comment What is the md5/sha1 checksum for Xcode 3.2.6 and iOS 4.3 SDK final?
That's right @Barry, but as you can see, Chris and I figured that out about 2 years ago. Thanks though.

@VxJasonxV probably a good idea to change the screenshot to something that doesn't look like an app switching swipe... :)

comment How can I change a file or folder icon using the Terminal
Thanks for that, very helpful indeed. BTW, I'm editing out the GUI method, to reduce noise.

@ChrisJohnsen, that sounds plausible, but I think I probably misremembered.

@ChrisJohnsen - not sure where I picked up that notion, I must have a fudged memory, the last time I was playing with an MD5 generator, I could've sworn I was getting different hash values each time. Chances are it was a bad implementation, it was a web based MD5 generator, but even so seems unlikely, or I simply misremembered (more likely!) Thank you anyway, always good when duff information gets removed from my brain, even if I do look a bit stupid in the process :)

when you generate an MD5, there's no guarantee you'll get the same code each time, however each of these different codes will correlate properly with the target when verifying.

comment What changes have been made to bash in Lion?
@John I tried u="$(whoami)"; echo $u on 10.6 and 10.7, with the same result. Post the script source, that way you'll get decent answers. Also, to address your main question, the latest system upgrades for 10.7 and 10.6 will have the same version of bash anyway, ie. 3.2.48(1)-release

comment OS X Terminal equivalent of Ctrl+Left / Ctrl+Right
Of course, ESC ^ is great when you do need it, it's only annoying when you wanted to do something else entirely :)

As Steve Yegge skillfully pointed out in his leaked google+ post, Accessibility is really important, and doesn't really mean what we tend to think it does... Accessibility is every way that humans interact with computers.

Just tap the right arrow on the copy | cut selected text menu, and there's the define option, or tap left to go back.

@Styfle - "a lot of good Accessibility features that no one knows about" ... ironic that accessibility to the accessibility features is so poor.

comment How can I bypass Textmate asking for my password every time I save a file?
@WaleyChen /Users/MyUsername/ is equal to ~ your home directory, everything below it, ie. rails_projects should have permissions set to you, if not, you can change it with chown username filename
