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?

Steve [Visitor]

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.

I like ncdu for this. It has an ncurses interface and will let you delete files/directories. In debian apt-get install ncdu to get it then just ncdu /var/log/

Thank you for greatly increasing my peace of mind! I have followed b2e for years and very much look forward to using it as the cornerstone of future work.

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?

admin [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.

In response to: Did I abandon my sites?

filthio [Visitor]

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)

In response to: How to improve the mouse speed on Mac OS X

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

You may also want to include a note for laptop users who don’t have Home/End keys and want to use CTRL-leftarrow and CTRL-rightarrow to achieve the same cursor movement.

The OS keyboard shortcuts have CTRL-leftarrow and CTRL-rightarrow mapped to “move left a space” and “move right a space” respectively under System Preferences > Keyboard > Keyboard Shortcuts > Mission Control. When you only have one space setup (the default), it is not easy to tell this is what the keys do.

These shortcuts overrule the Terminal keyboard settings, so you need to change or disable them if you want to use those key combinations to navigate in Terminal.

In response to: How to fix Mac OS X Terminal Page Up/Down + Home/End of line

Tim [Visitor]

As of OSX 10.6.8, the correct fix is:

Terminal->Preferences->Settings->Keyboard->+

Key: home or end
Modifier: none
Action: send string to shell

Then for the sequence PRESS ESCAPE (or CTRL-[ ) to get a “\033″ and then type “[H” or “[F” for home and end so the full thing is “\033[H” or “\033[F".

It’s worth noting that these are already bound to Shift-Home and Shift-End (which are obtained with Shift-Fn-Left and Shift-Fn-Right). So if you can change your habits slightly you don’t actually need to reconfigure anything.

Francois: it would be nice if you updated your post to reflect this, since it is the first result in Google and I doubt many people are going to read down the comments this far.
