    Pather is coming! Panthers are coming!!

    Any Mac OS users wishing to share in the experience? My copy is due to arrive tomorrow, but with the in-laws coming to visit it might be a tough weekend to install it. A couple of reports here and here

    <img src=/S/bwaaah.gif border=0 alt=bwaaah width=123 height=15> It didn't arrive. Tracking it shows that it left Ireland on Thursday and the Nethlands on Friday, but no sign of it now. Well at least with the in-laws in residence there will be someone to sign for it when it arrives next week <img src=/S/please.gif border=0 alt=please width=31 height=23>

    Ah yes. The ultimate virus protection - non-delivery of the target! <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>

    Thanks Leif,
    for a while there I thought I was going to be talking to myself. Late delivery was my own fault. 1 chose the cheaper 2 day delivery which doesn't include the weekends ... That's my Canadian heritage for you.

    OK - all installed now. Only one issue, my HP all-in-one (scanner, fax, printer and photocopy) stopped scanning. A quick check of the HP site showed that the HP drivers that came with Panther don't support scanning ... re-installed the driver for 10.2 (Jaguar) and everything works fine. Expos

    Re: Pather is coming! Panthers are coming!!

    Hey I love this new OS, and Expose in particular. With an F-key press (or mouse into a hot corner) one of the following happens;

    1. F9 - all of my open windows reduce so all are visable on the desktop. Mousing over them tells me the application and file name, or
    2. F10 - all of the windows in my current application reduce so all are visible on the desktop - Mousing does the same.
    3. F11 - all of the windows on the desktop slide off (up, down, left, right) so I can access whatever I've got on the desktop!

    Why didn't they think of this before???? Its great <img src=/S/bouncenburn.gif border=0 alt=bouncenburn width=31 height=31>

    Great explanation of Expose on Page 6 of that article. I certainly hope we see it in Foghorn, whenever that is. I love it!

    I'm hoping that Gnome or KDE pick it up for the Linux / Unix side of things. I like that idea!

    Re: Pather is coming! Panthers are coming!!

    Thanks SMBP - Yes I had seen the notice of the hole. Apple has already patched it and I've downloaded and installed it. The PC Mag article is a little difficult to take. Yes I know that Mac users can be intolerable, and love to gloat, like I do (but just a little) but this guy says "in one respect I was happy to learn earlier this month about the discovery of a significant security hole". I can't belive anyone would say this.

    The article isn't very informative and doesn't really explain that to exploit this hole they would have to have hacked your network. If they had got that far in the first place this hole would be the least of your worries.

    To say that the Mac OS is 'just as vulnerable as Microsoft Windows' isn't actually the case. This guy says he switched from Mac to Windows and it shows.

    Google blocked a pop-up and spybot prevented the spyware avenue-a downloading from this site. Mac's may be safer when it comes to invasion but Mac friendly sites certainly don't mind attempting to invade Windows. Frankly, I'm unimpressed and always angry when a site attempts to spark up spyware. Any lounger not protected should avoid this link. <img src=/S/cop.gif border=0 alt=cop width=15 height=24>

    Smbp - thought this review lf Mr. Ulanoff's article might be of interest.
    No Macs are not Invulnerable, but they don't just lie there either ...
