Moving to a Macbook core 2 duo

I have owned 5 laptops for the last 6 years, which are a lot of laptops if you ask me... From a Toshiba Satellite with DSTN screen, going next to an IBM Thinkpad 600x and owning only macs since then: Powerbook G4 550 titanium, Powerbook G4 1Ghz 12" and, since yesterday, a shinny (second handed) Macbook 2 Core Duo.

All those machines were bought second handed and sold consequently. I have been...

Overburning script for Mac OS X, Record large films in Mac

If you use the Finder burning tool to create your CDs, or an application that doesn't support overburning (surpass a little bit the CD or DVD maximum size) I am sure that some time you got anrgy.

Sometimes are films, sometimes it's just one more song in the CD library you are creating... The thing is that you have 703MB and you cannot burn a 700MB CD. It won't happen again!

How to convert MP3 to AAC, or how to set MP3 as ringtone in your mobile phone

As if I were a teenager, yesterday I found an mp3 song that I hadn't heard in maybe ten years and a smile came to my face when I imagined that it could be played in my mobile when I need a loud tone (I am on of those who preffer having it silent all the time)

So I passed the MP3 directly to the mobile but it failed, the mobile can play it but can't be set as ringtone. Rapidly browsed my...

A free good cross-platform CSS editor

It supports auto-completion, really useful wizards, color pickers, preview and a long etcetera. You can go directly to the download page and see specific instructions for Gentoo, BSD, Mac OS X (via Fink),...

How to disable the opening of XTerm when you start X11 on OS X

Some applications like OpenOffice II, in OS X, run under X11 platform. Due to this, when you open this type of applications the X11 environment starts, opening by default XTerm terminal. To avoid this behaviour you have to edit, by hand, the init file of X11. This file is placed under

/etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc

and the only thing you have to do is to comment the line where it starts XTerm, that...
