In the Grad MML iMacs when you try to start Protools the icon appears, then disappears and the application never opens. I recall a problem like this before, but can't find the entry for it, and rebooting/messing with disk permissions/all my usual default solutions aren't working.
So, iMac#5 in Grad Center was running really slowly. I checked and "About this Mac" registered only 512MB of RAM. To me, this suggests that #5, just like the consultant station, has some bad RAM in it. Should we put a sign on it or something so that people don't use it?
This is a fairly esoteric error, but it was giving us some trouble this morning on the List consultant station.
If anybody is working on a netboot iMac and finds that they cannot upload MS Word documents to gmail because gmail detects a virus, either copy-paste the content of the word document to the email, or copy-paste te content into a plain-text editor like textedit or bbedit to save the file to tempwork. Once you restart the machine and open a new Word document, the problem disappears.
There are several Word Macro-viruses going around, Ed says, so use caution with Word documents.
