WTF - two 1Password sync files in my iCloud storage?

I finally found out the solution from AgileBits: After updating to the new iCloud CloudKit engine in OS X Yosemite and iOS 8, you may see two 1Password sync files in your iCloud storage. One is from the old engine and the other from t he new engine. As it is difficult to tell the two apart, the easiest method is to reset sync for 1Password entirely. Since both the Mac and iOS device have local copies of the data, we can remove and regenerate iCloud data easily. We’ll do most of the work on the Mac. Disable iCloud sync on all devices.  iOS:  In 1Password, tap Settings > Sync > Sync Service > Disable iCloud.  Mac:  Open 1Password and click 1Password > Preferences > Sync > Change Syncing > Disable Sync.  Remove the newer iCloud data.  Click Help > Troubleshooting > Erase iCloud data. Remove older iCloud data.  Open System Preferences and click iCloud. Click Manage. Click the remaining 1Password entry, then click Delete All.  Restart all devic

Laundry hacks to save time

1. Reshape a stretched jumper Soak stretched jumper in a tub of tepid water with a squirt of hair conditioner, it can be moulded back into shape. Just make sure you lay it flat to dry. 2. Speed drying trick Need a school uniform or other garment dried in a hurry? Throw a dry towel in with the wet item of clothing in the dryer and it will be ready to wear quick-sticks. 3. No more odd socks Give each child a mesh washing bag to hang in their room for dirty socks. Once a week, collect all the bags, toss them in the wash and the pairs will stay together. Have a separate washing basket for socks and undies so you always wash them together. 4.

How fast are Optus’ internet speeds?

How fast are internet speeds? And why aren’t my speeds consistent when using different websites or internet services - and at different times of the day? Well, this is like asking how fast you'll go if you had a Ferrari. Fast, right? But in reality it will depend on the speed limit of the road you’re travelling on and traffic conditions. Like roads, our networks have different speed limits - some being much faster than others - and all are dictated by factors meaning you may experience slower speeds than the maximum, most of the time. NETWORK "SPEED LIMITS" Technology Speed Limit What stops you experiencing these speeds?   Download Upload Specific to a technology All technologies ADSL (ULL) 20 Mbps 820 Kbps* With ADSL there is no simple answer for speed. It starts at 20 Mbps download but gets much slower the further you live from an exchange

5 Tips For DIY Property Inspection

Inspecting a property, what are the things to look out for? 1. Check for dampness Finding neglect damp spots around the home, so if you see mould accompanied by a musty smell it is time to call in the experts for a qualified judgment of damage and cause. It can cause around $5,000 on average to resolve damp issues around the home, but serious cases could draw $50,000 from your pocket. 2. Check the water pressure Don’t be embarrassed to use taps (hot and cold), toilets and hoses to make sure the water pressure is running smoothly. If you flush the toilet and the water line wells up, this is usually a sign that the sewer lines are partially blocked and may need repairing. The average lifespan of a hot water system is around 10 years. Ask how old the system is in the particular home and budget for spending around $6,000 on average to fix faulty or illegal plumbing. If you suspect damaged water systems call in the professionals to assess the damage before proceeding

You know you're Australian if...

Got this email today from one of my friends today. You know the meaning of the word 'girt'. You believe that stubbies can be either drunk or worn. You think it's normal to have a leader called Kevin. You waddle when you walk due to the 53 expired petrol discount vouchers stuffed in your wallet or purse. You've made a bong out of your garden hose rather than use it for something illegal such as watering the garden. You believe it is appropriate to put a rubber in your son's pencil case when he first attends school. When you hear that an American 'roots for his team' you wonder how often and with whom. You understand that the phrase 'a group of women wearing black thongs' refers to footwear and may be less alluring than it sounds. You pronounce Melbourne as 'Mel-bin'. You pronounce Penrith as 'Pen-riff'.

Rat Race: Are you in middle class?

There are many factors that can define the middle class of a society, such as money, education, professional or employment status, home ownership, or culture. By all means, MONEY is the primary factor! How much you earn, how much you have in the bank or under your bed determine your social class. It's sad, but it's true. We all try to deny this reality. Good news. Various statistics support the notion that the middle class is shrinking. Portions of both Upper class and lower class are growing; the middle class is shrinking. The bell shape is going to be upside down. Now, the question is whether you will climb up to upper class or fall down to the lower class.

Should public transportation system be government-owned?

Down under, living in Melbourne, Australia, we have one of the best transportation system. I took trains daily between my home and office. It takes me 30 minutes only; comparing to driving, it may be up to an hour. Metro is now the company maintaining the system. Is it worth to have a private company handling our public system? Now, we spent up to 3 (?) billion for Myki (contracted for 10 years). Won't it be cheaper to make the public system for free? Let's do some calculation: Fare evasion is 13%; Metro says they lose 50 millions out on that. It means around 400 millions per year. From VAGO, profit is around 30% of revenue. It comes to 270 millions cost per year.
