Again, building on my previous scripts it was dead to make a script that creates new window for Atom editor. This is best used with Spotlight or Alfred to quickly create new window in current space (even if another window was open in some other space it will not switch there). Installation Unzip the archive […]

Previously I have written AppleScripts to open new windows for TextMate, Sublime Text 2 and also Safari. But the latter was somehow corrupt when using with Mac OS X 10.8.3, so I rewrote it based on previous two, adding features in the process: Checks if Safari is already running and creates new window (without switching […]

Building upon my older post on opening new window in Text Mate 2, I now threw together small script to do the same in Sublime Text 2. While Sublime Text 2 is superb text editor, it is not Mac native, thus it’s even less probable that a new Mac-style Dock icon menu will appear in […]

Often I find myself in a situation where I need to quickly paste some text and edit it a bit. Switching to TextMate also switches spaces to my last TM session, which might not be my current space. With other programs (and TextMate 1 for that matter) this can be overcome by selecting “New file” […]

If you use iPhoto to manage your photos and you have deleted a bunch of them either because they weren’t so good or perhaps moved to other library using iPhoto Library Manager, you notice that disk space hasn’t been freed. Fear not. iPhoto Trash iPhoto uses its own trashcan to store deleted photos for easy […]

Some time ago Apple game out with the AirPlay feature (an upgraded AirTunes) which enables iOS devices and iTunes play music and videos on a remote device.   In our office we have a Linux box, a set of speakers and a few laptops sporting Mac and Windows. Tonight I set out with a goal to […]

Mac OS X Lion has a ton of new features and not the least of them is the conversation view that makes it look much in like Gmail. Still, unlike Gmail, by default shows only incoming conversation and omits sent messages, unless one presses the “Show related messages” button. Fortunately there is a […]
