comment More crisp font for iTerm on OSX
does this still work? I'm on 10.8.2 and I can't see any difference after running the defaults write -g AppleFontSmoothing -int 1 command. Do I have to reboot?

comment Can't get into insert mode in Vim
thanks, that works! I didn't recognise insert mode when I was still stuck in vi compatibility mode, because it still does 'weird vi stuff' when you try and edit the content of the file (I'm not a vimmer...)

comment Can't get into insert mode in Vim
@speakr thanks... :set nocompatible did give me normal vim back! But how do I make it 'stick'? I tried adding set nocompatible in /etc/vim/vimrc but it didn't help (feel free to reply as an answer) (there was no ~/.vimrc on the server, no)

comment Can't get into insert mode in Vim
do you mean shift+i and shift+r? They don't put me in insert mode either. And I don't have any ~/.vimrc file to move.

comment How to mount a HFS partition in Ubuntu as Read/Write?
this doesn't work for me, still complains of being read-only. Wikipedia suggests forcing rw mode risks corruption and the only way is to disable journalling on Mac side before mounting under Linux en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HFS_Plus#Linux which sounds plausible to me

I'd still kind of like to be able to build this from source myself, but for anyone else who just wants to have a look at Shotcut there are binaries (not very visible to Google) here: shotcut.org/bin/view/Sandbox/TestLatest
