This isn’t just for virt-manager, but any X-Windows app you’d want to tightly integrate into your daily routine. Instead of firing up X11, then SSH’ing to your VM box and typing out virt-manager (insane!) you can script X11 to do everything with 1 mouse click. I have it in my Dock, and Launchbar also recognizes it as an app. tell application "Finder" launch application "X11" end tell set results to do shell script “ssh -X haddad-vmserver ‘virt-manager’”
- I made a post back in December regarding my MacBook Air and a battery life issue. About 2 weeks ago, I brought the Air back to the Apple store again, despite being completely shot down the first time. I had a 12:30 appointment, got there right at 12:30, but no one talked to me for a few minutes, so by the time I got someone’s attention, I was informed since I was late, they cancelled my appointment.
- To get a quick idea of what ports you have open on your local box, you can use nmap. ~ jhaddad$ nmap localhost Starting Nmap 5.00 ( http://nmap.org ) at 2010-01-05 11:06 PST Interesting ports on localhost (127.0.0.1): Not shown: 499 closed ports, 492 filtered ports PORT STATE SERVICE 80/tcp open http 88/tcp open kerberos-sec 548/tcp open afp 631/tcp open ipp 3306/tcp open mysql 3325/tcp open unknown 5900/tcp open vnc 9000/tcp open cslistener 10000/tcp open snet-sensor-mgmt
- I bought a MacBook Air in June this year, refurbished. I didn’t really use it a lot for day to day work, and when I didn’t use it I was charging it. It was very convenient - it weighs practically nothing and has almost no impact on me while traveling. When I cut back on using it, I noticed a few things. When I’d leave it unplugged for a few days, the battery would be dead.

- PHP Quick Profiler This looks like a pretty cool tool to get a good idea of what’s going on in your PHP script without having to install tools like XDebug and Webgrind / KCacheGrind. Apple files patent for browser specific volume I’m not sure how this is anything new, tons of applications have their own volume setting. Quicktime, VLC, Windows Media Player. Chris DeWolfe bails as MySpace CEO Doesn’t seem like such a bad idea to get out now.
- The Mac Mini is now capable of running dual monitors. This, to me, is huge. It’s a machine that comes in a decent price that developers are used to, while allowing us to keep our dignity and use our own monitors. A few months ago, I bought a triplehead2go, and I ran 3 20 inch monitors. Then I got greedy, and decided to step it up to 2 26” screens (the LG W2600 to be exact).
- There’s a lot of people who don’t seem to like the genius feature of iTunes. In fact, quite a few seem to hate it. The complaints vary. I’m still confused by this complaint by my friend David. He wants iTunes to recognize band names after he’s changed them. If a band has a name, why should iTunes still recognize the band name after you’ve changed it? Of course, there’s always things that can be improved.
- Might as well list the latest Apple stuff they’re announcing today. Games: Interesting. I’ve always been a pacman fan. They will be starting with the following: Bejeweled, Cubis 2, Mahjong, Mini golf, pac man, tetris, texas holdem, vortex, and zuma. Glad they’re compatible with my 5th gen iPod. iTunes 7: According to iLounge, iTunes will give you cover art for free if you are missing cover art. That’s pretty sweet, since most of my music was ripped off of CDs.
