I got a call yesterday morning about Skype not being able to recognize the external firewire iSight's built-in microphone. The lady who I was on the phone with tested iChat and everything works fine. So all the hardware-side of things were hooked up correctly. The only possible hiccup is with the settings with Skype. I guided her through different screens of settings both in System Preferences and Skype to start the process of elimination to eventually seek out the wrong setting. Input Sound settings in System Preferences was showing the buil-in microphone for iSight as selected. So the last place to check was Audio settings in Skype.
It happened that the Apple Mac desktop she was using has a internal microphone already, and Skype by default selected that one rather than the one in the iSight camera. Changing the Input Audio device in Skype to iSight fixed the problem.
A very interesting question was asked of me earlier this evening about how to print return labels using Address Book application in Mac OS X. A lot of us may have used this print feature before to do mass mailing and it does save us a lot of time, if we know what we're doing. I was caught off guard as I have never used this feature and didn't quite figure it out on the spot.
So on the drive home, it occurred to me that Address book would only understand there is just one return address associate to the main account. Thus when one tries to print this return address, there is only one return address and lots of empty space.
The goal is to fill this empty space up with one address, and creating a new group for this purpose is the right approach. I ended up making a new group and named it "return labels". Then copy an address to use as the return address, and paste it in this group 30 times (or as much as your labels sheets can print). This works great and takes about 5 minutes to make your mailing task a bit easier.
