MacFixItis Ted Landau and Complete Mac Seminaris are working together to provide a series of seminars on Mac OS X. The seminars are being named after Mr. Landauis book, Mac OS X Disaster Relief, which conveniently makes the seminars called the "Mac OS X Disaster Relief Seminar." The seminars are two day events, and include detailed information on fixing Mac OS X. From the seminar Web page:
With Mac OS X, everyone is a beginner: Whether you are a first-time iMac owner or a longtime Apple veteran, working with Mac OS X is a whole-new experience. But the new Mac OS doesnit mean that you can set aside your troubleshooting skills--or that you donit have to learn new ones. From installing Appleis new operating system to getting network access, Mac OS X has new ways of doing things--and new ways for things to go south. Where do you turn when things stop working?
For tried-and-true Mac OS troubleshooting techniques, there is no more respected authority than Ted Landau. His MacFixIt Web site is the primary first-aid station for Mac users in trouble, and his best-selling Sad Macs, Bombs, and Other Disasters (now in its fourth edition) is the gold standard for solving Mac OS 9 problems. Now he uses his troubleshooting know-how with Appleis revolutionary operating system, Mac OS X.
