    Ian, you are correct. I was mistaken in using that term. Radio radiation, up to the visible light frequencies and into near-ultraviolet, are non-ionizing. The radio frequencies do generate some...

    No, I didn't think you were concerned about radiation, but that is what the objectors to 5G are saying. One of our US Senators has even come out suggesting blocking 5G until "research can be done" on...

    There is something wonky about this thread. It shows that it has an unread post, and that there are 4 pages, but when you select page 4, it cycles back to page 3 and there are no unread posts at all....

    The thing people seem to be worried about is ionizing radiation from the radio signals from the 5G sites. According to what I have read, a "Metro cell" will transmit about 10-20 w overall, and a...

    Also, what are you using to "see" this disk? If the disk is a movie, then no external drive can be used because your iMac has an internal drive for DVDs. There is a much more complicated way to have...

    What edits did this article suggest? Can you provide a link to this suggestion? Normally, plists are not meant to be edited at all. The system creates them as it needs. "Plist" is a form of shorthand...

    I'm not quite ready to call it Vista, yet. Just disappointed that MA didn't work, didn't give any reason for not working. That experience now argues against a nuke/pave installation, just an overlay....

    The iMac doesn't recognize the drive, it only recognizes the disk in the drive. I couldn't tell from the description if you had put a disk in or not.

    Also, in Finder/Preferences, make sure...

    Rod, depending on how well 5G actually works in practice, the idea of wired, or fiber optic cable connections may be overtaken by wireless. It's much easier to put up a network of 5G, 6G, whatever,...

    Bob, it was just the first option on the list, frankly. Either way, the install was going to change what was there. It had been APFS, so reformatting to HFS+ guaranteed that there was nothing left on...

    OK, so I tried to install Catalina to an external thumb drive. Downloaded the installer, made a bootable USB with the installer on it. Let's call that Little Thumb. Then detached all of my external...

    Here is a thought on car tech. How long do you think it will be before the "Log in with Apple" functionality will be used to open/start/lock at least one manufacturer's car? Take out your phone,...

    Good to see the conversation starting. As I said, key fobs, particularly earlier ones, have little security and are easily copied by a thief with a receiver to intercept the communications. And cars...

    This thread has drifted way off topic. I started a thread at Shweb's Lounge on the topic. Let's move there and leave this for Catalina Bugs.

    Computing Ubiquity

    Sure, for older tech. But more modern security shuts down the car if the fob is outside range. The thief can start the car, maybe, and jump the ignition to get it running, but if the fob isn't close...

    Not that I am aware of, Patrick. If everything was made visible, the menus would run off the bottom of the screen. I don't know how Apple decides what gets the honor of being visible in default. I...

    Could it be that your backup drive was attached for the second run? If it was, SysInfo actually looks into the backup, sees older versions and reports them as 32 bit (because they are). So run...

    Really? Dozens? I used it maybe once a week, more often less than that. And pressing the Option key to get it to appear was pretty painless. There are a lot of features available with the Option key.

    Mojave uses APFS, which handles "partitions" totally differently. That may well be why iPartition abandoned the development as Apple has not released the internals of how APFS actually works. At the...
