Tech / Re: how to Zoom
« on: Today at 09:10:37 AM »
Thanks, Jim. It doesn't sound all that complicated. My iMac can only be considered to be a laptop for a user who is 8 feet tall, and I am merely 7' 11".  :toothgrin:

Tech / how to Zoom
« on: Today at 07:56:59 AM »
I am a complete novice with Zoom, having neither used it myself nor seen it done. In a few weeks, I will be participating in a Zoom meeting with the members of my orchestra and I need to know how to do it. I have set up an account at and don't have a clue about what to do.

Can someone walk me through the procedure?

The company I work for offers tours through the historic district of Annapolis, Maryland, led by guides dressed in Colonial clothing. While leading a group, Felix, one of our guides, tripped and fell, breaking his wrist.

He went to the hospital, and as he sat waiting in the emergency room, a policeman walked by. Doing a double-take at Felix in his 18th-century garb, he asked, "Just how long have you been waiting?"

Tech / Re: AOL email. Anyone have an answer to this?

Here's another way to back up your email: Select a mailbox and then go to Mailbox > Export Mailbox. You can then import that mailbox if necessary via File > Import Mailboxes. For more details, go to Mail Help and search for Export.

One more thing:  If you move emails to another mailbox, don't move too many at one time. I made the mistake of trying to move around 10,000 into another mailbox and Mail choked. Instead, select about 50 at a time and continue this until they have all been moved. It's tedious, but it's faster than trying to move all at once.

Be careful about losing all your emails. I followed Apple's advice about deleting an account from Mail and then reinstating it. I lost all the emails. Fortunately, I had a (mostly) complete backup. Before you delete the account, be sure that your emails are stored on your computer and not solely on AOL's server. To do this, you could create a mailbox in the On My Mac section of Mail and move your emails into it. I had done this before deleting the account and the messages that were stored therein remained after deletion.

Also, are you sure that the email that was from AOL really was from AOL and not a phishing attack?

Thanks, Jim. That's over my head. I guess that I'll have to deal with it.  :wallbash:

Tech / cannot print this page

When I access this site and try to print it, I see nothing but a blank page in the print dialog box. However, if I go to File > Export as PDF and then print the PDF, all is well. This has sometimes happened with other sites as well. Any thoughts?

I guess that we don't have to be concerned about flashers anymore.  :p

I have had very good experiences with Apple Tech Support. A phone call may be in order. The number is ‭(800) 275-2273‬

I don't use iCloud so this is a shot in the dark: Go to System Preferences > Apple ID and press Start Using iCloud

Sage medical advice:

Statistics show that women who carry some extra weight live longer than men who mention it.

Sadly, there is no way to do this. MS Office 2004 is a 32-bit application and Catalina cannot run it. Only 64-bit applications will work. You can always bite the bullet and pay for a subscription to Office 365 (I do, and the annual fee is not bad if I calculate the monthly cost), but you might be interested in reading Microsoft teases Office for Mac update coming, without subscription. Individual apps in Office 365 are available via App Store if you don't need the whole suite.

That said, I extend a BIG WELCOME to TS.  :thumbup:  :clap:

As an afterthought, it's possible that Office 2004 is a Power PC app only and won't work with Intel processors. It's been so long since I had a PPC Mac that I forgot about that issue!
