Applications :: What's The Meaning Of M+/M-

Apr 15, 2010

When use "top" command to check the memory usage for some process, some times the output will display like "34M+", "15M-".

Does that mean "more than 34M"/"less than 15M"? if so, why doesn't use the same sign, like "34M+"/"14M+" , or "35M-"/"15M-"?

Mac Pro :: Benchmark Tests Meaning?

Mar 16, 2008

I have a few questions:

When sites do various benchmark tests, they typically use something like 3DMark, and I think Cinebench CPU, etc.

First, I probably got those benchmark apps wrong...which ones do tech sites typically use?

Also, what exactly do these benchmarks exam.

Say I have a rendering application that is processor heavy...what benchmark should I be looking at?

Say I have another application for modeling, and I know it is graphics intensive. What benchmark should I be looking at?

And, to round things out, if I have an application that I know is memory heavy, what stats should I look at.

The reason I'm asking, is when upgrading my computer (at this point RAM), or considering a new MacPro, I want to know I'm buying for the right reasons.

I don't want to buy a powerful computer to find out that its max potential is not fully realized as it relies on something else. Granted I understand a new comp all around will perform better. However, applications such as Maxwell render does not hold back, it will use every processor available (8-cores would be amazing!), but others don't rely on processor, but memory more so.

Even then, I'm not sure all the time how the application performs. With as many apps as I use for different things (Rhino NURBS modeling [XP], Maxwell Render, VIZ/3DS Max, SketchUp, Adobe CS3, CAD) I can't always tell what part of the comp they use.

Thanks [for those who read everything and understand what I'm asking]

My isp (Comcast) informed me that I could no longer send emails unless I changed my email port from port 25 to port 587. When I open my network preferences to make the change I get a message that my network preferences have been changed by another application. When I cancel the message it reappears and will not allow me to do anything even quit network preferences.

Software :: Meaning Of Font Icons In Mail Program?

May 15, 2008

Does anyone have any idea as to what those icons are in under "Fonts" in the Apple mail program? Launch Mail. New. Choose Fonts. And you'll see " T underlined" explained....T cross thru, etc. Then you'll see a colored box...launches colors....Then a picture of a page. What does that do? Another "T" this time you can change the background color of the box back and forth. Then some sort of bars with a triangle, a box and a smaller box. Wait? Am I playing Myst? Then, finally a wheel that you can change from degrees.

Applications :: Does Turning On The Discrete Graphics Card Make Applications Faster?

May 27, 2010

Sorry for the incredibly stupid question, but I just got the gfxCardStatus application for my i5, and was wondering whether turning on the NVIDIA video card will make applications like Mail, Firefox, etc. faster?

I read something about OpenCL, but am not really sure whether it works for all applications.

I find that turning on the NVIDIA card, instead of using the integrated Intel one, makes my laptop hotter.

Applications :: Word Docs Saved As Aliased To Applications Folder?

Aug 17, 2010

My dad was saving a bunch of Word docs on his Mac - he had one large file that he split up into twenty-some smaller files, which he then saved onto both his desktop and on a flash drive. Somehow along the way (neither he nor I had any clue how) but 4 of those files saved as an alias that point to nowhere. In other words, I can't find the originals anywhere on his computer or flash drives.

Even stranger is that one of those files aliased to the Applications folder. Keep in mind these are all supposed to be word documents. They all still end with .doc, but their type is an alias. I have no clue how they were created as an alias, but they were. It's probably a longshot without knowing where the original is located, but do any of you guys know how to possibly retrieve this?

MacBook :: Applications Installed Correctly But Not Showing In Applications Folder?

I have a friends MacBook running 10.6.8 2.26Ghz Intel Core Duo 8 gig ram. I have installed UnrarX a couple of times with no errors in the installation process, however the application does not appear in the applications folder or any where else and cannot find it to open .rar files.

Applications :: Time Machine Reinstall - Applications Crashing On Mac

Oct 23, 2009

I recently reinstalled OSX 10.5.8 on my penryn MBP so I could make a larger XP bootcamp partition. After reinstalling leopard and restoring my whole system through time machine my computer is acting weird. First, "the file "itunes library" cannot be read because it was created by a newer version of itunes". It didn't upgrade itunes to 9 till after I had done all the TM restoring. should be older, no? Second, adobe applications crashed. I was in AI working on a 500 mb file and BOOM, beach ball>crash. All other CS3 unable to open. I have 4 gigs of ram and some of the applications that would not open were not even in use at the time of the AI crash, could this be something with the TM backup? CS3 was all installed together.

Third. While this epic crash is happening on my desktop disappears. Just a blank desktop image. but wait, If I click were things used to be, Bam they appear out of no where, but only if I click where it is supposed to be. It's there in the desktop folder but not showing up as icons on my desktop. I think this has happened to me before the reinstall too, though never all at once, usually when I use the "pinchy" to resize icons one or two will disappear. Fourth. Cisco clean access agent beach balls and requires hard reset. the login window was floating on screen all the way till the screen turned off. These all happened in the same day, now It is working some what like normal, though my itunes is broke. Any ideas on how to fix this itunes? If I only need one application and it's plug-ins (SU and Podium beta) restored through TM ( i have a disk for all the others) is there a way to just restore the one. Would this give me a more stable system over all? should I go ahead and reinstall and restore the one app and do the rest manually?

Applications :: Needed To Re-install OSX, Files Were Saved, Applications Were Not?

Jun 5, 2010

alrightyyy so basically my unibody 2008 macbook crashed a short while back, needed to re-install OSX, files were saved, applications were not. I had been using iLife '09 off a copy that my mother got with with her 2009 polycarbonate macbook. After the crash I upgraded to 10.6 and attempted to install iLife '09 again. It told me thus: 'Alert: this software cannot be installed on this computer'. And that's it. I can't access any of my pictures in iPhoto or upload any(3 wedding albums :3), and I can't access any of my old Garage Band files, simply because they were created on '09 and since the reboot I'm stuck with '08. Major bummer. Bottom Line: is there any way to get iLife '09 on my computer without wasting $100 just to access files?
