Long time developer in lots of different fields on different hardware using different languages for different reasons.

Greatly enjoying Ruby, Sequel, Nokogiri, Rails, Sinatra/Padrino, and trying to find time and opportunities to work with Python.

I have years and years of experience with Perl too, along with Java, SQL, Pascal, C, various assembly languages and interpreted BASICs.

comment Easy way to get gcc and make in OSX
It's worth downloading XCode if you are developing software. Ruby, Perl and Python use it any time they have to compile a native driver, which could occur any time you add a module to a language.

I use Spotlight instead of QS too. Works fine.

So does the Dock if you click and hold on the icon of a running app.

I'm quite self-respecting and personally find the Dock usable for all I need it to do.

comment Why is the wireless connection between my MacBook and AirPort Express so unstable?
I'll recommend the Airport Extreme as a great router. It's been rock solid where our Linksys wasn't able to get a signal through.

comment Why is the wireless connection between my MacBook and AirPort Express so unstable?
Hmmm. Have you confirmed that it's running the current version of the software? Also, you mention having a wireless phone near it. Certain ranges of wireless will interfere but I don't remember which ones; Shutting off the phone's power should clear it up if that's the problem.
