Subject: some help wanted...
It seems, as if there are mac clients around that hickup with citadel. I've heard a citadel admin having troubles with them not being able to cut a mail into the attachment and body part...
Could some (or all of you) add an imap / pop connection to your favourite mac email client and try to send some mails with attachments to your uncensored account and view it? Maybe the citadel support room is a good one to inspect for mails with attachments too. A short note which client you've tested from with other endpoints (webmailers like hotmail/....) would be nice.

They all get mucked up pretty bad, yeah (strangely enough, I hadn't tried before). I'll knock one off to citadel support> for you.
can you sniff such an imap session? where you look at such a destructed message?
please turn of TLS for that, and... change your password temporarily ;)
Except nadia, I guess?
kate's got a powerbook which I think is a g3. it's not fast, but I put 512meg in it and it runs well enough.
I can get actual numbers if anybody really needs to know, but I use that machine once a year so I don't remember much about it.
Apparently you can watch full 16x9 video on the new ipod nano.
People use dto be made fun of for hunching over their little laptop, but now they're going to watch full length feature films on a screen the size of my thumb? (I have a rather large thumb as thumbs go.)
This just seems a little beyond silly to me.
Why not make a pair of iGlasses that project two images for video.
I've seen these advertised for an outrageous amoun of money, but I expect if you paint it white and put an 'i' in front of it, people would pay.
Become one of the thousands of zombies who will sit and watch a video of an iphone installing software while listening to half a phone conversation that goes on mostly about "un huh, yeah, un huh, yeah." for six minutes.
Geeks are amazing.
Except nadia, I guess?
yes. but for clarification i work in 2 labs right now where one has linux and windows, and the other has macs.
i have a machine to reinstall at home (when? who knows.) not sure what's going on it yet but it'll be either linux or windows <cough> or both.
Apparently it did - an OS 9 system folder, but the entire contents of OS X had been removed. Like it had been formatted.
So, I'm in the process of seeing how well Retrospect does on a full system restore.
Retrospect did restore the system - most of it. Enough was missing that the system is unbootable. There's a long-discontinued program that allowed you to create a working 10.3 on a CD (ala BartPE), but there's no support for 10.4 and it definately won't work on an Intel machine. I'm using the CD to copy the files Retrospect restored back to the server (using Retrospect isn't a good idea - it took more than three hours for 1.25 GB), and then I'll reinstall OS X.
Anyone know if Apple has updated the Mac to allow bootable USB hard drives (they're easier for me to get than Firewire)?
Anyway, so we were speculating that perhaps Apple will come out with a full sized tablet or desktop with the iPhone UI. And there will be applications that work with that UI. Maybe they'll even work with phone companies to make an instance of your phone on your desktop that works as an extension of your cellphone, via IP.
Well, I got home and read engadget and apparently there are some rumors of an Apple PDA that is basically a bigger (but still pocket sized) iPhone...
(Banter about how horrible it will be when Google owns all your data will be summarily IGnored because the usual rules of network computing will still apply; i.e. organizations who care will run their own servers.)
Apple definitely advanced the state of the art with the iPhone UI. I don't want an iPhone right now but I'm looking forward to perhaps owning a similar device in a couple of years once the rest of the industry catches up to the "new way" of doing a mobile operating system. It's the first time that a smart phone doesn't look like a computer desktop jammed into a tiny screen.

I am really enjoying Firefox. I rarely use Safari anymore. For starters Firefox is much faster at loading pages.
I also like the "save" functioning. When I want to save a web page, the Fox downloads the html(etc,) page and all the
supporting files - images, graphics and whatnot - in a separate folder, so I get the whole page when I double click it.
Safari doesn't do that. It downloads the html(etc.) page as text only. I know, I know... I'm preaching to the chior here;
but I really like this browser. Nutritious, and tasty too! "Hey Mikey!"
I think the iPhone is a bit more evolution than revolution, but it's still a very big step, and nowhere in sight is a Simpons lambasting.
I have 12 tabs open. Is that a sin?
Funny how it sounds like people spoke of windows, having to reboot it every day or two.
As for the iphone tablet appliancething.
Cool as the gadget will be, if it's a tablet, nobody's going to want to carry it around with them, so it will sit on the counter at the house or on the kitchen table until somebody spills coffee on it or it falls on the floor.
The PDA kinda thing would be handy, but I still don't see how they're going to get around not relaly having buttons.
You don't hear about people using "grafitti" too much anymore, now do you.
Now why is that.
Now that Apple has shown the world how it's done, things might change.
put on my work computer. Even before PuTTY and Labview.
