No updates this weekend... Site News
After adding a substantial number of hints the past five weekends in a row (since Jaguar's release), this weekend will be a quiet one on As an aside, the site has now published over 350 hints just since Jaguar shipped; it's been quite a busy month!

Have a nice weekend, enjoy today's hints (I especially like the multiple mailbox trick in, and I'll be back with a new set of hints (and a pick of the week, of course) on Monday morning.

You deserve more than a week-end off.

I gather you have a day job and can't imagine how you keep this site up. But thanks for doing it.

Well, now I have tried to register here several times with no luck, to answer a question in the forums. What's the matter with your login? My referrer is Donald Duck!
Someone was wondering, why they were running out of space. My question to them is: Are you also running Chimera? In the ~/Library/Application Support/Chimera and deeper down you'll find Chimeras cache folder. Mine had inflated to several hundred MB and was growing merrily…
This is both with the default Chimera and the nightly builds. Something's rotten in the state of Denmark.

Forums vs. main site...
Authored by: robg on Sep 27, '02 06:04:31PM
Until I get the Geeklog update done, the forum site and the main site do not share a database. Once the main site is upgraded, I'm going to hire someone to write a combined registration page to make sure that a registration on one site is a registration on both sites.

Until then, though, you'll have to pop over to and create an account there in order to post.

Well-Deserved Break — Kudos to robg

I'm sure I speak for a lot of people. I wanted to publicly express my appreciation for the time, effort and obvious love you pour into this site. The October issue of MacAddict puts MacOSXHints at the top of the list of essential online resources for Macficcionados, and I couldn't agree more; this is the first place I check in the morning, especially since the Jaguar hints started flooding in. Thanks a lot robg, now go chill for a while :-)

Robg rocks!!! This is the ONE site I recommend to anyone and everyone I talk to about OS X.

Great job, Rob! Just make sure you take as much time off as you need to remain healthy and happy!

Take care, John-o

The most important hint...

"All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy."

Similarly, all work and no play burns out guys like Rob who so obviously pour their hearts into efforts like this site. I'm delighted every time I see these guys knock off their webwork for a little while.
