Oh. No. Windows.
Yes, even when working with a Mac you have to deal with windows all day long.
So, why not just put them in their places?

Control Spotify with your Mac’s Keyboard Media Keys

LogEngine Image

I haven’t used iTunes for years now. But I constantly launch it by accident because I hit one of the ‘Media Keys’ on the keyboard.

I found a way to disable it and the added benefit is that now you can ‘Play/Pause/Next/Previous’ Spotify in case it is already running.

All you have to do is to open the Terminal and copy and paste following command:

launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchAgents/ 2> /dev/null

Please note that /dev/null means your flushing it down the digital toilette; so only do this if you know what you are doing and you really don’t want to control iTunes anymore!

Who would have thought?

It is fucking unbelievable! There is actually an alternative for the ugly, old, and feature-creepy Thunderbird available. Who would have thought that there are people out there able to write functioning, good-looking, and well thought out software for Linux?

Yes, as it turns out – it is actually possible to write decent open source software that’s not ugly as hell and usable without getting lost in the underbelly of the Terminal! So, start taking notes!

Nylas N1 – The extensible, open source mail app.

And could someone now (and finally) please just write a decent Twitter client, a decent calendar app with CalDav, and a Free alternative for Linux; so that I can finally use my beloved, ugly, clunky ThinkPad for everything not Mac and Xcode?

Why I like Moby

…feel free to share it or give it away or whatever, it’s not protected or anything, or at least it shouldn’t be.

Of course, that’s not the only reason :–)
