ICal dead. Interface and menus permanently frozen.

Hey,
My iCal has remained inaccessible for the past few days. At launch, the interface is visible, but I doesn't do anything. When I select a menu item such as Preferences, nothing happens. If I select 'Back up iCal', a requester pops down for a moment then just as quickly disappears. I can't change From Day/Week/Month view on the interface, but can temporality from the menus. If another window obscures the App, that portion will lose its border shading.
iCal's basically completely useless. A real drag since I rely on iCal for so much of my business (I'm a film director) and I'm kinda screwed right now. Any help would be greatly appreciated, including recommendations for switching to a different and more stable calendar app.
Some specs:
Running iCal on both by Intel MacBook and Dual PowerPC G5 tower. Using latest version of Leopard.
Thanks in advance,
meni

tblum,
Quit iCal, and try removing the com.apple.iCal.plist file from your Macintosh HD/Users/yourusername/Library/Preferences Folder.
Use Finder>Go>Depress the "Option" key>Library>Preferences. Drag the .plist file to your desktop, log out/in or restart and check iCal for functionality.

  • OS7 browser problems on Torch 9810 (incl. dead touchscreen and migrating cursor)

    The browser on the Torch 9810 has two interrelated problems. On certain mobile sites -- The New York Times in particular -- one will suddenly be unable to use the touchscreen to tap open links and the cursor will remain constantly visible, slowly migrating upwards without any input from the trackpad. This usually happens right after the first time one opens a link on the sites in question. 
    Also, certain sites -- again, the NY TImes, and also ESPN -- display what seems to be generic mobile sites much different from the versions that one sees on, e.g., the 9800. I imagine that this is because the sites do not recognize the 9810 browser's user agent string.
    The first problem with the dead touchscreen and migrating cursor seems to be OS related, while the second one, I would guess, would seem to require mobile web site adminstrators or the like being made aware of the new user agent string.
    I have the 9810 on AT&T. An update from the shipping OS (7.0.0.261) to the most recent OS I'm aware of (7.0.0.336) did nothing to resolve the first problem. 
    I'm hopeful that RIM will promptly address these problems.

    Thanks for your response. I have already written the NY Times webmaster re: the user agent string. That site had a similar, but less annoying problem when the 9800 came out -- it recognized the 9800 as an iPhone. Presumably, they will address it. (I would not presume to tell the New York Times that it needs to be "more professional," however, unless you would presume to tell Le Monde that it needs to be "more professional." )
    I'm not at all sure, though, that the sudden lack of touchscreen response and permanent/drifting cursor problem that occurs after clicking on a link is the website's fault. In all cases, the generic mobile website is simply the same version that would be encountered if one visited the site on a dumbphone. A smartphone should not react this way when being dumped over to the "dumbphone" site. 
    While it may be the website's fault for not being able to adequately handle a new user agent string, and consequently dumping one over to the dumbphone site version, I would think it is RIM's fault for not designing the browser so that it would not react this way on such a dumbphone site. 

  • Calendar sync between iCal, Outlook 2011 and 2010 and iCloud

    All,
    I'm having trouble syncing calendars on my devices and I haven't been able to find a workable solution yet. I know this topic has been covered extensively, but I haven't found anything that works.
    I want to be able to sync my calendars (email works just fine) between three devices: A MBP (Mountain Lion) running Outlook 2011, iPhone 4S (Calendar App) and a desktop (Win8) with Outlook 2010.
    Currently, I have no problem syncing the desktop with my iPhone (using iCloud) and these events sync into iCal on the MBP. Outlook 2011 on the MBP syncs into iCal using Sync Services to the "On My Mac" calendar. All of my previous calendar entries are single events in the iPhone, Outlook 2010 and Outlook 2011, but show up as duplicates in iCal (one entry is in the iCloud calendar, and other is in the On My Mac calendar). Since I don't use iCal as my "working" calendar program on my MBP, the duplicates are fine if it works as an interface between iCloud and On My Mac.
    For any new calendar items, however, I must obviously select which calendar they'll appear in. As suspected, if I select iCloud, the items all sync to iCal, Outlook 2010 and my iPhone, but not Outlook 2011; conversely, creating events in Outlook 2011 syncs via On My Mac to iCal, but not the devices as using iCloud.
    It seems to me that if a rule could be made in iCal which duplicated any event from On My Mac into iCloud, and another rule which duplicated iCloud events into On My Mac, there would be complete syncing across the programs, with obvious duplications of events in iCal (which is fine by me). I'm not a programmer and I have no idea how to, or even if, this can be done.
    Has anyone else found a way to make this work, or have any other solutions?
    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Outlook 2011 is not compatible with iCloud, it won't work and your 'workaround' may affect iCloud clients on the same account.
    Don't use 2011.

