I have a Fiji Xerox Docucentre II C4300 and here’s how I set it up to scan via FTP to OSX Lion. Continue reading 〉
Ok the instructions that come with the Garmin forerunner are completely wrong, the CD is useless (it has the manual but no software) and the Garmin support website is not much help either. There are all sorts of discussions on the Garmin site for Mac users about ‘it does work with Lion’, ‘it doesn’t work with Lion’ and so on. At one point it even had me downloading a PC .exe file!
The answer is that it does work very well with OSX but there are two separate pieces of software that need to be installed. Continue reading 〉
If you have ever designed a colour document on your computer and then printed it out on your inkjet or laser printer you may have noticed that the colours come out slightly different. This is partly to do with the fact that printing with ink on a piece of paper is a different process to creating colour on a computer monitor, but it is possible to calibrate your monitor so that the colours match up as closely as they can. This article gives you some tips on basic monitor colour calibration.
There appears to be a compatibility issue with Mac OSX lion and lots of printers. (Talked about here on the apple support pages) The printer may or may not work properly, but you will get an error that says “The optical photoconductor needs to be replaced.”
When I try to print on my new Fuji Xerox document C4350 last week I got an error saying “The optical photoconductor needs to be replaced.” and the printer would not even print. If you play around with a different print setting (e.g. USB, Jetdirect, LPD, IPP) you may be able to get the printer working (still with the error!) till Apple repairs the problem. Here’s how I got my Xerox printer working. Continue reading 〉
In this post I posted some drivers for the Samsung D900 mobile phone. A lot of people contacted me asking how I wrote them. Well it was a bit of a fudge really. All I did was grab the Samsung D900i phone driver, and change every occurrence of D900i to D900!

There was a knock on the door at 10 past 8 this morning – it was the Snow Leopard delivery man. I live in Dubbo, NSW, 6 hours drive from Sydney. Snow Leopard arrived on my doorstep at 10 past 8! I can’t believe Apple’s efficiency!

O dear, this is a tragic topic. Nevertheless, I just installed Windows XP on my Intel Macintosh and it was easy! Windows XP set me back $115, but innotek VirtualBox, the program that let me run windows, was free. It’s pretty fast – it takes about 20 seconds to start Windows (that’s faster than my OSX boots!) and about 6 seconds to turn it off. Continue reading 〉
