Time Machine Waiting for Index to Be Ready

My Time Machine backup (on OS X 10.7) was stuck on Waiting for index to be ready (100) for a long time (it kept logging this once every minute for 20 minutes). I ended up killing the mds process. I...

Installer Redmine sur Mac OS X 10.6: La façon correcte

Oui, c'est un titre plutôt prétentieux étant donné que c'est la première fois que je réussis à installer une application Rails, et non, cela ne me dérange pas. C'était agréable comme un coup de pied au cul alors je dois documenter la façon dont j'y suis parvenu et cela pourrait rendre service à d'autres, alors si ça vous dérange, lisez-le comme 'la façon correcte pour moi'.

Installing Redmine on Mac OS X 10.6: The Correct Way

Yes, it’s a rather pretentious title, considering that it’s my first time succeeding at installing a Rails application, and no, I don’t care. It was a pain in the ass so I need to document how I did it, and it might help other people, so if it really bothers you, read it as ‘the correct way for me’.

Fractal Linking Cascade about Java

John Gruber linked to two articles by Paul Kim and Terrence Talbot about Java, following Steve Jobs' remark about it not being worth building into the iPhone. I foolishly went to read them, not realising that I was being caught into a Fractal Linking Cascade, ending in my reading of five rather long articles on the subject. I don't regret it, though, because they were really interesting.

iWeb without .Mac

For those who are worried that Apple’s new iWeb would only work with a .Mac account, one can read in a footnote on the iWeb web page that: iWeb publishing requires Internet and webserver access (.Mac recommended). I take that...

Mac OS X 10.4.3

My top five anticipated features in Mac OS X 10.4.3: iChat preferences now allow you to display emoticons (such as a smiley face) as text (such as “:-)”) instead of as a graphic. Great for cross-coding monkeys communication. .Mac members...