  • Nokia's user interface and software A terrible e...

    (hope this is in the right section, here goes)
    I got my E63 about a month ago. I thought it only fair to list my grievances with the phone so far, because I am really close to selling it and buying something else, and I think Nokia deserves to know the reasons why, and will hopefully improve in the future.
    I will start off with what I love about the phone, because I do in fact, really like it. The slim size, excellent keyboard, great connectivity like 3G and Wi-fi, and the reasonable battery life, make it a great phone, but its in the user interface, and actual usage of the phone, where things really start to fall flat.
    The user interface is very disorganized and difficult.
    Why is everything so hard to find and use? For example, if I want to change the applications that appear on my home screen, I need to navigate the following directory tree:
    Menu > Tools > Settings > General > Personalisation > Mode Settings > Home Screen Applications > Application Shortcuts > Shortcut 1
    and then, when I finally get to the list, the items arent even in any order!
    You must be joking, what a horrible menu! Its insane. As a user, I feel like its a terrible experience.
    But thats not all. Why are there 2 notes applications on my phone? There's notes, and active notes. Why does Nokia OVI store exist twice, once in the main menu, and once under installations? Why do I have Contacts, and OVI contacts on my phone? Why can't my phone have just one app that works well, instead of 2 that differ slightly.
    Why is email setup in the installations menu? Why isn't it under email, where mailboxes get set up? Its just sitting there cluttering up Installations, when its something you only use once or twice.
    Not to mention the fact that the configuration settings are all over the place, i.e. there is an Email Key setting in Menu > Tools > Settings > General. Its all on its own, not near anything. Why isn't it in the same menu where the other shortcut keys get set? Or even in the email app settings?
    I am not naive, I know that the E63 is on the cheaper end of the scale, so I can't expect it to be the fastest phone in the world, but scrolling through my email in HTML mode is so horribly slow, and the view tends to jump from left to right on some emails, I hardly even use the phone to check my email anymore, which is sad because that is the reason I chose the E63.( for the nice keypad and email syncing)
    These are just SOME of the things that I have noticed. So please Nokia, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE! Spend some of your R&D money on user interface and user experience!
    If there is anything you take away from this letter, let it be this:
    Doing anything on the phone just feels like hard work, it makes me not want to use the phone.
    Your phones should be simple and easy to use, even without the mass of Help files that appear in a lot of the menus.
    I know, some people may say that if I want a better experience, I should be willing to buy a more expensive phone. Well, I can say that if I do spend more money on a phone, the chance is very slim that it will be a Nokia.
    Really, I am not being nasty, just trying to be honest. I know that Nokia is run by human beings like myself, so I tried to be polite, and I dont intend to hurt anyones feelings.
    I am quite willing to answer any questions you may have. Its a bit of a pipe dream, but I would love to see Nokia release an entirely new version of the phone software, with everything re-organized and re-done. The sad truth is that will probably never happen, and I will end up swopping my E63 for something that is easy and pleasant to use.
    So please, let me know if there is anything I can do to change the situation, or help you guys in making this better for everyone.

    "If your not used to symbian you'll learn it quick enough, compared to android it's childsplay."
    On the contrary, Ive been using Nokia phones for the last 8 years, and for the last 2 years Nokia exclusively, and the UI has just got worse.
    The fact that "you'll learn it" is of no comfort. Why should I have to spend hours learning how to use a cellphone? Whenever I want to do something I havent done before, I have to spend time digging through obscure menu options. That is absurd.
    "What phone do you have in mind to replace the E63,  that would help us users alot more then telling us what is wrong with your phone.  Although over all I like my e63."
    I don't have any specific phone in mind, Im just going to ask and look around until I find something with an operating system that is organised in a logical manner, and that allows me to access and read my email quickly and easily.
    I put this here hoping that other users would come forward with UI related things that they were unhappy about,  and then Nokia would take notice. I could easily have just gone out and changed phones, but I chose to do something different.

  • The difference between IEEE802.1Q Native VLAN sub-interface and Physical interface?

