Over the last weeks the backup of my Mac got slower and slower and no matter what, even backing up a few MB took “forever”.
I tried the usual “Safe Boot” trick but that didn’t help either, a backup was still taking forever. Then I read about issues with the Spotlight index and gave that a try.
Basically I’ve deleted the Spotlight index and then created a new one, excluding the files/folders from being indexed which I have also excluded from the backup. The first backups were still slow but now they seem back running at a normal pace.
I’ve helped a customer solving a compatibility problem, Adobe CC broke the drag&drop feature in Notes, by sneaking in an IBM Notes 9 install on their Mac.
Couldn’t help laughing when reading his question..
Good news….. It worked!
Curious though, what exactly is the “Social Edition”?
Thank you very much.
After reading Andy Donaldson’s blog entry about testing Traveler for Android using the Android SDK I thought to add my tip as well.
Besides using the SDK for testing and documentation purposes you should give http://bluestacks.com a try. BlueStacks is a native Android runtime environment for your computer and I have been using it for a few months.
It gives you a “full” Android environment and is much lighter, meaning needs less resources, then the SDK.
It’s still in beta but I rarely had problems with it and since a few days they have also released a version for Mac.
and no.. I have not been playing Angry Birds on it but you could.. 😉
