I was running into this same problem at the same time that I was having problems with my printer. When I ended up using some specific drivers for the printer (instead of the default/universal Apple printer driver) the problem went away. So if you are still struggling with this issue, I would suggest trying to use a printer specific driver. Hopefully that ...

If you were transferring content to your computer from the disk, the write could be left incomplete. The main purpose of ejecting is to make sure everything actually transferred properly, but if nothing is transferring, issues are unlikely on the computer and the disk. Although improper ejection can damage the disk, it does not damage the computer.

Apple doesn't make you download on both systems, you can store them in the cloud. Select all the songs in iTunes on your mac, right click and select download. Those will only download on your Mac.

Use cURL (curl). It's a command line tool that transfers data using various protocols including HTTP.

You can use the Developer Tools in Chrome or Firebug in Firefox to see the ...

The proper command to dd a part of a raw file to a partition in your case is: dd if=WINDOWS7.img of=/dev/disk0s4 skip=206848 bs=512 count=41527296 The bs in the dd command can be interpreted as an artificial block size of the input and the output "file". For historical and technical reasons the default block size of dd is 512 Byte. The reason to use 512 (...

This problem is caused by OS X bash session restoration process which inserts in every '.session' file command like this: echo Restored session: суббота, 25 июня 2016 г. 23:29:08 (MSK) We should not use symbols like '(' in echo command text without being wrapped in quotation marks, but OS X forgot about it, alas.

So it appears that this was related to mac file structure corruption. I rebooted in safe mode and that rebuilt some caches which resolved the issue when I again rebooted in normal mode. I ran the disk utility repair to verify file structure as well. I talked with apple support who advised that safe mode bypasses the following caches, preferences, folders....

If you have Internet connectivity (who doesn't these days), you can use a Cloud Service to create a shared filespace that you can not only use between computers, you can use between computers located essentially anywhere. My favorite is OneDrive, but I have also used Google Drive, Box, and Dropbox. These are all cross platform (OS X, iOS, Android, Windows (...

You could map a folder on the local Mac to the PC and then just move files using the PC copy interface. That's probably the simplest and works across many versions of windows and OS X as well as regardless of the network configuration. You could set up a proper network share on the PC or Mac as well, but that's more work for little payoff.

I tried to install the app on my iPad and the installer created that folder and all those large files. So to answer the question: YES you can delete that folder and all the files inside it.

It is perfectly fine to use a moist cloth to clean the exterior of your rMBP. Moist being the operative word. If your cloth is soaking wet, dripping water, you have too much. I have also used cleaners like Endust for Electronics along with a microfiber cloth to clean both the outside as well as the display. It leaves it looking like new. I have, for ...

Then, save the search, which adds it to your Finder ...

By coincidence I am writing a blog post about this. I am assuming that you know the password, but the machine doesn't log into your account properly.

I too had this question before joining my college. I would suggest you to wait till July and get which ever mac that suits your budget. My personal advice would be to get something which is ultra portable like Macbook pro 13'inch or Air. I DONT think apple will be launching any updated Air anytime soon. So you should get the 13'Inch MacbookPro.

Homebrew on its own acts like a command-line App Store. It's safe, if you know what you're downloading.

Personally, I've never had any bad experiences with Homebrew. ...
