    Leopard and iBook 1.33

    Just heard back from him. There is a 500 GB NASD in the office so he should be able to use Time Machine to that, right? -=Tim=-

    Visual Hub and TiVo files

    Thanks I'm continuing my enquiries at the second link. -=Tim=-
  3. Kinda a specific issue but hopefully someone will know something. I've got some .TIVO files that I'd like to move onto my iPod. Visual Hub will input the files but it appears to crash during conversion to iTunes format and the resulting file is blank. Any ideas? Thanks! -=Tim=-

    Convert Windows Works to Mac Word

    Perfect, amazing, outstanding! I'll be sure to donate!! Only slight weirdness is that Quick Look displays look kinda weird and crammed in but that's the least of my problems. I just went through 184 .wps files in about 30 minutes and converted them to .doc. I never fail to be amazed by the Maccast community, I don't think I've posed a question yet that I didn't not only get a solution but an outstanding one! -=Tim=-
  5. My wife loved Works and used it for years. Unfortunately I can't read the Works documents with my Mac Word 2004. Is there a converter (preferably a batch one) that can do this for me? Thanks! -=Tim=-

    Convert Windows Works to Mac Word

    Tried this but with a WPS file I get a message that TextEdit cannot open the file as its an unrecognized format. -=Tim=-
  8. I've got some OGG files that I'd like to convert to MP3s so I can play them in iTunes and my iPod. Can anyone point me to a program or workflow that will accomodate this? Thanks! -=Tim=-

    Convert ogg to mp3 for iTunes

    Does it also allow transfer to an iPod? -=Tim=-

    Convert ogg to mp3 for iTunes

    I used a PC program, in my case J.River Media Player, to do the OGG to MP3 conversion in place and then went back to iTunes and ran "Add to Library" but I'm sure any PC file conversion program that can do OGG to MP3 would do the job. J. River Media Player is a paid for program that I used to use in my former PC life and for a little while in the Mac world too via Parallels. Very cool program but iTunes integration into the iPod is tough to beat tho' Media Player is a LOT more powerful. -=Tim=-

    Convert ogg to mp3 for iTunes

    Great! I batch converted the remaining OGG files. Thanks! -=Tim=-

    Convert ogg to mp3 for iTunes

    Update: I found a semi-convoluted way using Parallels and a Windows program I used to use all the time but it would be nice to find something a little more elegant. -=Tim=-

    Safari 3.1

    Any way to stop Safari from opening new windows, I have turned on "Open links from applications: in a new tab in the current window" but it often opens other windows anyway. Thanks! -=Tim=-

    Safari 3.1

    Thanks for the referral but it was not easy to install so I skipped it. I'm totally transitioned to Safari 3.1 and like it a lot! -=Tim=-

    Safari 3.1

    More questions on Safari. I've used .Mac for synchronizing Address Book, Calendar, etc. I've turned it on for Bookmarks on both my laptop and desktop and I see it updating but it doesn't seem to be updating each other computer. Is there something else that needs to be turned on? -=Tim=-

    Safari 3.1

    Newbie question: I'm a Firefox user trying out Safari for the first time with 3.1. How do I put separators into my Bookmarks menu? Thanks! -=Tim=-

    Random Play

    Graham, thanks for your help. This one is the bomb! Perfect! Exactly what I was looking for. -=Tim=-

    Random Play

    Is there a way in iTunes to set a playlist to list and play the items randomly? I know I can set this up in the iPod but I'd like to set it up in iTunes. Thanks! -=Tim=-

    Random Play

    Sorry to hang on this but its driving me nuts. My wife has some material on her iPod that's Genre: Spoken but most of it is Genre: Music. She wants to shuffle the music but not include the spoken. This must be possible, no? -=Tim=-

    Random Play

    This will make the Playlist play randomly on the iPod? Sorry if I didn't explain this well. -=Tim=-

    Upgrade iBook?

    Thanks for the feedback. The clean reinstall is an interesting idea I knew this was good for Windows but wasn't aware that its helpful for Macs too. Anyone know of a tutorial that walks you through the process? The one in iLife '08, I just upgraded that for him. -=Tim=-
