OK, so I’ve completely wiped my MacBook Air, time to rebuild it. Here is a list of things that have to happen. Sure sounds Windows like doesn’t it 🙂 # Remote install Mac OS X. Sigh. This is going to take 4 hours over the air apparently # Try the “Time Capsule recovery”:http://www.askdavetaylor.com/how_to_restore_imac_macbook_from_time_capsule_machine_backup.html which comes…

Sync Server spinning

I’ve had problems with sync between Entourage and iCal and sometime i get process Sync server running wild. So how to really break the link? It isn’t documented anywhere how this kind of syncing works. Even when you tell Entourage not to sync, I still see the Sync Server running. “Austin Kinsella1”:http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?messageID=5793364 points out that…

The Mac Address Book has a built in deduplicator which sort of works, but is better than nothing. With…

Mac Office 2008 somewhat faster

This corresponds to what I’ve seen, you’d expect that Office 2008 being a native Intel application would be much faster than Office 2004 which is PowerPC and runs in emulation on Intel. Well, the results are a little confusing. It is faster, but not much in many things: | | Excel Open | Word Scroll…

The readme certainly gives some hope: Description of the Office 2008 for Mac 12.0.1 Update Reliability is improved when synchronizing with a server that is running Microsoft Exchange Server.
