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.

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.

comment Unable to Resize Partitions
please check my edits, I am not sure if you have actually installed Yosemite on the 2nd partition yet or not. At first I thought not, now I think you have. Just trying to word it to prevent Yosemite off topic flags, as I believe the issue is valid and not related to the pre-release software.

comment Is it OK to charge my iPhone with my iPad charger?
I think you had a faulty charger, or a faulty phone. The best information is at source, the current iPad charger (which is rated even higher at 12w than at the time this question was asked) shows compatibility with practically every 30-pin device made in the last 10 years. store.apple.com/uk/product/MD836B/B/… Where devices have intelligent controllers to adjust their power draw, the important thing to remember is that chargers are rated for what they can supply, not what they will supply.

comment No Simcard installed - iPhone 5
:) But seriously, it's a moving part that is only held in place by friction and a tiny sprung plate. A couple of drops could, in theory, loosen it up a little. Also, is your Nano Sim cut down, or factory nano? I had a Micro Sim on my iPhone 4 which only worked if I trimmed a mm off one side then taped it to the underside of the tray...
