Pleased to see that Skype is now working properly :-)

Having to run it from the disk image every time was getting a bit of a pain!


Go Hawks!

My Mac Mini was a clean install - it balked on the auto updater, I had to download the full 110MB update and that worked fine.

I notice that the ConceptDraw installation (kinda like Visio for the Mac) fails to run - it's a PowerPC based installer (no I haven't told the manufactuer yet)

Everything seems to be working AOK - although so far I'm only using Office, Safari, Remote desktop and a few others.  I still have to try out my USB to serial device and get Photoshop (CS2 only at this stage, saving some $ for CS3) back running on it.

My MacBook was an upgrade install and I seem to have all sorts of 'stability' issues with sleeping (I only reboot when absolutely necessary) - I also dial up a lot through 3G on my phone via bluetooth - that seems to have become extremely hit and miss ...

At some stage, I'll be doing a clean reinstall of the MacBook...
