Well, why not? this is a community, after all.

I'm so frustrated with my Airport Extreme. Every day or so it kinda goes to sleep and I have to wake it up by modifying the DHCP lease time (set to 3 days) and doing an update. There are several wireless networks in the neighborhood and it can't seem to figure out how to keep running reliably. I've seen this reported elsewhere, with various suggested fixed including changing channels, interface robustness. None seems to work. My AE is the first edition of the new flat mini-style box. Are newer versions any more reliable?

Mine has been very reliable in my apartment building. When did you get yours? I am using it with SBC DSL.

quicken is a time sink, but i keep track of it nevertheless. i hold a multitude of full-time jobs and so expenses that might seem inconsequential add up to serious money at the end of the year. finding them in order to deduct them makes a difference.

That I can see -- if all the various costs of "doing business" individually are spread out over the whole year unevenly if makes sense to have a master ledger to track where you are at on the deductibility cut off. With my relatively uncomplicated streams of income that effort is not needed.

My old AEBS, 802.11g loses its mind every few days and stops serving data. Connections can get IP's through it, but no internet connection. I restart it when I notice the issue (I'm usually on my 802.11n network) and the problem's gone for a few days.

I hear that's life in the porn industry.

>you hold a multitude of full-time jobs?

yeah, how do you think i survive in the greater nyc region?

"this is a full-time equivalent job.

ok. i have another one of those, is that an issue.

no.

ok then."

i have two now, plus a home business, probably will have three in the fall. what can i say, saving for a mortgage.

luckily, i'm 8 times as productive as your regular SOB.

anyway... anybody help me with this...

does anybody actually own an AIR? or have access to the application that actually sees the disk remotely? I'd like to try it on my DVD-drive-less MBP...

so, you work 80+ hours every week?

What a journey.

As long the boss was not part some organization were they had some policy where your 40 hrs had to be "beck & call/chained to desk/facetime" I could see that working. I mean after all every week has 168 actual hours in it. Three full time gigs would leave more than 6 hrs a day for sleep...

Salaries are pretty goddamned arbitrary. Two jobs ago the guy who was my direct boss made about 10% more than me, his boss made about 5% more than him and the big boss two levels up made only about 2% more. Last job I made about as much as the old boss, but the boss two levels up was making a whopping 90% more than me. Salary only. I saw their online pay stubs, part of the fun that comes with poorly architected DB security...

Baha, the app is built in to 10.5.2. But it ONLY works on a MBA.

is it just me?

since enabling time machine, I see overall system hiccups/slowdowns, etc. Just typing <--- THAT sentence the keystrokes paused, then caught up!

I can turn it off and it's okay.

me?
It's okay if it's me. Just wanna know! :)

What a journey.

Hmmm that is not good.

I only use TimeMachine manually thus far. On my laptop I come into the office and backup to an attached firewire drive once or twice a day. Doing so right now... thanks!

I don't have problems on my iMac core 2 duo. I do turn off time machine if I am going to be playing games or video editing.

you mean you manually switch it to OFF?

Doesn't everyone think the backup schedule should be user-configurable? (like not HOURLY, but perhaps daily)

What a journey.

I dunno -- there a lot of debates on what constitutes "reasonable" for backups, as so few people really are diligent about making them. I wish I had time to look at more of the work that that companies like EMC did in regards to "scheduled" vs continous backups, but I seem to recall that a big push for enterprise to use SAN is there is so much slack time associated with filling in the stuff that happens between scheduled backups when a restore is needed.

I wonder if there is some kind of yucky wireless interference in your situation -- do you have the same issues when you are "jacked in" too?

can someone explain how the WEB server in OS X SERVER works?

I have let's say 5 'sites' defined, and I use dyndns.com/org to point to my dynamic IP.

I want all the sites to be separate and people that no one url can't get to the other one in any way without expressly knowing the URL.

First, is this POSSIBLE?

Well, I have found that if you ping ANY ONE of the URLs (like billsmith.gotdns.org) you can get my IP. Then, if you just put in the IP, you can get a directory listing. But how does the web server (site defs) determine which directory listing one sees? It APPEARS TO ME that the topmost-defined site in the SITES PANE is the one, only IF the FOLDER LISTING checkbox is checked for that site. Is my analysis correct for that?

This is TIGER by the way.

And can I password protect the folder listing? (easily)

Thanks.

Oh, also, it appears that the topmost site on the sites pane, if I put xxx.yyy.com or zzz.yyy.com and NO PAGE (like index.html), then it defaults the topmost's default page (either the directory listing or the index.html). Is there a way to prevent that? Because it defeats the 'keep them separate' goal.

What a journey.
