RE: iOS 8: Using "Send Last Location"

Hey wab95, Tell your wife that she sounds like a kindred spirit, so I raise my iPhone to her! Now where did I leave that thing… wink —Melissa

RE: Terminal: Comparing Folders with "diff"

Hey JasperR! That is an excellent workflow! Thanks for sharing it with me. You rock! "PS - I haven’t heard Momentary Lapse of Reason since the late 1980s - can it really be that long ago?!" Sadly, all of the good music was at least that long ago. wink —Melissa

RE: Using AirDrop with OS X Yosemite and iOS

"In that sense, elegant design is not unlike a delivered joke; if you have to explain it, then it fails." wab95, you need to have that printed on a t-shirt. grin Brilliant comment!

RE: Using AirDrop with OS X Yosemite and iOS

Hey wab95! Thanks for the comment. I've used AirDrop that way, too, but not very often. I wonder if most iOS folks are even using it—ever? As far as iTunes goes, I'm exaggerating my hatred a teensy bit for effect, but I just really don't like the direction the program is going. Its controls are starting to seem counterintuitive to me now, so I find it frustrating. But you didn't ask me, so I don't know why I'm going on about it. wink —Melissa

If it were up to me, you'd get a top-of-the-line [whatever machine you want], Lee. grin

RE: Terminal: Comparing Folders with "diff"

Hey JasperR, I'm not personally aware of how to do that with diff (although there may be a way to do so, and hopefully someone with more knowledge than I can chime in); however, I use a nifty little utility called Print Window Advanced (http://www.searchwaresolutions.com) when I need to do some fancy tweaking to print out a proper list of filenames with subfolders and sub-subfolders. For example, here's a list I did of my music folder, and it would be easy to see everything that fell within the same artist's name: http://i.imgur.com/fuLCVYc.png I really like Print Window Advanced, but you…

RE: 3 Tips to Make 1Password Even More Powerful

Hey wab95! The only time I've had a Dropbox syncing issue was right after iOS 8 came out, but since the last 1Password update, I'm back to smooth sailing again. Thank goodness! So you're right, the latest versions are best if your devices support that, for sure. —Melissa

RE: 3 Tips to Make 1Password Even More Powerful

Hey there 2old4fun (love the name!), For me, the biggest reason I use 1Password is that it works seamlessly wherever I am—on the Mac or on my iPhone, in Safari or Chrome or Firefox—and that I can even access my database if every one of my devices gets destroyed, as I store it in Dropbox for syncing purposes. Thus far, I've found iCloud Keychain to be somewhat clunky. Another aspect of 1Password that I really enjoy is the ability to add in additional private information all in one place. I have tons and tons of Secure Notes in my database…

RE: 3 Tips to Make 1Password Even More Powerful

Hey schwager, As long as you're running one of those recent versions of the software, it's in the sidebar along the left-hand side. You may have to hover over the words "Security Audit" and click "Show" to reveal it. Sorry that wasn't clear! —Melissa

RE: 3 Tips to Make 1Password Even More Powerful

You're welcome, Ron! And you totally should. 1Password makes my life better and more organized pretty much every day! —Melissa
