Geezer and Carbon based biped, with a fondness for hard cheese, Amigas, synthesised noises and competing in sprint triathlons.

Unix geek at heart, Mac user since 10.4 so still a little green on some things (Dog cow? Teh snappy?), but familiar to some extent with almost every current computing platform know to man, and some that aren't.

comment Finder does not show files in folders
Silly question - is iTunes up to date? There was a bug on the ~/users folder that cause people to not have access to their own files recently caused by iTunes (now fixed).

comment How can I figure out why my MacBook is crashing?
Great that you have worked hard to diagnose it yourself, but the question is missing some basic essential info. What do you mean by crash? Is it spontaneously rebooting? Just hanging? Showing an error? A mix?

comment Menu bar still present after uninstall
Not at a Mac, so can;t check exact steps, but look in system preferences > login > startup items and see if anything is listed.

comment Using Nickname or Contact Photos in Facetime
This is a good partial solution, it brings the contacts photos into play which is good. Still uses the same naming scheme, but it's a nice workaround.
