Re: applescript: and telnet: URLS…

The security update to fix this was just released, so your files should be safe for now.

Re: iPod unmounting/sleep

This is possibly a bug. What kind of machine do you have?

Buzz, thanks for the heads-up. – Although there seems to be more trouble growing. Quite obvious if you come to think of it. Perhaps OSX is a bit too user-friendly in that respect by now.

In fact, some serious thinking and re-designing may be needed to eventually sort these things out. I saw that Windows computers have different security settings depending on where data comes from (or so). Perhaps MS is ahead of the curve for a change? (Although I also saw that Windows users set all of these settings to the least secure as ‘things don’t work’ otherwise.

Re iPod: I am using my iPod with a first generation Powerbook G4. There had been problems with that combination before: the Powerbook becoming unresponsive during iPod access – but these seem to have been fixed by the recent iPod update.
