    Need easy way to switch from DHCP to Static IP

    There are maybe 30 devices on the net at one time. About a third of those are wired. The rest are mostly notebooks (and iPads) checking email. The problems surface during the week. We don't use the network for our Sunday projections (except for the scary moments when the Pastor shows up and...

    Need easy way to switch from DHCP to Static IP

    Hmmm. Doesn't seem to match up with what I am hearing from the teachers. But I will discuss it with them. Thanks. -----Paul-----

    Need easy way to switch from DHCP to Static IP

    Our church school has a small wireless network. I try to support it. For some reason, lately it has stopped giving IP addresses to some machines. Wireless, anyhow. Wired still seems to work OK. Most of the teachers have Windows machines and I install a program called NetSetMan which lets...

    iPad 1 resets while using

    Thank you very much. Method 2 proved to be the answer. Of course, we still have no idea what was causing the problem. But I appreciate the cure. -----Paul-----

    iPad 1 resets while using

    We gave my mother-in-law an iPad for her 90th. She seems to like it. When things go wrong, it comes back to me. Unfortunately, I am a Windows guy. But you folks have been helpful in the past, so I am hoping you will be again. The problem does not happen with every app. With the apps that...

    4.2 upgrade scariness

    @andjoh: Oh, yeah. Thanks for your offer to analyze the flipcam's video. If I ever get my hands on it again, I will send you a bit. But that's one piece of the iPad nonsense I find unforgivable. Once I loaded the bits onto the iPad, I had no way to get them back. They were there, smiling...

    4.2 upgrade scariness

    @andjoh: Thank you. I would place blame on folks who developed video formats but they all grew up during 8.3 naming convention time. But, from now on, the name of a format ought to specify exactly what it is. All of the video converters give a finite but very large number of possible...

    4.2 upgrade scariness

    Ahhh, well, it was a late night and I was a stranger in a strange land and I found it annoying. But I can't really claim Windows hasn't done the same thing to me. But, really, how many times can the iPad annoy someone and still have them respect it in the morning. First I transfer movies...

    4.2 upgrade scariness

    After action report Aaaand, after posting the above I went to disconnect the iPad from the computer and went to close iTunes first and in the File menu I spotted a 'Transfer Purchases' item. Which seems to have solved that problem. 4.2 being downloaded. It's not like Windows is good at...

    4.2 upgrade scariness

    We got my 90 year old mother-i-law an iPad this summer. She seems to like it a lot. I loaded it with a few apps and some videos and a bunch of pictures. She mostly uses it for email. Her own computer does not run iTunes and I don't think she would know how to sync it if it did. I'm a...

    Anybody got a good dominoes game?

    Specifically, looking for Mexican Train Dominoes. Preferably a single player vs. computer rather than an online game.

    Smells like victory.

    Hi, I'm Paul

    After one day with her iPad, my 90 year old Mother-in-Law says she is delighted. She has watched a TV video, viewed photos, played games. I haven't heard that she has accessed her email yet. Expect that to come soon.

    Creating new photo folders/moving pics

    Yes, it is generally accorded that dictatorships are more efficient than bureaucracies. Neither is guaranteed to provide a pleasant outcome.

    No HELP key

    I think one of the major design lacks of he iPad is the lack of a universal HELP key (F1). Load an app and try to guess how it works is a lousy user experience. Some provide an opening screen with instructions but once in the program there is no way to pop back for details. If there are any.

    Hi, I'm Paul

    Bought an iPad to give to my 90 year old Mother-in-Law. She has been getting along OK with her UNR netbook but I think she will like this. Spent a week loading apps for her. Only found this site when I got the camera adapter and was trying to find a way to rename an album on the iPad...
