Interesting blog about Bullet Proof Coffee … I don’t drink coffee but used to drink mocha in winter time … Have you try the Death Wish Coffee yet ?…

link : http://www.deathwishcoffee.com/

I read about it when it was on the news last year … you might need a straight jacket to hold yourself very still …

In response to: How to edit your keyboard layout on Mac OS X

Comment from: Vlad [Visitor]

I use ten languages under Mac preferences, and have them on the top drop-down menu. For the small differences in European languages, I just memorize the placement of the characters on the regular QWERTY keyboard. It becomes second nature for most; otherwise I get help from the keyboard viewer.

I discovered I had two of the damn things on my box, maybe this will help someone;

4/19/15 4:41:06 PM com.apple.launchd[1] (com.daz3d.content_management_service[4695]) Exited with exit code: 1
4/19/15 4:41:06 PM com.apple.launchd[1] (com.daz3d.content_management_service) Throttling respawn: Will start in 10 seconds

4/19/15 4:41:06 PM com.apple.launchd[1] (com.zeobit.MacKeeper.plugin.AntiTheft.daemon[4696]) posix_spawn("/Library/Application Support/MacKeeper/MacKeeperATd", …): No such file or directory

I used the list command shown here, and easily removed the 2nd one, the zeobit.mackeeper garbage, but the DAZ did not show up at all in the list, not even when I used sudo;

sudo launchctl list

So on a hunch I figured it was somehow hidden, so I tried this syntax and the console logging immediately STOPPED;

sudo launchctl remove com.daz3d.content_management_service

Comment from: [Member]

I would normally regard a comment like the above as spam and not validate it but in this case, I looked at it and I actually like the product.

If you’re traveling to France you can book a moxx and get it delivered to your place. It’s a small box that will act as a WiFi base station and provide internet service through 3G/4G networks. When you leave, just drop it at a post office in the prepaid return envelope. 7.99 €/day -> cheaper than what hotels charge and it works almost everywhere you go.

Hi Sebastien!

I’ve never found 100% guaranteed grass fed butter in France. At Naturalia, buy the butter that feels the softest (grass fed butter is soft, grain ged butter is comparatively hard – at the same temperature). If you’re lucky you’ll find “summer butter” ("beurre d’été") which is the butter made from when the cows are outside in the summer, and actually eat grass.

Regarding coffee, I tried the official bulletproof brand. It’s nothing extraordinary. I’m still trying different varieties of organic coffee (many from Naturalia) to find one I like as much as the NON-organic one I love which is the Guatemala from “Monoprix Gourmet” ;)

Hi

Will give it a try your recipe as I think official bulletproof products are quite expensive and too much marketed.

I’m also from Paris (and also developer!).

I already have that same coconut oil from Naturalia, but wonder where to buy the grass-fed butter as it’s not often mentionned in the packaging. Can I find a good quality butter in supermarkets, under labels like Isigny butter for exemple?

And what about the coffee?

If you could give me exactly what you buy it would be nice so that I do not try something too fancy :)

Very interesting. Thanks for sharing your experience. I’ll try that, even if I’m not so fond of coffee.

FYI, as you’re interested in nutrition, I’ve been away from gluten (almost no bread, pizza, pastries…) for 3 weeks now and I really feel better (less tired, more energy even until late). For me, the difference is amazing. I’d be happy to discuss about that one day at a bar in Paris. Bye ;-)

I tried the Terminal launchctl remove for a constant problem with throttling respawn of a mobile broadband manager, but it didn’t work - just keeps on running and running every 10 seconds, slowing down my computer. Any other suggestions please?

For those who are interested I have an article on how to clean up the Open With menu here [http://idoitonamac.blogspot.com/2014/03/keeping-open-with-menu-clean-on-os-x.html] and I also have made an application to perform all the tasks discussed in the article.

The application (CoW) is available for download here [https://github.com/spaquet/CleanOpenWith/releases]

You can fork the app on GitHub too and make it even better.

Hello Harry,

On Mavericks OS X Server there is a built in apache server so you don’t need to install MAMP. So in your case, you might want to follow instructions such as these: Setting Up And Using Web Services in OS X Mavericks Server

Adding ads and analytics are straightforward javascript snippet copy/paste operations. You’ll have no problem with these ;)

Five years later, any recommendations for running b2e on Mac Mini Servers running OS X (Mavericks) Server? Posting across domains is very appealing as is monetizing the blog and fora posts with ads, and then fully embedding Google Analytics.

As long as these can be done, I’ll buy the servers ASAP.

Thanks,

Harry

In response to: Did I abandon my sites?

Comment from: [Member]

We have bootstrap skins in the current development branch. They need a lot more testing and adjusting before release. But yes, b2evolution will definitely be supporting bootstrap heavily.

As for my own sites, bootstrap may not fit them all.

Regarding admin interface: any nice admin designs (URLs or screenshots) are very welcome so we have a catalog of ideas to pick from. We also have a bootstrap admin skin in the dev branch but bootstrap is just a technology, not really a design… and definitely not one for a full featured admin panel. It needs more work.

Well said sir. I sometimes look at my back catalogue of b2evo sites (yes, I have updated that 0.8 install now, thanks) and think exactly the same. I’m currently working on reskinning something that might be a bit more responsive, and if it works I shall be happy to share.

Two things I would throw into your pot -

1: don’t forget the admin interface. This is also way behind the times compared with competitors, and yet the features it has are so flexible and useful. It would be particularly good to be able to customise a stripped-down back-end so that clients can have a very, very simple interface whilst admins can have full access.

2: responsive design satisfies a lot of visitors. b2evo skins are notoriously poor at mobile/tablet presentation, and fixing that is not simple, but if we do then we will have a massive boost to usefulness.

I’m pretty sure you need to use “sudo” for launchctl to even see system launch agents. Otherwise it just looks for stuff from your user.

Unless of course you’re just looking for launch agents that are in your user account.

Thanks a lot! I have been struggling with this. It didn’t seem to work for me, until I realized you must also apply “overfow:hidden” to the containing div. Not only “fixed” height. That solves the added unwanted scroll problem of IE. (For me at least)

Comment from: p4.jimmy [Visitor]

I have a 27″ iMac and I’m using a Magic Mouse. This too was an annoying issue for me personally. Here’s what I did to fix it. No third party software required.

1.) Open Terminal and type the following command:
defaults write .GlobalPreferences com.apple.mouse.scaling -1

2.) Go into System Preferences, under Mouse and move the Tracking slider to the third position from the right side.

3.) Go back into Terminal and type the following command:
defaults write -g com.apple.mouse.scaling 2.25

YOU MUST LOG OUT AND BACK IN TO SEE THE CHANGES.

Step 1 above disables the mouse acceleration that makes a mac mouse over shoot it’s target. At least that’s how I describe what it’s doing. Annoying. After this is disabled, depending on the Tracking you had setup, at first it feels like you’ve made it worse, but do steps 2 and 3 and your mouse will then act allot more like a Windows, which is especially good if you are forced to work on Windows at work and come home to a Mac.

If it isn’t quite right for you, try playing with the number in step 3. Change the 2.25. to 3.0 or more to make it faster, and go the other way (2.0, 1.5, etc) to make it slower.

Another side note; If you want to turn acceleration back on retype the command in step 1 and substitute the -1 for a 1
Also the default scaling, on my computer was 1.5. You can set it back to the default if you like. You can also read the value at anytime using the command… defaults read -g com.apple.mouse.scaling

Hope this helps Jimmy
