I'm a Mac and iOS developer with a special interest in language analytics. Currently experimenting with Ruby and CouchDB.

For my day job I create security and encryption applications.

In my spare time, I'm the Co-Developor of the free Mac text editor Tincta and the flash-card oriented vocabulary trainer Wokabulary.

comment Change main keyboard layout in OS X
What system are you on? On my Mac running Mavericks newly started apps just keep the keyboard layout that was selected before.

comment Why does my keyboard language switch on website password fields?
Is this independent of your browser? I have noticed that Mavericks auto changes the keyboard layout to your system locale when entering passwords in the user login window. Maybe the same happens in Safari now...

comment After enabling TRIM should I delete free space?
Thanks. I did just that. I didn't know that a disk repair would trim unused space but the console output indeed was "trimming unused blocks" :-)

comment Isn't Inactive memory a waste of resources?
@bmike But wouldn't hat mean that when there is no free RAM left and I start a new App, that the inactive RAM portion would decline and active would rise? That is clearly not the case and from my experience the system gets extremely slow whenever there is no more free ram left, despite there being gigabytes of inactive ram. The system seems to prefer swapping disk before it considers reusing inactive ram.
