Stuff about Apple and Macintosh computers

MacSaberDo you have one of those fancy new Apple laptops that have the Sudden Motion Sensor? You know, that thing that is suppose to park the hard drive heads if you drop it? Well then you have to check this out.

MacSaber is a program which will make your mac sound like a light saber. Go ahead. Wave it around like a lunatic. If you have one of the new backlit keyboards, the keyboard even lights up when it "hits" something, mimicking the flash of light that shines when two light sabers touch.

This is just too cool.

MacStumbler and SSHKeychain (Universal)

Tuesday, March 28, 2006 by darco

445px-Universal_Binary_Logo I was going through my Applications folder on my MacBook Pro last night looking to replace old PowerPC versions with newer Universal Binary builds. I was saddened to find that a handful of my apps did not yet have Universal Binary counterparts. SSHKeychain 0.7.1 worked fine, but was a little slow to start up, but MacStumbler 0.75b didn't work at all. Well, after a night of insomnia I have created Universal Binaries for both of these apps. Enjoy.

NOTE: I just fixed the weird negative signal strength issue. Try re-downloading the file above and giving it a try.

MacBook Pro

mbp_about A few days ago, I got myself a shiny new 2.0GHz MacBook Pro. It is a wonderful machine. I'll elaborate more on the details on how I got this machine later, but it's not particularly interesting.

Yesterday I upgraded it to 2 gigabytes of DDR2 RAM, making this laptop the most RAM endowed machine I have had the pleasure of working on. It is quite likely that this laptop is now the most powerful machine I own. Yum.

Gtk+ Native MacOS X

Thursday, October 6, 2005 by darco

Finally some brave soul has taken on the task that so many have abandoned... Gtk+ has now been natively ported to MacOS X! This means that you can expect a native MacOS X version of Synfig Studio at some point soon after I release it.

Speaking of releases, expect Synfig to be released next week by the end of the month*. It may be a little bit of time before the native MacOS X version is ready, but it will happen.

(*) I've changed my moving schedule around so this makes things a bit more uncertain.
