For those still using Eudora, Adam has finally finished his detailed look at how to convert email from Eudora to, well, something else (that’s part of the question). He also warns about how Lion’s Versions technology can fail silently if you’re saving on a network volume or a USB flash drive not formatted as HFS+ (which is probably most of them). Also this week, if you’re having problems with hibernation mode in a MacBook using an OWC solid-state drive, OWC now has a firmware updater you can use to fix the problems. Notable software releases this week include 1Password 3.9 and 3.8.5, Security Update 2011-005, Firefox 6.0.2, and Parallels Desktop 7.
If you’ve been having problems with your OWC SSD-equipped MacBook not coming out of hibernate mode properly, there’s a firmware update you can apply via the Mac itself. Sounds obvious, but it’s a first.
If you work on documents stored on a network server or a USB flash drive that’s not formatted as HFS+, Auto Save and Versions could conspire to put you in a situation where you will be disappointed if you need to revert to an older version of a document.
After years of entirely justified procrastination, Adam attempts to convert his stored mail in Eudora — nearly 1 million messages in over 600 mailboxes — to, well, something else. The reason? The loss of Rosetta in Lion. The process? A long and troublesome journey, with no clear end, but hopefully some lessons you can apply when converting your own Eudora archive.
Notable software releases this week include 1Password 3.9 and 3.8.5, Security Update 2011-005, Firefox 6.0.2, and Parallels Desktop 7.
