My chat sessions are full-screen, every time i open up a window, it opens with half of the window out of my screen.

How can i fix this problem to 'fix' adium's chat windows position?
Anyone has solutions?

For documents & contents folders you value their privacy, your best bet is to use Disk Utility to create a encrypted disk (up to DVD size for easy archive to DVD) and keep them in it. To be truly private, *never* accept the offer to store the password in your Keychain.



There are of course 3rd partiy apps that do what you want but can you be sure the 3rd party will still be around when you want to support in future?
But what ab saving the the hidden file onto the Mac HDD...? How can i make it appear or disappear as i wish and stop those prying eyes....keke =) No intention to backup to DVD dics

Any filename that starts with a period, .gayporn.mp4, will automatically be hidden by unix.

Look for its preferences file in /~Library/Preferences, and delete it, or use Pref Setter to edit it.

Remove the dot lor.

Here... go buy this Finder replacement; can toggle Finder hidden files easily.

Look for keyword "frame" and change the series of digits that represent the coordinates.

Make sure you quit Adium first.

Is there a way to connect eSata devices to the macbook presently? Preferably to the firewire port through a converter.

If not, are there any equivalents which are available locally other than waiting for the Firmtek SeriTek/SpyderHUB?
