high five bmike

I'm Mike Bradshaw. Please contact me if I can be of assistance as one of the Moderators of Ask Different on Stack Exchange.

Note, If you are emailing for help answering your question as opposed to help with moderation of the site, be sure to send a link to the question. I can't answer every troubleshooting question here (my paying customers have priority). If you have an exceptionally tough problem to solve, I do love challenges. Help us help you by asking a stellar question.

I'm often in the chat rooms here, but I'm also very much on the twitter as @bmike.

comment Why does Apple do things differently?
Questions asking why apple does X are off-topic here. If you have a practical question about working around or changing a design choice, please edit the post so we can re-open it for answers. The Ask Different Chat room is also available for conversations and discussions of this sort.

comment How Do I Know If A File Has Been Successfully Synced To iCloud Drive?
This is a nice graphical way to check as well. I've seen many cases where there are many folders that are in the cloud and haven't even gotten to the finder, but it does show things nicely once finder is aware of the specific files you care about. +1 and thanks

comment How to move photos from an old eMac to an iPad?
Is the eMac running 10.6? Please let us know the version of OS and what version of iTunes. Your best bet might be getting the photos into iPhoto on the emac so let us know what version of that you have available with an edit to the post.

comment iPhone shows offline but can still make a phone call - why?
Welcome to Ask Different. What problem would you like to solve? We generally close discussion "questions" especially if they have components that sound like complaining and ranting. Could you edit this so it's clear what you'd like to do given the situation? (Basically do you not understand how the tool works, do you want to learn how to lock or display a message on the phone?)
