Quickbooks Question

Is there any way to set up a user on Quickbooks so that she can only view certain years? I see how to restrict her from editing those years but I don't want her to be able to see anything before 2014. I'm using Quickbooks Pro 2012.

Drone sim on mac

I have this RC USB controller that I was hoping to use with the FPV Freerider (or another flight sim on Mac). When I plug it, I get a notification that "PPM" has been plugged in. However when I open Freerider or Liftoff none of the motions on the controller are detected. Does anyone know how to make it work, or another controller that I can use with a sim on a mac?

Current best practice for a speedy streamlined web experience

After reading numerous articles recently about how much extra bloat loads on most webpages, and getting frustrated at slow loading speeds for content on most sites I visit, I'm wondering what the current best options are to swap this for speedy surfing, especially if I'm happy to have a mainly text-only experience?

Need a sleeve for the Macbook AIR 13" (not a Macbook Pro).

Why can't I find a nice, inexpensive sleeve (neoprene, felt, whatever) for my Macbook Air 13" laptop? I want a snug sleeve, not one that will fit any old 13" laptop. The Air is very thin, and it will swim in a sleeve meant for a 13" Macbook Pro. The local Mac Store was no help, nor was eBay, Etsy or Amazon. Unfortunately, I haven't found any to look at where I live either. My ideal price is under $30. Does anyone know of a sleeve that will really fit the 13" Air?

I have a 3TB Apple HD that I’ve been *ostensibly* using, in conjunction with Time Machine, to back up my data for the past couple of years. I say “ostensibly” because it takes forever and never seems to fully complete. Please help me figure out a new approach. [more inside]

2007 Toyota Avalon starting problem...

About two weeks ago I started my Avalon and pulled it into my garage. I turned the car off and decided to restart it to pull a little closer inside. It would try to turn over but would not start until after about 4 tries. The same thing today, I started the car, turned it off and went in the house for something, came out and it would not start until about 4 tries. There are no dash lights burning after starting, what could be the problem?
