The iPhone 5

The smart phone market just got hotter. The Apple iPhone 5 ($200-$400) didn’t quite wow us, but it does bring some cool features that are ground breaking for apple, that¬† includes a 4-inch widescreen Retina display, brand new A6 processor,¬† aluminum and glass enclosure, 4G LTE and dual-channel 802.11n 5GHz networking, an improved 8 megapixel iSight camera with panorama mode, a FaceTime HD camera, 16, 32, or 64GB of storage.

Kaseya and Snow Leopard are incompatible (At this point)

This came to me via email and is worth noting if you are a Kaseya user.


Kaseya Agent & Mac OS X Snow Leopard

Important Notice:

For planning purposes, please be advised that the Kaseya Agent for the Mac OS X is currently incompatible with the new Mac OS X Snow Leopard release. Apple has announced that Snow Leopard will be available on Friday (28-Aug-2009). We have confirmed that Kaseya Agents cannot be successfully deployed to Snow Leopard. In the case where an Agent is installed on a Leopard system, and that system is subsequently upgraded to Snow Leopard, the Agent will be non-functional after the upgrade. We are working on a resolution and will advise when available.

Entourage 2004 configuration on Windows 2003 SBS

A client of mine purchased one of the new iMac’s and needed it setup on the network. Specifically, they wanted Entourage from Office 2004 for Mac to work with their exchange server. After following the setup wizard and putting in the proper server settings it still would not work. After searching numerous sites without any luck, I came across SimultaneousPancakes. There is an older post from January, 2005 that had my answer. Apparently, Entourage connects to Exchange using Outlook Web Access, quite similar to Evolution actually.

Leopard Server directory and file ACL removal

I found this terminal command for quick removal of ACLs from files and directories in mass. Found a need for this when restoring a system from a time machine backup that corrupted permissions on some files. (leopard 10.5.2) The restore added ACL’s to files that should never have them.The following works because one chmod will be executed for each directory, like we want:

find . -type d -exec chmod -a# 0 {} \;

Just replace the ‘type d’ above with ‘type f’ to remove the ACL for regular files.
