Sharing your mouse, keyboard and pasteboard with several Macs (or PC's)

Like many people, I have several computers at work that I frequently switch among: I recently started using Synergy to share my mouse, keyboard and pasteboard among my main work G5 and my home Powerbook. It is pretty cool, and fairly easy to setup.

Cmd – click. The subtle secret of Mac OS X.

It seems that a lot of people don’t know how cmd click works in a lot of Mac OS X Cocoa applications. To put it simply, Cmd-clicking on a non key window (or application for that matter) will act like a normal click without making the window key! This is really cool for testing UI things while debugging or testing for memory leaks. Here is how I use this technique while debugging: 1. I’m debugging my application with Xcode. Inside of Xcode I have a “hot” breakpoint that I don’t want to enable, since enabling it will make Xcode key,... [read more]
