Looks like Bob is really Bobbi

May 23rd, 2017

We found this Fischer’s Lutino lovebird in our back yard and invited him in. We think he escaped from his cage by lifting up the door because he goes around the cage bobbing his head as he tries to lift the bars. The doors are all zip-tied now, but he still thinks he can get out.

It turns out that he is really a she, as you can see in this video when she presents to our cockatiel.

Remove Password on PDF file.

My accountant sent me my tax returns as password protected PDF files. There isn’t any way to get them out of Adobe Acrobat Reader without the password. There are lots of on-line solutions, but that means giving someone else access to your data. There are also programs that you can download, but it’s hard to know if you can trust them. Instead just drop your PDF onto Safari. Enter the password, then use File –> Print to print to PDF.

If you want to add a new password, open the file in Preview and then use the Export as PDF command. Click on the Show Details button and check the box for encryption. You can add your own password here. The encrypted files will open in Reader and Preview.
