I'm running VirtualBox on Sierra with a Windows 7 Guest VM. How can I increase the space available to the VM? I started with 20GB but I realise now it wasn't nearly enough.

I run Sierra unsupported on a late 2009 Mac Mini and have had no problems with it until now after trying to uninstall and re-install (unsuccessfully) Skype. The Finder is not working properly. I can't open the Finder window from the Dock nor will Finder - Go work on the menu bar. But Finder - File - New Finder Window does work and I can access Apps from there successully and also from the Dock. Repeated rebooting doesn't work except occasionally for a short time and I've even re-installed Sierra without changing anything. I assume the re-install happened but didn't …

Hello I am trying to find an ADB (male) to USB (female) adapter for my G3 Wallstreet Powermac Laptop. I would like to be able to connect a USB jumpdrive to the computer via the ADB port on the back. If anyone can please recommend a seller of vintage type parts or if anyone has an old adapter lying around that you might want to sell, I would appreciate hearing from you. Thanks very much.

I just upgraded the software to OS X Sierra and I use a multi usb port for connecting my mouse since there are just two usb port and the harddisk has to be plugged in directly. The light appears at the bottom of the mouse which means that the power is reaching the mouse but the mouse isnt detecting. Can anyone tell me what I should do to get my mouse working and it works fine on pc.

I run El Capitan but had the same problem with prior operating systems. I can't use the single quote key to type a straight quote mark in the apps that I want, in particular an abc notation app called EasyABC. Having just stated that I notice the word can't does that a straight quote!!! In EasyABC there is no Substitutions menu so I don't know what to do.

It's hard for me to admit it but there are things, ten things to be exact, that I really hate about Linux. Sometimes I think it's just me but I do see other people stating a few of these in the forums so I'm at least not alone with some of these issues. These are in no particular order and they aren't just rants; they're legitimate problems and issues that I find annoying, destroying or cloying. Feel free to add your own to the list in the Comments section. [B]1. Too Many Good Distros[/B] - I hate the fact that …

I'm working on a personal movie database project to help keep track of my movie collection, but I'm having issues and I was wondering if it was even possible and if so how to go about doing this in the first place. I want a way to get an overall list of everything. I have figured out how to get a list of the movies with their genres and a list of movies with their formats, but I want to combine the two. My tables: Movies: Code, Title, Alt_Title, Type, Plot, Num_Eps, Duration, Catagory, Image Code = PK Formats: Code, …

This may seem absurd at first but please read on. Recently I've heard that a lot of people are installing Mac on standard machines made for Windows - either using hardware Virtualization or using some kind of tweak with their BIOS. I also heard that Apple recently switched their working Archetecture to Intel processor making it easy to install their OS X on Windows machines. Earlier last month a friend of mine also tried installing OS X on his Windows machine. No, he did not use VMWare or any emulator, he actually installed in on his HDD with a bootloader …

My Mac address book syncs itself with my iPhone. Somehow (I think through Microsoft Entourage??) it silently added contacts to the address book for everyone I sent/received an email to/from. I now have thousands of contacts that have an email address only with no phone number, and I don't want these to be in my address book. How can I clean out my address book by removing every contact without a phone number?? When I go into the address book and select Export, it only gives me the option of downloading a .abbu package which represents an archive file ... …

Ive made a java program to do automated tasks for a game. It takes screen shots with java.robot every 250 milliseconds. The program is working great, but it will always crash at around the 30min mark Im running this program on my mac, and this is the crash report that I get. I believe the plugin is what is crashes. I watched how much memory the program took up on Activity moniter and it never used more than 125mb of real memory.

Hi, I want to use Lazarus on my mac, and I went through the steps, installed the three packages at http://sourceforge.net/projects/lazarus/files/Lazarus%20Mac%20OS%20X%20i386/Lazarus%201.2.6/ . I also typed xcode-select --install into my terminal, which installed some necessary command line tools. The 'Configure Lazarus IDE' has recognised the compiler, FPC sources, and 'make', but says that the GNU debugger cannot be found, at /usr/bin/gdb. If I understood the things I read while googling correctly, XCode has switched to LLDB, and it was Apple itself that supplied gdb for Mac. Where can I get a debugger for Pascal on Mac? Thanks

Microsoft is just about over the three day hump that has been their timid Windows 8 release, and amid the [cries of anger](http://www.daniweb.com/hardware-and-software/microsoft-windows/windows-vista-and-windows-7-8/news/438107/windows-8-launch-three-year-user-backlash-predicted) over die-hard user, it's apparent Microsoft's move toward Windows 8 was one for the long term, not the short time. ![Win8-logo1](/attachments/small/3/Win8-logo1.jpg "align-left") While some jump to call the move a failure, it's important to note this is not a Microsoft failure, and instead a change in direction. Microsoft has indeed sold failed products before, ie. Vista and Windows Me, and Windows 8 is not one of those products. While it may be lacking Media Center in an …

Attached are two images that I took on a Windows 7 machine. They are portions of a document that was just opened in Adobe Reader X (Version 10.1.9). One image is of a yellow ribbon across the top of the document, warning about certain data security risks. The other image shows the options available when the "Options" box is selected. If I select "Trust this document one time only", several fields of the PDF are auto-populated. However, when I open the same document on a MacBook Pro (Mac OS X Version 10.6.8, Adobe Reader XI Version 11.0.6), the yellow band …

Web.py outputs 0.0.0.0:8080. On windows, localhost and 0.0.0.0 work. But on mavericks, localhost doesn't work! 0.0.0.0 works, though. Can someone explain what 0.0.0.0 is? Why does web.py say you can enter a ip and port in command line and it will run there? (You can't run on someone else's ip,can you?)
