I use a Mac at home, a remote Debian server. I Dual boot Win 7 for the occasional game. I also run VMs of several other Operating Systems (Debian, Ubuntu, CentOS, Win 7, Win XP).

I'm learning HTML, CSS, PHP, MYSQL, Javascript, BASH Scripting.

I have little experience with C#, Perl, Python.

I want to learn Python and C (or C++) one day.

comment Switching between windows of one application in multiple spaces
I didn't think there was a shortcut but thought it would be worth an ask.

Eye candy is great... but only is it works fast every time... Mission Control isn't always as responsive as I would like and I hardly use it... I much prefer "Spaces" as it was in Snow Leopard.

comment Find out what process is using my HDD
Temporary fix for other users ` sudo kill -9 $(ps -u _postfix -o "pid=")` I'm working on a proper fix, as currently postfix will auto re-start it's processes and in turn starting writing to the HDD again.

It appears to be postfix. Pretty sure this came with Lion Server, as I installed that recently and did try using it's Mail server. I did disable Lion Server as per Apple instructions but obviously that doesn't get rid of all the little programs it was using.

I was hoping that there would be an app that would tell you which process is reading/writing... I will have a look though Activity Monitor.

@DustinStalin No. I can't find any mds process so I would think not.

@RandolphWest I know it's not, but it must be writing to some odd places to cause such a slow down for 6MB/s, though now it's down to 3MB/s and my computer is still just as slow. mds isn't running anymore so it can't be spotlight.

@DustinStalin Just that it uses the HDD so intense that in turn the OS can't do it's day to day tasks. Like run my apps at any decent speed.

comment Is there an app to ping IP's periodically to check latency?
Yeah this is the functionality I was after... but it's not the app I remember. I found another app call "sntop" which does what I want too but not in a nice GUI as I remember.

Not really... I need something to check that my local internet connectivity is working.
