  1. I want to install a home based server to hold my backups. I have discounted using a paid service like Dropbox or several other similar cloud services, because they are too expensive (example: Dropbox = 1$/GB per year.) I currently have 2x2TB external HDDs that I alternate for my Mac using Time Machine and then I keep all my media files on another 2TB external HDD backup to the last 2TB external HDD. They are all kept in the same place next to the computer and I am aware that in case of a fire or a burglary they all might disappear, so every time the house is empty I hide some of the HDDs. Not an elegant solution. There are 2 possibilities: First take the backup disks to another part of our (large) house where they will be hidden and no-where near the computer and then link them directly to the Mac. BUT HOW? long USB? Powerline RJ45? The HDDs of course do not have RJ45 sockets. Secondly use a home server like a WD cloud server hidden away as above. These are called NAS servers. Which ones are good but not ridiculously expensive (up to say 300$) using some of those 2TB HDDs in it or connected by USB? A completely off site server might be too slow. We live in the country and although the Internet connection is good I think it might be a problem. I'd appreciate ideas and even a short discussion. Henry
  2. I've got a brand new MAC for school but a bunch of the programs I need to run are Windows-only. Is there any way to run them from my MAC computer or do I have to install windows on it somehow?
  3. I know computers should have antivirus. I have a Windows computer. Which antivirus should I go for? Also I am thinking about buying a Mac or Linux. Does Mac or Linux require antivirus to stay safe?
  4. I'm an old-school windows guy but I'm playing with a MAC at work (and typing on it now). Is there a simple way to take a screenshot kinda like the "PrintScreen" button on Windows? Trying to avoid buying Snagit on this MAC. Thanks
  5. I was at Bestbuy and shopping and a rep told me that on Mac I need more ram than on Windows. How does RAM work differently on Mac than it does on Windows? I'm not sure I get what is going on.

  9. I tried to download CCleaner on my Mac… it downloaded, but disappeared from my downloads tab, so I wasn’t able to run the install wizard.. I looked for it in Finder, found it, clicked on and it opened… but I didn’t have to set it up.It was the free download version for Mac. I don’t have the page with setting, cookies, advanced options etc why is this? I only have Cleaner and tools options on my side bar, not registry tools options etc and it says Analyze and Clean on the bottom, not run clean etc. Have a I downloaded a partial version? Thanks so much, I know nothing about this, help would be appreciated

  11. This is very frustrating. My site worked before, but now it does not. It looks good in iWeb, but when I publish it, all I see is the Home page. None of the links to the other pages are there. And when I type in the URL for the photo gallery manually, it doesn't load either. It doesn't even work when I publish locally. At my wit's end here!
