I use Apple hardware and Mac OS X since the age of dawn but work doing Android development using Eclipse Intellij-IDEA. Used to be a .NET/C# guy.

I do some Objective-C when time permits (never lately) and always experiment in Xcode when it's not crashing.

Contrary to popular belief, I am not The Crow like my picture might suggest :)

I have lived in the sunny Spain near Madrid for over eleven years, but now I live in San Francisco, CA.

I'm currently working for 8tracks.com where I do mobile development.

comment Ubuntu-style Multiple Desktops for Mac OS X
Ivo, i've been on StackOverflow since it was alpha, I do know about this, but I seriously believe that the link you provided, doesn't fully apply here. I'm not linking to a reply. i'm not linking to a blog. I'm linking to a company. When/if that company no longer exists, then the whole answer won't be useful anyway.

comment Why does Chrome on Windows 7 not show certain Unicode characters to me?
For what is worth, that key is "ESC" in Mac OS X.

comment Disabling mouse acceleration in Mac OS X
@aib I know all the OSses use different algorithms and therefore the response is not the same, but I don't find it particularly hard to switch from one to the other; if anything I find Windows a little bit awkward to move. What I do believe is that one gets used after days of practice. Muscle memory is hard to beat, but not impossible. In any case, I really don't use the mouse that much these days. Launchbar and shortcuts are my mouse ;)

comment Disabling mouse acceleration in Mac OS X
@aib I find it interesting how you keep saying "ridiculous to have to pay money to be able to use a mouse". Having used Windows since 3.0 and OS X since 10.0 (plus System 7, 8 and 9) and a varieties of Linuxes and BSD, I have yet to find a mouse that requires me to pay something extra… they all work out of the box. Your rant about having to pay is incorrectly expressed. That'd be the same if I complained about XX feature of YY operating system and complaining that it's unusable and that I have to pay for it to be changed.

@aib You don't have to buy software to use a mouse, you just want to alter the way the mouse works.

comment Deleting Time Machine in Mac OS X 10.6.4
If you are logged in as root and it gives you operation not allowed, then there’s some other error. Could be physical or logical in the drive/volume that holds the TimeMachine backup. As an alternative, boot from the install DVD, start DISK utility and try performing verify/repair on the volume that has time machine. See if it fixes something.

But did you log AS root. In that case sudo won’t be necessary. That’s the idea of enabling root in the first place. Sudo doesn’t transform you into root, it elevates your privileges. Enable root, logoff, login as root (it should appear in the Login Screen) and try the rm -rf command without sudo. Beware, under root you can make nasty mistakes and bring your whole OS down to its knees.
