John Siracusa’s Ars Snow Leopard Review. Siracusa’s reviews are anticipated nearly as much as the upgrades themselves. They are unquestionably the best reviews and analysis around.
OK, if you read two of my other posts on Snow Leopard (here and here) you know I’ve been having a bit of trouble getting MySQL and Python working together. To say the least. I think I finally did it. And it was probably how I should have started to begin with honestly. Build manually […]
Using Unison on the Mac. I almost installed this via MacPorts. I’m seriously looking at it for a project I’m working on.
