Removing Photos from iPhoto

Despite iPhoto's long history, many people continue to be confused about exactly what happens when you delete a photo. There are three possibilities.

If you delete a photo from an album, book, card, calendar, or saved slideshow, the photo is merely removed from that item and remains generally available in your iPhoto library.

If, however, you delete a photo while in Events or Photos view, that act moves the photo to iPhoto's Trash. It's still available, but...

If you then empty iPhoto's Trash, all photos in it will be deleted from the iPhoto library and from your hard disk.

Got those MacTCP 2.0.6 Updater Blues?

Send Article to a Friend

Got those MacTCP 2.0.6 Updater Blues? Many MacTCP 2.0.4 users have had bad experiences trying to use the MacTCP 2.0.6 updater (see TidBITS-255). Specifically, the updater application often refuses to update the existing version of MacTCP because the driver resource ".ipp" doesn't match what the updater expects.

The updater works properly on a "clean" copy of MacTCP 2.0.x that's never been installed; however, if you're absolutely stuck without a "clean" copy, this particular problem may be fixed with ResEdit (but no guarantees):

ftp://ftp.apple.com/dts/mac/tools/resedit/ resedit-2-1-3.hqx

1) Make a copy of the MacTCP 2.0.x control panel.

2) Using ResEdit 2.1.1 or higher, open your copy of the MacTCP control panel.

3) Locate the DRVR resource and open it. You should see only one resource, ID 22, called Driver: ".ipp".

4) Select the driver resource and choose Get Resource Info from the Resource menu.

5) At the bottom of the resource info window are six checkboxes: uncheck the System Heap checkbox.

6) Save your changes and quit ResEdit.

7) Run the appropriate MacTCP updater on your modified copy of the MacTCP control panel.

8) Swap the updated MacTCP and the old MacTCP in your Control Panels folder and restart.

Note that updates to MacTCP 2.0.4 or 2.0.6 cannot be performed on versions 1.x of MacTCP. [GD]
