ToDo.txt on the Web

While I was home over Thanksgiving break, I got an early graduation gift from my parents – a new 2.5 GHz i7 MacBook Pro. In the process of transferring all of my programs and documents to the new computer, I decided to look into some new programs to install, specifically a better way to keep […]

Mac OS X Only: Geektool

One of my favorite applications for OS X is GeekTool – a simple application that lets you embed files, images, and basic scripts on your desktop. At first I was only using GeekTool to provide me with the date and time, but recently I’ve expanded the number of scripts I have to include some system […]

Its been a crazy month, but one little trick I picked up was how to install the latest iPhone SDK without having the latest version of Leopard installed.

Asus P5N-7A and OS X 10.5.7

As promised in my Hackintosh post, here’s a guide for the Asus P5N-7A motherboard. Unfortunately, I don’t have any pictures of the install process, but Ufdah over at insanelymac was nice enough to let me borrow some from the original install guide – head over to there if you have any problems here. I’ll also […]

HP Mini 1000 Hackintosh

My friend recently got a HP Mini 1020NR that he said I could play with. Naturally, I immediately wanted to install Leopard on it. Some quick google searching lead me to this guide. In addition to Leopard, I wanted to keep the original Windows XP installation. In the end, the system is going to have […]

Recovering Locked Files

My Uncle dropped off his old computer last week to see if I could get some files off of it for him. He has been using the Hackintosh I built for him for roughly 2 months now, and he figured it would be a good time to migrate all of his old works files to […]
