…on the mac

Nothing in particular, just more things getting checked off my list.

  • Using DoubleCommand, I was able to remap the extra enter key as a forward delete! This program is supposed to also help remap keys from a PC keyboard, but either I don’t get it, or it doesn’t work.
  • MacBook with a closed lid is in sleep mode. But, connect and external display, keyboard and mouse and it comes back to life automagically, turning said MacBook into a desktop workstation without enough USB ports to be useful.
  • The above trick was really cool when I discovered it. It will help in my quest to go Mac only as much as possible.

    Speaking of which…

    I had to use the Dell the other day. Have to use it again this weekend. I used to think that was a really nice machine. After spending 2 weeks with the Mac, I can honestly say I can’t wait to get Windows on this thing. That Dell is so bulky! And what’s with the 2 button mouse? Honestly, I would have never thought I would like that, but on a laptop, it really makes sense. When I need right click abilities, I almost always have the logitech plugged in. Otherwise, the occasional tap of the ctrl key doesn’t seem to be killing me.

    That’s all I got for now. I am having a very crappy week, but you will have to wait for the Sunday Post for that. It should be a juicy rant for all y’all to enjoy.

    Happy Friday!
