Earlier I was installing some applications on my little sisters Macbook Pro and needed to verify how much disk space was available. I was installing numerous applications and I wasn’t sure how large her hard drive was or how much space she had already used. Below is a brief explanation on how to find out how much disk space is available on a Mac running OSX, which in this example is specifically OSX Leopard, using both the terminal or some graphical tools.-h, about this mac, CLI, df, disk free, disk space, finder, human readable, leopard, macbook, os x, OSX, Serial ATA, switch, terminal

By default when you connect your iPhone or Touch to your Windows PC the device will sync with your iTunes. The sync not only synchronizes certain data as described below but it also does a backup of data stored on the iDevice as well. This backup will allow you to restore most items back to your iPhone or iPod Touch if something happens to the data located on that device. Knowing the location of this data can be important in case you want to also take that data and make another backup off of your computer.
iPhone/iPod Touch Default Backup Locations:1.1, 2.0, Apple, backup, iDevice, iPhone, iPod, iPod Touch, iTunes, mobile sync, mobilesync, operating system, OS, os x, sync, windows xp

Use the below syntax from the Terminal window on a Macintosh computer running OS X 10.5 (Leopard) to clear the DNS cache for the computer.
You might need to flush the DNS cache if you know a DNS change has been made recently but your Mac is not showing the change. OS X does a good job of DNS caching but it may take longer than you want to wait to update a changed DNS setting and running the above command will solve your issue without having to reboot.Tags: 1.0.5, cache, DNS, dscacheutil, flushcache, Mac, macintosh, os x

There is a web page on Adobe’s web site that will display the current version of the Flash Player that you have installed for a certain browser. Use the below URL to see the current version of Flash followed by the latest versions of Flash located at the bottom of the web page.
Current Flash Player Version: Click Here
Please be aware that there are different versions of the Flash Player for Windows based on your browser. If you have the newest version installed for Internet Explorer then it does not mean that you have the latest version installed for FireFox. Safari, Opera, and FireFox do all use the same version of the Flash Player but Internet Explorer is a different plugin so keep that in mind if you are seeing something different between browsers.
The same is true for Macintosh in a different way. There are different versions of Flash Player for OS X PowerPC and OS X Intel.Tags: firefox, Flash, flash player, Internet Explorer, opera, os x, plugin, PowerPC, safari, version, windows

Recently I was installing some applications on a friends iMac computer and noticed his address bar was missing from the Safari web browser. I had never seen this before as I rarely use Safari though I imagine it was easy to resolve.
To add the address bar back into the browser you can either restore the toolbar defaults or just add in the address bar itself. To restore the default toolbar settings follow the steps below.address bar, Apple, browser, buttons, customize, default, F10, imac, missing, os x, safari, search, settings, toolbar, web browser
