Tech / Apple service?
« on: April 17, 2019, 07:39:05 AM »
Long time  since my last posting.Please bear with me on this woeful saga. A couple of weeks ago I thought I would treat myself to a "last hurrah| in that I splashed out on an iMac Pro it arrived on Monday 8th April , with palpitation I set it up  only to find that it was already partitioned for Windows one on top of that there was an item (Superduper) in the trash, my first thought was is this  a refurbished machine?. I called up Apple care and the "techies" could not supply an answer, iMac Pro collected and replaced the following day only to find exactly same problem this time 2 unidentifiable items in the trash, anther collection and new machine only to find this was also windows partitioned. iMac Pro collected an monies refunded. This all happened in the space of 7 days and 5 hours on the phone with various levels o management Techies and sales, I let the techie "into" my machine to see for themselves but no answers were forthcoming.  Senior manager (I want give her name" offered me as a gesture of good will the magnificent sum of £80  which has yet  to appear in my account. might I ask for your comments as to my next move should be (if any)

Tech / Superdrive
« on: November 07, 2016, 12:09:14 PM »
My new 27in iMac  as you know does not have a external drive and I am toying with the idea of buying one.
I am hearing good/bad reports, on the down side there is no eject button and am also hearing that it when asked to eject it can be
a bit iffy and yet there are those that consider it to be the next best thing to sliced bread. I do know that one of illustrious committee members owns one and it sits snugly under the screen.
Advice or suggestions please.

Tech / Apple Mac G4 Cube
« on: August 29, 2014, 12:30:25 PM »
Have acquired  450mhz Cube and it's up and running (OS 10.4.11) sadly Mail appears to be corrupt in that it's icon shows in applications but not the one one would expect this one shows a sort of compass and dividers. When I try and activate it there is no response, how do I reinstall it, I do not have any original disks albeit I have a set of Tiger disks would they be of any help.
There are other issues but I would like Mail to perform first.
This machine is at least 13 years old but boy does it have style.

Tech / Elgato diversity
« on: August 11, 2014, 12:45:32 PM »
did a ts search and the last enquiry on this subject was 2009. I did have the wonderful Terratec2 (died on me) single tuner, things have moved on and am wondering if Elgato Diversity (twin tuners)
would fit the bill for my 28in iMac. My concern is that  it has only one female socket for coaxial aerial cable, can someone point me in the right right direction please.

here is my setup:
os x 10.6.8
cpu 2.8ghz Intel Core 2 Duo
memory 2gb

already have Lacie 1tb external drive used as backup using superduper.
have now installed 2nd Lacie 1tb external drive and installed clean Snow Leopard and then purchased Lion (from Apps Store) proceeded to DL direct to Snow Leopard and after 2 hours checked to find that it would take another 7 hours. Stopped DL.
Is it possible to have a disk sent instead of DL?
Suggestions please.
