Forgot to add an answer, here it is a bit late: I tested Visual Studio on my Macbook with parallels, things did not run as quick as I wanted. Since it was no problem for me to get a brand new good specced windows computer from my workplace, I did that. I got a Lenovo Thinkpad W540 and things are running very well. I had to give up osx of course, but better ...

A few things you ask for are covered in the dotfiles repository of Nicolas Gallagher, that I find quite useful: https://github.com/necolas/dotfiles A lot of OS X and Apple Application settings (desktop environment behaviour, spotlight/finder/etc settings...) can be configured via command line using the defaults tool, take a look at this file from the ...

I had the same issue with my PC server and Mac client. It was easier to change the mac's behavior by creating a file at ~/Library/KeyBindings/DefaultKeyBinding.dict { "\UF729" = "moveToBeginningOfLine:"; /* Home */ "\UF72B" = "moveToEndOfLine:"; /* End */ "$\UF729" = ...

From your follow-up comment above it sounds like you don't (just) want thumbnails in Finder but instead snapshots saved to a separate file? If so, you can do this with VLC.

In my case it was good enough to comment out the fullscreen part of the extended.vim config file found under ~/.vim_runtime/vimrcs/extended.vim. Look for the if has("gui_macvim") in that file and comment out that entire block and you should be able to start MacVim in windows mode. Side note, I've also turned off the native fullscreen support for MacVim ...

Type this in the terminal: Mountain Lion and newer This may work on snow leopard but I haven't tested on it. defaults write com.apple.dock autohide-delay -float 100 && killall Dock setting the float to 100 means you can control the delay time (in seconds) for when hovering ...

In the end, we just generated SQL insert statements as strings inside the spreadsheet and just pasted them across into a text editor and saved them with an .sql extension and ran it on the server. I also found a site called sqlizer which takes spreadsheets, .csv's, .txt's, etc. and converts them into insert statements which was great. This is the site.

This is Yosemite's way of cooling your machine. Activity Monitor may show that a process named kernel_task is using a large percentage of your CPU, and during this time you may notice a lot of fan activity. This process helps manage temperature by making the CPU less available to processes that are using the CPU intensely. In other words, kernel_task ...

Yes, any archive can (potentially) contain malicious code. To build off of what 'usr-local-ΕΨΗΕΛΩΝ' said, not only can a malicious executable lurk inside of the archive, but the archive structure can be set up such that the archive is the virus (sort-of). When the archive contains a malicious executable, one usually has to enable the executable bit on ...

The files on disk are the permanent host keys, but the manual is talking about the temporary key exchange keys, which are used to achieve forward secrecy. Note that the message is talking specifically about SSHv1, which used temporary RSA keypairs regenerated on startup and every hour. Modern systems do not use SSHv1 anymore so the warning is no longer ...

I don't know the answer to changing the exact order of group recipients but I solved a partial problem.

I know this is an old thread, but can't hurt to add my issue as well. I had the same problem, and as others stated, the problem was because of failing or timing out reading a drive. I was doing some installs, mounting using a virtual drive and had forgotten to disable one after I was finished. Once I unmounted, the file dialog opened quick for me again.

I can confirm from resetting many display models in my shop that you need to complete steps 6 and 7 from your first link otherwise the previous owners data will remain. With Apple when you 'reinstall' you are only refreshing the operating system files and not actually formatting the entire drive like you would on a Windows computer. The comment by ...

Computers don't actually just forget things. They put files in a state where they are allowed to be overwritten. I am not sure why that is happening. It could be because the hard drive is full. Anyways, you can most likely find a program on the Internet that'll take it out of the overwritten state. To check your hard drives storage, simply ctrl-click on the ...

ssh access is granted to members of the com.apple.access_ssh group. This is the group that you're editing when you make access modifications to the Remote Login service through the Sharing pref pane.

If you're on 10.10.5 the 2015-006 security update is not relevant, or more precisely, is already included. It's for users still on 10.10.4 or below, down as far as Mavericks, I think.

According to the Intel product support web-site, drivers for this beast only exist for Windows and various flavors of Linux.
