch shift would take some processing and I do not believe that there is a solution for ...

I just went through this same problem. Originally I called Apple and they said that iLife was linked to someone else's account so I could not download it.
