Noticed some strange things showing up in the "Shared" area of a Finder side-bar and decided to run iStumbler. It opened fine but crashed/froze several times. Unfortunately, that version came out as release 99, back to Feb, 2010! <Release 100 GM Candidate 3> is available but still in ίeta. Seems to run fine. YMMV. wink.gif

<Default Folder X 4.4.8> brings back contextual menus, compatibility problems with Chrome and QuickTime and more.

AirPort Utility on Lion updates:

Please read this thread before making any updates on Airport Utility and/or the firmware update on your base station! <AirPort Utility 5.6 vs. 6.0>
and <Regret updating to AirPort Utility 6.0>

There are two updates. You may end up with two AU apps (if you now have AU 5.5.3), the 5.6 will be needed for older devices and many have found it is still needed because the version 6 is modeled after the iOS UI (dumbed down!). Both apps can be used/installed but should probably not be running at the same time. Sounds like a train wreck waiting to happen! I don't intend to install either update for a few days, hopefully after the "train wreck" is cleared! smile.gif

Matter of fact, AU 5.6 doesn't even delete the older AU 5.5.3! So, if you make both the "updates" you'll probably have THREE versions of AU installed. wallbash.gif If you read the two threads below, you'll probably decide to wait on the 6.0 version, also. Some have become quite alarmed at the loss of functionality, even though some have found ways to get it back. The consensus is to just use the new 5.6 app unless you need the Back-to-my-mac thing on iCloud.

<AirPort Utility 5.6> "Resolves an issue with using network passwords stored in the Keychain. Works with AirPort Express 802.11g and AirPort Extreme 802.11g base stations" It also must be available to use the next update.
<AirPort Utility 6.0> adds changes needed for iCloud and AirPort Express, AirPort Extreme, and Time Capsule

NOTE: MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A BACKUP OF YOUR CURRENT DRIVERS BEFORE UPDATING THEM. BETTER STILL, WAIT A FEW DAYS/WEEKS TO SEE IF ANY OF THE UPDATES DO THINGS YOU'D RATHER THEY NOT! smile.gif
A "Slew" of Printer driver updates! <This page> will let you choose one for your brand (if it has an update, of course) or run Software Update which will download only the appropriate drivers.
NOTE #2: Be sure to check any special features of your printer after the update. Does it still print Duplex? Does the scanner still work? Does it recognize print settings in previously created documents? etc.

OK by me, but they'll slide off the front (and other pages) as other rethreads get added. The last thread on my front page was only started Feb 9, barely a week ago, easy to miss any thread started much more the a week ago, if things don't slow down a lot. dntknw.gif I kinda thought that was the whole point of having 'pinned' threads. Since I think all 'skins' show when there's a new message, it's easy to see when something is...uhmn...new? laughhard.gif

sometime later in the day...
In response to the thread just after this one unless it (the one after this one from kimmer, that is) gets deleted, I'll just delete the one I made before this one since it makes no sense in the combined thread, not that it made much sense, anyway, as it came from me, if you know what I mean...[this sentence has been ended sue to an over use of creation punctuation]

Good point. I'm going to merge this thread into the pinned thread, and leave that thread pinned.

Two useful utilities:

DefaultFolderX update: <4.5 now available> Makes selecting a Save/Open directory a snap!

Just started using this one: <TotalFinder> I normally always had two Finder windows open to facilitate moving stuff. TotalFinder adds a 'tab' function (among several other things) to Finder window(s). So now I can have one Finder window but with multiple tabs for different directories! clap.gif It's not cheap at $18 but I have not seen any problems with it in ML, so I'm probably going to purchase it. There are versions available for other OS X installs, BTW.

Since this kind of app is seldom run and it won't be noticed by Software Update, here's some news about the latest update of <TechTool Pro.> Looks like the biggest improvement is in the memory test, the fact that it's now a 64-bit app and that it will be Maverick compatible.

Thanks for this. I had a dickens of a time actually finding the download, but I did and it's installed and all is well. So far. wink.gif

Sorry, I just linked to the info page. The download should have been in the Mac App Store->Updates. dntknw.gif

BTW, the app doesn't have a "Preferences" menu. You have to go to the System Prefs and then select the "Software Update" Pref Panel. wallbash.gif There, you can check the 'Automatically check for updates' box and you'll get a Notification should there be one. That's all I allow it to do, thank you very much. Just be careful when you get a notification! There are two buttons:
    1. 'Show me the meat' (or something like that, it just opens the MAS and the Updates section).
    2. 'Download and install and even Restart, if needed, without further notice or concern for what I might be doing! ARE YOU SERIOUS?'
