I brought home my Motorola v600 last night and attempted to set it up with my Mac. I've waited quite a while for this phone, so I was quite eager. Unfortunately, Mac OS X 10.3.3 and iSync 1.4 greeted my eagerness with this chilling reminder that not all is always well: Hrmph. Scott pointed me […]

iTunes Arrows

Jeff pointed this out to me: defaults write invertStoreLinks -bool YES Those little arrows in iTunes now take you to your own browser. You can hold down the option key to go to the iTMS. Très frais!

iTunes 4.5

iTunes 4.5 has been released, and the world rejoiced. "Hey, it's not even a Tuesday!" the throngs were heard to shout. The throngs can shove it, and the rumor sites can shove it too, given their near-complete lack of foresight on this one! Let's take a jaunt through the new features, shall we? Zeroth off, […]

Icon Cache

Why does Mac OS X's icon cache so easily get screwed up? The thing can't go five hours without showing hard disk icons on .txt files, Photoshop icons on .c files, and in the case below, three different icons on three different files. What's worse, the only way to fix it seems to be to […]


Wowee. I've gotta get my hands on Motion sometime soon. $300? Says Apple to Adobe: screw you hippies!

By the By

By the way, there may or may not be a slight bump in "Apple coverage" here in the coming weeks given that they're no longer my employer. Ahhhh, the beach! How I missed thee!

GMail: “Screw You, Safari!”

Uhm: Gmail does not currently support your browser. See browser requirements for Gmail or sign in anyway. Right.

Hey hey, it's my MacAddict review of Consultant 2.21! Blast from the past. I had to look this up for one reason or another today and thought I might link to it here to save myself the trouble at a later time. Other reviews of mine (they don't list features on their Web site, unfortunately): […]

Happy 28th, Apple

It's been exactly one year since, uhhh, last year, and that means that Apple is now 28. Founded on April 1, 1976 by Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, and Ronald Wayne, Apple has shipped nearly as many mini iPods as it is years old today! Happy Birthday, ya big fruit.

Some iTunes Stats

As of right now, I have 9235 songs, 35304 listens, 104.9 days of music, 3.8 listens/song, and my favorite song is "Up!" by Shania Twain. These statistics are courtesy of iTunes PlayStats. I've long wanted to create an entire application that analyzed people's playlists, showed them charts and graphs of their genres, which artists they […]

Scripting Excel via PHP

Here's what I need to do daily: Look up data in a MySQL database from a PHP script. Insert that data into an Excel template. Email the Excel template. I can send a .xls file via email the same way I send a vCard, but only the kind you can create by tab-delimiting text and […]

Postfix and PHP

I'm attempting to send email via PHP using Mac OS X 10.3's built in mailserver (postfix). I've followed the directions here and received no errors in setting up postfix. PHP generates no errors in sending the email. However, the email is never received. Does anyone have any ideas what steps I might take next? Most […]

iPhoto Grrrr

Today I attempted - I kid you not - uploading an iPhoto album twenty times to my .Mac account. Each time between one and five pictures would not show up at all. The definition of insanity is repeating the same thing and expecting a different result. I suppose I was insane 19 times today. Eventually, […]

Black Pro Keyboard

Today I swapped out my existing black pro keyboard for one I found in my closet. Typing on this thing is as close to typing nirvana as I can dream possible. It's soft yet responsive. Quiet. It's great. What more could I ask for from a keyboard? The old one is great too - but […]

Disabled Go Menu Items

For some time now my Go menu has looked like this: I have no idea why the "iDisk" and "Network" menu items are disabled. My permissions are correct. My iDisk is permanently mounted and synchronized, but it'd be nice to be able to choose "Someone Else's Public Folder" (or whatever it's called). What gives? How […]
