Mac OS X

iTerm Upgrade Loses Preferences & Bookmarks

UPDATE: iTerm version has been released which is intended to fix this. I haven't tested it.

I just upgraded to iTerm version from on Mac OS X Leopard, and found that iTerm had forgotten or lost all of my preferences and bookmarks.

I fixed it by;

IE6 running on Leopard Mac OS X with IEs4OSX

Gabor blogged about how IEs4OSX saved I was impressed with his review so I tried it out myself. Now I don't have to boot up greedy 'ol parallels everyday just to update my hours in Quickbooks (It even runs activeX controls)! :)

I definitely recommend IEs4OSX.

Leopard isn't the new Vista (Firehose on PCmag)

Oliver Rist 'reviewed' Mac OS X Leopard and his article was slashdotted.


I'm writing this on my second MacBook Pro, in our house we also have MacBook white (My fiancee's), an iPod Shuffle, an Airport Extreme base station and an Airport Express with Airtunes. Although I wouldn't agree with you, it wouldn't surprise me if you took me for a JAFAF (Just Another Fucking Apple Fanboy). However I make an effort to keep a realistic view on Apple's products and if I felt that an open source operating system could enhance my workflow as much (or nearly as much) as Mac OS X, I would switch, but currently there isn't. I work on FLOSS all day every day -- that's my job, as a web and drupal developer and consultant.


Oliver is clearly having a bitch in this article, and no doubt intentionally to aggravate JAFAFs and motivate discussion responses and click-throughs on the ads. Hence I won't give him or PC mag the pleasure of a long detailed approach, but merely attempt sieve out the parts inspired by T.O.M., and add my own $0.2; a realistic count of my Leopard experience to date.

Parallels Coherence weirdness

Parallels coherence is even better in the newest versions. Each Windows window is an individual application window on the OSX desktop too -- meaning you can have expose for windows too! However the drop shadows are kind of hackish and break usability sometimes. I'm not sure if it was like this in tiger or not -- I upgraded to Leopard recently...
