If you updated your Mac to MacOS Sierra and you use an old version of Lightroom you may get a shock when you try to import anything. The destination and rename panels are missing from the sidebar! Luckily there’s an easy way to fix it, at least temporarily, thanks to The Lightroom Queen who figured […]
In the past I’ve used FSLint or even some BASH magic to find duplicate files but I have a huge archive of photos and videos, some of which were renamed during import, and some were accidentally imported more than once, or moved about. It’s somewhat chaotic So I was very glad to find dupeGuru! It’s […]

At the recent Automattic meetup in Quebec Matt gave a passionate talk about how great the Dvorak keyboard layout was and handed out paper copies of The Dvorak Zine. The meetup was hectic and the first chance I had to try it out was on the plane home. Just over 5 hours from Montreal to […]
I just installed Synergy on my Ubuntu and Mac OS X laptops and now I can control both from one keyboard and mouse. It works fairly well, although I do wonder: What are the special Mac keys mapped to on my beige PC keyboard? I’ll have to stretch if I move my Macbook away from […]
VirtualC64 is a new Commodore 64 emulator for Mac OS X. It’s a promising project, let down by the fact that it’s still in beta but by the looks of things development is moving at a steady pace. When you first run the emulator it will ask you for C64 roms: basic, kernal, chargen and […]
