OS X Screensaver lock problem or Hard reset Mac every day

This have been the most annoying problem for me. I’m using Snow Leopard 10.6, but according to bug reports, it exists since Tiger 10.4.

Can’t find and install Skype (or another app) in Android Market?

I came across this issue few months ago when I bought an Android phone (HTC Wildfire) and of course I needed Skype to be there as I’m using it at work. I was aware that Skype team already released an updated Skype for Android app that supports low-resolution displays (320×240 in this case) and my device was listed on official websites as supported one. But guess what? I even couldn’t find Skype app in Market on my phone, only some chinese apps and searching it by process name returned me 404.

Xerox Phaser 3117 drivers for Mac OS X

If you have a nice GDI printer Xerox Phaser 3117, you will wonder there’s no driver for Mac OS X and Xerox website says this printer is not supported in Mac OS X 10.6.

As you know Mac OS X uses Apple’s developed CUPS (Common UNIX Printing System), so I’ve been used this printer on FreeBSD with Samsung GDI driver, but that wasn’t working via Mac’s interface. Even though there’s a special drivers build for this printer Splix, that was not working properly.
