Photo contest prizes

I was pleased to win a gift card in a photo contest some time ago, but realize now it is probably no longer of any use, since it is from Lens & Shutter. Is someone else supporting the contest in this way?

Re: iMac won't wake from sleep after updating to OS 10.14.4

After all the aforementioned steps, which together seemed to fix the problem of not waking from sleep, this morning, after starting the computer and checking mail, it went to sleep on its own, and went back to the old pattern of not waking from sleep, cursor arrow immobile, then turning to spinning ...

Re: iMac won't wake from sleep after updating to OS 10.14.4

More on this: iMac was waking from sleep okay, but Mail and Safari woefully slow (interestingly, on my iMac and my MacBook Pro). Mail showing it was downloading over 300 messages, etc. I shut down computer, router and modem, and restarted in approved order, and things are much better. Not sure yet i...

Re: iMac won't wake from sleep after updating to OS 10.14.4

Answering my own post: I also reset System Management Controller, no help. Then I followed instructions to reinstall 10.14.4 from the internet. I had to leave for several hours. When I returned, there was an ominous message on the dark screen, a globe with an exclamation point within a triangle, and...

iMac won't wake from sleep after updating to OS 10.14.4

After I updated to OS 10.14.4 a day or two ago, my late 2013 27" 3.2.GHz iMac with 24 mb RAM will not wake from sleep. The screen remains black, with a cursor arrow, which sometimes turns to the spinning ball, which sometimes stops spinning. In any event, I have to shut down using the power but...

Re: Nikon View NX-i crashes

Thanks Charles - the latest version is 1.2.12 and I have that installed. I do use other software (ACDSee for Mac, Affinity Photo and Aperture mostly) and they are good for RAW processing (for both my Nikon and Canon cameras) but Nikon View (at least the earlier NX2) was the best for browsing Nikon i...

Nikon View NX-i crashes

Is anyone on the list using the free Nikon View NX-i app? If so, is anyone else finding that it crashes regularly, or is it just me? I'm using it on a 2013 iMac in High Sierra. It sometimes even crashes in the background when I am using another app. It is an awful replacement for View NX-2 but I kee...

Re: Disable iMessage signin window

I tried those suggestions. Messages was not in the dock, and when opened, the "keep in dock" and "open at login" buttons were unchecked. So I checked them both, then unchecked them, and closed the app and restarted the iMac - no change. I also wondered if I could just ignore it, ...

Re: Disable iMessage signin window

Charles, thanks for your reply. I did try those suggestions previously, but iMessage is not in the Dock, and neither does it appear in the startup items list where you suggested looking in System Preferences, so there was nothing that I could see to uncheck or turn off. I opened the Messages app fro...
