I know I have used “hey” as a subject many times… have to try to get a new throwaway subject.

Apple’s iDisk and Pictures

I have had no end of trouble with iDisk, combined with pictures… I have:

Used iPhoto to make a photopage–> result= didn’t work*
Used homepage to make a photopage–> result= didn’t work*
Put a big bunch of pictures in homepage.mac.com/dwightk/pictures (Pictures folder within sites folder in iDisk)–>result= no acces*

In the first two cases, the page showed up, but all the squares for pictures were blank, in 3 different browsers. In the last case, I get apple’s “homepage not found” page… Any help would be appreciated.

Ode to LaunchBar

LaunchBar is an application that I want everyone to try if they use OS X. This is a very un-Mac like app that makes it very easy to launch applications. I just hit command-space and start typing a couple letters of any application I want, and when it is the top application in the list hit return/enter.

I say application, but I really mean just about anything… MP3’s, Documents, hyperlinks… After 5 minutes of set-up to tell the application where I keep my Documents/Applications/etc it is set. Every time I log-in it automatically indexes all the locations I set up. This keeps my desktop and dock less cluttered, because I don’t need to put lots of apps either place.
