Mac OS X

warning: Creating default object from empty value in /home/phecht/public_html/ado/modules/taxonomy/taxonomy.pages.inc on line 33.

Mac OS X crashing Firefox, Chrome and Safari

While the browser lock ups that have happened since around April 19th, 2011 might not be solved by this, I haven't had a problem since I ran these 2 commands in terminal:

mv ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.systemuiserver.plist fu.com.apple.systemuiserver.plist.fu

sudo mv /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.audio.coreaudiod.plist fu.com.apple.audio.coreaudiod.plist.fu

I moved the files, but the post I read said to just delete them.

Now I have looked and the /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/com.apple.audio.coreaudiod.plist is still gone.

The ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.systemuiserver.plist is back. It is now 82 bytes instead of 653.

This whole experience has made me realize that both Mac and Windows are unstable. Ubuntu is as well. But at least it is free!

I got it from this web page: http://problemresolved.wordpress.com/2009/09/12/slow-snow-leopard/

Xcode prec-compiled headers cache and branching

http://www.stevestreeting.com/2007/09/19/branches-and-precompiled-header... shows why we should configure each project to have a different path than the defaults.

XCode and Version Control Folder

If you do this:
defaults write com.apple.InterfaceBuilder \
VersionControlDirectory "(Build, CVS, .svn)"

it will let XCode know to ignore these folders from a SCM perspective.

Getting $PATH line by line

echo $PATH | tr ':' '\n' will list the $PATH nicely.

So will this:
echo $PATH | sed "s/:/\\
> /g"

That is hitting return and getting the ">" that is not typed in.

Screen capture for the Mac.

http://www.jingproject.com/ is not a product but a project. It seems much like the windows only "snag it". Jing Project is free until it becomes a real product.

This is another one: http://www.ambrosiasw.com/utilities/snapzprox/ for $69
http://www.shinywhitebox.com/home/home.html for $20

Nice ISP in Box page

Updated! http://diymacserver.com/ is the updated site.

While we all want to have straight forward instructions on getting an Apache, MySQL and PHP set up on your mac, even a mini. It has been very valuable to me. Many recipes out there, this one hasn't left me re-configuring over and over again.

Mac OS X Lepoard Server had some issues

http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=1477930&tstart=0
According to this link, Mac OS X Server 10.5.x is junk. 10.4.x seems "Rock Solid". Personally, I am not entirely sure what the server software gets you.

HTML Help (CHM) Tools and Information

Do you want to read a Microsoft Help file (CHM) on your mac? Or maybe even a linux box? Use this:
CHM lib0.38 it was mentioned on Mac Geeky: Converting CHM Files to Something ... Useful. It really does work.

Operating Systems

Most people still use Windows. A few use a Mac. Fewer still use Linux.

VMWare Fusion does not allow 10.5 OS X to be installed, OS X Server 10.5 can be virtualized.
