What are these "Channel messages"? (In German, "Kanalnachrichten")

Occassionally I'm receiving a notifitcation titled as "Kanalnachricht". There are to numbers displayed.
To give you a picture I uploaded a picture in my blog:
http://wp.me/a44nIR-16
I have not yet scanned the source code to determine, why I receive those notifitcations.
I assume, it could be due to "Receive cell information" setting in the "phone settings" dialog (c.f. preferences app).
Soon I'll crosspost this issue in the German carrier's forum (i.e. in the Congstar forum) in German.

Some providers (e.g. O2 in Germany) send Cell Broadcasts on Channel 221.
They use it to post the coordinates of the base station so it can be determined for example, if the phone is in the home zone. So it seems to me that this could well be caused by the "receive cell information" setting.
I'm not sure about other providers - so if you use Congstar/T-Mobile, I'm not sure, if the above is valid.

  • What are these bootup messages I'm getting?

    Since I got an imac and onto Snow Leopard, every week or so, I see these three message upon bootup:
    http://tinypic.com/r/c3t39/6
    I kind of get the Wacom one -- but I did update driver and working fine so don't really understand it. and other two are totally beyond me, never heard of those brands.

    all these messages mean that you have various programs incompatible with snow leopard that installed those extensions. you have to either update those programs to SL compatible versions 9if available) or uninstall them. a quick google search indicates that the first extension was installed by something called
    Snapz Pro X. uninstall it. there should be an uninstaller provided. if you don't have it get it off the web and use the uninstaller which should be included with the download
    http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/11530&mode=feedback&vid=153683
    also, the second ones is Sundflower
    http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/14067
    again, use the provided uninstaller to uninstall it. the Wacom one you found yourself. it still says that you have an incompatible version so the same advice applies there.

  • What are these error messages on login?

    I just used migration assistant when I set up my new iMac 2.16 C2D from my old G4. My console log reveals the following error message on boot-up. I'm the only user on this mac:

    AFAICT, you have something in System Preferences->Accounts->Login Items that's calling an URL and the loginwindow can't find the volume because the file system (FS) can't resolve an alias. Remove anything in the list that you don't want by selecting it and hitting the minus sign. Restart and see if that clears things up.

  • What are these EM-related accounts and how do I unlock them?

    Hi,
    I created a database manually so it can not be managed through Enterprise Manager yet. When I run the database configuration assistant to configure it with Enterprise Manager, in the alert log file, i get the error message:
    oracle.sysman.emcp.exception.EMConfigException: Failed to unlock all EM-related accounts
    What are these EM-related accounts and how do I unlock them?
    Thanks, hope somebody tries to help me. Any leads will be appreciated.

    alter user dbsnmp unlock;
    It gets locked by some Critical Patch Updates.
    You can also configure em/dbconsole with emca.

  • Usr/sbin/pppd and usr/sbin/vpnd.  What are these?

    In performing a permissions repair, it listed usr/sbin/pppd and usr/sbin/vpnd as having been modified and unable to repair. I also performed a permission repair by booting from the Leopard disc, and got the same results.
    What are these, what do they do, and where are they? I couldn't locate them through a search.

    As Limnos says, don't worry about the messages.
    What are these, what do they do, and where are they? I couldn't locate them through a search.
    pppd and vpnd are daemons (faceless helper programs). pppd is the Point-to-Point Protocol Daemon, commonly used by dial-up modems and DSL and other kinds of network links. vpnd is for VPNs, or virtual private networks.
    Read the man pages for pppd and vpnd for more information (possibly even more than you wanted to know).
    And as Limnos says, they live in directories that don't get searched.

  • What are these processes and how do I prevent them?

