Minimal Mac



Minimal Mac, originally uploaded by ABMann.

Fun with my desktop.
I did funny things to allow edit access to system icons, Finder, Trash and a few others are being jerks.

Thus, the alias icons rather than an actual dock on the bottom of the screen. I keep single clicking them anyway. :)

YAY FOR EASY SUNDAYS.

Could you not get access via CandyBar? It used to be temperamental in Leopard, but it's been working pretty reliably since upgrading to SL.

I'm just cheap! I'd rather mess with permissions in system folders. ;)

I'm just going to say that among the people we laugh at most at work are the customers who come in and complain about their Macs functionality when they've dicked around in the system folders.

Help! I got over my head!

A year or two ago, I had some issues with permissions and a few wacky things I was doing at the time. In process of fixing them, I accidentally changed the administrator to have no access to my hard drive. It kept stalling when I tried to boot. it was kind of funny, but I was able to fxi it pretty quickly because I planned for just such a silly thing.

Also: My Mac is old. Can you fix it for me?

See, that's why a heart is appended. You can fix your stuff! It's not like I haven't done the same. I deleted all the files that let my computer know it has an airport card, because I was learning how to screw around in the command line.

I love it when people seem confused that their five year old computer is obsolete, and no, I can't get parts for it anymore.
