Reinstalling your own operating system is kind of like a standard task nowadays if you are using your computer(s) extensively. No matter whether you are using a Mac or a PC, your operating system is kind of like “aging” everyday…getting slower and slower until the point you can’t stand it anymore and decide to do a reinstall.

Also…sometimes it takes less time to solve a problem by reinstalling the system rather than taking your time to find the solution itself…although you won’t learn much…but at least you will get the job out of the way.

Reinstalling Windows should be easy because most people are PC users; when you have a problem regarding your installation, it shouldn’t be too difficult to find someone to help you…but what if you are using a Mac? (more…)

When are you NEW to computers, no matter its a PC / a Mac, it would be great if someone is sitting beside you and show you around on your new computer.

The Dictionary Application (Dict App for short) is really helpful at times when you are reading an eBook / web page. I even define my own shortcut key so that when I high light a word and press “Control + Command + A”, the dictionary app will come up straight away and show me the meaning of the word that I’ve high lighted.

But there is just one little problem…the Dict App only comes with a few built-in dictionaries…for instance if I want to know the Chinese meaning of a particular word, I’ll need to search online / use something else. It would be great if I can add more dictionaries and make it the “one stop” app that I’ll ever need.

Well, it turns out that with the help of DictUnifier, you can add all kinds of dictionaries to the built-in Dictionary Application in Leopard. Take a look of my list 😉 (I only use a handful of the dictionaries, others are for my friends) (more…)

Is this a joke? All you have to do is to connect the USB cable to your Mac and that’s it…right?

Well, not quite unless your external hard drive is pre-formatted as Mac OS Extended / FAT32. Since most external hard drives are pre-formatted as NTFS; Mac OS X can only read data from the hard drive; but it can’t write anything to it (unless you install other 3rd party software. I didn’t know this until I got an external hard drive a few months ago, and my friends have been asking me the same questions lately, so I thought it might be a good idea to put it on my blog so that others who got the same situation can solve the problem without calling their friends / technicians 😀
