  • Title: Mac OS X Jaguar | Apple: News, Reviews & Features
    Descriptive info: on /.. I ve fine-tuned this method over a year and a half of OS X beta testing and while it s not for everyone, it works like a charm for me.. I call it anti-troubleshooting.. It works like this: I save as few files as possible on Jaguar (my boot volume).. And I avoid having my apps or documents in my Home folder.. If I can keep a file on a different volume or disk, I do.. My boot disk has little more than OS X and everything that comes with it.. If it s of value to me, it is stored on another disk entirely, cleverly named Storage.. Non-Apple apps are on Storage.. My Documents folder is on Storage.. iTunes Music is on Storage.. And my iPhoto library.. The point is: My application and data files are not stored on Jaguar.. So if anything on Jaguar goes wonky.. I have no qualms about blowing it away.. I could reinstall OS X from a CD, but it s even easier.. You see, my secret is to clone Jaguar every day when it s healthy.. I have a pair of FireWire disks I clone Jaguar onto every other day.. Since I am using Retrospect for a bunch of backup scripts that protect  ...   overkill for some of you.. But I install more new software and hardware in a week than most people do in a year.. And I test a bunch of different Macs at any given moment.. So having my boot disk be portable works for me in other ways as well.. But most of all, my clone lets me recover from almost any problem in 15 minutes or less.. Which happens to be about the length of my attention span.. After 15 I stop troubleshooting and start demolition I blow away (reformat/erase/initialize) Jaguar (my boot disk) and clone the most recent clone back to the boot disk.. I lose a few preferences and if I ve installed software that installs software in my Home/Library, I might have to reinstall it.. But I m back to work in 15 minutes, mostly intact.. Now granted I don t have to do it very often, and many of you will never need it at all.. But OS X has many pieces and permissions; it s easy for one to get just a little out of whack and drive you nuts.. When I m not in the mood to track down just why, my anti-troubleshooting system lets me get back to work almost instantly.. Tags:.. Share this article..

  • Title: Five Points For OS X | Apple: News, Reviews & Features
    Descriptive info: A friend on one of the e-mail lists I belong got a rude awakening this week to the awful truth that if you live part of your life online, as most of us do, none of us are safe.. Her PayPal account was hacked to the tune of $3,000.. The hackers also got into her.. Mac account, changing the answer to her security question to: Dude you ve been hacked.. They also hacked her primary e-mail account with her ISP, her eBay account and her cable account.. She talked to Apple security by phone, and they helped her change all of her passwords and remove her credit card and bank info.. She said the person she talked to at Apple had personally assisted in putting over 400 people in jail this year alone.. She has filled out a reports with both her local police and the FBI.. Because this is a federal offense, between the bank, the FBI, police dept.. , and Apple, I am hoping they nail the roast them, she said in an e-mail to the list.. All of this comes at a conspicuous time.. In case you haven t heard, on Sunday, July 6, the hackers of the world are holding a contest to see how much mischief they can cause.. This won t affect most of us, as it will be aimed squarely at Web servers.. Out of the box, Mac OS X is a very secure operating system.. As a matter of fact, the hackers in the contest will get extra points for hacking Mac OS X servers, just because they are so easy to break into.. According to one account on Computer World s site, Rather than focusing on the volume of defacements, the Defacers Challenge is set up to reward the skill of malicious hackers who can compromise systems running less  ...   updates on its Web site.. The company also has a page on how to report security problems and how to sign up for security notifications.. Turn on your firewall.. Turn off personal file sharing and Web sharing in the Sharing preference pane.. Keep your important documents and information in an encrypted disk image.. Here are Apple s instructions on how to do it.. In OS X 10.. 1 and later, you can turn on Open Firmware Password Protection, which will block the ability to use keys to do things at startup like starting from a CD-Rom, a NetBoot server or FireWire Target Disk Mode.. It also blocks the ability to start up in single-user mode.. If you get an e-mail from eBay or PayPal telling you they need to update your records, so click here to do it don t.. This is a common and easy ploy for hackers to get your information.. Although it s not easy to figure out where to send such things to eBay or PayPal to let them know of the schemes, they will never send you such an e-mail asking you to enter your personal information like that.. Short of turning your computer off (and who wants to do that when you have a Mac), there is no way to be 100 percent safe.. Some of the people who will be competing in Sunday s contest are very creative people who probably could do a lot to further the world s knowledge if they used their brains in more constructive ways.. We shouldn t let these things put us in panic mode or lead us to cut off all contact with the Internet or the places we frequent.. No, much like terrorism, that would be letting them win, wouldn t it?.. But it also doesn t hurt to prepare a little bit..