    Hello
    I think the following topologies are supported for Cisco Routers
    And the Physical interface also can be using as Native VLAN interface right? 
    Topology 1.
     R1 Gi0.1 ------ IEEE802.1Q Tunneling  L2SW ------ Gi0 R2
    R1 - configuration
    interface GigabitEthernet0.1
     encapsulation dot1Q 1 native
     ip address 10.0.0.1 255.255.255.0
    Topology 2.
    R1 Gi0 ------ IEEE802.1Q Tunneling L2SW ------ Gi0 R2
    interface GigabitEthernet0
    ip address 10.0.0.1 255.255.255.0
     And is it ok to use the physical interface and sub-interface with dynamic routing such as EIGRP or OSPF etc?
    R1 Gi 0 ---- Point to Multipoint EIGRP or OSPF ---- Gi0 R2 / R3 
          Gi 0.20--- Point to Point EIGRP or OSPF --- Gi0.10 R4  (same VLAN-ID) 
    R1 - configuration
    interface GigabitEthernet0
     ip address 10.0.0.1 255.255.255.0
    interface GigabitEthernet8.20
     encapsulation dot1Q 20
     ip address 20.0.0.1 255.255.255.0
    Any information is very appreciated. but if there is any CCO document please let me know.
    Thank you very much and regards,

    Hello,
    The diagram is helpful.
    If I am getting you correctly, you have three routers interconnected by a switch, and you want them to operate in a hub-and-spoke fashion even though the switch is capable of allowing direct communication between any of these routers.
    Your first scenario is concerned with all three routers being in the same VLAN, and by using neighbor commands, you force these routers to establish targeted EIGRP adjacencies R1-R2 and R1-R3, with R1 being the hub.
    Your second scenario is concerned with creating one VLAN per spoke, having subinterfaces for each spoke VLAN created on R1 as the router, and putting each spoke just in its own VLAN.
    Your scenarios are not really concerned with the concept of native VLAN or the way it is configured, to be honest. Whether you use a native VLAN in either of your scenarios, or whether you configure the native VLAN on a subinterface or on the physical interface makes no difference. There is simply no difference to using or not using a native VLAN in any of your scenarios, and there is no difference to the native VLAN configuration being placed on a physical interface or a subinterface. It's as plain as that. Both your scenarios will work.
    My personal opinion, though, is that forcing routers on a broadcast multi-access segment such as Ethernet to operate in a hub-and-spoke fashion is somewhat artificial. Why would you want to do this? Both scenarios have drawbacks: in the first scenario, you need to add a neighbor statement for each spoke to the hub, limiting the scalability. In the second scenario, you waste VLANs and IP subnets if there are many spokes. The primary question is, though: why would you want an Ethernet segment to operate as a hub-and-spoke network? Sure, these things are done but they are motivated by specific needs so I would like to know if you have any.
    Even if you needed your network to operate in a hub-and-spoke mode, there are more efficient means of achieving that: Cisco switches support so-called protected ports that are prevented from talking to each other. By configuring the switch ports to spokes as protected, you will prevent the spokes from seeing each other. You would not need, then, to configure static neighbors in EIGRP, or to waste VLANs for individual spokes. What you would need to do would be deactivating the split horizon on R1's interface, and using the ip next-hop-self eigrp command on R1 to tweak the next hop information to point to R1 so that the spokes do not attempt to route packets to each other directly but rather route them over R1.
    I do not believe I have seen any special CCO documents regarding the use of physical interfaces or subinterfaces for native VLAN or for your scenarios.
    Best regards,
    Peter

  • What is the diffrence between My Runnable Interface and Java Runnable

    Hi folks
    all we know that interfaces in java just a decleration for methods and variables.
    so my Question is why when i create an interface its name is "Runnable" and i declared a method called "run" inside it.then when i implements this interface with any class don't do the thread operation but when i implement the java.lang.Runnable the thread is going fine.
    so what is the diffrence between My Runnable Interface and Java Runnable?

    thnxClasses and interfaces are not identified by just their "name", like Runnable. The actual "name" the compiler uses is java.lang.Runnable. So even if you duplicate the Runnable interface in your own package, it's not the same as far as the compiler is concerned, because it's in a different package.
    Try importing both java.util.* and java.awt.* (which both have a class or interface named List), and then try to compile List myList = new ArrayList();

  • My main pc died. How do I get my complete library on the replacement pc.  Apple says I have authorized the limit of five. I only recall doing so on the dead pc and an IPAD.  My IPAD suggests that I am on the cloud but I don't recall setting that up.

