Even though I am  fairly good with audio and computers I have gone back to having a regular phone line simply because even at best quality VOIP  calls on a broadband connection don’t match the quality of a land-line phone or even a mobile phone, at least in Australia.

This hint is not strictly Macintosh, but it’s so good I have to write it up. Did you know you can get what they call a Continuous inking system (CIS) for most big name inkjet printers?

I also did a version for the Optus D736 here and it seemed to work.  Here’s how I did it. Continue reading ⟩

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!

The Optus D736 I think is a Bird D736.

1. Download and run this driver from here.
2. Put a memory card in the phone.
3. Plug in the phone and post a comment here if it works, or if you have to change some settings on the phone. (I have not tested on the bird phone).
