Re: [MMUG] Re: Imac 27 inch

Apple consider the RAM to be a user replaceable part, so as long as you don't force anything it should be fine. [link] They may ask you to refit the original RAM if you are having issues that could be related to it failing, or being out of spec etc. Boot into Apple hardware test (hold D on boot, or opt+D to boot via the internet) & run the extended test if you want to be sure it is OK after install. Enjoy the glory of the old platinum interface in AHT.

Re: [MMUG] Time Machine

Are you just trying to delete from the TM disk in Finder? It is protected by ACL's to prevent users from nuking other peoples stuff (& the system files). Disabling ACL's & deleting stuff is a risky business. Does the built in method work? Select a Finder window, use the Time Machine menu to enter 'Time Machine'.

Time Machine

Hi I changed my iMac a couple of months ago. I have just noticed that I now have 2 Time machine backups, one from my old machine and one from this new machine. I have tried to delete the old backup but I get the error message "The operation can't be completed because the item "1b0" is in use"

Re: [MMUG] Using a cellular iPad on the Isle of Man.

Thank's Drew, Unfortunately I would need help to set up a VPN account. Until sometime in the last twelve months Shetland phone/internet access went via a microwave link from Caithness piggybacked over Orkney. 3MB was described as fast broadband. Anything that slowed access even more would have just increased the frequency of timed out messages.

Just one minor correction - if your iPad has 3G it does indeed also have GPS. --Ian ___________________ Ian Collier ian.coll...@mac.com +44 7866 510075 ___________________

Re: [MMUG] Using a cellular iPad on the Isle of Man.

I think you are right about Mapfinder, I was thinking the iPad had cellular & GPS. I'd doubt it will be very accurate on just wifi. It looks like The Isle of Man has been 'streetview scanned' so maybe some access points are in the DB. I thought all cellular iPads had GPS (at least AssistedGPS), you should be able to get a GPS fix, but you'll need an app that has the tiles pre-cached.

Re: [MMUG] ADOBE FLASH PLAYER

That's up to you. Flash has 'cookies & data storage' that can store info to make pages load faster & keep track of what sites you use, what adverts you click etc. If you disallow them there is a chance that some sites will run slower, or they won't give you targeted ads or remember your place inside a Flash website or video. Chances are they already use normal cookies to do most of the tracking they need.

Re: [MMUG] Using a cellular iPad on the Isle of Man.

Thank's Derek, I fear that you are correct about the Isle of Man's mobile phone, mobile internet infrastructure. As far as an iPad Sim goes Manx Telecom can't come up with the goods. I have found a Wi-Fi facility over there that will give me full internet access. I had been hoping to use the OS map finder App to record my routes on the Isle of Man but I can't use it without mobile access.
