Mac OS X and Mac OS X Server Essentials: Day Two. Things got even more interesting today. Did I mention my instructor has the seventeen inch TiBook? It’s beautiful in person. I got to play with some BlueTooth stuff today, for the first time. It’s very cool. It reminds me of what IrDA wanted so deparately to be when it grew up. Pairing was a snap, and sharing files was slick. We had a great roundtable about troubleshooting Mac OS X today. That followed the lesson where we all left the room, our instructor “broke” our machines, and we came back in and figured out what was wrong. The poor woman at the end of my row had a tough time. The instructor took a screen shot and set it as the desktop picture, then proceeded to hide the dock and hard drive. She couldn’t figure out why the menus worked, but the dock and hard drive didn’t respond to clicks. Mike and I did that to Dave several times. We even got him to do a clean install when he was still Mac OS 9. He thought his control strip was hosed.
Mac OS Rumors: As had been widely predicted, Apple has released a March 24, 2003 Security Update to OS X, which is available for download and install (requires a restart) via Software Update. Egads. Good show, fellas! Not really a rumor, though, is it?
Well, the Safari seeds are done, thanks some ne’er-do-wells. Gruber has a great analysis here.
Daniel Pepper: Anyone with half a brain must see that Saddam has to be taken out. It is extraordinarily ironic that the anti-war protesters are marching to defend a government which stops its people exercising that freedom.
