Try that. Thanks.

comment Connecting to IP takes longer than name
No. The remote side is probably doing a reverse DNS lookup against your v4 address which times out.

I'm glad this didn't turn heated :-). Thanks for being a open about it. If you were the person who voted down, could you kindly reverse it?

Did you even notice that he disabled IPv4 on Ethernet? There's no route over ethernet. I hate to be the one to break it to you, but you don't seem to understand this as well as you think you do.

comment Are there personal finance applications offering both an iPhone and a mac version?
That's not true. It was updated a few months ago to allow this.

comment Xcode and Apple Software Update
@global nomad: well this didn't work for me. I ran the uninstaller with sudo and mode all, rebooted and reinstalled xcode 3.2.3, but Software Update still doesn't recognize it.

comment Xcode and Apple Software Update
I do have stacked installs. I'll try doing the full uninstall and see what I get. If this works I'll accept this answer.

comment Is it possible for my HTC phone to interupt my music when I receive a call?
Why not just set your phone on vibrate so you can feel it?

@senseful: press shift with your pinky and double tap with your thumb? ;-)

comment Select whole words using single finger tap gesture
@calvera: true, but double tap means you can be less accurate about cursor position (anywhere in the word rather than exactly at the end). Fitt's Law rules.

comment What substances I can use to clean the touch sensitive screens like iPhone, iPad?
This is sold at the Apple retail stores. It's cheap, works great and comes with a microfibre cloth. It's designed for safe use on electronic devices.

comment Is it possible to have GPL software in the Mac App Store?
@Thilo but because you have to have validly "purchased" it from the MAS you're denied the right to share/redistribute. The GPL isn't only about source code, it covers four freedoms which all must be met.

comment Is it possible to have GPL software in the Mac App Store?
However, due to the DRM associated with the MAS it may run afoul of right 3, which is the sharing one. But an app that ignores the code signature and receipt (i.e., intentionally "piratable") may be in the clear. In any case, the MAS is not the same as the iAS. Also keep in mind that the original author can dual license. Using MAS license on the MAS and GPL on their own website.

I believe this is the correct interpretation of the GPL.

comment Should I use time machine to migrate from one mac to another?
No. On Mac OS X the real username is referred to as the short name. The full name (which normally resides in a gecos field) is referred to as the long name.

comment How do I disable update warnings on my iPhone?
Sorry, I assumed when you said "given to me" you meant using the iTunes "gift this" button, not just straight copied. In that case I would suggest you either delete it, pay for it or stop complaining.

comment How do I disable update warnings on my iPhone?
Granted, I've never gifted or received a gifted app, but I don't think so. Even paid apps that I delete if I "purchase" them again later it says "you already bought this, so it's free". iOS won't prompt you for any upgrades that you have to pay for.
