Wanting to provide networked Time Machine backups for a number of macs I decide to try the Iomega StorCenter ix2-200d. This has a wide feature set and a low entry price. Of course, you can build your self a FreeNAS based system that will offer much of the same functionality but the automatic support for Time Machine is what did it for me.
The next release of KosmicTask will be Beta 2 which should arrive before Christmas.
23 issues have dealt with according to the issue tracker with 6 remaining that target Beta 2.
Main improvements in Beta 2 will be a completed application menu, improved editing, improved memory usage and lots of GUI fixes. Task result saving is correctly implemented. Fixed a hard to isolate reconnection issue when stopping and starting multiple network instances.
Beta 2 should be feature and implementation complete.
On one of my development machines, which has seen a bit of fiddling it must be admitted, I find that the normal currency symbol for the locale is not displayed (be it £, $ or €). Instead I am presented with the following symbol: ¤.
Now I know that I have seen it before, but where? And secondly, what is it?
The seller admin interface to the PayPal site, to me, seems destined to confuse. I always forget how to get to such info as the Account Information, Financial Information and Selling Preferences.
I think the cause of this is the second level menu drop down menu structure. You hover over Profile, say, the options drop down, you don't see what you want so scratch your head and start poking around again.
