24″ LED Cinema Display Frustrations

Got into work this morning, and noticed something odd, so I thought I would recount it here in case anyone else is having this problem (as it took a lot of investigation to get it all sorted out). On Friday last week, I swapped out my Macbook Pro 15″ for a new Macbook Pro 15″, […][...]

Ubuntu 8.04 iSCSI shutdown

Just a quick post today – I ran into the same issue many many other people seem to have, that being connecting to an iSCSI target in Ubuntu 8.04 means you cannot cleanly shut-down your system as it will hang during the shutdown process. I’ve been doing a little bit of research as to why [...]

PHP strangeness

So, I just encountered a very strange issue with PHP’s FTP function and thought I’d take a quick sec to write about the problem, in case anyone else is having it. Essentially we have a module in our application that moves a few files around via FTP.  Now this works fine on some serv[...]

Finally a fix for textmate

So, I have been struggling the past few weeks with Textmate and it being stupid slow on certain projects that contain a ton of files. Apparently every time Textmate gets focus, it re-scans the entire project folder for changed files – which really sucks if you’re alt-tabbing back and for[...]
