Mac migration tips

I recently changed macs so am going through the usual migration and import issues, thought I'd share my tips

Sparsebundle cannot be found on old hardrive…. Time machine won't allow you to open your old files… If you plug in your old harddrive to a new OSX then you need to view hidden files to see it (there are a few ways, one is with Terminal).. type:
defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE

If you have an entourage problem where the application says "this identity cannot be opened with this version of entourage" (e.g. You installed entourage to your new mac but your can't get your old email settings / identity)

Update entourage on your new mac / download the service packs / updates etc.

Then replace the new OfficePID.plist with your old one. In the Finder, select /Applications/Microsoft Office 2008/Office/OfficePID.plist
Replace the new: Microsoft User Data/Office 2008 Identities/Main Identity (with your old one), this should bring in all your old settings

More help:

My very own radio and television broadcasting antenna ... i wish.
Last week I was asked to present at an Internet TV conference in Georgia...

Also, not that I need them but I thought I'd try on some (semi-augumented reality) glasses today :) warbyparker.com

Darn again - Google real-time search

I've been ranting on to colleagues for the last month about how the google chiefs figured out about 10 years back that "in an age of information overload, finding information would be key"..... then I went off dreaming about where we're heading to now and in an already information rich society, knowing what's happening in real-time will be key.

Then I discoved that monster machine was at it again.



Still, plenty more ideas where that came from.
