WordPress Upgrade

I am about to upgrade my 1.5.x version of WordPress to the latest shiny 2.0.6 release. This might break things, at least in the short term. Edit: Excellent. The world has not ended, and everything seems peachy-keen. Now, to generate some actual content in the new year …

Super-fast Mail Act-On

If you use Mail Act-On to apply filters to your mail within Apple’s Mail.app, and you use one of your rules much more than any other, here’s a quick tip: assign the trigger key to the same key you use to invoke Mail Act-On. A quick double-tap of your chosen key can file mail 1.8 […]

iTunes 7 and Shared Libraries

Users with multiple computers should be aware that Library Sharing between iTunes 7 and previous versions is not enabled. I have three primary computers in my home; two running OS X Tiger and one running Windows XP. My main music library is on a USB hard drive connected to my desktop computer, and on my […]

GenCon Indy 2006

GenCon 2006 was tons of awesome. In brief: FanPro had our largest booth ever, shared with Iron Wind Metals, and we also had a couple of the Virtual World Entertainment BattleTech pods there. We got to talk to a ton of fans, and ran a successful instance of our “Booth Runner” game for the second […]

Work Around that Annoying iChat Pause

Recent versions of iChat automatically pause your voice [and video] chat sessions if you start a file transfer, for the duration of the entire transfer.

So I took some other class, which probably had an educational value about as dubious as French. Now, I look at totally cool-looking french RPGs like Vermine and go “Man, […]

MacZOT.com and SubEthaEdit

BLOGZOT 2.0 on MacZOT.com is some wacky promotion where, if enough people blog about SubEthaEdit from CodingMonkeys. MacZOT and TheCodingMonkeys will award $105,000 in Mac software to bloggers. I’ve not used SubEthaEdit, but from what I know about it, it has some really great collaboration features, but is also a fine text editor if you […]

Crash Dieting OS X Mail Attachments

Mail.app’s data takes up too much space on my hard drive. I know why — I’m an email packrat. I have mail dating back to 1997 on my other computer, and a lot of that mail includes attachments, because I’m constantly sending them: drafts for articles, layout drafts, art sketches, random pictures of last night’s […]
