Resolved: The IP was blocked in the firewall and it has been unblocked. The cause was because of a ModSecurity firewall block. Ping was returning no response Traceroute was returning 12 hops and then firewall. Being able to access the site from another device must have been a fluke or cache issue. Thanks for suggestions.

Yes, you can use Boot Camp to start your Mac with the Windows operating system, and access the ROM programming features of the native PC drivers. Certain NVIDIA and ATI/AMD cards are more easily converted that others. There are several online forums which are somewhat dedicated to exchanging information about the process of obtaining an EFI ROM or making ...

I've set rights to all data on mac HD for user 'system' to read-only. Also I do it for the groups 'wheel' and 'stuff'. Only one user account with name 'mac01' has all rights to data on my mac HD. If you messed up with OS X permissions, normally you should run Disk Utility in recovery mode and run Repair Disk Permissions and Repair Disk to correct errors ...

I'm guessing that the homebrewed version of rsync is in /usr/local/bin instead of /usr/bin (which is as it should be), but when rsyncing from your linux box it's executing /usr/bin/rsync as the remote agent. If that's the problem, you should be able to fix it by adding --rsync-path=/usr/local/bin/rsync (or whatever the actual path is on the OS X side). ...

You've to correct the ownership (in some other cases permission or path) of your .plist file or force the loading by -F. Here is snapshot from launchctl.c: if (sb.st_uid != 0 && sb.st_uid != getuid()) { fprintf(stderr, "%s: Dubious ownership on file (skipping): %s\n", getprogname(), path); return false; }

Unfortunately there are no virtual consoles in OSX. All you can do is to ssh from another machine. Thats the closest thing to a virtual terminal.

I haven't actually done this, but the simplest solution I can imagine would be some combination of iOSSimulator or TeamViewer and then Sikuli, which lets you do graphical scripting with UI elements. It's difficult to describe, but go to that site and watch some of the Testing demo Videos. I'd be concerned that it would be a rather brittle solution, though. ...

I solved this 'delay' problem by remapping my command and control keys. Using the command key seemed to be causing unresponsiveness; so I remapped the keys switching the control key with the command key and pasting is now much faster than before.

Try which java This should tell you where the executable is. I agree with linuxdev2013, it is likely that you have multiple versions installed. I imagine that the newer version is probably in your path.

Sounds like you have both installed (OSX Yosemite iirc installs 1.8 by default) try adding 1.7 to your java --alternatives and or use the defined path (symlinks are lovely for this)

Unfortunately, you cannot add a mouseclick function in any of these or workflow. Even applescript has a difficult time implementing a mouse click in an app.

Figured it out thanks to comment from @w3d. The problem was because I was using a 3rd party keyboard. Mac keyboards have specific keys set aside just for performing system functions like adjusting display brightness and music settings. Some of OSX's keyboard shortcuts are tied to these function keys and if your 3rd party keyboard doesn't have function keys, ...

I think the Chrome hangouts plugin is very nice, and the solution from McGuire can be used to make a browser dedicated to hangouts. Alternatively we can also use Fluidapp, which "transform" Hangouts web application into a "dedicated" desktop application - which is stored like any other mac os application in the Applications folder. This seems to be a very ...

This issue was fixed by the following. Delete the "normal" template located in Documents/Microsoft User Data. Secondly, the preference for Word needs deleting. Open the library folder by holding the alt key under the "Go" menu. Go to preferences/com.microsoft.Word.plist and delete the file. Empty wastebasket and restart the computer. All worked for me.

It means that there is not a driver for that device in the kernel. Since Mac OSX uses a microkernel vs monolithic kernel like Linux. If you need to install drivers for this, an easy way to figure out what you need is to use a linux system. On the Linux machine, as root, run dmesg, then plug the device in and run dmesg again. Linux should tell you what the ...

Well finally I've found the answer myself and it solved my problem. So never use the /usr/local/bin/ssh-add. Use only default /usr/bin/ssh-add which goes with OS X. It works seamlessly with keychain so what I've done is just: $ /usr/bin/ssh-add -k ~/.ssh/id_rsa Simple. Now the passphrase is permanently stored in my keychain and I don't need to do ssh-add ...

iOS has an extensive set of built-in mechanisms (called UI Automation) to let you interact with on screen objects and areas.

I'm guessing your LaCie's SATA to USB/FireWire bridge has a proprietary password protection mechanism. Probably not full disk encryption, but just a password lock that keeps the bridge chip from allowing the drive to be mounted without successful password authentication first. Since LaCie hasn't kept their proprietary software up to date to run on modern ...

According to Apple's documentation, you must use a MacBook Air from mid-2011 or later to get AirPlay functionality from your AppleTV. The model you list (MacBookAir3,2) is showing as a model from late 2010. So, no, AirPlay won't be possible for you.

I believe google chrome can do this on desktop devices, just go to the browser menu and click save webpage. Also note that services like pocket may not actually save the website, and are thus susceptible to link rot. Lastly note that copying the contents of a website may infringe on copyright, if it applies.

Doesn't exists. If you want this feature you have to use an external program. For such thing, I use Moom (10$) where you can define a shortcut for it. Checkout the screenshot: This let me use ⌥alt+⇥tab to move the active window to the desktop on the right.

In my opinion, you would have a better experience using a Wineskin port on your Mac but, unfortunately, your VRAM isn't enough to run Skyrim (which requires 512Mb).

It is unlikely that it is panicking. All logs are easily readable using the Console application in your /Applications/Utilities folder. What you're experiencing is more likely to be related to a damaged filesystem on your startup disk, or possibly but less likely the startup disk could be showing early signs of mechanical issues. The best troubleshooting ...

10.6.6 didn't have the AppStore. It was added at 10.6.8, therefore I assumed you had this. Okay, that won't work on Yosemite (10.10.x).

You'll end up either in the local recovery or if not present, your ...

You could also, if you feel comfortable, manually boot into Single User Mode (Command + S right when you boot) and then run fsck -y to check the boot device for issues. Then try mount -uw /. Then if that works, simply type reboot and see if it works (fsck stands for "File System ChecK", so if you did a hard reboot you may have caused some issues with the ...

Another thing that still works is to drag and drop text into the prompt.

This might be caused by a missing or wrong digital signature.

Time machine works like rshapshot. It creates a tree of hard links for each new backup. Hard links to files already existing in a previous backup use very little additional space. Only when the last hard link to a file is removed is the file actually deleted from the filesystem. Removing an entire individual backup won't hurt. You're just removing hard ...
