    Afloat Mac on El Capitan, how I made it work

    I love the Afloat Mac app, it’s a simple little app that does one thing well. Until the last couple of updates to Mac OSX that is. With the most recent update, it seems to not work at all, but that’s not the case if you know the right tweaks to make to your system.…

  • Problems with os x Yosemite Mail forgetting settings

    I’ve often had problems with os x Yosemite Mail forgetting settings I’ve set in the Accounts window. The most common being whether secure authentication is on or off. Caution: Before making these changes be aware of the possible consequences of sending your password insecurely. You might do alright at home, but anyone sniffing packets (and I don’t…

  • Apps unsupported by Lion (OS X 10.7) as I find them [update x2]

    Hopefully you’ve made the switch to Lion. Although I wasn’t impressed initially, I really do like the extra features and am putting them to good use. However, you might be wondering if some of your old apps will still work. Power PC apps are no longer supported, but if you’re like me, you don’t know…

  • OSX Lion (10.7) Breaks Git, the Power PC is dead, and my Bin commands are gone

    Git users, beware! For those that don’t know, git is version management software that is run in the terminal, facilitating synchronization, deployment and version management of files for web developers. After my install… Git was no where to be found. Thankfully a fresh install of Git was all it took to get back up and…

  • OSX Lion (10.7) out of the gate [Review in progress][update:2]

    Like every good Apple fan boy, I can’t help but stay up to date with the latest hardware and software. I will write an update with my own observations on the Lion OS. For the price ($29.99) I don’t think you can go wrong. I’ll spend weeks finding all the new features and cursing at…
