  1. It seems fine now Seahawk. MDN comments weren’t coming up unless I stopped the page downloading manually. Camino wasn’t suffering from it, only Safari, so it wasn’t MDN’s servers. Strange….

  2. k, I saw that sporadically happening to me as well but time ago. Maybe a couple of times in total.

    Well, seems you are ok now. Good night.

    * out *

  3. Here’s a mostly unrelated question: Has anyone else had a strange thing happen in Safari where the cursor disappears when it moves over the left side of the bookmarks bar and the buttons above them? To make things even weirder, it usually only happens when I’m on MDN’s site, although I have had it happen on one other site too, but I can’t remember now where. It happens pretty frequently on MDN though, at least once a day.

  4. ndelc:

    Yeah, that happens to me every now and then (I haven’t updated yet). Don’t know what causes it. I usually ignore it because the cursor arrow does come back. If you find out what causes it, please post it. I would like to know.

  5. there’s nothing fucking wrong, you need to do your damm maintenance.

    1: got to versiontracker.com
    2: search for Xupport and download
    3: click maintain and run all
    4: use MacJanitor or download Anacron by searching the Apple website to run your daily required cron scripts (they normally run in the wee early hours if your computer is on)
    5: get a external hard drive and Carbon Copy Cloner from versiontracker and make a “option bootable” clone of your boot drive for emergencies or bad software installs, update files manually.

    I just made your system boot run faster and saved your sorry asses from a crashed hard drive, you can kiss mine later

    my boot time from first Apple to complete desktop is a mere 20 seconds on 10.3.3

    beat that, I don’t have a single problem or glitch

    PEBKAC, problem exists between keyboard and chair.

  6. Dude, what’s your problem? If you’re trying to be helpful, that’s not the way to go about it. I DO thank you for the maintenance advice but you can leave the attitude behind.

  7. Hey PEBKAC,
    take a chill pill man. We don’t need to use the F*** word and you don’t need to be insulting to fellow mac people.

    PS “got to versiontracker.com”??? how about you “got to” a dictionary and check the spelling on damn.

  8. PEBKAC, kick any dogs on your way home today? Man, someone needs a little therapy. Thanks for the info, except I already use Xupport, and MacJanitor on a regular basis as well as leaving the computer awake all night once a month just for good measure. Obviously that’s not it. I’m surprised you didn’t already know that seeing as how you’re obviously the OS X expert around here </sarcasm> I wouldn’t expect you to know what you’re talking about as you’re obviously a Windows user. No Mac user would make such an ass of himself.

  9. PEBKAC, use Anacron and MacJanitor? Why, can’t you edit yourself the cron configuration dude? You are STILL frozen on the ungodly hours when your Mac is off?

    Or else, what about having the Mac awake by itself whenever is needed and back to sleep when no other maintenance is needed? What the need of cluttering your system with not needed stuff – unless you have no idea how to do it without that is.

    ~20 secs to boot? Is that abnormal? Happens quite regularly on Macs, only I can see that when I update because uptime is always high double digits.
    What about NO TIME to wake up from sleep? And daily incremental backups?
    Not to talk about partitions and have a network bootable system or your home on AFS.

    LOL, looks like you believe your audience is Windows users.

  10. Updated my eMac @ home with no apparent problems, tonight I’ll update the 10 Macs in work. Maybe I’ll just do a couple then see how they run.

    Is this update being released for OS X Server?

    PEBKAC, there’s no need for reboots in my office (apart from security updates etc.), is there something wrong with your Mac?

    Just for reference, my boot time from first Apple to complete desktop is a mere 19.9 seconds on 10.3.3. Beat that!
