  1. a new network has popped up in my finder sidebar in the "shared" section. i have no idea what/who this is or if its something i should worry about or if i can get rid of it or is it harmless? i changed the password on my wireless network and its still there.

    is this something i should worry about?

    here is a link to the image on drop box https://www.dropbox.com/s/9stexe5x3y0ivik/Screen%20Shot%202015-03-05%20at%2012.59.55%20PM.png?dl=0 and i don't think its the xbox because i unplugged the xbox and its still there in the finder sidebar

    well i ran little snitch and set it to show local network traffic. honestly I'm not really sure what to look for here. i didn't see the cs20 network thats in my finder sidebar show up anywhere in little snitch.. so my two major questions still exist. what is this cs20 network and is it malicious or anything i need to worry about?

    the name in the finder is just cs20 (see above image) i couldn't get any more info from it than that. maybe i will give little snitch a try and see if i can get any more info on the network

    I'm going to guess that its a shared network because my network is password protected and the only things connected to it are my macbook pro, iPhone and xbox. should i turn my firewall on? is it normal for other nearby networks to show up like this on my computer?

    Migrating without Migration Assistant

    ok thanks. i may not do this for a few days as I'm still in the "cleaning the crap off your old system" phase. but ill post here if i run into any issues as i make the switch over to Lion.
  8. I'm thinking about doing a clean install of snow leopard and upgrade to tiger as Adam has done. I listened to the maccast members episode where Adam describes in detail how he did it. He said he did not use Migration Assistant at all. I am guessing that he transferred over his iCal & Address book data using MobileMe sync. What is the easiest way to bring back my iCal & Address book data without using migration assistant OR MobileMe? (i don't have MobileMe)

    Migrating without Migration Assistant

    if you have an external drive that is an exact clone of your internal drive... then why would you physically swap them?

    gifting iphone apps

    does any one have any ideas as to why one can gift a song, album, or movie, in iTunes but not gift an iphone app for someone? i would love to hear some theories on this... or better yet, the REAL reason if anyone knows it.

    Suggestions for full-time Adam

    not exactly sure yet what is going to change with Adam taking the maccast on as a full time job but, if its some sort of subscription podcast model is introduced, where paying "members" get more content, i would be willing to support it.. i guess we will see when he announces more details.

    re-partition an external drive & preserve data

    thanks Graham, i will give it a try.
  21. i have a 500GB external drive partitioned into two parts, one half is used for time machine backups, the other half holds my itunes library. i want to use the entire drive for my itunes library now. is there a way to re-partition the drive using disk utility while preserving the data on the itunes music library partition? ( i dont care about the time machine partition as i am buying another external drive just to do time machine backups on). Is this possible to do, and if so how?

    archive trashed mail from iPhone

    i have my gmail set up with mac mail using imap. when i delete mail using mac mail, the mail gets archived in gmail. when i delete email on my iPhone, it goes into the trash in gmail, where after 30 days or so, it gets deleted permanently. is there a way to have trashed mail from my iphone be archived instead of moved to the trash?

    grid view quirk

    if you view your music in grid view it displays the album art and under that, the name of the album and artist (this is fine) ... do the same thing with movies and it displays the art and under that, the time of the movie...(this is a little weird but tolerable ) now if you make a playlist and add movies to it and then view that in grid view, it displays with the default music grid view style (album art, album name, artist). none of my movies have artist info so it just displays "Unknown Artist" under the movie title. i know this is a small thing but it is annoying, does anyone know of a way to tweak what text displays under the artwork in grid view?

    disable shake to undo

    is it possible to disable the "shake to undo" feature of the iphone? ive never intentionally used it once and its just annoying to have to cancel it every time it pops up.
