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!

comment Fading Text Colors in Snow Leopard Terminal while scrolling?
I found that it may have been due to an aborted ColorSync calibration from earlier in the day. I completed the advanced calibration (don't know if the advanced part mattered) and the problem seems to be gone. So now, my 'submarining' is gone and my display looks better than it did before. Thanks all.

@NSD bit.ly/3DAv5l SIMBL plugin TerminalColours allows for more control over colors of text. I've used it for years w/o issue (and months with SL with no issues).

comment Why Doesn't Windows Read Mac/Linux Partitions?
FYI. A recent (summer '09) update to the Boot Camp drivers allows access to one's Mac OS X partition. Maybe useless for this question with different drives, but maybe you could reformat your XP drive using Boot Camp?

comment Control iSight indicator light on MacBook Pro
Thanks for the info. I realize the command line interface that is used, isightcapture, doesn't work (since 10.4), but DOES activate the light momentarily. I can use that broken command to trigger a signal! I feel very dirty... but it does what I needed.

comment Use cron to screen capture on Mac OS X
Wonderful solution to my question. Very complete. I had read the man page but same mach bootstrap hierarchy went right over my head so I headed straight to SU to help make sense of it. Thank you very much.