    For many years, many have complained of external drives that are in standby/sleep spinning up for no apparent reason.  From the user's point of view this is unnecesssary, but to make matters worse, the system usually stops everything else while waiting for the drives.
    I have a Mac mini that I use as a home theater pc.  The media and backups are on a 5-bay enclosure (no RAID) attached by USB.  While watching a video, the unused drives will go into standby mode, which is good.  But then, with no user activity, they will spin up, freezing the video and everything else, which is not good.  As these are slow drives and spin up sequentially, this can take 10-20 seconds.  This may happen once or twice an hour, but sometimes more frequently.
    In looking into the causes, I have turned off time Machine (after putting these drives into the Privacy section for good measure).  I also prevented Spotlight and fsevents logging with the following:
    mdutil -i off /Volumes/<drive1> /Volumes/<drive2> . . .
    cd /Volumes/<drive1 and then repeat for other drives>
         rm -rf .fseventsd .Spotlight-*
         mkdir .fseventsd
         touch .fseventsd/no_log .metadata_never_index
    As far as I can tell this has worked to stop those processes from accessing the drives after they are mounted, but the problem persists.  To find out what else might be causing them to wake up:
    sudo fs_usage -w | grep -e Volumes/<drive1> -e /Volumes/<drive2> . . .
    and here is what I found last night (actually didn't use the -w last night, thus it is cut off):
    18:35:36  fsgetpath   /Volumes/XBMC         0.000026   SSDragHelper
    18:35:36  fsgetpath   /Volumes/Stuff        0.000006   SSDragHelper
    18:35:36  fsgetpath   /Volumes/DatOptic_3   0.000005   SSDragHelper
    18:35:36  fsgetpath   /Volumes/MacBackUp    0.000003   SSDragHelper
    18:36:15  fsgetpath   /Volumes/XBMC         0.000026   System Prefe
    18:36:15  fsgetpath   /Volumes/Stuff        0.000004   System Prefe
    18:36:15  fsgetpath   /Volumes/DatOptic_3   0.000003   System Prefe
    18:36:15  fsgetpath   /Volumes/MacBackUp    0.000003   System Prefe
    18:55:36  fsgetpath   /Volumes/XBMC         0.000034   GoogleSoftwa
    18:55:36  fsgetpath   /Volumes/Stuff        0.000004   GoogleSoftwa
    18:55:36  fsgetpath   /Volumes/DatOptic_3   0.000003   GoogleSoftwa
    18:55:36  fsgetpath   /Volumes/MacBackUp    0.000003   GoogleSoftwa
    After looking into the Google process, I was surprised to find the tentacles that Google puts into your system, and ripped every bit of it out that I could.  But I have no idea about what's going on with SSDragHelper and System Prefe (presumable System Preferences).  This must be OS X itself?  What are these processes doing, and is there any way to prevent them from accessing these disks in this way?

