I've been using a computer since before I could read, and programming since I was 10. I graduated NYU with a BFA in Computer Science (and film, how I started out in NYU). I've been working part-time doing in-house development for a commodities company since high school, and have now been working at the same company full-time for almost a year after graduating NYU. I got started developing with Delphi (1.0!), then picked up C, then C++, then C#.Net, then Java (with a more than healthy dose of x86 Assembler along the way). At home I have a Mac Pro (2,1) 8-Core, a MacBook Air, and a MacBook all on Snow Leopard (10.6), and an old beige PowerMac G3 still chugging along on, maxed out on Jaguar (10.2).

comment Can you browse a UNC path using a command line environment without mapping it to a network drive?
Using pushd creates a drive mapping to the network share and then changes into a path relative to the share it creates. popd disconnects the share.

comment How do I change the Windows7 LAN proxy config from the command line?
But then, it seems you need to open up the LAN Settings window and close it for it to take effect...

@Mark According to a WD support article, the drive should be bootable on an Intel Mac through FireWire: wdc.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/1787/~/…

comment Is Automator's “Filter Finder Items” action broken?
That was definitely the piece of missing information. That never even occurred to me. I have to wonder, though, why there isn't a way to filter a selection that isn't Spotlight-indexed.
