MacPorts, Homebrew and Mountain Lion

The inevitable happened today. Mountain Lion was installed in a couple of different places. Unfortunately one of those places was at work and on a development machine before we had a chance to test out Mountain Lion compatability. Predictably, issues arose. Not surprisingly, at least to me, Homebrew has the biggest issue, and an issue […]

AppleScript to Detect Displays on Snow Leopard

One of the things about having a laptop and continually connecting and disconnecting from an external display is having to tell the system to detect the external (and sometimes the internal) display so that both displays are running. Simply detecting displays doesn’t seem to be an easily scriptable system event. I finally got an AppleScript […]

Blinking question mark on OS X Boot? Don’t panic just yet.

My MacBook Pro has been acting up again lately. Crashes, stalls, and overall wacky goodness. Yesterday I pulled it out of my bag after getting home and although I had put it to sleep, and confirmed that it was asleep before packing it away, it had crashed on the way home. When I restarted it […]

Easy camera tethering with OS X 10.6

Little niceties keep popping up in OS X 10.6, aka Snow Leopard. For example: its super easy now to tether a digital camera and use your Mac as a remote for the camera. Handy if you want to do a little live shooting action for whatever reason. The secret lies in the Image Capture application […]

Flickr Image URLs to BBCode in OS X 10.6 and Automator

S’okay – I’ve been doing one thing or another in BBCode since, well, BBCode came out. At one point I even wrote my own expanded parser. But the time involved in posting flickr […]

Announcing the WordPress TextMate Bundle

As the name implies this is a TextMate bundle to assist with WordPress development. Where I work we’re on WordPress almost every day doing this or that and it gets pretty tedious to not only remember the schizophrenia that is PHP syntax, but the schizophrenia that is my own code as well as the schizophrenia […]

Client side pre- and post-svn hooks with Unix Aliases

Its probably nothing new but I came up with a way to do client side post- or pre-svn actions. Its nothing revolutionary but has already come in handy. The script is *nix only (though I don’t see why the same process wouldn’t work on Windows if it supports command line aliases like *nix does). I […]

Line In Passthrough in OS X

I was really kind of upset today to find out that I couldn’t easily pass audio through from my line in to the built in speakers on my PowerBook. I was at work and plugging away in the Lab which means I’m working on my Mac since there is no outside access to the lab […]
