I have OS X 10.5.6 and Logitech V470 bluetooth mouse.
1. When I hide the dock it stays hidden and there is no way for me to get the dock to reappear without turning off autohide
2. My courser works sporadically
a. sometimes it will only work on some area's of the screen
b. sometimes it won't recognize clicks
Are these related? and can I fix this? [more inside]

Great MeFites, I come bearing but a humble request. I bought a MacBook Pro about six months before Leopard was released. When it finally came out, I installed it on a partition on an external drive, which I would boot from (because OS X is awesome like that, amirite?) so I could test out all my apps. Now I'm ready to commit to Leopard full-time - what's the best way to go about transplanting my Leopard partition? [more inside]

Mac osx/canon hg10 cannot get stills off camera. Video yes, stills no. We're supposed to have a baby any day now and this sucker ain't behaving (the camera-mac connection). I haven't had this kind of problem with a mac in 10 years. [more inside]

How do I give my computers subdomain names on my local network? For example, mylaptop.mynetwork.com, mydesktop.mynetwork.com, momslaptop.mynetwork.com, kids.mynetwork.com and so on?
Do I have to set up some kind of local DNS or is there an easier way to do it in the router?
I am not concerned at this point about being able to access the subdomains from the WAN although that would be handy later. It's the LAN I'm interested in.
(Obviously I am using Bonjour right now but for I want to use the subdomains too).
I own mynetwork.com and it points to a static IP.
My LAN router is firewalled behind that. It's a WRT54G running DD-WRT.
I have a spare computer I could run DNS on but I'd rather not have to do that.
Everything is Macs running OS X, mostly Leopard.

I need to change the name of a font that is embedded in the font itself. Any suggestions for free or cheap, basic font editing software? I don't need something over the top like Fontographer, just something with the ability to change the name.

OS Xperts: 2 questions related to the trashcan (OS X v. 10.4.9)
1. The trashcan left my finder sidebar. I can find a .trash file to drag over, but its not the same as the original sidebar trashcan. How can I restore the trash to the sidebar?
2. OS X religiously creates trashcan folders for every storage device. On USB keys, this is more trouble than its worth, and causes me to have to empty the entire trashcan to free up space on a USB key I just supposedly deleted everything on. I can't find a Pref panel setting or .plist file that affects file deletion behavior.
How can this property (and all trash properties) be modified?
