macosxhints.com - Disable the startup chime via Unix scripts - 0 views

  • Unfortunately if I have the headphones connected it's their volume that is muted before shutdown and reset later. Is there a way to specify the speakers?
  •  
    This looks like great (it is a mix of Bash and AppleScript) and it works very well for me. However if you are not familiar with simple Unix administration, you might prefer packaged freeware or shareware like StartupSound.prefPane or Psst.

Cocktail - Overview - 0 views

    This piece of $15 shareware (US dollars?) comes highly recommended, even though I would hope that future versions of OS X will do many of these things for itself. How often do upgrade licenses need to be purchased?

How to force certain input language? - The macosxhints Forums - 0 views

  • you can select from the International Preferences pane to allow the input source to be system-wide or document specific. I've got my set to 'document specific'. This lets me enter Arabic in one document, Greek in another,
  • after a couple of switches input source becomes the same for all windows/applications.
  •  
    This seems to be the answer to the question I posted earlier today, about input sources jumping about "at own will".

input sources mess - The macosxhints Forums - 0 views

  • Does anyone experience similar problems?
  •  
    Any suggestions?
  •  
    This started happening to me too (in my case, switching from US to British on its own will) but only after I started using the NoScript and Diigo Toolbar plugins for Firefox. I don't use Adium. The switch to British makes it a real pane to type microblogging hashtags, as the UK MacBook keyboard has no hash.

VirtualBox 2.1.0 Released: A Look at the Mac Version - O'Reilly Digital Media - Dec 200... - 0 views

  • I haven't updated my Parallels Desktop or VMware Fusion to the latest versions yet. And, after a quick look at VirtualBox 2.1.0, I wonder if I will need to. It will probably take another couple of weeks of playing with 2.1.0 before I can make that call.

    @dcorking I'd say, better use ClamXav Sentry.
