2005-12-23, 22:47: Finally...

..I have some days off (til 9th of january).
Did I mention that Santa Claus sucks? Where for Bob's sake is Santa mentioned in the bible? Where the hell came he from? (Most guess it's Coca Cola, dunno).
Anyway, I want to contribute to www.pro-christkind.org. Keep it up!

2005-11-25, 06:34: I can't stand it any longer...

People in lists, forums and ngs are sometimes really getting to me. Especially when they are so 'verpeilt. Today I want to discuss HowDoIGetResults.

2005-11-25, 06:32: Mitmögen...

...muss ich jetzt auch mal: http://pro.moegig.de/moegbutton.gif. Wer mehr wissen will, liest http://pro.moegig.de/.

2005-11-16, 23:46: Yet another month passed...

Astounding how time goes by - it's a month since my last entry.
I needed to remote control my VLC so I made a bunch of shell scripts: VLCRemoteControlShellScripts.

2005-10-17, 18:55: Learned a cool phrase...

"Die Hohe Kunst der sedimentären Datenablage" - meaning "the higher arts of sedimentary data storage".

2005-10-15, 14:37: Hamburg... (updated 2005-10-17, 18:54)

    • Do's
      • Walk around the Binnenalster upload:binnenalsterlightshow.jpg
      • See the cool down-counting traffic lights at Gänsemarkt upload:fussgaengerampelcountdown.jpg 11 seconds 'til green...
    • Dont's
      • Ask at the reception for a second pillow
      • Got to the Hofbräuhaus - it's for yuppies. Cigar Lounge, and Türsteher at the entrance... upload:hofbraeuhaushamburch.jpg

2005-10-10, 13:15: Apple Remote Desktop (ARD)...

is pretty cool - but lacks support for secure connections (or over a firewall). But it is possible.
  • First make sure, you use this settings: upload:ardadminsettings.jpg
  • Disable remote administration on the administrator's Mac via "Sharing" in System Preferences.
  • Do this via ssh: ssh -L 3283:remoteHostEthernetIPAddress:3283 -L 5900:remoteHostEthernetIPAddress:5900 user@remotehost
  • Because ARD Agents DO launch, regardless wether you disable it in "Sharing" and ARD Admin Preferences, you have to start first ARD Admin and then send kill -1 to the following processes:
    • /System/Library/CoreServices/RemoteManagement/AppleVNCServer.bundle...
    • /System/Library/CoreServices/RemoteManagement/ARDAgent.app/Contents/Mac...
  • On Administrator's Mac connect to "localhost" (which will be forwarded to your remotehost).
That's it!
And now the ARDOverSshForwardScriptExample!
PS: Ever wanted to do User-Switching by shell? This will make the active user suspend, and bring the Login Window up: /System/Library/CoreServices/Menu\ Extras/User.menu/Contents/Resources/CGSession -suspend

2005-09-22, 08:58: Star Wars Episode V...

has some minor goofs:
  • Leia speaks of her father...which could only mean step-father, since her father is Darth Vader.
  • C3PO says that he doesn't know Obi Wan Kenobi (which he should since he met him in the earlier episodes)
  • Obi Wan Kenobi says he doesn't own or know R2D2 (he should, he meets him in the earlier episodes)
  • Han Solo uses "parsecs" as a time unit...

2005-09-21, 13:32: Are you annoyed by the iChat 2.x graphical smileys?

...I was. And here's how to get rid of them:.
sudo rm /Applications/iChat.app/Contents/Resources/*.lproj/SmileyTable.plist

2005-09-19, 15:49: Ever had the problem, that your FileVault didn't have enough space?

...I did. My FileVault was only 12 GB big (weird - I wonder why it can grow at all!).
Here's the solution, "grow" your sparseimage while logged in from a nother account (making sure you are not logged in with the image's owner's account).
sudo hdiutil resize -size 25g heiko.sparseimage -stdinpass
