Do you spend a lot of time moving and zooming windows, so you can better see and work with all the content on your Mac? Instead of doing that work yourself, let Moom handle the task for you.
I am a real sucker for Mac software. Each time I see something new, I want to try it, especially if it is well designed. Most of the time, I stop using the new software after a little while because it did not respond to a real need, it is too cumbersome or just because I just forgot about it. I thought it might be the case with Moom, a nifty little app from Manytricks. I installed it a few months ago and still use it all the time. What does it do? It helps you with window management.
If you spend a lot of time working on your computer, moving files around, using multiple apps at the same time, Moom makes it really easier. Is always available while completely out of your way. You should give it a try.
FirePHP is a fantastic little tool that enables you to log messages to your Firefox browser’s console directly from you php files. I have known it for a while, but maybe out of laziness, rarely used it. It is SO easy to install. Get the Firefox extension and download the core files from the FirePHP website. Require the library in your php files. Instanciate it and fire away! See below:
// In the file I want to send log from:
// Then get the instance (looks like a singleton pattern)
$firephp = FirePHP::getInstance(true);
// ...go ahead and log as much as you need:
$firephp->log('what the ** is the value of this variable: ' . $myCrazyVariable);
It does much more than this… Interested? Go the the FirePHP website.
The root Library is hidden by default in OSX Lion. To reveal it, open Terminal (Applications > Terminal) and type:
chflags nohidden /Library. Ahh, the Library is back, now I feel better…
