The web site Mac OS X Hints is always a good read, but Rob has a particularly good crop of hints these days, at least as far as I am concerned:
- “Some info on Unicode and multilingual Macs” explains the difference between “composed Unicode” and “decomposed Unicode”. I wondered why I was getting these weird accented characters when cutting text from a French-language PDF in Preview and pasting it into a Word document. Now I know!
- “Create bootable clones via the command line” provides information on how to create clones remotely using the command line. (Carbon Copy Cloner cannot be used remotely as far as I can tell.)
- “Panther Server Mailing lists quirks” provides useful tips about using Mac OS X Server’s built-in mailing list manager Mailman — which is something that I am going to use very soon for my own Xserve running Panther Server.
- And “Repair an imapd fatal error on OS X Server” and “How to rebuild IMAP mailboxes on OS X Server” provide detailed information on problems with Mac OS X Server’s Cyrus mail service.
