The major selling point that convinced me to get it was the server administrative tools. There just is not anything similar or anything like a ubuntu-server-gnome-admin for Linux. I don’t want to spend time setting up the basics (email server, chat, file sharing, …) and I want the rest to be easy and unnumbered too. Linux: you aren’t easy enough to use yet.
Have you ever done something to your user data in Opera (bookmarks, speed dial, emails, news feeds, …) or set a preferences you can’t figure out how to revert? It happens to all of us all the time, actually. Here is a little trick I use on my Mac whenever I mess up my Opera installation.
Mac users ought to be familiar with Time Machine, the feature that keeps a backup of everything on your Mac. Including your user data in Opera! From what I have seen on the Opera for Mac forums, I suspect that hardly anyone thinks about restoring their data from their Time Machine backups when disaster (or them self) strikes.
Here is a step by step guide to Retrieving Opera user data from Time Machine backup.
Having problems with your screen going black with only the mouse courser being visible? Here is a quick-tip on how-to recover from this problem.
- Press Control–Shift–Eject
- Wait for the screen to shut off, and then press Enter
This will restart the display and you wouldn’t have to restart the whole machine. I sometimes get crash logs when this happens, and they are all pointing to QuickLook helpers or graphic card drivers.
So much for open source and cheap solutions …
Long story short: Opera relies on the system to determine IPv6 link capabilities. Due to changes in Snow Leopard, this made Opera 10 attempt to make an IPv6 connection over IPv4 for IPv6/4 hybrid Web sites.
The latest snapshot release introduces a work around that will resolve this problem. The fix may introduce some problems on IPv6 only networks, but it is unlikely to affect any users.