    My old PC with my Itunes library died.  I have attempted to authorize it's replacement but the store tells me I have reached my limit of five.  I don't recall doing this so my guess is that and old dead Ipod as well as old dead PC's could be deauthorized ONLY and I would be good.  As I read the Itunes store options it appears I can only deauthorize all five.  I am afraid I will loose all my library; I'm not shure I have an up to date backup with Itunes I am reluctant to take that step.
    I can take the hard drive out of the dead computer and fix so that I can restore from an up to date library.  I have never done this before and am scared I might erase my best option.  I also have a major portion of my library on a NANO which replaced the dead IPOD which maybe can be used to restore the replacement PC.
    I don't recall setting up Icloud and vaguely recall backing up to itunes but can't confirm that my library is completely backed up.  Itunes tells me that my Ipad and a PC are authorized for Icloud but I don't recall setting that up.  I can assume that the PC that is Icloud authorized is the one that died.  If I have to deauthorize all, will I errase my library?  If not will I have to restore my nano and Ipad and the replacement PC? How can I confirm that my library is backed up/in the cloud?
    My Ipad shows cloud icons along whith what appears to be my library.
    Given this info, what is my best option to restore my complete former Itunes library to my PC. 
    Thank

    Many thanks lllaass,
    The Touch Copy third party software for PC's is the way to go it seems and although the demo is free, if you have over 100 songs then it costs £15 to buy the software which seems not a lot to pay for peace of mind. and restoring your iTunes library back to how it was.

  • Dead lock and Blocking Lock

    I would like to understand what is major difference between Dead Locks and Blocking Locks in Oracle. If someone could explain or point me to good web Link I would really appreciate
    Thanks.

    Tony's advise is very good.
    In simple terms a blocking lock is a lock being held by one session that is preventing another session from performing an DML operation on the same data until the holding session commits or rollbacks.
    A deadlock is a situation where two or more sessions lock data in such a manner as each session is waiting on a resource held by another session so that none of the session can complete their unit of work. That is session A locks row 1 then session B locks row 2 followed by session A attempts to lock row 2 while session B now attemps to lock row 1. Neither session A or B will ever be able to complete thier transaction releasing the locks and allowing waiting sessions to process since each session is waiting on a resource that the other session has while holding a resource the other session needs. In other words a deadlock. Oracle detects deadlocks and kills one of the sessions freeing resources.

  • Can I sync a single iCal calendar only and not all my calendars?

    I use iCal at work and at home. I have two calendars: work and family. I use my .Mac account to sync my two calendars between my home computer and work computer. While at work today I subscribed to several of my employees' iCal calendars so that we could coordinate our schedules. However, now those employee calendars are being sync'd to my home iCal.
    Is there a way to continue using my .Mac account to sync my home and work calendars but not those of my employees??? Thanks in advance!
    Joe

    Thanks for the thought. I just tried that and when I select .Mac in iSync it tells me I no longer use iSync to sync and it opens the .Mac preferences window. The .Mac preferences do not seem to allow specific calendars - just check whether you want "calendars" to sync....
    Is there another way?

  • Microsoft Exchange Categories in iCal, Address Book and Mail

    I work in a Microsoft environment with my MacBook Pro and would like to use iCal, Address Book and Mail as my default applications rather than Microsoft Oulook 2011, however, there is not support for the Microsoft Exchange Categories to be replicated into the various Apple applications. This results in my address book not to differentiate any longer from my contact categories stored on the Exchange server, nor my calendar. Categories can be created in iCal and other Apple applications but it then requires for the event or contact to be duplication "On my Mac" which makes me loose my synchronization with other systems. Any idea about to fix that?

    Same issue here. I would love to migrate to iCal but the lack of support for categories is a limiting factor. Same applies to Contacts.

    my ipad won"t turn off. there is a small window with an email text in it and it appears frozen on the screen. How can i turn the ipad off?

    Try a reset: Simultaneously hold down the Home and On buttons until the device shuts down. Ignore the off slider if it appears. Once shut down is complete, if it doesn't restart on it own, turn the device back on using the On button. In some cases it also helps to double click the Home button and close all apps BEFORE doing the reset.

    - iOS: Not responding or does not turn on
    - If not successful and you can't fully turn the iPod fully off, let the battery fully drain. After charging for an least an hour try the above again.
    - If still not successful that indicates a hardware problem and an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store is in order.
