Happy Mac

Well, the Mac is working much better now that I have stuck a Bluetooth dongle into it. I think that the antenna design in the Mac Pro is poor from what I am reading on the forums. The keyboard and mouse are working flawlessly now.

Mac troubles

Well, I’ve tried reducing the power on the wireless network to 28mW from 70mW, enabling Bluetooth Coexistence, moving the cordless phone and putting some white paper underneath the mouse. I’ve not had the keyboard drop out tonight, but it isn’t a perfect mousing experience either. More tinkering needed.

Imported some photos to iPhoto. I can’t seem to zoom into them and it imported circa 800 items from a directory containing 1200... yet more tinkering.

I did fix the calendar on my iPhone by finding out which entry had a start date after the end date though. Tinkering successful!

I did decide that I liked MacJournal enough to buy it though :)

I’m going to give MacJournal a try now that I have a Mac sitting on my desk at home. It is certainly prettier than Journal4 running under Windows. It is also more journal oriented than Notebook. I have 15 days to see how it goes.
