comment Execute “Get Info” on a file from command line in Mac OS X
I didn't get a chance to try it until now, but I'm getting this error which makes me laugh a little: ./getinfo.sh phBASE.sh execution error: Can’t make file ":⼀唀猀攀爀猀⼀洀眀漀漀搀猀⼀瀀栀䈀䄀匀䔀⸀猀栀" into type alias. (-1700)

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!

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.

@pavium I wouldn't think so.

@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.
