Particle physics in my rear view mirror; data science in my headlights. My mother tongue is python, but I used C++ often while I was stuck/blessed with ROOT in physics. I dabble in Tex, Arduino, Raspi, bash, cluster computing, and more!

Can you parse svn log for the users that have committed changes? Or is checking out the repo not an option?

Good solution. But not in my budget of $0!

This was useful. I'm putting together a different cluster with CentOS and now I'll look into Rocks for that one.

comment How can I make a screenshot on a Mac?
Holding the Control key down in addition to the other 3 keys listed by Kio will copy the desired screen capture to the clipboard instead of saving it. Handy if you don't want to clutter your desktop.

The reason this came up was because I'm a dock-nazi; it remains as empty as possible and when papers wasn't opened I wanted to shorten by a click or two getting the dock icon there. The solution is just to keep Papers in the dock. If you make your comment an answer you'll get the best answer!

comment Execute “Get Info” on a file from command line in Mac OS X
I added another dump to /dev/null here: "...osascript - > /dev/null) <<EOF" since the output wasn't too useful and replaced it with a quick blurb. Great job on assembling/writing the codes that went into this answer.

comment Mac OS X: easiest (free, non-QuickTime Pro) application for converting numbered folder of images to movie
I recently had to go about doing the same. Clearly the command line isn't as easy as a GUI, but once I got to know it ffmpeg let me do exactly what I wanted, no matter what I wanted to do!
