I ended up with Spectacle, seems to work perfect and is free.

This looks perfect. Is there a free alternative?

comment How to change computer name so terminal displays it in Mac OS X Mountain Lion?
wasn't me with the -1 :). Thank you for your answer, I guess I'm not just looking for how to change my name in the terminal, but clearly my computer is still referenced by the new-host-4 ugly name as services like Backblaze use it. My previous MacBook Pro had a nicer name that I chose, I don't know why my mountain lion MacBook Pro isn't using the name I have in the Sharing preferences

@ThorbjørnRavnAndersen - my .local domain from the Sharing preferences has been scotts-macbook-pro.local

comment Sold my MacBook Pro Lion, how to reset OS installation?
How do I "re-install the Lion from Apple's image over the network?" I can install over the internet? Otherwise, I'm not allowed to transfer my Lion upgrade when I sell my computer?

comment Can't install glib with brew
Thanks! That resolved everything! I had to run git remote add origin git://github.com/mxcl/homebrew.git after cd'ing to /usr/local, but otherwise I was then at brew 0.9.2 and able to install glib and gtk+.

I updated the question with a response. Is 0.8 the latest version?

comment Can't transfer 4gbyte file from USB flash drive to Snow Leopard
Where is Xcode 4.2 for Snow Leopard? I'm in the develop downloads on Apple's site and I only see Xcode 4.3.3, 4.3.2, 4.3.1, 4.3, 4.2.1, 4.2 and 4.1 all saying "for Lion". When I click on Xcode 4.2, the filename I download is "installxcode_42_lion.dmg". Are you sure this works on Snow Leopard?

I'll try that, I had ntfs because I need to frequently transfer files from the PC to mac and viceversa, but I'll just purchase another thumb drive...

I thought the latest was 3.2.6 for snow leopard and 3.2.5 for leopard. The problem seems to be an issue with USB drives and macs though... I can't seem to transfer these big files fully.

When I login to the developer downloads section of the Apple website, I just see "Xcode 3.2.6 and iOS SDK 4.3 for Snow Leopard" and "Xcode 3.2.5 and iOS SDK 4.2". Seems that 3.2.5 is the latest for Leopard?

Excellent, I'll try that. What about for Leopard? Will that work for Leopard as well?

I just received an external USB 3.0 drive and am going to try BackBlaze when I set this up in the next day or 2. This may be the best option, thanks.

I ONLY need to store iPhoto videos externally. I'm happy for iPhoto to have 0 videos on a local drive.

Backblaze looks great, can I easily store my iPhoto videos on an external hardrive and then restore on a new computer with iPhoto?

@gentmatt - Upload speeds are not an issue. I have plenty and I don't care if it takes a very long time either.

comment Is there a better photo application than iPhoto for managing iPhone videos and photos?
Looks like rebuilding everything, including thumbnails, fixed my speed issues! I did it by simply opening iPhoto while holding down the option and command keys.
