The PowerMac 5500 couldn't handle it. I had a BUNCH on the screen, a message came up warning that stickies was low on memory. The screenshot just appeared as all white, that was strange, but it was after I closed stickies. Too bad I don't have a screenshot, if I am really bored, I will have to try that again sometime.

Sorry I asked this question at the Mac Application Forum but nobody answer, and since this thread is about stickies...:o well here goes..:confused:

Hi,

yesterday I was trying to put in practice that lates OSX tip of the week, about translucent stickies... by pressing cmd + opt + T.

But everytime I tried to open stickies it will start bouncing and bouncing... and then nothing and when finally the sticki appeared my whole computer got slow.. and then freeze.. until I force quited stickies...

I have Main Menu, so I ran a Disk utility deleted .DS files, and reboot my computer... and again tried... and had the same issue with stikies...

any hint???

BTW I did not even tried to open more than just 1 stickie...

So do you mean that Stickies will do this (bounce in the dock and freeze) before you do anything -- i.e. when you first start the program?

Try to spotlight the file com.apple.Stickies.plist and move it from wherever it is to the desktop (but don't copy it -- remove it from the original location, and do it while the Stickies program is closed). Then open the Stickies program. If everything is back to normal, delete the copy of this file that's on the desktop.

Yes, that would be even cooler! :) Or perhaps, you could make an Apple logo out of those stickies. ;) :D

First of all THANKS, finally somebody answered.:eek:

Now, the problem is this, I click on stickies (which is on my dock btw) it will start bouncing then the fu... beach color ball :mad: will appear and everything will turn slower... not even expose works... :mad:
I'll try that com.apple.stickies.plist and let you know... thanks mkrishnan! ;)

Yay, so glad that it worked. :D

Ritalin is a stimulant medication ... if you're not ADHD, it'll make you a little jumpy. :p

My macbook has two gigs of ram. And I did while watching T.V. so it was quite easy.

Anyways, the program I have inbetween Word and System Prefrences, is called pearlyrics. It allows you do automatically download lyrics for any music played in iTunes. Acctually, I dont even know why that is there. The widget version is allways running, and it saves me from opening the program everytime I open iTunes.

The main site is down, but you can still google the program.

I think its PearLyrics.

Its a lyric retrieval app, which is no longer available due to cease-and-desist order from the music-bigwigs.

Luckily for me I got it before it went down, and use the widget form of it, and its pretty good.

OK so I thought I would be cool and try that stickies thing on my computer. Well it froze up and now everytime I run stickies, all the post it notes pop up again. How do I get it back to the way things were before this thread tempted me lol

Looks like a Stickies version of a Rorschach test.

Also bears a startling resemblence to the perimeter of my monitor.

You cant get rid of the stickes without holding down Apple+W untill they all go away.

I reccomend watching T.V. or dropping something heavy on the two buttons.

Not true.

If (and ONLY if) you have NO stickies that you actually need, you can do the following.

1) Make sure Stickies is NOT running
2) Spotlight the file stickiesdatabase (or go locate it in ~/library)
3) Delete that file.

When you restart Stickies, it will rebuild the database and all of your stickies will be gone.

Almost looks like that machine's screen is a little too sticky, and proof that surfing porn with a laptop may be a little tricky/messy.
