    » A week after the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), Apple moved on. Safari 5 was out, the iPhone 4 was coming and iOS4 was announced for June 21.

    » A few months ago, I interviewed Danai Chutinaton at Blue Pano, whose nice panorama images are used by several local companies for promotion purposes. He recently got in touch and sent me links to panoramas of the Siam area. He told me he had taken delivery of a new 44" Epson printer, which was installed in his new office near Samitivej Hospital. A few days later I called in, just in time to see a print job being wrapped up (http://www.bluepano.com).

    Database, Graham K. Rogers, Published on 26/05/2010

    » When I started looking at some essentials for users new to OS X, I had intended to outline some of the utilities I think are valuable. In the interim, when my MacBook Pro arrived. I looked at how I set up a new computer. I have now installed several of those utilities that help with the running of a Mac, and also found a couple that were new to me.

    Database, Graham K. Rogers, Published on 07/04/2010

    » For those new to OS X and Macs, the experience may be like walking into a dimly lit room. You can make out shapes of important furniture, but you may walk into smaller items.

    A warrior’s mentality to maintenance

    Database, Graham K. Rogers, Published on 28/04/2010

    » On several occasions while writing about OS X here, I have mentioned the idea of preventative maintenance _ fixing things before they go wrong. There is a school of thought that tells us “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’’, but a modern operating system has so many things going on that we cannot see (so cannot know about). Only specialist software will help.

    Database, Graham K. Rogers, Published on 12/05/2010

    » I have been running my new 2.66Ghz MacBook Pro for the past couple of weeks. I will report next time on day-to-day use and its performance. While I took great care to transfer the data and install applications, mostly by downloading from new, it was not all plain sailing. The software I use for the weekly podcast let me down and I am still looking at that. As a short-term remedy, I wrote parts of the feed myself.

    » I have been running a new 15" MacBook Pro 2.66GHz for the past couple of weeks. I took great care to transfer the data and install applications mostly from new, but it was not totally seamless.
