How can I setup my MacOS Sierra v. 10.12.6 to save its Time Machine backup directly to my Box.com account?

Box.com is an online storage account that I am currently subscribed to.

I would like to map my Box.com storage account so that my Mac will store its Time Machine backups within my Box.com storage account.

How can this be done?

A friend of mine is an Android user.  In the past, I could use Messages on my iPhone and Mac to text message them.  The outline of the messages with them would be green (which usually indicates they're a non iPhone user).

A recent update on my Macbook have suddenly made it not possible for me to get texts from my friend.  I still get texts on my iPhone, but they are not showing up in Messages anymore on my Macbook.

How do I turn this back on?

What are the correct methods for setting up a local NAS as the destination for holding Time Machine backups on a Mac OS Sierra v. 10.12.6 Mac?

The path where I would like to store these backups is 10.99.199.249.

I have typed in the following command within the terminal:

sudo tmutil setdestination -p afp://TimeMachine@10.99.199.249/Backups/MBP

Open in new window


However, I receive the message "Failed to open session. (error 5)
The backup destination could not be set"

What can be done to fix this issue so that I can use the NAS as the backup destination for the Time Machine backups?

While using the built in keyboard on my iPad 2 certain keys (such as the "O" key don't respond when I press the button.

My iPad was already doing this while it was running iOS v. 7 and continues to do it after being upgraded to the latest iOS version 9 and continues to do this after I have thoroughly cleaned the screen. I have rebooted the iPad and have shut it down and turned it back on several times.

What else can be done to fix this?

Hello I have a customer that purchased a mac book and not sure if they are going to invest in MS office but they are coming from a  windows system and all doc and everything was created using office.  What issues could they run into or should the transition work easily just learning the new interface and tools I don't have enough experience with the free office apps that come with the mac's. Any feedback will definitely be appreciated

I am running the latest OSX Server from Apple and have a departmental sharepoint for AFP.  The server is running as OD Master and all members of the department are in a group with read/write permission to the share.

When anyone in the department connects to the share, files do not show their metadata (Command-i is missing everything under "More Info").  If that same user drags the file to their local desktop, the data shows up great (keywords, camera metadata, etc.).  Drag it back to the share and it disappears again.  This must be some sort of permission issue but I can't determine what is causing this.

How do you feel about your iPhone?  If your iPhone was taken away today, how would this impact your day to day life?

Personally, I'd have to get an alarm clock again or I wouldn't wake up for work on time!

Lol! Yep, I've also ditched my alarm clock. I might still be able to get up for work without any sort of alarm though, since I recently set up some smart lightbulbs which gradually turn on between 6:30 - 7:00 and have been doing a decent job of waking me up. But then again... I set up the lightbulb scheduling with my iPhone! :-D

User has Filemaker Pro 6 Files that they opened with FileMaker Pro 8 and converted to latest format.  The problem is that these new files now ask for a user name and password, whereas before they only asked for a password for access.

What is the 'trick' for opening these upgraded files?

Thanks
