Mountain Lion on an older Mac

MLpostfactor

If you’re still stuck on Lion because your Mac isn’t compatible with Mountain Lion you might want to take a look at this project where people have created an app called MLPostFactor. It allows you to install Mountain Lion on pretty much any Mac that can run Lion. It’s still beta software and you have to know what you’re doing (which goes for most things in life) but it looks good, might have to give it a try on our old white iMac.

I gots ads yo

Pigs are flying, it’s raining frogs, I’ve signed up to an affiliate program.
From now on you can see some banners around the site advertising Jbox/J-list, a shop specializing in Japanese quirkiness.
Why this one and not others? Because they sell stuff like this, this and this. Which is all awesome. So if it’s good enough that I want to buy it it’s good enough to advertise for it. And if you go there and buy something I get a little store credit so I can buy something there too.
So check it out. :D

One emulator to rule them all

OpenEmu

Coming soon, looks sweet. Multiple emulators in one and a nice interface to manage the games.
For the brave or the impatient you can grab the OpenEmu source on github and compile it yourself.

Focal length matters

focal length matters

In case you’re wondering why you or the people you’re trying to take a picture of look distorted, that’s why. Focal length. Easy to adjust if you’re using a dslr camera, good luck if you’re using a phone as those tend to have a pretty low focal length.

Tekken Card Tournament

Tekken Card Tournament The Waiting Game

Yay, another freemium card game for the iPad.
Mini review: it looks like Tekken, is disguised as a card game, but is basically just rock, paper, scissors. With a non-working multi player mode. NEXT!

LucasArts no more

LucasArts

Dum dum dum, another one bites the dust. In their infinite wisdom Disney decides to shut down LucasArts, there goes another game company.
“After evaluating our position in the games market, we’ve decided to shift LucasArts from an internal development to a licensing model, minimizing the company’s risk while achieving a broader portfolio of quality Star Wars games,” LucasArts parent company LucasFilm said in a statement. Yeah… rough translation: “Fuck making quality games, we’re going to whore out everything LucasArts ever made to anyone willing to pay for a license, like Electronic Arts.”

Big Webstats

Big webstats X111.com

Nifty looking, but rather inaccurate.
Just looking at the Social Buzz section I can see Facebook likes and shares are missing, the same goes for Twitter back links. So if you use it to analyze your own site take everything with a rather large pinch of salt, but fun to see nonetheless.

Also I think they’re more interested in generating backlinks for their own site as I received word of this through my contact form…

How to clear iTunes of all unused iOS apps

iTunes app cleaning

With so many apps you can try and discard on your iPhone or iPad you can get a huge library of them in iTunes as iTunes doesn’t delete them and keeps updating them even, and it’s a pain in the rear to have to manually go through them all to see which ones you use and which ones you don’t.

  1. Get rid of all the iOS apps in iTunes;
  2. Go to the app section in iTunes, select all, delete.

  3. Clear out any extra apps you may have;
  4. Quit iTunes and check the Music/iTunes/iTunes Music/Mobile Applications folder for any remnants.

  5. Re-import the apps from your iOS device(s);
  6. Start iTunes again and File>Devices>Transfer Purchases from (the name of your iOS device), repeat for any iOS device you have.

And of course make sure to make a backup beforehand in case anything does go wrong.

Work in progress... not home!
Trying to get all/most of the new code working before I start on the eyecandy.
