In this video, you'll learn how to use the pick random block to make your clone's movement unexpected and interesting. Drag out a go to block, and place a when flag clicked event above it. . Then, add a go to front block and a when flag clicked event to the storefront sprite to make your clones show through the store window. Compromise If you never try, then you'll never fail If you never fail, then you'll never gain And you'll be a window shopper Don't just stand there window shopping Are you marching, are you marching Are you marching to someone else's drum? Some of the files in iPhoto can easily be recreated by the application if they're deleted; others are vital, and iPhoto won't work without them. The pick random block chooses a random number between these two values each time it runs.
To make the sprite glide to a random height, add another pick random block with the same values to the glide block. Recover Lost, Deleted or Formatted Data, It holds four data recovery modes that allow you to recover deleted, formatted or corrupted data and partition table from hard drive and other removable media. The size of the clone can also be randomly generated. Control is all you really need And I can't believe it I can't believe that you wouldn't free me Why don't you see me? This time we chose the Reserve link under the Genius Bar logo, and followed the step-by-step instructions in order to reserve our appointment. A quick phone call established that this referred to Apple's ProCare scheme not the AppleCare warranty extension programme. For the rest of us — at least if you live near a town with an Apple Store — we can ask a Genius. Scratch is more than just a programming language.
To do this, click on the storefront and the Looks menu. He did a quick check of the schedule on the inevitable MacBook Air to confirm that we were next, and we started. Whether it's a rogue system update or a faulty MacBook battery, there are times when we're going to have problems with our Macs. Relieved to be on familiar ground, the Genius then gave a full explanation of Spaces, together with a demonstration of how to drag application windows from one Space to another. Next, we decided our MacBook should be producing a cryptic error message with which to test the Genius' knowledge. It is available for free at.
It seems that Geniuses are extremely busy, as you can book only 15 minutes of their time at once. Why wouldn't you free me? How to break a MacBook… The next stage was deciding which problems our MacBook should have. There are several boot repair tools included in the program. At first we thought this enough for a superficial diagnosis of some problems, even an encouragement to implement quick, sloppy fixes. Lastly, place the storefront sprite in front of your other sprites. From there the sign-up process was straightforward.
He looked in the Trash, opened up the second iPhoto library, dragged the Originals folder to the Desktop, closed the Trash folder and told us we were back in business. Pardon our ignorance, we said, but wouldn't deleting the other two libraries — the ones from which he'd not recovered the Originals folder — mean that the images couldn't be retrieved? A value smaller than 100% will make the clone smaller. Since the storefront window is transparent, you'll see the flying sprites. After a minute or so, a Genius introduced himself and asked our name. He went for our Home folder, then the Pictures folder. Certainly, when our Genius was on familiar turf, the verbiage flew thick and fast, which might have confused a non-technical customer which, we would have thought, was a large proportion of those seeking support. Add a pick random block to the seconds value in the glide block.
We duly placed a humongous iMovie file on its hard disk. But are the Geniuses all they're cracked up to be? Perhaps our Genius wasn't familiar with that error message, he might not even have used Boot Camp Assistant. Now that you've randomized how long the computer waits between creating clones, randomize where the clones start and glide. To randomly select a value for the size to block, add a pick random block. Armed with a MacBook full of faults, we went, incognito, to our local Apple Store to give our allocated Genius a good mental workout. Click on the Looks menu, drag out a set size to 100 block and add it to the top of the when I start as a clone stack. Maybe we should give it another go, he suggested, then reached for the MacBook Air with the appointment list.
Problem was, something had happened during the upgrade from iPhoto '08 to iPhoto '09, and now we couldn't see any of the libraries: was there any way of getting them back? Click on the Operators menu and drag the pick random block into the value area of the wait block. He left Spaces enabled, and chose to show its icon in the menu bar, so that this novice user wouldn't accidentally invoke it again. The explanations of Spaces and Exposé were spot-on, and the final fix leaving Spaces enabled, with its menu bar item visible was good, too. At this stage we felt the need for a little preliminary reconnaissance, so we phoned the Store and asked how far in advance we'd need to book. With the pick random block added, the flying clones do not fly onto the screen over and over at the same pace. We'd explained that we wanted all our pictures back, but our Genius was about to let us have only one batch, before we intervened. The Genius launched iPhoto, to be greeted with a blank application window.
Previous impressions Before we set out, we'd asked others their impressions of Apple Store Geniuses. As for customers, we'd say that doing a little of your own research when you have technical niggles can pay huge dividends — you might even join the ranks of Apple Geniuses! In cases like this, you'll often see an error message saying: The disk cannot be partitioned because some files could not be moved, often with the recommendation that the disk should be formatted. It's a community of like-minded users who share projects, inspiration, and encouragement. Case 2: Missing iPhoto libraries Now for the big one. Choosing the Genius Bar option from the three provided, we chose a date, and then a time. He explained what an iPhoto library is, then showed us the various files and folders inside the library he'd opened. Other customers haven't been so lucky.

Genius rating: Not very satisfactory at all. Choose the smallest and largest percent values you want the clones to be.
