I know. That's what I did.

About the printer... I have a network printer too. I wasn't talking about local printing. My printer is even a Wi-Fi one which one would think would have an even worse problem with that since Wi-Fi is generally regarded as being less reliable than wired.
Windows printer server? Because that's what most people (including me) seem to have the problems with.

I seemed to have missed when you mentioned this before. I apologize if you did and I glossed over it. No not "windows printer server"....

One more thing about Mavericks: it's actually the first time I come into contact with the notorious Apple Maps (having successfully avoided iOS 6 & 7 so far). That's what I got when trying out it's satellite view:

If you think that's a glitch or something (like I did first): no, it isn't. This is actually what the satellite pictures of the area around my town look like. (Look for Münster, Germany, if you want to witness that train wreck yourself…)

Dumb question, but how do I upload a screenshot? I have my own favorite Apple Maps snafu I'd like to share.

Please Matt, here at IMG we firmly believe that there is no such thing as a stupid question.  A question is always just another question, neither smart nor dumb.  We have long since determined that it is always the asker of the question who is stupid.

Just above the text box you type your reply into, there is a little square greenish icon.  Just mouse over the icons in the line starting with "B I U" and you will get a small descriptive text that says "image", click on that icon and follow the directions.

If the image is not online then activate the full editor by clicking on the "More Reply Options" button on the bottom right under the reply text box.  When that opens you will see under the reply text box the "Attach Files" section with a big paperclip.  First click "Choose File" and follow the directions.  Then click "Attach This File", the graphic will appear as an attachment where the cursor is currently located in the reply text box.

Add reply when ready.

Thanks. I did see the URL option but I figured I'd probably remove the source image from my dropbox at some point, and then where would be be?

Then there's the My Media button, which gives me the option to insert items from your media library, gloriously unburdened by the ability to actually put anything in my media library in the first place.

Finally there's More Reply Options (thanks for the tip) but it restricts my total uploads to an impractical 1 megabyte.

I'm no longer convinced that the asker of the question is quite the stupidest thing here. :-)

Here's my favorite Apple Maps snafu. The screenshot is self-explanatory, thanks to the lettering on the roof of the stadium.

Their search function does find the arena, but the label is wrong. Sadly, I reported this one when Apple Maps was first released for iOS, and again a month or two ago, and they've made no move to fix it. So don't waste your time submitting corrections to Apple.

(This does raise a question, which is what is the deal with putting lettering on the roof of the stadium? Are they branding themselves for satellite photos and airplane passengers?)

:lol: Give them some break: that arena changed its name only three years ago. You can't expect them to keep up with that.

Pretty much. There seems to be a certain trend here. I have actually seen something similar also on some company headquarters' roofs.

Recently Google maps had a snafu where they picked historical names for a plaza in Berlin.

Or maybe the corporate bigwigs want to make sure their helicopter lands in the right place. All those roofs look pretty much the same. :-)
