Ok, here’s the current list of useful ICS files for use in the OSX Calendars application:
With the advent of tabbed browsing, like many other people I often end up with several windows and dozens of tabs open across them. Annoyingly the shortcut for closing a tab ( ⌘-W ) on a QWERTY keyboard is adjacent to Safari’s Quit ( ⌘-Q ) — too make matters worse unlike Google’s Chrome, Safari doesn’t have a “Warn on Quit” option.
( Before anyone suggest I “just swap to Chrome” I swap between browsers all day, it’s a hazard of my current workload. As most of my tabs are web applications it means I have to re-authenticate each application, so Safari’s “Reopen All Windows from Last Session” isn’t much help either.)
Anyway today after doing it again my brain snapped at me why don’t you just change Safari’s Quit shortcut, so I did, and here’s how I did it.
So, here’s another one of those posts that is just a list I’ve accumulated over the last few years.
This one covers the issue of a looping login screen and no error message when trying to login into /administrator on Joomla! websites.
A typical symptom is that if you put in the wrong user name and password you get an error message, but if you put in the correct details the screen just refreshes to the login screen without an error message.
Every now and then when installing a Joomla! extension or template the Installer will throw up this strange little error “Unable To Write Entry”. Often there’s nothing else, no sign of the extension/template and no other message.
Sometimes there are lots of messages hiding that one little one… interesting over the years the causes have been relatively consistant… this is my list of the solutions.
You know how sometimes things break “for no reason”…

On OSX, PHP is run by Apache as the
www user by default, which is nice and safe…
If you have a backup system in place you must test your backups actually work by restoring them… you’ve all tested your backups right?
So, like lots of people I jumped on the 10.8.2 bandwagon to get all of the IOS6 goodness for the iPhone.
Silly man, didn't look before you jumped… did you?
Error message: “Unexpected termination of script, debugging ended”
Of course all sorts of symptoms match (like it only happens when the variables panel is opened, or, when a DB connection result is returned or… ) but really it was just because things had gotten out of sync.
If you’re an iPhone 4S user you’re probably aware that some of the cooler Siri and iOS 5 features didn’t make it to Australia. This year with iOS 6 we are a lot better off, if I’d done this last year the list would have been a lot longer, thankfully the list is much shorter this year.
This quick post is all about setting up a Joomla Development Environment on Mac OS X 10.8 using the built-in Apache 2 and PHP that ships with your Mountain Lion Mac.
Do yourself a huge favour and read it all the way through before you start hacking around in your system.
Oh, and before anyone asks I don’t use a VM because… well this is polite company so lets just leave it at that.
