Reminder to self: MacOS prints to HP printers using IPP on port 631

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/07/12

At a site, something in the network filtering changed, so printing from a Mac failed.

In the end this was about port 631, which is for the IPP protocol a Mac uses.

A truckload of information is at [WayBack] Applesauce – The ReActiveMicro Apple II Wiki

It is still being updated: [WayBack] applesauce – Apple II Floppy Drive Controller

Via [WayBack] This week, in 6502-related hardware, the Applesauce: a Disk II imaging kit for your Apple II disks. Thanks to the minimal nature of Woz’ disk interface,… – mos6502 – Google+

ms office – Keyboard shortcut to select all text in a cell in Excel – Ask Different

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/06/10

Via [WayBack] ms office – Keyboard shortcut to select all text in a cell in Excel – Ask Different a few keyboard tips.

Lets start with the shortest one:

  1. Put the focus on the cell (click, use arrow keys, etc)
  2. Press space
  3. Press CommandZ or ControlZ to undo the change

This probably is unintended, but works great: all text is now selected, so you can copy/cut with Command-C/CommandX.

Now the “official” way:

  1. Put the focus on the cell (click, use arrow keys, etc)
  2. Press ControlU or F2 to edit the cell (the cursor is now at the end)
  3. Press ShiftAltHome or ShiftControlHome (to select all text)
    note: Home can also be FnLeft.

Other selections you can make while the cell is in edit mode:

  • Press ShiftAltEnd or ShiftControlEnd (to select to the end of the cell)
    note: End can also be FnRight.
  • Press ShiftAltRight or ShiftControlRight (to select one word to the right)
  • Press ShiftAltLeft or ShiftControlLeft (to select one word to the left)
  • Press ShiftAltDown or ShiftControlDown (to select to the same position on the line below)
  • Press ShiftAltUp or ShiftControlUp (to select to the same position on the line up)

Keyboard symbols (more at [WayBackCommand, Option, & Shift Symbols in Unicode):

  • Shift
  • ^Control
  •  – Alt which is the same as Option
  •  – Command
  • Fn – Function

Did Apple remove dashboard in MacOS Catalina? – Appleosophy

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/06/10

It was fun while it lasted: [WayBack] Did Apple remove dashboard in MacOS Catalina? – Appleosophy

I especially like the iStat Pro (though unsupported) widget, and that you can have a dashboard without the need to go on-line.

If might be that Übersicht can help me, but I am not sure yet if there is a good iStat Pro equivalent for it.

Future links to investigate:
