Re: Try It, You May Like It. Ira L 09/27/23 06:06 PM
The most significant feature I saw with ARC was the use of profiles (look at the screenshots on their web site to get a sense of this). But I just read that the new Safari update included with macOS 14 (Sonoma) also has a profile feature. I have not checked it yet.

I don't agree with that.

As also noted in the opinion, SCOTUS's recent involvement with executions has not been 8th Amendment related at all, rather it's been restricted to rejecting stays.

As cold-hearted as the conservative majority is, I'd like to believe that it's at least got enough humanity to disallow a method of execution that's not even fit for cats and dogs, the condemned prisoner having opted for it - indeed, having had no other option - notwithstanding.

An example of what confused If you mean apps with registration key files how about Tinkertool System 8, DriveDX, and BetterTouchTool, but I have more.
Yes, you got it right. I wanted to see what those key files are, and I see that I've got them safely backed up on two externals.

In this instance, perhaps it's more appropriately called a "techropsy." smirk

I'm really curious about how Trump the draft dodger will act/react when he passes.

Re: Weird Safari doings artie505 09/20/23 11:26 PM
It happened again, but this time I got a helpful screenshot.

Also curious is where that Top Site came from. It's WQXR FM radio, which I haven't accessed in Safari in, I'm pretty sure, years. I visit that site in Firefox.

Re: downloaded free movies to desktop joemikeb 09/19/23 05:29 PM
The download folder is a function of the application that is performing the download. In Safari you will find the setting here. Most browsers have that setting in a similar location. If you do not find that in a particular applications settings they typically perform their download using the default browser and follow its settings.

Google’s decision to change their download API is no fifferent than Apple’s decision to replace macOS’ 32 bit APis with 64 bit APIs, and likely effected more third party Windows apps as well as macOS apps.

Re: New window joemikeb 09/16/23 10:36 PM
It will reappear periodically when a new device, new app, or app update, occurs and attempts to access system files, devices, or services that have not been previously approved. I can't verify this at the moment, but IIRC app store apps are sandboxed and do not require user access verification.

Missing notifications arrived all at once yesterday, no idea where they'd been stockpiled or what changed to get them delivered. Email system is now working properly, AFAICT.

Bottom line is that spam is the fact, not the ability.

Re: Making a bootable external drive in Ventura artie505 09/04/23 09:45 PM
I just tried Recovery again, but this time, as opposed to the instructions in Jon's linked article, I shut down/started up rather than restarted, and I got into the security pane. (My pref was set as I remembered.)
