Hav­ing con­nec­tion prob­lems with #apple  #home­shar­ing? Research has shown, iTunes opens numer­ous con­nec­tions when paired with an #appletv3  . As a workaround, a script was cre­at­ed to mon­i­tor those con­nec­tions and to restart iTunes once it reach­es a cer­tain thresh­old. 

I put the script togeth­er with a Launch­Dae­mon con­fig into GitHub, for those in need for it. Hope it helps.

OS X Lion How to place Dictionary definitions higher up on Spotlight results

I final­ly found an answer to a ques­tion that arose with OS X Lion: How to place Dic­tio­nary def­i­n­i­tions high­er up on Spot­light results?

I was quite used to quick­ly open #Spot­light  via cmd-space and type in a word I need­ed a def­i­n­i­tion or trans­la­tion for. Before #Lion   those def­i­n­i­tions showed up at the top of Spotlight’s results list and I could reach them with a sin­gle cur­sor down to reveal the details. Sad­ly #Apple  decid­ed to place those def­i­n­i­tions at the bot­tom of Spotlight’s results, hav­ing users go through the whole list to final­ly reach the def­i­n­i­tion. They also decid­ed users must not have the abil­i­ty the revert to the old behav­ior by re-order­ing Spotlight’s results in con­trol pan­el – which would have been easy.

All this effec­tive­ly ren­dered #Dic­tio­nary  use­less on Lion and it still kept being use­less on #Moun­tain­Lion . The ref­er­enced arti­cle from Stack­Ex­change final­ly presents the solu­tion to this prob­lem. It’s easy and just gives back the pow­er to decide by him­self where to place dic­tio­nary def­i­n­i­tions to the user.

How to place Dic­tio­nary def­i­n­i­tions high­er up in spot­light results

I used to use spot­light fair­ly fre­quent­ly to quick­ly look up words in a dic­tio­nary. With Lion, I’ve noticed that my dic­tio­nary results have dropped down much low­er in the list of results: I’d like to…

Well #Sony, this time you really annoyed…

Well #Sony, this time you real­ly annoyed me. I accept­ed that you’re too dumb to keep your net­work safe. I accept­ed that your video-on-demand ser­vice doesn’t deliv­er on time (it rather takes at least 4h). And I also under­stand that you don’t get that sell­ing #onlinegames for a for­tune doesn’t fit into times where #Apple showed up with their iGad­gets that deliv­er far more fun than your old school stuff. But today I got #Uncharted3 and found that ‘Net­work Pass’ stick­er on it. That makes the game actu­al­ly impos­si­ble to resell. Are kid­din’ me? Damn ya Sony! You’re so #greedy! Isn’t it enough for you that I have to pay near­ly dou­ble price for the same game over here in Europe? Isn’t it enough that your games always cost more than dou­ble price than any oth­er plat­form? You’re not inno­v­a­tive any­more. You suck! I pre­dict you will be gone in 2020 – or split into con­sumer elec­tron­ics and music/movie busi­ness­es.
