Started programming Macs back when you needed a Lisa to do it. Switched to Unix about 10 years before Apple did. Now just a fanboy.

comment “Accept incoming network connections” issue
@Sean, the link works for me today, but I added an archive link just in case. The solution is too involved to copy here.

comment Install Older Versions of Java on OSX 10.8.1
@Johnny, you can get Java 1.6.0_07 for Leopard, or Java 1.5.0_30 for Leopard along with Java 1.6.0_26 but there's no reason to think it will work on Mountain Lion. Which is to say there's no reason to think there exists Mountain Lion compatible ports of Java at the versions you are looking for.

comment How to make Smart folder like physical folder with the combined contents of two folders
@Stuart, while this answer is truly impressive, it has several limitation, so be sure you can live with them. In particular, the combined file folder /tmp/folder needs to be treated as read-only, because changes made there will not be propagated back to the other folders. Also, as jaume noted, name collisions will result in one file overwriting the other. With some work (manually editing the XML file) you could create a Smart Folder that contains .txt files from both folders. Would that work for your App?

comment How can you avoid error -43 when copying symlinked folder in Finder with a SAMBA share?
@DBK I would disable ACLs unless you really need them. Under Ubuntu there were separate SAMBA logs for each client on the server, so look for those. Maybe increase the debugging log level of your server if there's no more info than what you posted. What is the OS of your server? What file system is the server using?
