iTunes 7.3 update: Weird package problem

I tend to keep the packages I install from Apple, just incase I need to reinstall stuff, so when I went to reinstall iTunes on the iMac G4, I remembered reading about the error I got when I tried to run the package: Betalogue » Blog Archive » iTunes 7.3 update: Weird package problem:
It still holds for 7.3.1, and it applied to downloading the package only, or installing and keeping it and then trying to reinstall it again.

Firmware Update 1.3 fixes Airport issues?

The Santa Rosa MacBook Pros have an issue where, depending on the type of wireless access point, if you use WPA (or perhaps even WEP, although why you would even bother is beyond me), when you run on battery power you get a kernel panic. The latest firmware update seems to have fixed this issue. It also seems to have fixed the issue where my machine wouldn’t automatically connect to a wireless network when waking up from sleep. Finally, the third issue I had, with not being able to permanently trust a certificate because I don’t have the root certificate, also seems to be fixed. Finally, painless wireless networking.

iCal Annoyance

Here’s an interesting little bug. Create a copy of a timed event in iCal (or just go to any timed event, I’m just making a copy so I can delete it later). Edit the start or finish time or date. When you are finished editing, press Tab. The time or date change will stick. If you chose a start time, the end time will adjust so the event is the same length. This is very cool, if, like me, you have lots of fixed-time events. Okay, now edit the time again. This time, instead of pressing Tab when you are finished, press Enter instead. Notice how the edit was actually discarded? This is crazy, crazy behaviour. The sort of thing you should be shot for. I mean, since when does Enter imply “ignore the edits I just made”? I mean, seriously. And this is before the fact that most of my friends hate me sending iCal invitations, as they don’t see the link for them to click on. I have to resort to sending gCal invites if I want responses!
