This is what I like to see :

ASSP has been running for months with no problems, and very little human intervention. As a SPAM prevention filter for (in my case) OsX server, it has been a really pleasant surprise, with very modest CPU requirements, and a very high efficiency once the initial training has been done.

I just updated Entourage (actually the whole Office Suite on my Mac), and it seems to work except for a problem where my secure certificates have stopped working :

And so far everything I have tried (except for turning certificates off) is failing…

A Arduino base Gmail notifier….

I’ve been really interested in doing J4mie’s Physical Gmail Notifier ever since it came out in February. I only recently dropped into the project and got to learn a lot about python, plists, and arduino auto-reset functionality. I’m going to share what I’ve learned because I think there are lots of other people out there struggling to make it work. This page doesn’t really offer much that J4mie didn’t already say – it just says it in a different way.

A good step forward- the Sky player now runs on Mac’s!

Interfacing PHP with the Arduino (with a splash OS X)
11/30/2008 | Author: Tinlad | Posted in Hardware
A while ago I bought an Arduino Diecimila, which is an open-source electronics prototyping platform. It’s a very easy to use programmable micro-controller with a bevy of digital and analogue inputs and outputs. It is programmed via USB using the cross-platform Arduino software. The language is C-like with plenty of documentation available online. The Arduino appears to the OS as a serial device which makes two-way communication very easy indeed.

Benjamin has had a longstanding problem where the SyncServer takes most of the CPU on his computer – and not letting him sync to his iPhone properly. If he switched to a different login user all was ok.

So I cam across this possible fix :

OS X 10.5, SyncServer takes 100% of CPU
For the past couple of days a process called SyncServer started every 15 minutes or so and it would take over a 100% of the CPU on my MacBook Pro. Not quite sure what initiated this problem, but I found the remedy discussed in this Apple support case to be useful and apparently effective (well at least so far). I did have .Mac and BlackJack synchronization, so not sure if either of these applications caused this problem or not.

Here is the command that you’ll need to run (broken into a set of cd commands to fit the width of this column).
$ cd /System/Library/Frameworks/
$ cd SyncServices.framework/Versions/
$ cd A/Resources/
$ ./resetsync.pl full

The software was designed for you to be able to access your Mac files remotely using any mobile device you want. However, the iGet Mobile was specifically optimized for the iPhone and the iPod Touch. Access any files you want using iGet Mobile’s interface and know that you’re behind secure SSL encryption. iGet Mobile’s license from nakahara-informatics.com for US$39.

Some of the webservices being used on our servers are not as efficient as they could be (I have written about this earlier – so I will not elaborate too much here), and as the problem is generally with the MySQL queries being used (queries that invalidate the MySQL query cache), and MySQL Proxy seems to be a tool that can remedy this!

So first I need to build it under OsX, and here is a pointer to a site that describes how to do this:

Building MySQL Proxy on Mac OS X

Version 0.5.0 of MySQL Proxy was released a week ago, and in the meantime there have been 25 revisions.

If you want to try the latest version in your box, you can get the sources from the svn repository and build it yourself.

This blog has excellent reviews of all the major irc clients for mac’s under OSX – it’s really good:

The Joy of Apple » Blog Archive » A Review of the Top IRC Clients for OS X:

Are you stuck trying to decide which IRC client is the best for you? To help make the job easier for you, I have reviewed all of the most popular IRC clients for OS X here, listing their pros and cons and including screenshots. Some years ago I wrote a fairly popular IRC client for Windows called Bersirc. It included scripting, plugins, and all the basics you would expect from an IRC client (as well as beating most other clients, including mIRC to multiple-servers).
