I find it easier to focus on a project if I dedicate an entire user account to it. I fast-user-switch between work mode (documents and programs I'd rather not close) and entertainment mode (user account holding tv shows, movies, music, which is hooked up to my tv in the living room).
The issue I've now run into is preferences. Because I'm constantly tweaking keyboard shortcuts, etc. in both accounts, the two users are never really in sync. Searching around I uncovered this guide for symlinking an iTunes library:
1) copy the master iTunes folder to the /Users/Shared directory 2) symlink each user's iTunes directory to the shared one 3) for each user, set the iTunes library destination to the shared on 4) install WinSwitch 5) create a tiny program that chmod's the iTunes directory to 777 recursively 6) run this program on each FUS with WinSwitch 7) run this program on login of each user
Is this a good way to manage the ~/Library folder? Is it fine to have both user accounts accessing the same files at the same time?
Thanks for your help.