    Thanks for the reply Hen3ry.  Looks like you've done a lot of investigation.  For me, fs_usage entries accompanying spindown are not problems - I'm happy if the drives spin down.  My problem is the spinups.  But still, I don't think it is necessary to time the fs_usage entries with spinups.  If you grep for the drives you're concerned about, you will see any process that would potentially wake them up.
    Because my understanding is limited, I also am more concerned with the process/application that is accessing the drives than with the functions or commands they are sending.  And the values that are returned by those functions are way beyond what I can deal with.
    It's interesting that you've found a difference between your old and new drives.  Could you specify the enclosure and drives in each case?
    The StorageStatus app looks interesting; thanks for the tip.
    Here's a summary of what I've done so far, which I think is working.  I need a few more weeks to know for sure.
    How to prevent unwanted drive spin-ups
    If you are actively using the computer that the enclosure is attached to, nothing on God’s green earth will stop OS X from waking them up after some user action, even ones that seem to have nothing to do with the external drives.  But if you leave the computer alone while some application is running, like watching a movie or downloading a file, you have a fighting chance of coaxing OS X into leaving the uninvolved drives alone.
    If the drives are shared with any other computers over a network, eject them on those computers
    Otherwise, OS X (AppleFileServer) will poll them every 10 seconds.  This might not be bad if you want to just keep the drives spinning and the other computer stays awake.
    Third-party apps
    Make sure no apps are running that might access your drives.  Google runs some processes that do this (maybe I’m naïve, but I was so shocked I removed chrome and every other trace of Google from my Mac mini system). Another is iStat and any utility that monitors SMART status in the background.
    Don’t let Spotlight index or search the drives
    Spotlight is persistent, and it may be necessary to take a variety of steps to stop its various processes (mds, mdworker) from accessing the drives and waking them up.  In other words, kill it, drive a stake through its heart, then burn the body:
    In System Preferences > Spotlight, add the drives to the Privacy pane.
    Add a file called .metadata_never_index to the root of each drive (note the leading period).  The easiest way to do this is in Terminal
    touch /Volumes/<drive1>/.metadata_never_index
    Tell Spotlight AGAIN to keep away from the drive:
    mdutil -i off /Volumes/<drive1> /Volumes/<drive2> . . .
    Finally delete the Spotlight folder from the drive.
    rm -rf /Volumes/<drive1>.Spotlight-*
    Stop fseventsd from logging in the drive
    This is easy, just putting a no_log file in its folder.  I have found that rarely it still writes some files in there, but it doesn’t seem to do so when it causes problems, so . . .
              rm –rf /Volumes/<drive1>/.fseventsd/*
         touch /Volumes/<drive1>/.fseventsd/no_log
    Finder sidebar
    Some people say that if the drives show in the Sidebar of Finder windows, the Finder will be checking them.  I’m not sure. But to be safe, in Finder Preferences > Sidebar, uncheck External Disks.
    Just say no to Time Machine
    On the home theater mac itself, regular backups shouldn’t be needed.  You should be able to just turn Time Machine off.  However, it is probably sufficient to simply open System Preferences > Time Machine > Options and add the drives to the list of locations to exclude from backup.
    Second, local backups can be disabled with
    sudo tmutil disablelocal
    Look for other culprits
    If the problem persists, use fs_usage, which generates a real-time log of filesystem activity. There is so much going on that you need to use grep to restrict the output to entries that involve your drives. The entries that accompany your drive spin-ups are the ones you really want.
    sudo fs_usage -w | grep -e Volumes/<drive1> -e /Volumes/<drive2> . . .
    Now leave the keyboard and mouse alone, as many things you might do will cause the drives to be accessed. You probably want to find what does it when you’re not actively interacting with the computer.  It’s not really necessary to wait for your drives to sleep and see what wakes them.  Any activity you see would probably wake the drives if they were asleep.  When you see some activity and want to stop and examine, type Control-C to stop the output.  On the far right of each entry is the process or application that accessed the disks.

  • What are the different messages that OCOD may return for a web service requ

    Hi,
    Please give me feedback on the questions below, concerning the limitations of web service, and messages which may return.
    1) What are the different messages that OCOD may return for a web service request? I need all the messages of all the scenarios which OCOD can meet, for example:
    - If the file is rejected (Error message)
    - If the file is accepted (to clarify that the records have been created)
    - if the application is unavailable (maintenance or web service is down)
    2) How many request can we send simultaneously, and how many records we can make per second?
    Best Regard,

    Do you happen to have an Android?  If so and depending on what version there is a great data usage analyse tool built-in.  See if you can go to Settings -> Data Usage  from there you can pick a current or previous billing cycle and then use the vertical sliders to select a date range and it will filter the usage data per app to show you exactly what app(s) were using data during that time frame.

  • What are these called?

    Hi,
    I am trying to figure out what this element is?  Since I dont know what its actually called I have to provide a picture for my example.
    What are these elements called?  I have pointed to them in my image with the red arrows.  Im pretty sure the horizontal ones are  a "horizontal rule".  But what about the vertical ones?  And how does one implement them in a site?  http://i52.photobucket.com/albums/g29/FartyMcFly/Example.jpg
    Thanks for any answers in advance and I apologize if its something stupidly simple.
    Thanks

    How do I set the length of the border lines.
    I'm afraid there is no support for that in current CSS2 standards.
    You will be able to do it with CSS3 border-images.  But not for a few more years.
    http://www.css3.info/preview/border-image/
    In the meantime, you could put your border on a neighboring division -- see example below:

  • What are these dots on my iPhone 5 SIM tray?

    There are these odd white dots on my inside edge of the SIM tray in my iPhone 5. I don't recall seeing these dots in previous generations of iPhone 5.
    I found a similar thread on MacRumors about this, but there appears to be no answer.
    Here is a picture:
    For my iphone, I have an extra dot (so three dots and a line), so it is not exactly the same.
    What are these? Are these normal? Does your phone's SIM tray have those too? How many dots?

    How do you know about this? How many "configurations" are there  of these dots? This is the first time I had seen it in an iPhone (as compared to previous gens).
