Community / Hello from Dick Peairs

Hi to Dick from Jane and I.

Tech / Printer died
« on: February 22, 2017, 08:35:49 AM »
What I like about the Canon is that no matter how long it's not used the Ink doesn't seem to dry out.
I have 2 Canons, one here in Florida and another in our northern retreat. Not using the printer for 5-6 months doesn't seem to phase it. All other printers (HP, Brother, Epson) would dry out.
I haven't tried generic ink yet.... don't tempt me. ;-)

Have had Epson, HP and Canon over time. The Epsons lasted many years and the ink was the cheapest. The ancient HP is still running as a backup, but the best quality has been the Canon PIXMAs. They both can scan but I have a separate scanner that is larger and has templates for film and slides. However, as noted above, the Canon ink is outrageous in price. We decided to take a risk after spending a fortune and go for generic refills and have had no problems as yet.

Question, what about GoDaddy?
When I spoke to Godaddy yesterday to verify that they were not the cause of my problem, they invited me to be hosted by them.
If all the Hosts will eventually be gobbled up EIG or some corporate gobbler, perhaps Godaddy could be considered?

Thanks folks, it's a mess.  I do have all my data in  web client so there is no loss there. I use the domain address for email primarily so I can change all the important email to my other accounts, but it's a pain. I received an email from the A Small Orange Abuse dept @ 10.14 pm asking me to go into my customer page, acquire a code, of course I can't access it. They want proof of payment which I provided again and again and again. What's up with these people? I received no warning, no prior inquiry, they just suspended my account and then originally blamed Godaddy for it. I had just renewed Godaddy for 2 years so I knew it wasn't them. I offered up another credit card if they needed it, just turn the site back on, nope they couldn't do it. I'll see if the Abuse Dept is more cooperative. If not I guess it will be a legal matter.

When I woke up this morning my website was down as well as my email account. I've had issues with this company but usually a quick email would resolve them, and I've never lost my website.
"This Account Has Been Suspended
Please contact the billing/support department as soon as possible. "

I use the usual email address that I've had since Tim Dorr invited me to join them when we were at NoWonder, but today I get a reply that says they no longer use email for Help. I have to sign into my account to acquire a Code # and use it in a Chat window. The problem is, I can't access my account...hello. 7.5 hours later and still no joy, frustration is mounting, when they finally suggest that I contact (via email) their legal department. security requires that I produce a code and without it they can't even tell me what's wrong.
I'll tell you what's wrong.... but your not going to like it.
If this is the future I want something else.
Can anyone recommend a Mac Happy Web Host.

Tech / clone will not boot
« on: December 10, 2015, 06:41:03 PM »
Jon, I tested a number of backups programs and for some reason, that I can't remember, CCC seemed clumsy. Oh, and now I remember, I couldn't find the security encryption tool for the run. You had to wait until the clone was finished, boot from the clone and encrypt with FileVault.
We fill drives for storage pretty regularly around here, and the AES encrypt option in Get Backup fit the bill.

Anyhow...I'm glad you found a solution, though it would have been interesting to read your assessment.
Take care.

Tech / Super Duper won't clone to External Hard Drive

If your considering using a new drive/enclosure over 2 TB make sure the drive has a Asmedia1051 chipset.

I agree with Paddy's HD suggestions, I run a Black WD 4 TB in a Rosewill RX-358, works well, though I typically had to cover the bright LED light.
The cost s low, the fan is quiet.

I acquired this backup software when I upgrade to Mavericks +/- 2years now... Works flawlessly.

If you're feeling a little adventurous give it shot.  thumbup.gif

edit: and the same in El Cap too.

Tech / Quicktime plug-in_ El Capitan
« on: November 06, 2015, 02:32:52 PM »
Thanks for the heads up, it explains a few questions I had. Oddly, one of the cameras, my latest purchase provided access where the cameras that were a year or older didn't. Could be a software upgrade out there I'm unaware of? One issue that became a particular problem was with Netgear's ReadyShare app. The r6300 router is better than expected but I guess their software division can't keep up. Parallels and VMWare have also been an issue.... Thanks again!

El Capitan has presented me with a few other issues concerning the System Integrity Protection (SIP) application causing issue with other programs not listed on the page I reviewed before installation of El Cap.

If I recall, Apple and everyone else, for that matter, is moving away from plugins. See:

Chrome has QT disabled by default as well, apparently.

I don't create QT content for websites any more - don't think most people do. Gone the way of the dodo, along with Flash.

FYI/ I've upgraded from Mavericks to El Cap and discovered an issue that was vital to me. For some unknown reason El Cap moves these two plug-ins from the plug-in folder to the sub-disabled plug-in folder, resulting in Safari alerting me that I needed to install a Quicktime plugin.
The warning provided a link to Apple so I went to the page, but there was no plugins. I was at a loss and needed access to my surveillance systems.
An internal search led me to the <Internet Plug-Ins> folder, inside the folder was another folder <Disabled plug-ins> and there sat two that appeared to be QTime related. Needing to view my cameras I risked relocating them to the active folder and presto, back in business again.

QuickTime Plugin.plugin

I don't know why this happened, so subsequently I searched for more info only to discover that others have had the same experience and solution.
That made me a little better, at least confident that my Mac wouldn't over react from the switch.

Happy Holidays!

I hope your move is rewarding....though I suspect it's a matter of necessity.
We haven't had to make that move yet....but did move one of the seniors to our 1 story house in Maryland.

Tech / Any Gmail users?

G-Mail secondary address, I still use my own encrypted account for secure transactions.
As of late, Yahoo has been giving users some trouble. I never cared for them.

I feel your pain... my PB 5300 was retired (past along) this year...still working.
The G3 tower...still going strong but hardly used.
The eMac gets more attention now and then, but hardly enough to justify the space and dust.
I use a MBP primarily, and a Mini server. My significant other has an Air and Mini.
We both use Samsung phones and tabs. We're down to 1 printer from 3 and Faxes are done using eFax.
Oh I still have that big metal SCSI backup box that we both purchased some years back. Not to mention boxes of cables, and connection dodads. It's been a long road. °¿°
