JPEGCleaner, quickWebAlbum and WebsiteCleaner updates released
A solution to the ‘weird bug’ reported earlier (see post).
Anyway, I now have a possible solution!
Repair permissions and another restart did nothing….
I then ran MacJanitor and ran daily, weekly and monthly tasks. Weekly rebuilt the locate database and that seems to have fixed the problem.
Odd bug with 10.3.6 on a PowerBook G4
Just upgraded the computers at MMISoftware to 10.3.6 and have discovered a rather nasty (and weird) bug on a PowerBook G4. If a folder is clicked on the contents will not be displayed and a spinning wheel appears in the bottom right hand corner of the window. However, if another folder is clicked on and then you return to the original folder the contents will be displayed! All very odd…..
A restart does not fix the problem and the ‘folder-double-click’ has to be repeated to get the contents to display.
This does not happen on a ‘lampstand’ iMac.
Fun and games moving iCal files to Palm Desktop
iCalMaker is able to import appointments from iCal files and from Palm Desktop vCal files. However, the format of iCal and Palm Desktop vCal files is different, in fact iCal (ics files) use version 2 and Palm Desktop uses version 1 of the vCalendar Format.
So what? Well, version 2 of the vCalendar format is much more complicated/sophisticated than version 1 and in version 2 it is possible to construct some incredibly complicated repeating events (e.g. repeating every other year with certain years excluded or ‘ every Tuesday and Thursday for the next three months unless the Tuesday is the first Tuesday of the month’) that simply cannot be mapped backed to version 1 as version 1 does not have the ‘tools’ / ‘language’ to construct/describe such an event. When iCalMaker encounters such an event it puts up an error and will stop the construction of the vcal file.
Now the question is, how should this problem be dealt with? Should:
1. the event be ignored and the file constructed anyway?
2. the file not be constructed?
3. should the repeating event be expanded up to single non-linked events and included?
These questions/problems will be addressed in version 2!
