Link: fslogger

fslogger is a user-space program that subscribes to the same file system event notification mechanism as the Spotlight metadata server.

Once active, fslogger will wait for change notifications to arrive from the file system layer in the kernel. The various file system operations that are communicated to fslogger (and other subscribers such as Spotlight, specifically the metadata server) include:

  • File creation
  • Folder creation
  • File or folder deletion
  • Changes to the stat structure (for example, a permission change)
  • Renaming of a file or a folder
  • Content modification
  • Content exchange between two files
  • Finder information changes
  • Change of ownership

Link: Screencast codec showdown

An interesting and thorough analysis, with screenshots, in searching of the best codec to use for animated screen captures.

Preferring quality, the winner is Animation, 16-bit color, High quality. Although it exhibits artifacts, H.264 Medium is pretty good too, considering it has a tenth of the file size.

Link: Queuing up package installations

Apple Knowledge Base article on how to queue up package installations in the Mac OS X Installer. The claimed goal is to avoid multiple “Optimize System Performance,” but we all know that the real reason is to group all tasks that require user interaction in order to have time to go get a coffee.

This article has a funny tone too:

Tip: Even if Installer is already chugging away at some cool software for you (or even uncool software, Installer doesn’t care), you can double-click even more package files and Installer will add them to the same queue. Installer still won’t optimize until after the very last package is installed, and then just once.


This feature doesn’t apply to third-party installer applications that don’t use Software Update or the Mac OS X Installer. Typically such installers run only once, are for very large applications, and are on removable media (CDs, DVDs, and so forth). Such installers might entertain you with screenshots of the software in action, or tips about how to get the most out of the product, while installing and optimizing in the background.
