Airport Menu (Leopard)

Here's the Mac OS X Leopard version of the Airport menu shown in the previous post:

The lock icons are presumably quite useful for some people, although I only ever connect to either my home or office network so I never really even look at the menu.

Wireless networks

I can see loads of WiFi routers from my house these days. A couple of years ago, mine was the only one.

Oh yes, this post is also a test of the new Skitch Beta.

update_prebinding

Posted by Jon Evans 01/06/2007 at 01h06

My MacBook has been getting slower and slower lately, so today I started to investigate what the cause might be. I'd noticed a while ago that a message had started appearing in system.log:

update_prebinding: error: dependent dylib is not prebound
update_prebinding: error 256 running update_prebinding_core

You can run update_prebinding from the shell but you don't get any extra insight into the problem because the error message is exactly the same.

Alcoa factory fire

Photos of the Alcoa factory fire which I emailed to the Banbury Guardian have been published on their website, along with extracts from the email I sent them.

Higher resolution pictures than the ones they published are after the jump.
