Freelance software engineer/developer/programmer in New York City. Focused on native iPhone app development, but I could probably make you a Mac app if you ask real nice.

Among other things, I'm responsible for

  • FatWatch, the best Hacker's Diet tool for iPhone,
  • MetroCost, a tool to save you money on public transit, and
  • Fingerpaintball, a brick breaking game designed for iPad.

My company is Heroic Software. I have a blog, a tumblelog, and I tweet.

comment How to disable the “Your computer time is almost up.” dialog?
I can tell you that the file at that path contains the text of that dialog box, and the command sudo chmod 000 will effectively prohibit any app from reading it. I guess the theory is that will cause the dialog to fail and it simply won't show up, but it's just as likely to show up blank, or crash, or anything at all.

Can you summarize that? I have a hard time following the chat dialogue. It seems like there is some FileVault-related issue but that's it?

Oh, not your fault, I was just commenting on the page design.

It actually took me several minutes to find the download link on that page (top right).

What are the risks? You are being very ominous here but I've followed your links and I don't understand what you think might happen.

Thanks for the reference; I used perl -n -e "m/^... .. ..:..:.. .+? (.+)\[(\d+)\]/; print \$1, '[_]', \$';" to scrub the dates and process IDs to compare them. I'll post the line in my question but it doesn't get very far.
