๐Ÿ“Œ Fleetsmith: Secure, cloud-based Mac management via G Suite

Looks like a great alternative to Casper. #

๐Ÿ“Œ groob/moroz: Moroz is a Santa server #
๐Ÿ“Œ Paw โ€“ The ultimate REST client for Mac #
๐Ÿ“Œ Platypus | Sveinbjorn Thordarson

Neatโ€”turns shell scripts (anything with a #!) into a .app. Sorta like dataclips for shell scripts. #

๐Ÿ“Œ How to Make Your Entire Home AirPlay-Compatible #
๐Ÿ“Œ MarcoPolo - Context-aware computing for Mac OS X

Nifty tool: gather โ€œlocation evidenceโ€ (wifi network names, attached peripherals, etc.) and use that infer location (โ€œhomeโ€, โ€œworkโ€, etc.). Iโ€™m using this to automatically kick off backups and such when arriving home (where my NAS is) and at work (where I have a fast connection to S3). #

๐Ÿ“Œ Online Backup for Mac | Arq | Haystack Software

The missing piece in my backup strategy, I think. #

๐Ÿ“Œ Kenneth Ballenegger โ€” I Can Crack Your App With Just A Shell (And How To Stop Me)

Locks are for honest people. #

๐Ÿ“Œ Ephemera: The Mac tool for Instapaper & ebook reader enthusiasts

Two-way Instapaper/Kindle sync. Must try. #

๐Ÿ“Œ Connected Flow - Viewfinder: Flickr search tool

Download photos from Flickr directly into Keynote. This is going to save me mad time. #

๐Ÿ“Œ mxcl's homebrew at masterbrew - GitHub

Looks like a perfect middle ground between the Scylla of MacPorts/Fink and the Charybdis of building everything by hand. Next OSX box I set up is going to use homebrew. #

๐Ÿ“Œ Time Warp

Interesting idea: take your Time Machine backups and sync โ€™em to Amazon S3. Iโ€™ve been essentially doing the same thing by hand, but this looks much slicker. Worth a try, I think. #

๐Ÿ“Œ MacBook Pro unresponsive keyboard & trackpad solution โ€” Jason Robb

Totally ghetto, but my MBP is back to life! Albeit with a business card shoved in the battery case, but... alive nonetheless. Just hope it lasts long enough to get me back to the states for repair. #

๐Ÿ“Œ The Omni Group - OmniGraphSketcher

Whoa, a graphing tool from Omni. I donโ€™t know what Iโ€™d do without OmniGraffle, and I make graphs a lot more than diagrams... time to ready the credit card! #

๐Ÿ“Œ Mac OS X Security Update 2009-001 might break your Perl (CPAN)

Apple fucked up Perl in the 2009-001 security update. Way to go, guys. #

๐Ÿ“Œ Switching from scripting languages to Objective C and iPhone: useful libraries :: Hackdiary

Iโ€™ve come across some of these myself, but others (GTMHTTPFetcher!) are news to me. #

๐Ÿ“Œ Official Google Mac Blog: Search Without Effort: The Quick Search Box

This is what the creator of QuickSilver has been working on at Google. Pretty rudimentary right now, but Iโ€™m excited to see where it goes. #

๐Ÿ“Œ tunnelblick - Google Code

Super-simple OpenVPN client for Mac OS X. Just throw OpenVPN configs in ~/Library/openvpn and then connect with the menubar item. Awesome. #

๐Ÿ“Œ Mock It!: An lxml you can bank on

Finally! easy_install staticlxml and done. #

๐Ÿ“Œ Bare Bones Software | BBEdit 9.0 Release Notes #
๐Ÿ“Œ Use Tabs in Textmate for Files Opened Via Transmit by Stuart Colville

Brilliant little hack. The (lack of) Transmit/Textmate integration is theo nly part of my workflow I hate; this fixes it. #

๐Ÿ“Œ Wx

Serious weather nerdery. #

๐Ÿ“Œ Theocacao: Preview of Versions SVN Client

Scott previews โ€œVersionsโ€โ€”a native Mav SVN client. Looks fantastic, event to a command-line weenie like me. #

๐Ÿ“Œ Secrets: index

Brilliantโ€”a preference pane for โ€œsecretโ€ system settings that anyone can contribute to. #

๐Ÿ“Œ Vara Software : ScreenFlow

Really hot-looking screen capture/screencast software. $100, but probably worth it for anyone who does a bunch of screencasts. #

๐Ÿ“Œ Changes Beta

An interesting visual diff tool along the lines of FileMerge or kdiff3. Iโ€™ve been more than happy with FileMerge, but Changes is probably worth a look. #

๐Ÿ“Œ Coding Horror: Why Doesn't Anyone Give a Crap About Freedom Zero?

โ€œSo letโ€™s be completely clear: when you buy a new Mac, youโ€™re buying a giant hardware dongle that allows you to run OS X software.โ€ Cute. #

๐Ÿ“Œ Peggle for Mac

If youโ€™d like to not get any work done for the rest of 2007, by all means download this game (newly available for the Mac). #

๐Ÿ“Œ macosxhints.com - 10.5: Get rid of the translucent menu bar

Yay! #

๐Ÿ“Œ Mac Forums - View Single Post - No Airdisk (Airport) Time Machine Backups!

Gotta try this when I get home. #
