Blants (noun) the rants of a blogger

  1. My new love – a Macbook Air 11″ i7 with 256GB of SSD

    November 28, 2011 by The Man

    Wowza this machine is amazing, just ran Aperture and imported 10Gb of MRAW files from a Canon 7D and it ran like a dream, fast – yes the processor all 4 of them maxed out but I was screen recording as well. More to follow when I have given it a thorough going over.

  2. OSX Trash stuck and how to fix

    May 31, 2011 by The Man

    If you have something stuck in the trash that will just not delete when you empty it then simply

    sudo rm -rf ~/.Trash/*

    and it should all be gone.

  3. Stop Apache serving .DS_Store files – or any files

    May 19, 2011 by The Man

    If you view or copy files from a Mac to a webserver it will place .DS_Store files in that directory. To fix add in your http.conf or .htaccess file

        Order allow,deny
        Deny from all
        Satisfy All

    Then restart Apache for this to kick in.

  4. Mac App Rejection….

    January 1, 2011 by The Man

    Bummer just been rejected for “2.30 Apps that do not comply with the Mac OS X File System documentation will be rejected”

    “The application is creating files or writing to ~/Library/Application Support/Depicus/…. Appropriate app-identifiers are ‘WakeOnLan’, ‘com.depicus.osx.wakeonlan’ and your name”

    Well have filed an appeal so lets see how we get on but looks like I won’t make it into the App Store for launch.

    UPDATE WE WON – Wake on Lan will be in the Mac App Store wheeeeeeeheeee

  5. Wake On Lan for OSX

    October 28, 2010 by The Man

    Well I managed to port over the Wake on Lan for iPhone to OSX today. Might think about poping it on the new mac store !!! Just need to tidy up and get ready to make available on my main site.
