Nice tip at TUAW to auto-refresh any website.
Enable keychain access menu which also has a lockscreen menu item that turns off the monitor.
Turn on the new optional dock list view. Not really my thing. I like seeing all my apps at a glance but some of you might find it interesting.
Distribute is available for Python 3. Distribute is a fork of SetupTools (aka easy_install). Hopefully more packages will become available now. As I wrote there are too many I depend upon not yet available.
I’ve had some manipulation of Address Book I’ve had to do the past few days. So I’ll be presenting a few Address Book scripts I’ve found useful. This one takes some selected Address Book contacts and enters them into a Numbers spreadsheet. It’s fairly simple and in the past I normally would have used Excel [...]
Managing Services in Snow Leopard. I’m slowly moving my scripts to Services. It works much better than my current method using iKey menus. This is a pretty good tutorial for using Services efficiently.
Edit compiled nib files in Snow Leopard
The Breakfast Machine. A Rube Goldberg like machine for making breakfast. I love machines like this.
There have been a ton of tablet rumors the past year. I’ve not paid them much mind because I think a tablet a bad idea. I think it’ll appeal to a very small group and I think the only reason the Netbooks have done well is because they are ridiculously cheap. Unlike the iPhone which [...]
Cool bit of info I picked up at Ars. We all know the standard way of modifying paths. In your .bash_profile you probably have a line like this: export PATH=/opt/local/bin:/opt/local/sbin:$HOME/bin:$PATH:/usr/local/bin:/ export MANPATH=`/usr/bin/manpath` export MANPATH=/opt/local/share/man:$MANPATH Well apparently starting with Leopard and continuing with Snow Leopard there are two directories where you can put text files with [...]
I had a need today to extract a bunch of addresses from Address Book as nicely formatted text to email. I’ve done hints like this before, but with some of the changes to Snow Leopard I had to modify them slightly. Since I suspect this is something many people need to do I thought I’d [...]
Change the Finder to report in base 2 instead of base 10. Me, I prefer base 10 and just wish everyone would be clear with units. (i.e. distinguish between metric magnitudes and base 2 magnitudes)
Apple dictated Light Peak to Intel. aka yet an other “all in one connector.” I like the idea but I have a drawer full of various connectors Apple embraced that no one else did. Usually you ended up needing expensive adaptors to plug third party monitors and so forth into your computer. I love my [...]
I’m hearing that GDB7 will have several features that Apple had initially promised back two years ago for Leopard and then unexpectedly (and without comment) dropped. (See this GNU post on GDB for instance) These features include stepping backwards through your code’s execution. If so, one hopes that this newer version of GDB will swiftly [...]keep looking »
