OS X System Icons
Basically, this is just a note to self (since every time I want this info, I have to go hunt it down and it's hard to find) on where to find the default/internal system icons in OS X (10.6.8, currently): /System/Library/CoreServices/CoreTypes.bundle/Contents/Resources/

Ejecting a Stuck Disc in OS X
So, I popped an old burned-DVD disc into my MacMini today, but nothing happened.  The disc wasn’t mounted, DVD Player didn’t start up, nothing.  I’ve had similar things happen in the past and usually I can get the disc to eject either via iTunes or …

Return of the “Movies” Section
A long time ago, I used to have a “movies” section on this site where I kept a (manually updated) list of the movies and TV shows in my collection.  Not super useful to most visitors, I’ll admit, but I always found it nice to …

Plex Export
Stumbled upon this product to export a viewable version of my Plex library. I think I'll definitely be trying this out to bring back my old "Movies" section!

Mac to Samsung TV via HDMI and “Mode Not Supported”
I’ve had a Mac Mini hooked up in my living room and being used as an HTPC for a while now.  However, as the Mac Mini doesn’t have HDMI-out, I wasn’t able to get it set up as I really wanted, which was to have …

Gimme My Keys, Firefox!
I’ve been a long-time user of Firefox, but for a while now I’ve actually been browsing with Camino as the regular browser on my mac.  After using Firefox 3 (FF3)for a while at work and my other computers, I figured it was finally time to …

January 2008

Searching around for something to allow me to "try out" gear, I found Warcrafter, which is pretty neat. It's still "beta", but lots of nice features. And, of course, there's Ghrikk.

VeriSign’s at it Again
Well, it looks like VeriSign (aka Network Solutions) is at it yet again: being one of the scum of the internet.  This time, they’re proactively squatting on domains that people are looking up.  Check that link for details, but the short, short version is that …

Leopard’s Blue Screen of Death
Most Windows users are at least aware of the existence of the dreaded “Blue Screen of Death” (BSoD) that can occur when a particularly bad error surfaces.  Rarely do Mac OS X users encounter the same sort of thing, but apparently that isn’t the case …

Next Midrange Graphics Card
If the AnandTech review is accurate (and I've always liked their reviews), the forthcoming NVIDIA 8800 GT card may be a fantastic compromise between great performance and moderate price.

Leopard is Here
Apple’s newest version of their operating system was released yesterday: Mac OS X 10.5 “Leopard”.  I haven’t installed it yet myself, but I’m definitely looking forward to some of the features.  Probably the one drawing the most notice is “Time Machine”, Apple’s new graphical automated-backup …

Maximizing your Rogue Gear
I previously posted about consumables that should be brought to every raid.  Consumables are very important, but they’re temporary.  In addition, we need to worry about other ways to maximize our potential and that includes getting our gear enchanted and using the best gems we …

Rogue Raiding Consumables
WoW Insider pointed to a Big Bear Butt post calling for folks to make some lists of recommended elixirs, food, etc.  These are things people should be bringing to every raid so they’re prepared.  While I found some people stepping up and doing it for …

Amazon MP3
Yeah, I’m jumping on the bandwagon and talking about Amazon MP3, too.  But, hey: it’s actually pretty big news.  A real competitor to the iTunes Music Store (who, don’t get me wrong, certainly isn’t a “bad” store) that’s done by a company that—no one can …
