Dealing with OS X resource forks in samba

Figured I’d put up a quick post. I’ve been growing more and more annoyed with OS X creating resource forks to some of my mapped samba drives, and after searching high and low for a method of disabling resource fork creation on network drives, I’ve effectively come up empty handed. [...]

Boxee Blog » a Boxee Box is coming!

I happened across this little tidbit as I was scrolling through my RSS feeds.  I’ve been so busy lately, I haven’t even had a chance to read half of the entries in my feed reader (most days now I’ve been just saying mark all as read).  But this one caught my eye.  Apparently Box[...]

Microsoft ads… someone’s missing the boat

Okay, so I’ve seen a number of ads promoting both Vista and Low-cost PCs coming out of Redmond recently.  Not that I watch much TV, so either they’re just being targeted to the TV I do watch, or they’re on all the time, all over the place. Now that said, I am a Apple fanboy, [&hel[...]

iPhone / iPod SDK

So, figured I’d revive my blog a bit with a post about the iPhone / iPod SDK that Apple just released. I signed up to receive their free SDK package, so I could do some testing and messing around with the SDK, just to see what sorta stuff I could build. Just received their response […][...]

iPhone coming to Canada

So, I’ve been waiting a good long time for the iPhone to make it up here, and the fairly small amount of advertising Apple has done, leading up to the iPhone launch in Canada is fairly dismal. This morning, however, I was pointed to the Apple website, only to find that they have an iPhone [&he[...]

New Mac Trojan OSX.RSPlug.A

Okay, so there’s a Torjan out there in the wild now for the Mac… and everyone’s up in arms about it. All the anti-mac people out there are complaining saying ouuu, look, mac’s aren’t secure anymore. Unfortunately, they seem to have forgotten to mention that you have to [...]

Time Machine Backup

Okay, so after a few days of messing around, and reading various forums, I happened across a method of setting up Apple’s Time Machine software to work on my Ubuntu network share. I just wanted to document here for anyone else, who may have a hard time coming up with a solution. I’ll sta[...]

Leopard First Impressions

So, after a few days on Apple’s newest operating system, I believe I know have a more or less solid foundation on which to base an opinion. And that opinion is, OS X Leopard is definately a step in the right direction. right off the top, it is significantly more polished and seems like a [&hel[...]

Leopard on the Horizon

So, I’m not the only one, there are a lot of excited people around waiting patiently for their copy of Leopard to arrive, myself included. I can’t honestly remember being this excited for an OS upgrade ever. The Apple community sure is different from the Microsoft one, in that people ten[...]

Apple enabling online support chatting?

I’m not usually one to notice such things, but I happened to be hunting around the Apple website for someone I could rant at regarding Canadians and iPhones. I’d just love to know why we don’t have iPhones up here in Canada. I mean, we are connected to the US by one of the largest [...]
