comment Got any tips or tricks for Terminal in Mac OS X?
if you use umount like that, you'll leave the /Volumes/<My disk image> folder lying around. Use diskutil eject /Volumes/<My disk image> instead, it'll clean up after you.

if you feel the need to use an alias with more chars than the actual command, consider rewiring your temporal neocortex.

It's worth noting that you will need to install XCode before you can install MacPorts.

Interesting, I just assumed TBH that it was the UI control. I did check, and this dbl-click sizing works in Finder's Column Mode. Hopefully it'll get patched.

This is really something I've wanted, but never expected to happen.

This seemed quite cool until I went into VLC, and the video srub was absolutely horrifying. The main problem with this is that every other non-mac device you'll use will work differently, if I could configure it for just scrolling "page" style apps, then perhaps it'd be good, but for it to be universal is not a win for me.

comment OS X Terminal “must have” utilities
zsh with oh-my-zsh really is awesome, it will even do path completion over an scp/ssh command if you've enabled public key authentication to the server you're looking at, it rocks. (awesomely-powerful completion... /v/m/s/ TAB' expands to /Volumes/MyDrive/Src)

+1 Ack is such an awesome grep replacement, if it wasn't for the fact that grep is in my muscle memory, I'd never use it at all.

comment Is there a QuickLook preview for plain-text files with unknown extensions?
@Chap Harrison, that's not good, is there any chance you can post the TextWrangler info.plist to a gist so I can see it?
