I'm a Computer Science nerd, longtime Mac addict, and software engineer in Silicon Valley. Happily, I work mostly with Objective-C, but I also work in Java, enjoy Python, and avoid C++. I'm also the author of CHDataStructures.framework.

comment Can I disallow printing with parent controls on Snow Leopard?
Well, that's another idea, but sometimes I do want to be able to print something, but only with parental approval. A dummy printer might help somewhat, but children are amazingly skilled at testing the effectiveness of parental controls, even if unwittingly. They click on everything and know how to use menus, so I wouldn't count out the possibility of them figuring it out. The accepted answer works the best of every suggestion I've received and anything I've tried. :-)

Not a good solution. I still want to print, and don't want to have to remember to pause the queue before they log in. I appreciate the humor, but this really isn't feasible.

The options are a little odd, but I added the printer to the user's printer list, then required admin password under the "Access" tab. I also had to click "Always" to get the settings to apply. Kludgy in some ways, but it worked. Thanks!

Thank you, looking at that right now. BTW, that link is for 10.5.5 — for Snow Leopard, support.apple.com/kb/DL968 points to the current latest version.

The BYU MUG (Mac Users' Group) also has a very helpful list for such topics. mac.byu.edu/mailman/listinfo/byumug-discuss

comment Is Mac OS X Leopard (10.5.x) 32 bit or 64 bit?
Agreed, it does a pretty decent job of explaining most of the key 64-bit concepts.
